Lincoln Marshall is comprised of two established emcees who decided to join forces..."In order to rekindle the flame that is the foundation in which they believe in they banded together as one force in the form of, Lincoln Marshall." - Lincoln Marshall

Approach and Milkdrop came together as Lincoln Marshall and released their first single Dirt in June of 2015 (FREE download here), which was taken off their debut album Weight. The single was strongly received by their newly found fan base, as well as with local press stating, "Staying true to their forms, the track produces a high energy perfect for the ever-busy summer months. " - I Heart Local Music.

Since then, the group released their second album titled Water in June of 2016, and next up will be the final album in the trilogy titled "Wisdom".

What makes Lincoln work, and what makes this process work is that WE get along.
— Approach
Weight - Water - Wisdom, it’s three elements. We left it open to interpretation for people to get the pieces they need from it.
— Milkdrop

However, trust that the concept goes even deeper than that, both lyrically, musically and in each album's production, which we discuss heavily in the interview.

We are excited to have Lincoln Marshall playing our Sound Machine ØØ4 event on January 14th at the Record Bar. Be sure to listen through the entire interview as we ask Lincoln Marshall our standard Sound Machine questions and spin a few tracks off Water.
