Click to enlarge

Most likely you have never heard of the Chicago duo He Say She Say, who were signed to Lupe Fiasco's imprint 1st and 15th Entertainment.  You probably didn't know that one half of the duo and the singer Drea Smith is a native of Milwaukee. The other half is well known DJ/producer that goes by the name of Million $ Mano, who has on several occasions performed here in Milwaukee. Their sound is a unique hybrid of soul and electro with hint of rock.  Actually He Say She Say performed a show at Moct about 2 years ago.  I have been following the group and their music for some time via Rhythm Lab.  

Unfortunately, you will never see this group again and probably will never see an album either because the duo have disbanded. However, Million & Mano will be releasing tracks from their now shelved album.  You can listen and download the first of these releases below. The track is called "With Out Me." In the meantime, check out a great article on  Milwaukee native Drea Smith via OnMilwaukee.com.
