Seattle rapper Grieves returns to deliver his fourth studio album, Winter & The Wolves, on Rhymesayers Entertainment. The insatiable, devil-may-care MC is well known for his meticulous exploration of life, love and loss, through a unique medley of hip-hop and soulful music. Together with B. Lewis, Grieves created 14 new tracks, combining organic pianos and guitars with boisterous synthesizers, to paint a colorful backdrop for his unique blend of rapping and singing.
A reflection on growth and maturity, Winter & The Wolves is about the instinctual fight for survival. It’s about suddenly finding that you’re all alone, facing countless hindrances to your livelihood, and having the courage to overcome them all. Tackling difficult obstacles like addiction and heartbreak, Grieves wrestles with the realization that life doesn’t get any easier as you get older. His signature combination of humor and gloom culminate to depict the struggle of a man’s inner turmoil between abandoning the dreams of his youth, and carving out a new path for himself in this world.
Grieves emerged in 2007 with his independently released album, Irreversible, which served as a platform for several years of touring with some of indie-rap’s finest; Atmosphere, Macklemore, P.O.S, Brother Ali, Cunninlynguists, and more. He didn’t achieve national acclaim until his debut on Rhymesayers in 2011, with the album Together/Apart, which hit #1 on the Billboard Heatseeker’s Chart, and #106 on the overall Billboard Top 200 chart. Since then, he’s been touring non-stop, headlining multiple national tours with sold-out rooms across the country.
Winter & the Wolves will be supported by full North American and European tours, with a re-developed live show including expanded band and light performances. As Grieves prepares to turn up the heat in 2014, don’t find yourself left alone in the cold.
Dem Atlas
Dem Atlas
Joshua Evans first began his journey penning poems as a
freshman in high school. After four years of being the frontman of his
high school band, he made a decision to go solo. deM atlaS was born.
Evans describes Dem Atlas as having two sides, despite only being one

"It's sort of like there's two of us," Evans says. "Dem is the
unenlightened and ignorant side, whereas Atlas is the mythic, holy
figure in control; he is all-powerful, all-knowing and all-seeing."

Dem used his musical experiences to propel himself into different textures
and sounds of music, ranging from Folk to Alt-Rock to Hip Hop. Moved
by art, friendship and spirituality, deM atlaS conveys through his
music the duality between Man & God, Ignorance & Brilliance,
Enlightenment & Obscurity.

Having spent the last year performing in and around Minneapolis
in support of his early 2013 debut EP release, Charle Brwn,
deM atlaS is ready to deliver his messages to a broader landscape.

City Pages' Jack Spencer comments on the EP:

"With a style that recalls underground West Coast legends like the
Pharcyde and Freestyle Fellowship, Dem Atlas brings crazy energy and
positive vibes to every track he touches. The quick-paced flow and
melodic voicing smoothly floats along beats as he talks about his
inner thoughts and feels a kinship with Charlie Brown. Charle Brwn
packs a big punch and a lot of emotion into a relatively short work,
and solidifies deM atlaS as a rapper to whom you should pay close
