When this pandemic began back in March of 2020, Benjamin Oaks took the free time (after being laid of from his house painting job) to begin producing again. He noticed a lot of his new musician friends in Lancaster, PA were out of gigs. So he took his stimulus money asked 10 of them to collaborate for his next solo album.
By the 4th or 5th track (“Bars” specifically) it became clear that it became time to…
“GET THE BAND BACK TOGETHER!”
Nick the Blacklisted & 4T (who appeared on the 1st Bones Culture compilation album “The Full Effect”, the second “SAMSARA”, the upcoming 3rd “Essential Goodness”) also happen to live not too far from Benjamin Oaks in Lancaster, PA.
PINK i was looking for a producer to make pop with since his usual musical theatre gigs are on hold.
JMissy & BenOaks had been trying to collab for a few years now.
All the pieces came together around the same time. Android Eddie & 66notes also recently re-inspired to drop lyrical bombs!
