Trouble In The Streets is a high energy musical experience comprised of songwriting duo Nnedi Nebula (singer, lyricist, multi-instrumentalist) and Andy Leonard (producer, sound designer, multi-instrumentalist), along with newest member, powerhouse drummer Kenny Schwartz.
Everything about the group is designed to defy expectation. During a time of conformity, they've dispensed with genre limitations and crafted a style and sound all their own – one that draws from hip-hop, Nigerian Funk, electronica, IDM, synth-wave, drum and bass, dream pop, neo-soul, rock and everything in between. At their explosive concerts, the line between audience and band is blurred by the approachability of the musicians and the enthusiasm of their listeners. Nnedi's lyrics are frequently confrontational and uncompromising, but they are hopeful, too; an invitation to other outsiders to join the rebellion. Putting together novel combinations of sounds, taking left turns, astonishing fans with the intensity of their performances – that's what the sonic agitators in Trouble In The Streets do.
