They received the 2012 San Antonio Current's Music Award for Best Hip-Hop group. Their debut album Storytellers, released in January of 2011, won critical acclaim. A California and Texas tour gave them plenty of stage time and helped to solidify their live show. Performances at Fiesta del Mercado, Luminaria Arts Festival, and Una Noche de La Gloria help make them hometown heros. "In One Ear, Out The Other" is the band's sophomore effort. It was released in November of 2012. It quickly gained acclaim from others around the industry. After a couple of short Texas tours the band is gearing up for 2013 SXSW and Luminaria festivals.
