Hardwork Movement is a 9-piece hip-hop group based out of Philadelphia, comprised of 4 MCs backed by a 5-piece live band. The band pairs a cross-genre style of music drawing on hip-hop and neo-soul influences, with an infectiously high-energy live performance. Selling out all of their headlined shows in Philly, Hardwork has performed all over the country, from SXSW in Austin, TX to Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE, and has opened for legendary hip-hop acts such as Talib Kweli and GZA to Method Man and Redman.


Martronimous is a Philly-based trumpet player and producer blending hip-hop, jazz, and experimental music. His current music deals with the theme of incompleteness: unknowns, journeys in music and queerness, and chasing dreams.


Airy sounds descending from the canopy, a serene celestial spirit. Chris Thornton on guitar, Dani Gershkoff on vox/flute, Joe Perullo on drums and Yeho Bostick on bass.
