JONNY GOOOD AND THE TRIPLE O’S
From LA, Jonny Goood and the Triple O’s are competing in this year’s Vans Warped Tour. Jonny Goood is the bass-hopper of the group, while Cole Vincent is on the guitar and John Broes on the drums. People may refer to Jonny as the hip hop Jimi Hendrix of our time, but there are multiple other influences including Prince, Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Warren G and many more.
Originally from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, Jonny has always been exposed music all his life mainly due to his parents love for music. The self-taught bassist eventually found his way to LA and in no time was touring with artists such as Miley Cyrus, Joe Jonas and The Weeknd. Along the path, he gained an interest in rapping and, with his impressive skill on the bass, he created a unique sound: bass hop. It has been difficult journey for him thus far, but with his backing band and his manager and brother Anthony by his side, he’s going give it his all to win a spot on the Warped Tour. According to Anthony, Jonny’s goal is to not just be successful but to “bring soulful music back to the forefront.”
Lipstick Killer, born Latasha Drummond, is a free spirited, wild hearted gypsy, bohemian rocker rapping chick. Yes. You read it. She is all those things. She is also one of Kansas City’s finest rap lyricists hailing all the way from Pittsburgh PA. People ask what is it about her? What separates her from the other rap chicks in the game?
Lipstick Killer explains her uniqueness, “My subject matter. People, women, moms, street cats… I have something everyone can relate to; nothing is far from their reach. I’m not knocking what others are doing, that’s them and they do that well… I’m just me. There are certain things I don’t care about… I talk about what is important to me. I’m rough around the edges, I’m cute but I don’t mind getting my hands dirty, I’m dark… I’m happy in a leather jacket and some scuffed up chucks. Simple. I care about my content; I love people and I want to help.”
