Apples and Spades

Started performing:  Late last year, but rapper Maxx, who's a freshmen in college, started rapping when he was in third grade.

From: Little Rock.

Members: Sam Baxter (bass), Max Farrell AKA Maxx (raps), Lucas Murray (guitar) and Daniel Olah (drums).

Albums: Solo, Maxx's released "The Rise of Maxxism," which, for a limited time, he's giving away as a free download that also includes Apples and Spades' lead single, "My Soul." The band's finishing an EP for release in the near future, too.

Sounds like: Jazz-funk rap. Dexterous flow meets serious instrumental chops.

Family ties: Media types should be representing. Farrell's mom is Olivia Farrell, CEO of the Arkansas Business Publishing Group.

Music:

"My Soul"



"Rap Like So"
