Miles Bonny: “Lumberjack Soul”
Former KJ alum is bringing it heavy it with this album.
Miles Bonny, KU and KJHK alumnus, has made a name for himself by producing some of the great local hip hop albums such as SoundsGood and Al Japro. But he also has his own music, too! Combining his love and talent at hip hop production, taste for solid soul music, his trumpet skills, and his own singing, Miles Bonny creates a magnificent piece of art. The album is impossible to put solely in one genre with acoustic guitars in one song (#6) to heavy but uplifting hip hop type beats (#5) to trumpets (#7) all within a 3 song span. The album has something for everyone, soulful ballads, hip hop production, classical jazz trumpets, etc. Everyone should explore this album.
