Today, or late last night, local Springfield solo artist Ty Witty released a new acoustic seven-track album called Embers. As far as we know the release is only available on Apple Music right now, which you can check out right here. The release will possibly be available on other streaming platforms later on.
Ty Witty is featured on the cover of this month’s issue of Activator Magazine, which includes a full interview about the new album and more. There are no live performances lined up that we know of. Ty released another album, For When It Rains last year. We’ve also added this one to our Springfield album archive, bringing us to a total of 502 releases.
Wow, that was too long of a break for us not having shows these past couple of weeks! We are ready to get back into the swing of things tonight, with this killer hip hop show lined up! There are SEVEN performers all on the bill tonight, ALL of which have not yet performed at our new space here downtown. At the top of the bill we have the queen of 217 hip hop and one of the best in our area, T-Roni. T-Roni performed at Black Sheep as well as all over the country and has won numerous contests for her performances. Also on this show we have long running local hip hop act Dirty Da Don performing here at Dumb Records for the first time. Stream a new song featuring both Dirty Da Don and T-Roni below. CLUTCH is another one on the bill, a long time performer here in town and had been on a few shows back at Black Sheep! Before that we are gonna Fly Rich! With Fly Rich! Who else do we got… OM33ZY from the area who has worked with a good number of other local artists and performed a few times at Black Sheep. Towards the beginning of the lineup we got a newer artist going by “Extravagant.” Opening things up is the first Springfield performance for BabyPac, who moved here from Galesburg, IL a couple of years ago.
All of this starts at 7:30pm and admission is $7. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good list of everything we have coming up at Dumb Records in the near future.
