Amsterdam, an emcee from Oregon and Goodwill, a producer from Washington, have collaborated on a 16-song record called Earth & Sky that is now available for free online. Earth & Sky certainly represents a sharp change in creative direction for the two artists. At the heart of the collaboration was a steadfast determination to bring a “feel-good” vibe to a region mostly known for overcast weather & a relatively dreary musical landscape. “We both just wanted to bring something new and different to our music scene,” Amsterdam said. “It all starts with Will, his beats are the foundation. He’s the Earth part of the equation. The tangible. The lyrics are just a part of my imagination I’m unable to otherwise control. The sky stretches for as far as the eye can see and may even be moodier than I am, so in a way I guess my delivery represents that mercurial nature, that unpredictability.” Earth & Sky features artwork from Davey Cadaver and appearances from Luck One and Mila Gordana.
