Stay Woke by Mark G. Meadows Featured on NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest 2017 Tumblr

c4yo_-hvcae8jlgA video of Stay Woke, a piece from To the People by Mark G. Meadows (KSAS BA ’11, Psychology; GPD ’13, Jazz Piano), was featured on NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest 2017’s Tumblr. Ben Naddaff-Hafrey of NPR Music comments on the piece, “The Washington, D.C., group matches the urgency of its message about political consciousness (most visible in Isaac “Deacon Izzy” Bell’s verse) with equally fiery improvisations from Meadows on piano and John Lee on guitar.”
