ST. LOUIS RAPPER MAKES HIP HOP EP OUT OF ORIGINAL SONNETS.

Feb 5th- Jason and the Beast have just released "The Birth of the Beast," a five song Hip-Hop EP made out of original sonnets that put a modern spin on classic literature. Webster defines a sonnet as: a fixed verse form of Italian origin consisting of 14 lines that are typically 5-foot iambics rhyming according to a prescribed scheme; also: a poem in this pattern.

The CD features beats produced by Jason and the Beast's live DJ, Jerry Hill (DJ Uptown) and as well as beats co-produced by Jason and Indie rockers from such bands as The Floating City and Ghost in Light. It was recorded at Yellow Hat Studios in St. Louis.
Thanks to all these musicians:
Mic Boshans (Drums, Found Object Percussion)
Elaine Holtz (Keys)
Dan Meehan (Guitar, Keys, Bass)
Dan McKenzie (Fife, Bass, Vibes, Atari)
Emily Sudholt (Vocals)
Josh Evans (Engineering/ Bass/ Guitar)
Shae Moseley (Drums, Bass, Backing Vocals)
Will Jones (Producing/ Engineering)

The cover art and liner notes double as an 8 page comic book written by Jason Braun and drawn by Matt Kindt. Kindt's first book was chosen by Time magazine for their top 10 graphic novels of the year in 2001.

Jason Braun a.k.a. Jason and the Beast, has been performing Hip Hop Poetry for over seven years. In that time he has been a featured guest of Marc Kelly Smith(the creator of Slam Poetry) at The Green Mill in Chicago, published poems along side Maya Angelou in Drumvoices Revue, and shared billing on shows with B.B. King, the Black Crowes, the Wallflowers, Robert Randolph, Nite Owl, Copywrite, Pigeon John, Yea Big + Kid Static, Sole and the Skyryder Band, Grand Buffet, Gil Mantera's Party Dream, and many more.

but Sage Francis and Saul Williams."
-Bryan J. Sutter, Playback STL

"...bring(s) literary sensibilities to hip-hop rhymes."
-Christian Schaeffer, The Riverfront Times

"he ravaged the stage and set the audience ablaze."
-Suzanne M.Rogers, The Current
