J Pope and the HearNow

8/4/2018 at 6:00 PM

The Baltimore-based HearNow’s sound is a musical exploration into the deepest pockets of soul and Hip Hop, lined with the dirty sonic lint of funk, as well as the sudden, sometimes unexpected twists of bebop and funk fusion. The music is topped with the lyrics of front woman J Pope, who zigs and zags between clever, lyrical melodies and rapid-fire rhymes with a free-feeling flow and a sophisticated swagger.
