Well, this is a good summer for Milwaukee's WebsterX. He released what could be one of the year's best music videos, put on an amazing show at Summerfest and now just signed with the national booking agency Surefire.
Surefire reprenents some amazing independent artists like Om Unit, Awesome Tapes of Africa, MNDSGN, Machinedrum and more. So I suspect the country will see more of this homegrown talent in the near future.
Check out the official bio:
