Brite Winter Fest was wild fun this year! Thanks to Brite for having us, thanks to Chris Walker for killing it on drums for us, and thanks to everyone that came out to catch our set! Video by James Dalton Song: ‘Less Is More’ off of “Return To The Sun”
Here’s the video of the set + interview we did on WRUW Live From Cleveland last week! Much love to them for having us on the show!
“2017 was the come up year for Smoke Screen, a hip-hop duo based out of Cleveland. Tommy Sheridan (a.k.a. Chemist or Broken Keys) and Rodney Mynatt (Mooke) have packed more into twelve months than most groups are able to fit into their lifespans. A brand new album, two music videos and several shows later, 2018 is poised to be another year of success for the pair who are on the brink of national notoriety.
While so many acts use the selling power of nostalgia, the momentum of anniversary tours and benchmark album re-releases to keep fans hooked, Smoke Screen is relying on what they’ve learned since their initial release to earn themselves new listeners. They could throw a party to commemorate Self Educated Learning Process, released December 12, 2007, but Sheridan and Mynatt would rather move towards the future instead of dwell in the past.” -Rachel Hunt

“CLEVELAND, Ohio – Broken Keys might be a side gig for Cleveland musician Tommy Sheridan, but his deep house music project has made moves forward with a new remix EP.
Sheridan’s skills in creating house music have translated into Cleveland’s hip-hop scene for years; he’s known as The Chemist, one half of the duo that composes hip-hop band Smoke Screen. And although the two groups (Broken Keys and Smoke Screen) create distinctly different songs, they often go hand-in-hand for Sheridan.” -Anne Nickoloff (cleveland.com)
