◊ EMERALD-LANE is not just some jam session made into an album amongst industry friends. To founder and leader Sonny Coates, ◊ EMERALD-LANE goes beyond the music itself and touches on how we take in and understand music. Through his podcast, he explores the artistry of music beyond what we see and hear. Inspired by his philosophy, he gathered a talented group of musicians to create C M C S, a double EP that features seven tracks each in two varying formats. Today, URB Magazine shares an intimate conversation with Sonny as he explains how this project came to be and the influences that led up to it.
