2018 Countdown | NBOC

After his solo project Free As The Birds , Jay Phelps returned this year with a duo album under the moniker NBOC (Newborn Outcry). The project developed as Phelps and trombonist Courtney Brown (AKA Neeyz) hit the studio to experiment with their common passions of electronic music and Hip-Hop. Using many elements of both genres, the pair kept a sensibility of Jazz and world music as they created a distinct sound. You can feel the edgy desire to make something new, to assemble their unique and their common experiences in music into a cohesive statement.
