Hosted by music/pop culture journalist Kelly “K-Fresh” Frazier, Fresh is the Word aims to tell the stories from a variety of different voices including women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community through the artistic lens of pop culture. Joined by comic creators, authors, actors, comedians, photographers, sex workers, scientists, athletes, and even other podcasters, we talk about many topics including overcoming creative obstacles, representation in the arts, gender and sexuality issues, LGBTQ issues, and other topics adjacent to lifestyle and pop culture.
The guest for this episode is Grammy Award winning Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger and producer Sly5thAve, who just released his new album What It Is via Tru Thoughts. We do on a track-by-track breakdown of the new album and how his musical upbringing influences his work. We also talk about his move to New York over a decade ago where he found a home at The Clubhouse (AKA The Clubcasa or BKLN1834), home to a host of New York talent, along with the making of his critically acclaimed project The Invisible Man: An Orchestral Tribute to Dr. Dre.
