The compelling collection of artists that is Last Gasp has made waves that would leave the pacific envious.
Their raw yet passion-filled live performances have intrigued thousands in a little over a year. Midwest Fest, Lamplight Festival, and the Black Arts Fest have all served host to the band's groove. .Made up of Western Michigan Music students and local musicians, the diverse group has been brought together by a mutual love of art. Their live arrangements are reminiscent of The Internet, The Roots, and Hiatus Kaiyote. This live sound is then fused with a hip-hop sound similar to the 9th Wonder, or the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League. Melodic cello lines, fuzzed-out guitar leads, and gospel piano all set a beautiful soundscape underneath the soulful voices of Ashley Hicks and Lakeshore Drew.
