Hailing from Avalon Park on Chicago's South Side, Six in the Mix presents a riff-driven hybrid of hard hitting rock and rap on their debut single "Coming Into Me". Lyrically, the track bravely confronts the search for empowerment and identity that we all experience in our formative years.
The band members are students in The Intonation Music Workshop, a Chicago-based non-profit which empowers children to become rock stars on every stage in life through innovative music education. Using donated instruments and a unique pop band curriculum, IMW's after-school music program provides kids age 6-17, who would not otherwise have the opportunity, with access to instruments, instruction and performances in a safe and upbeat environment.
The single is the 5th in a series of student tracks which will be released later this year on a compilation.
