about

After 10 years of incessant touring and relentless cultural activism since the duo's last album, Climbing PoeTree prepares to release a new collection of 17 rebel-rousing anthems, bilingual ballads, and unconventional love songs.

Climbing PoeTree brought together a team of 33 world-class musicians, vocalists, and producers led by the legendary Toshi Reagon to translate their brazen lyricism into soulful compositions bridging electronic music and live instrumentation, and uniting hip-hop, rock, blues, folk, and Afro-Latin beats.

INTRINSIC explores the inescapable network of mutuality that binds our existence through the ricochet of oppression and the reciprocity of liberation, reminding us that we all belong to each other.

The first 4 singles off INTRINSIC available exclusively to our collaborators and Kickstarter backers in advance of the official release date!

The whole album will drop in March 2017, with 4 music videos and single releases that will be released leading up.
