The Countdown 2017 | The Pollyseeds

Produced by Terrace Martin, led by the whole band, The Pollyseeds jumped onto the scene this year with a Crenshaw meets Detroit by way of Philly vibe. The band is a rotating cast of consummate musicians: Terrace Martin, Rose Gold, Brandon Eugene Owens, and Trevor Lawrence Jr, Robert Glasper, Kamasi Washington, Wyann Vaughn, Marlon Williams, Chris Cadenhead, Chachi (aka Problem), Craig Brockman, and Robert 'Sput' Searight. Their debut record, Sounds Of Crenshaw Vol 1, delivered an instantly recognizable Los Angeles soul sound. 

OVER TIME, THE ALBUM’S SUBTLE AMBITION BECOMES IMPOSSIBLE TO MISS. (SETH COLTER-WALLS, PITCHFORK)
The band is about progression. Never becoming comfortable. Always growing. And always pushing the envelope. Intention and Always is my favorite: Intention is legend. Intention is every sense of time to me. It’s so much flavor. And that’s my whole m.o. Just amazing. (Pollyseed Rose Gold)
