Hailing from Howell, New Jersey Tony Newbury is a recording artist making a name for himself in Jersey’s hip hop scene. With a full discography and two of his own headlining shows in just 4 years he continues to show dedication to his craft. His flow and usage of samples has been able to differentiate him from the basic drill or hard style rapper we hear today. This is just part of who he is, he not only wants to entertain people, but also help them make sense of the crazy world we live in. By making music from his hardships, Tony hopes to help others through theirs.
Robin Hartzell started engineering in order to become self-sufficient as a vocalist and producer in small town Vermont, where the Hip Hop scene was once very small. He fell in love with the craft and over the years has sought to become a more well-rounded musician, branching out into a variety of genres. The move to New York has intensified that mission, and Rob is excited and honored to be part of the Indigo Soul team. Rob understands the value of creative control, and as an engineer he encourages the artist to lead the way, while offering feedback when there is room to experiment.
