The Residency sets the stage for Seattle musical artists like MC Talk

MC Talk performs the song, "Shinin" and discuss the program’s impact on Seattle’s youth. Sponsored by The Residency.

SEATTLE — The Residency offers a space for young Seattle artists from low-income areas to learn the artistic and professional skills necessary for a career in the music industry. While they’re developing their sound in the studio, they also learn about teamwork, self-confidence, and their potential to make a positive change in the world. 

MC Talk is one of the musical groups developed out of the program. Members Ali Soliman, Tah-Jae Shante, Lexi Lalauni, and Brandon Michael Christie join us today to perform their song, "Shinin" (produced by Chase Evan). 

Amir Islam, from The Residency team, and Tah-Jae Shante from MC Talk, sit down with Margaret to discuss the importance of the program for young artists.

EVENT INFO: Sat, Sept. 28th, alumni from the program will join Macklemore on stage at the Paramount Theater for An Evening With The Residency
