After fronting the wildly popular funk-soul band, SugarBad, for five years, and touring the world from 2016-2017 with Cirque du Soleil in KOOZA as the 'Soul Singer', RaeMe is ready to stay in the states to focus on her solo project, for which she is writing sexy feel good pop songs with her collaborator, multi-instrumentalist Frank Cogliano.
An edgy and dramatic artist with a reverence for the mystical, Diana Hickman blends the quirky stylings of avant pop with the deep grooves and harmonic sophistication of soul, R&B and jazz. A California native, Hickman relocated to the east coast over a decade ago to attend Boston Conservatory and then settled into a new life in one of the world’s creative capitals, New York City. With appearances at big name clubs including the Blue Note Jazz Club, The Iridium, and Brooklyn Bowl, as well as extensive regional tours, Hickman has distilled her stage presence to smokey smooth perfection. Her sound channels singular giants such as Kate Bush, Bjork, Erykah Badu and Amy Winehouse without ever falling into parody.
Edwin is Jacob and Matthew Boll. They've played music together throughout their lives but started Edwin only year ago when their previous band was breaking up, and with it much of the things they'd come to rely upon.

The brothers sojourned away from the city and up to the snowy woods of Eau Claire, Wisconsin on the invitation of producer and Bon Iver band member S. Carey. You Have No Idea, Man was made at "Hive" - the name that Brian Joseph calls his barn where he makes records, having worked with the likes of Sufjan Stevens and Paul Simon. With Brian behind the board, Sean Carey producing and playing drums, the brothers started again... You Have No Idea, Man
