“Myth-making is a common theme in all of Rory Ferreira’s work. Throughout his dense, lyrical albums, he ruminates on the role of the storytellers in understanding the past, interpreting the present and making the future. At the same time, he takes on the aura of a myth, rapping verses that mix metaphor and concreteness over languid, jazz beats. A word-loving, chess-playing, spiritual poet on a journey, dropping verses on his way.” Ned Summers introduces artist R.A.P. Ferreira.
