New iD the Poet Album 2018

iD’s yet to be titled EP enlists a variety of narratives from vastly different time periods. Live musicians and guest producers expand his usual cinematic landscape of Hip Hop. Made of short stories documenting the rise and fall of civilizations, iD’s new album is an anthology of stories throughout time.


Listen to iD’s New Single “Built To Break”

Listen to the new single “Built to Break” and pre-order Work Epic 2 today.

iD releases his second EP in the Work Epic series Monday September 20th.

This five song concept album will be released on limited cassette tapes that include B-sides of unreleased collaborations, live performances, and instrumentals.

iD the Poet is featured on a new release from Modern American Village Music (MAVM), a project by close friend and collaborator Bob Kostlan. iD and Kostlan worked together to form Genius of Soul in 2006. Listen below-


Kendall Carter and Sol-Omen Team Up to Create a Schizophrenic Masterpiece in “The Right To Know”

Kendall Carter and Sol-Omen team up to create a schizophrenic masterpiece in “The Right To Know”. With Kendall Carter providing the musical foundation and Sol-Omen the vocals, a unique sound is formed; laid-back lo-fi boom-bap laced with fiery raps. Sol-Omen’s passionate political abstractions weave well with the spaced-out grime Kendall Carter brings. A nitroglycerin combination keeps you listening. Kendall Carter is a veteran beatsmith and this album highlights how musically versatile his style is. His new album is due out 2016. Support-


iD & The Cosmic Sea perform for NPR Tiny Desk contest

I’ve been enjoying NPR Tiny Desk Concerts for awhile now; the live performances show spotlight the personal nature of the artists. I’ve also been frustrated at the difficulty and cost of making a music video that lives up to song. This turned out to be the perfect opportunity to make something that added to the music, but didn’t take years or debt to make. The Cosmic Sea are OpenOptics + Abigail Dearden- good friends and a gifted duo I’m honored to create with.
