Shane “SF1” Franklin, a drummer, music producer, dancer, actor and emcee who began his career in performance. Born in Denver, Colorado Mr. Franklin started as a member of the drama group and the children and youth choirs in church. A graduate of Denver School of the Arts/ Career Education Center Mr. Franklin studied both music and audio engineering. Upon completion of high school he continued his education at Berklee College of Music and received his Bachelors Degree in Music Business Management
from the University of Colorado Denver. SF1 plans to continue to inspire and touch the world with his music and performance ability as a whole.
Mr. Franklin began emceeing at the age of nine, influenced by his cousin EM3 and his father, Dank Emcee. He is a trained musician, actor, dancer and a percussionist that has trained with the late Betty Ryer, John “Mr. Tap Dance” Williams, Judy “Fatu” Henderson, Stephan Griffin, Ernesto Diaz, Eguie Castillo, Jo Bunton Keel and Cleo Parker Robinson. He has appeared in The Eulipions “The Black Nativity”, Cleo Parker Robinson Dance “Granny Dances to a Holiday Drum” and The Colorado Opera’s “Porgy and Bess” to name a few. As an avid musician he has directed music in such productions as, “Stepping to a New Day” & “A Journey through Five Points.”
Staying with a true entrepreneur’s spirit Mr. Franklin founded Tega’s Percussionary Groove Session, Whymzical Notationz and now has company called Cornbread Entertainment, which showcases & develops new talent and provides music production through SF1 Productions. These are the integrated elements that contributed to the production of the “Cornbread” album.
In December of 2009 Mr. Franklin released his debut hip-hop album entitled “Cornbread”. The album contains 12 tracks that feature a vast arrangement of traditional hip hop, African and Latin influenced rhythms with a fusion jazz spice top with an Andre 3000 twang. Backed up by his band Whymzical Notationz, a four piece all genre
band whom Shane also plays drums with when they perform as a group. His singles
“Love Story” and “Yes Yes Ya’ll” are available for download at www.cdbaby.com.
In 2012, SF1 released his sophomore album “Inamorata”. Inamorata, which is Italian for A woman with whom one is in love or has an intimate relationship, is a “rollercoaster of love” album to its core. From the initial meeting between a man and woman, to the head over heels feeling, to the break up, to the calm after the storm. SF1 has teamed up with Music Producer and long time friend Cesar Gonzalez to craft a fresh sound that integrates Afro Cuban, West African, Middle Eastern, Jazz, and Rock all infused with a Hip Hop foundation. With amazing arrangements, an all-star cast of featured vocalists, and SF1’s creative song concepts, Inamorata captures the attention of every fan of love.
SF1 is sure to be considered one of today’s multidimensional talents that possess an array of skills that is sure to captivate and electrify any stage. Not your typical rap/hip hop artist of today but truly an artist in its true essence.

The Other Black
The Other Black
The Other Black, featuring Cosmic Slim (formerly of Air Dubai and Petals of Spain) is an experience unlike anything you have yet to observe in the Denver music market. Newly formed in the late Fall of 2012, this dynamic group started with a mere 9 members and has launched to upwards of 24. That's right, just about 30 musicians collaborating to bring you a unique sound and leave you with a smile in your soul. These are musicians that have already contributed successfully to the scene; from Birds Of A Feather, Bonnie & The Beard, Petals of Spain, The People's Abstract and more.
Needless to say, upon taking stage - this assortment of artistry commands it's presence. Their act has been compared to reading an old school Parliament comic book. In a nutshell, this crowd's get-up is wild, garish, & funky with fresh attire that makes you believe they MUST have a costume designer amongst them somewhere. In short, they are like watching a cartoon come to life.
The Other Black clearly simply loves what they do. Their soul-funk- do-wop mix with a modern squeeze endears them. People are on their feet when The Other Black hits the stage. If you haven't seen them yet, you will.
All songs are written and arranged by Cosmic Slim, with the exception of the few covers they perform honoring soul legends Sly & The Family Stone and Ray Charles.

S.T.O.I.C.
S.T.O.I.C. (Spit Truth Over Intricate Creations)
The definition of hip-hop. Adrenaline pumping beats mixed with clever and witty lyrics presents an unprecedented sound. Based out of Denver, CO, The Antagonist and MainEvent combine to form the hip-hop group S.T.O.I.C. Influenced by east coast hip hop of the mid 1990’s. This talented tandem formed in the late 1990’s but have become serious about recording and performing in the last 5 years. Their energetic and non-stop live show is something to behold. Their 45 to 60 minute set flows seamlessly from track to track without stopping. Their first CD, “A Gathering of the Masses” was an underground success. This CD gave fans a glimpse of what was to come from the duo. Their highly anticipated 2nd CD, “The Fate of the Great 13” is sure to give hip-hop heads everywhere something to bob their head to. MainEvent works his magic yet again by rhyming and producing all the music, while The Antagonist spits intricate lyrics to bring the whole thing together!!!
