In 2016, unbeknownst to each other, two DC artists were reckoning with themes of self-worth and their place in America, both quietly working to express these thoughts through their music.

Eventually these two artists met on a stage in Ivy City and knew they had to collaborate.

Late last year, that collaboration resulted in the Backbeat Underground single “She Don’t Love Me (Like I Do)” on Fort Knox Recordings featuring Aaron Abernathy himself on vocals – an allegory about the troubled relationship between marginalized persons and the country they love.

Around the same time, Abernathy released the critically acclaimed concept album “Dialogue” ​which follows the day in a life of a young man questioning the conventional wisdom surrounding him, with songs about ​”being black in America and how we’re better when we come together to love each other.”​

Inspired by the socially conscious “musical dialogue” in the early 70s by artists like Marvin Gaye and Sly Stone, both these contemporary soul artists are plotting a new conversation through message music and “songs of conscience.”
