Spit Fire Save The Matches Radio (Ingram Street)
Ingram Street is an R&B vocal duo that consists of brothers, Howard “Minquel” Ingram & Daniel “Woody” Ingram.  They have been singing, performing, and writing songs since the ages of six and four years old.  Early influences include The Jacksons, Stevie Wonder, Prince, and New Edition.   They got their professional start performing in showcases around Columbus, Ohio throughout their school years.  They went on to record two albums with a five member vocal group called Up 2 Par which would pattern their sound after soul groups such as The Temptations and Boyz II Men.  Now a duo rebranded as Ingram Street, the brothers released their first album entitled Escapism which spawned the fan favorite "Don't Disturb This Groove." It became popular with DJ's worldwide as several remixes of the song can be found on various music platforms. Their second album "Paint the Town" released in late 2020 spawned several singles that were successful across several digital radio platforms around the world including the #1 song "The Friend Zone" produced by Brandon "B-Jazz" Scott. The album charted as high as #6 on the UK Soul Chart. "Paint The Town” features tracks produced by renowned composer, Preston Glass.  Preston produced two songs on the project.  The first single, “Beautiful Possibility” and another ballad entitled “Keepin’ It Special.”  Both songs are co-written by Temptations’ group member Ron Tyson.    Ingram Street rounds out the writing and production of the album along with their longtime writing and production partner, Irving Johnson, who was also a member of the group, Up 2 Par.  The album is a nice mix of quiet storm soul ballads, contemporary pop, and some Chicago style steppers grooves.  The feel of the album is a nice balance of the music that influenced the group in their early years but also the music that influences them even today.  Artists such as Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, The Weekend, H.E.R., and Daniel Ceasar come to mind when listening to "Paint the Town."

Spit Fire Save the Matches Radio ( Spin 4th )
SPIN4th, also known as Superb Procurer of Ingenious Narrations to the 4th Power, is a hip hop artist and producer. He first gained recognition as a member of the legendary underground hip hop trio, Yaggfu Front, in the early 90s. The group was known for their unique blend of jazz and boom bap, infused with layers of sound and witty lyricism that covered everything from everyday events to absurd adventures. Before his time with Yaggfu Front, SPIN4th was cutting his teeth in the small town of Kinston, NC. He was introduced to DJing at the young age of 15 by his cousin, Jock from East Orange, NJ, and started rocking in his father's night club soon after. This provided him with the opportunity to meet like-minded individuals who were serious about hip hop, and he began to learn about drum machines, break beats, and sampling. After attending college in Raleigh, NC, SPIN4th met the rest of his crew: Jingle Bell, who lived in his dorm, and Deranged and Damage, who he met at WKNC radio at NCSU. Together, they formed Yaggfu Front and began making records in the original NC flavor. SPIN4th also began to seriously dabble in production, learning the ins and outs of the Akai, Ensoniq, and Emu samplers. Despite gaining notoriety with Yaggfu Front and fashioning a new production style with their album "Action Packed Adventure," the group became victims of the cool down of the golden era of hip hop and the industry's switch to a more aggressive form of rap. At this time, SPIN4th put the mic down and focused on honing his production skills and crafting his own unique style. After taking a hiatus of about five years, SPIN4th picked up the mic again, blending his new style of rhyme with the new style of beats. For the next 15 years, he continued to have fun with hip hop while also becoming an IT professional in the background. Now, with the 50th anniversary of hip hop upon us, SPIN4th is gearing up to release new music and be a part of this monumental occasion. Fans can expect a wild ride from this hip hop veteran.
