I absolutely love coming across refreshingly awesome music. Throw in some live instrumentation and you’ve completely won me over. Such is the case with NYC based Hip Hop band, Sibling. The 6-piece band fuses Jazz, Rock, Funk, Classical and of course, Hip Hop for one heck of a musical concoction! The band, comprised of Eli Black (vocals), Halley Hiatt (vocals), Jason Berman (guitar), Eldad Arad (bass), Jett Carter (drums), and Mike Farrell (sax), have showcased their talents in events and on stages throughout NYC, including The Knitting Factory, Afropunk’s Battle of the Bands, CMJ Festival, Arlene’s Grocery, Mercury Lounge and more. They’ve also toured in other areas throughout the Northeast such as New Jersey and various states in New England.

Now, their self-titled debut EP, offers something for everybody. The band’s eclectic sound is truly unique and caters to an array of genres. Each band member’s musical influences and backgrounds is reflected in their diverse sound. Take a listen for yourself below. - Maria Myraine

Bio

  • Formed in the Spring of 2012 in NYC, Sibling fuses the raw, visceral beats of hip hop and the spontaneous, free-spirited lines of jazz and blues, among other influences. The result is an original and distinct sound of thought provoking lyrics and infectious, body-rocking grooves - a sound which has been described as “Frighteningly ambitious”. 
  • Their frontman, MC Eli Black, is a core member of the Legendary Ciphers, a popular freestyle session every Friday at Union Square. He is also regularly featured at NYC's most popular freestyle jam session "The Lesson" at Arlenes grocery.  Eli Black has also been featured on the Huffington Post and is a recent winner of MC Challenge 2016 and will be competing in the world finals in Switzerland. 
  • As a band, Sibling has rocked crowds at numerous NYC venues including The Knitting Factory, CMJ Music Festival, The Shapeshifter Lab, Afropunk Battle of the Bands, The Bitter End, Brooklyn Music Festival, Fontana’s, Arlene's Grocery, Mercury Lounge, the Paperbox, Friends and Lovers, the Rock Shop, Spike Hill, NuBlu, Ella Lounge, The Jersey Shore Festival etc.
  •  They have been featured on the “The Deli Magazine, "ConcrtMe" and "We Run the Underground", and have collaborated with Converse and Indaba Music on their "Rubber Tracks" project.  Sibling is quickly carving out a name for itself in the NYC indie music scene.
