Baltimore music group Edjacated Phools’ are no strangers to the music industry. From unique sounds to top shelf production, their work definitely stands apart. Their ambition and focus has primed the artists to exceed expectations and to become a highly sought out talent by professionals. Don’t miss out on Edjacated Phools because the musicians have something the listeners have always wanted.

The 7 piece band was formed in 2014 and together they play a unique blend of rock, ska, hip hop, and reggae to create their own signature brand of music. Edjacated Phools represent the positive in life while still addressing the complex nature of the world they live in. They strive to unite people and embrace their time here on this earth through the connection of music. They have been blessed to play great shows with amazing bands including The Expendables, Passafire, Tunnelvision, and many more.

"Edjacated Phools, The Milestones, and Western Star blew up at the Warehouse, 12/19"

A chilly, dark Saturday on the other side of some tracks in Baltimore found this writer attending a killer show at The Warehouse, a small venue with the perfect amount of sketchiness and featuring cheap beer, plenty of graffiti, and a working toilet. First onstage was Western Star, a four-piece heavily influenced by alt and classic rock. High octane riffs, croony vocals, and evocative lyrics, the band is equal parts Modest Mouse and Van Zant Band in their musicality. Frontman Max Jeffers brought great energy to the stage, hair flying, and the instrumentals were fantastic, recalling the stylings of Jimi Hendrix.

The Milestones are quickly becoming an establishment-worthy act in the Baltimore scene. Cobbling together an indie style with dance-worthy melodies, the band put on a fantastic show, gripping the audience's attention immediately and not letting it go until the last guitar note faded on the amps. A particular standout song, UFO (see below) was great live, with expert guitar pieces and crashing drum segments. The band recently put an EP called Honey and listening is highly recommended, especially for a highway playlist.

Closing out the night was rap-reggae-rock fusion group Edjacated Phools. A band of seven, they surprised with their rap skills and seamless reggae techniques. Slick guitars, sick, booming vocals, and melodic keyboard playing brought together an exciting and fun performance and their audience interaction was on point. With semi-political and feel-good verses, the Phools are reminiscent of Sublime and Dirty Heads, yet distinctive in their own right. - The Deli Magazine

Bio

The Edjacated Phools are a 6-piece fusion band based in Baltimore, MD. Comprised of Devine Barone (drums), Tyler Garrison (bass), Nick Hatzis, (vocals) Kyle Sappington (vocals), Logan Sappington (guitar, vocals), and Ben Yancheski (keys), they combine a unique blend of rock, reggae, hip-hop, ska and punk influences into a unique sound that is truly unlike any other band. Formed in 2014, the Edjacated Phools have been making noise on the east coast with their dynamic guitar playing, smooth basslines and booming vocals, complemented with melodic keyboards, intricate leads, intense drums and hip-hop icing to complete their powerful sound. This past April, the Edjacated Phools recorded and released their EP under legendary reggae producer Jim Fox (Inner Circle, Rebelution, SOJA, The Wailers, Don Carlos) at Lion and Fox Studios in College Park, MD.

The Edjacated Phools strive to connect with people through their socially conscious, fun-loving  and thought-provoking content. Even though the band is relatively young, they don’t limit their creativity, exploring new ways to relate with their audience and evolve their sound.

The band played its first show in January of 2015, and since then have had the privilege of playing as direct support to some amazing bands, including: The Expendables, Big Something, Passafire, Roots Of Creation, Higher Education, Pasadena, Bumpin Uglies, Stacked Like Pancakes, The Henchmen, Bencoolen, and Dale and the ZDubs. The band also recently had the honor of playing at the 35th Annual Artscape Festival in Baltimore, MD this past July, and also organized and curated the very first Hightopps Backstage Bash music festival in Baltimore County this past September.
