Aquakulture

Aquakultre

I was introduced to Lance by the wonderful Kate and Emma of The Magic Project. They invited us to speak on a public panel discussion about some of the challenges of being a Black male in Halifax. I was re-introduced to Lance as aquakultre shortly after, when he performed as part of the event. I was blown away by his presence as a performer his voice and his ability to make music that feels commercial yet raw enough that the streets will still f*ck with it. With a major co-sign from CBC, when he was selected as the winner of Searchlight 2018, he'll get a chance to share his voice with a much larger audience. Follow the drip!
