The album was produced and recorded in the dingy, dank, depths of our own home, which is now home to RezErected Records. in the struggling hip-hop scene of Western Montana the Codependents have emerged as one of the most profound groups to take the stage. With four different styles, the group chemistry comes together in the form of intense energy and thought provoking lyricism.
"Codependents have been a group on my radar for a while. I’ve caught two of their shows over the past year, and am addicted to their high energy performances. While on stage, these cats don’t quit! I love the diversity within the group, with each artist having not only a different style, but background as well. The group is composed of Shadow Devereaux, Justin Evans, Roman Firestone, and Keenan Nerby. While founded on the Salish Kootenai Pend o’ Rielle reservation, they are local to Missoula. Their sound makes me think of Eyedea & Abilities and Atmosphere, and with some pretty sick instrumentals thrown in.
I didn’t have a chance to speak with them after the show, but I know they’ve got love for their art. I had mad respect when they called out a member of the crowd for “being a dick” and allegedly heckling various musicians. Needless to say, he was ousted, and no longer welcome at the show. Sure, he may have just been excited for Knowmads to hurry up and start already, but we are all here to support each other in this game. I think Codependents support that in every way they can.
Be sure to check out their latest album, From Kittens To Wolves, which dropped in August of this year." - Chelcie Reneé Hopper of NightlifeNW.com
