Reels Green (CD Release)
Reels Green is a creative collective from Chicago, Illinois. Formed in 2012, Singer/Songwriters Ben Hoffmann, Alec Lehrman and Andrew Furth joined Drummer/Producer Chresten Hyde and other various collaborators to bring to life a triumphant fusion of songwriting, composition & improvisational musicianship.
Their music aims to prove the word “genre” is antiquated and irrelevant. #reelsmusic is a category all its own - defined by the sounds & words that Reels Green collectively enjoys with the rest of the world.
This is Reels Green.
Treehouse is a hip-hop trio that was formed in Chicago, IL. Insightful lyricism is paired seamlessly with a rhythm section, resulting in a sound that redefines hip-hop. Although their music is created in-house, Treehouse does not forget the importance of artistic collaboration.
