About The Band

Trouble In The Streets is a dynamic duo, composed of vocalist, lyricist, keyboardist and bassist, Nnedi Nebula and
producer, keyboardist, bassist, Ableton wizard Andy Leonard. Everything about the group is designed to defy
expectation. During a time of conformity, they've dispensed with genre limitations and crafted a style and sound
all their own – one that draws from hip-hop, electronica, synth-wave, drum and bass, dream pop, neo-soul, rock
and everything in between. At their explosive concerts, the line between audience and band is blurred by the
approachability of the musicians and the enthusiasm of their listeners. Nnedi's lyrics are frequently
confrontational and uncompromising, but they are hopeful, too; an invitation to other outsiders to join the
rebellion. Putting together novel combinations of sounds, taking left turns, astonishing fans with the intensity of

their performances – that's what the sonic agitators in Trouble In The Streets do.

"Trouble in The Streets more than has it going on! They pour gasoline on it and then torch it. The melodies are raw,
supremely potent and primeval, while the rhythms pulse like some deity’s heart. And Agbaroji’s voice is purely and simply
nonpareil, projecting the force of a large-scale gamma emitter. It’s not just lit, it’s an inferno!" -HuffPost

" Trouble in the Streets plays the kind of music that makes you feel ready to overthrow the government: Power, Soul, and

Rock’n’Roll. This is more than a set, this is a work of art" -Boulder Beat
