Birthed in Southeast DC, Black Alley is known for pushing the art of music to its rhythmic limits. Determined to create a unique musical elixir, Black Alley takes the finest ingredients of trap, rock and go-go to create their own genre-bending sound called #HoodRock or “soul garage”, a blend of funk, jazz, soul, and rock.
Black Alley have released two independent releases. In 2012, the band released “Soul. Swagger. Rock. Sneakers”. The 16-track compilation features original music from Black Alley in collaboration with Raheem DeVaughn, Nicolas Ryan Grant and Phil Ade. Their follow up album, “Black Alley: Live from the RNR Hotel” is the live recording project chronicling their performance at their album release event. Black Alley has shared the stage with artists like
Common, Eryhah Badu, Hiatus Kaiyote, Wale, Meek Mill, Drake, and Chrisette Michele just to name a few.
