Sammy Adams
Sammy Adams
Boston's Sammy Adams caused quite a stir in 2010 when his debut album topped the online hip-hop charts the week of its release. Samuel Adams Wisner was a senior at Trinity College in Hartford when he decided to inject some attitude into Asher Roth's hit "I Love College." With the results posted online under the name Sam Adams, his answer song, "I Hate College," made the rapper an Internet star in 2009.

On the strength of his independently released album "Boston's Boy," and mixtapes like "Party Records" and "Into the Wild," Sammy built through touring colleges and clubs across the country, and signed with RCA Records in 2012. Since then, the singer, songwriter, and producer has been in the studio with such collaborators as Pharrell Williams, Ryan Tedder, Mike Posner, Bei Maejor, Supa Dups, Afrojack, Matty Trump, and Vinylz, and others, working on his debut album.
Cris Cab
Cris Cab
Cris Cab leaps off a couch, playfully taunting a friend during a game of FIFA. It's a familiar scene for many his age, though not for the 19-year-old whose resume reads like this: mentored by Pharrell Williams; recording partner of Wyclef Jean; support act to O.A.R., Matisyahu, T-Pain and Gym Class Heroes; and proud owner of over 7 million YouTube views. He doesn't take much time off.

Still, Cris' success is not defined by his age. These accolades would be impressive for any artist. Cris Cab's musical promise is framed by the sponge-like enthusiasm with which he approaches recording, the texture of his voice echoing through concert halls and headsets, and his fresh fusion of pop, reggae, and soul.

Cris Cab was born to Cuban parents in Miami, Florida. By the age of five he begged his parents for a guitar, wanting both to best a friend at the school talent show, and learn the James Bond theme song. As he practiced and grew older, he dug through old records: The Police, Beatles, and Stones. He spent summers in the Bahamas with his family. His musical palate widened: Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, and Gregory Isaacs.

At 14, Cris' father bought him his first studio sessions. He became a musician with his feet in multiple words: old and new, the States and the Caribbean. By chance meeting, Cris played his early demos for Pharrell Williams. Pharrell was impressed, but Cris' talents were raw and unpolished. Heeding the super-producer's advice, Cris practiced relentlessly, focused on songwriting, and played any gig he was allowed into. Three years later, Cris and Pharrell met again. This time, Pharrell was sold, citing "He's just getting warmed up, but this kid is the future."

In 2011, Cris signed a management deal. He released a series of videos, soon becoming popular on blogs from PerezHilton to Billboard. The most successful of these was a cover of Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow," amassing 100,000 views in its first week. The dialogue between Cris and his fans grew exponentially, resulting in the well-received EP, Foreword, and its original single, "Good Girls."

"Good Girls" brought Cris a broader audience, including Wyclef Jean. The two met while Cris was on tour in New York supporting his release. Wyclef quickly became a second mentor, saying, "Playing with Cris is like drinking water. It just flows."

2012 saw the release of Cris Cab's full-length mixtape, Echo Boom (currently downloaded over 300,000 times). Named for the multi-cultural, wired generation born between 1982 and 1995, Echo Boom featured production from Cris, longtime collaborator PJ McGinnis, Wyclef, Pharrell, Supa Dupes, and 88 Keys.

With this continued momentum, Cris signed with Mercury Records. He released his debut single, "Good Girls (Don't Grow On Trees)." The track, a re-imagined version of his earlier release, was written by Pharrell, produced by Wyclef, and features Big Sean.

On a day like today, Cris Cab's friends are in school, and as are his fans. These days the line between the two is increasingly blurred. His generation only knows a world where the relationship between artist and fan is one of transparency and celebrated, mutual interest. Fine by Cris. He was born to be approachable. "My music," he says, "is about shared experience."
