Philadelphia-based collective Killiam Shakespeare teams with DJ Jazzy Jeff for “Crispus Attucks”
Killiam Shakespeare is a Philadelphia-based collective headed by Corey Bernhard and Steve McKie. Both musicians have been cutting their chops for years, working with soul and R&B artists like Jill Scott, Bilal, Estelle, and Sy Smith. Their album A Town Called Elsewhere will be released on November 2, and today, they drop the first single for the song “Crispus Attucks,” which features the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff on the cuts.
A Town Called Elsewhere is mostly an instrumental opus, with each track blending into the other. Hard-hitting beats through programming and live instrumentation, the album blends hip-hop and electronic music with a unique musical sensibility from their jazz training and their experience working with other musicians onstage and in the studio. The vocal tracks are meticulously placed in the album sequencing to further help the storytelling aspect of the album, with additional features from Bilal, Chris Turner, and Amber Navran.
A Town Called Elsewhere is out November 2. Pre-order the album today.
