FatRat Da Czar w/ NewSC
FatRat Da Czar & NewSC - Columbia, SC
FatRat Da Czar, a pillar as well as pioneer to South Carolina’s hip-hop community, continues to add to his legacy. One of the most well known musicians in SC, from recording and producing to performing and hosting - FatRat Da Czar is all things hip-hop when it comes to the State of South Carolina. Performing countless dates, at countless venues, and making certified authoritative music throughout the nineties and early millennia, Fat Rat Da Czar has shared the stage with heavyweights like Snoop Dogg, Ghostface Killah, GZA, BONE Thugs N Harmony and countless more. Crafting Da ColdWar in 2006 with famed DJ Shekeese Tha Beast, then returning 2008 with the classic follow-up Da ColdWar 2: The Day Afta, 2012's critically acclaimed Inglorious Basterd and Da Cold War 3: Da Final Chapta - Fat Rat Da Czar single-handedly distinguished himself by pronouncing his importance to everyone able to hear his music. Now an Executive Partner for Columbia Hip-Hop Family Day: Love, Peace & Hip-Hop, co-owner of Streetside Records and OTR Films, and engineer at The Boom Room Recording Studio - he is a South Carolina force to be reckoned with.

NewSC - short for New Success Culture - collective is made of the 4 solo acts Cole Connor, Chadd Downing, Perfect G and Ran Bruce alongside the group Grand Royal - all handpicked and assembled by Czar himself. “The movement can’t begin and end with FatRat Da Czar, “ the emcee states, “what I am doing for NewSC is what is necessary for Hip-Hop is here to stay in SC. NewSC exemplifies the type of Hip-Hop artists that not only deserve to be a recognized part of the music community, but has the talent to continue to be at the forefront of pushing the creative boundaries of music from here long after FatRat Da Czar is gone."

Josh Roberts and The Hinges
Josh Roberts & The Hinges formed in early 2005 in Columbia, SC and immediately began touring and recording. Embedded in their style of rock and roll are blues, country, punk and soul influences that link elegant harmonies with the raunchy guitar work of Josh Roberts. Their powerful sound is raw and uncompromising, creating new rock and roll anthems that leave their dedicated fans speechless…and sometimes exhausted, yet always wanting more.

"I want to cross folk mystery with country and blues emotion and AC/DC power," said Josh Roberts. "We want to make melting pot American music, real rock and roll music with the roots showing."

Their first album, "The Sugar Bird Test" was released in September 2005. It's a bash-it-out, live-in-the-studio rock record, with vocal parties and spontaneous songwriting. The album is largely a love letter from Josh to Leslie, mixed with some traditional folk themes. "The Sugar Bird Test" received excellent reviews for its ear-blowing guitar riffs and catchy, engaging choruses.

In 2007, the band released "My War Cry is Amor," a cinematic, emotional and literary Thanksgiving dinner of rock. Although each song stands powerfully alone, this is truly an album, one that explores the dualities of man and God, love and war, and true life and death, all with virtuoso musicianship and the kind of happy accidents that made it exciting for the band to make and intriguing for fans to hear. Some songs were co-written by Ryan Monroe, a member of Band of Horses and Josh's former bandmate in Captain Easy.
