DC's Own The Experience Brings The Funk To His First Ever Headlining Show to Songbyrd!
Hailing from our Nation’s Capital, rapper-singer-songwriter The Experience is putting his own soulful spin on the sounds that built the DMV’s music scene. Born-and-raised in DC into a household full of musicians, a young EXP would often find himself tagging along to gigs with his father who played a multitude of instruments in the legendary Go-Go bands Heaven Sent and Arye Rayde. After spending countless evenings watching his father jam out as well as most Sundays singing in the choir at his grandmother's church, his early introduction to Go-Go and Gospel would eventually inspire him to pick up the drums at the age of two and the rest, as they say, is history.
The Experience’s irresistibly bouncy sound seamlessly blends together elements of Hip-Hop, Funk and R&B while paying homage to his Go-Go and Gospel roots. He draws inspiration from the likes of D'Angelo, Jill Scott, and Drake as well as DC Go-Go powerhouses such as New Impressionz and The Backyard Band. His infectious personality, smooth delivery, and undeniable talent make any EXP show an Experience you won't soon forget.
Fresh off the release of his debut project, All For You?, The Experience is set to dominate the airwaves all summer long. Following the lead of DMV contemporaries like GoldLink, Innanet James, and Rico Nasty, The EXP is making his own way while staying true to himself and the city that made him.
