I am (sort of) a rapper...
Sur5ILL (pronounced ser-vahy-vuhl) is a rapper/producer/guitarist from Boston, MA. He began rapping at the age of 14 (which was approximately a million years ago) after being imbued with the spirit of hip-hop in the 1990s. Fortunately, the combination of the 1990s and a predominantly white private high school also saw the likes of grunge and alternative rock music greatly shape his musical palate.
Sur5ILL, the self-professed nerd, has been furiously rapping solo since the dissolution of the jam band, The LE Project, with which Sur5ILL was involved as a vocalist and rhythm guitarist from 2009 to 2012.

Zoë, a semi-professional magician featured in the documentary Magic Camp, offers a risque and edgy sense of humor.
