Shout-out!: Canary Sing

What up y’all!  On behalf of the Students 4 Hip Hop club, I wanna thank everyone for coming out to the Hip Hop for Justice event last night!  It really surpassed our expectations and your enthusiasm played a major part in that!  We have a lot of people to thank, but I’d like to kick off the thanks by showing all the artists that came out some love.

When it comes to showing love, Canary Sing definitely had plenty rocking the crowd last night.  Formed in 2006, the duo of Madeleine Clifford (MADLINES de lioness) and Hollis Wongwear (ISPIRE) rep the Pacific Northwest + the Bay and have performed across the country including at the Bumbershoot Festival, Under the Volcano Music Festival, and the San Francisco Mission Arts Project.  They have performed alongside artists like saul williams, binary star, talib kweli, dead prez, medusa, gabriel teodros, mystic, sabreena da witch & mohammed from P.R. as featured in the incredible documentary slingshot hip hop, piece, cristina orbe, and more of their favorite musicians and poets.  (Read more:http://www.myspace.com/canarysing#ixzz11bC5PjTo)  They have a mixtape out on iTunes called “Boss Ladies: A Mixtape” and have an EP out you can stream and download over the internet called “The Beautiful Baby EP”, which by listening to it will definitely make you want more Canary Sing.  Let’s hope they come back to perform real soon!
