2019 release. Hidden Beach Recordings has returned with the soundtrack to summer. Perfect for barbeques, summer parties, and family reunions. Early response to Unwrapped Vol. 8: The Chicago Sessions has been electric. For Chicago native and Hidden Beach Recordings founder Steve McKeever, it was paramount to create the newest iteration of Unwrapped in his hometown, a city that he loves and that has been in national headlines for all the wrong reasons. "Chicago has suffered through a sustained wave of unprecedented violence and the Jussie Smollett fiasco," McKeever says. "We want Unwrapped The Chicago Sessions to focus on the tremendous good of the city by highlighting the super talent that lives and creates there. Also, as a time when our country is horribly divided, Unwrapped Vol. 8 is a family-friendly way that diverse generations of all types of folk can listen to the music of today together - as Unwrapped has always done, turning the younger folk onto the magic of instrumental improvisational music and the older folk onto some of the best musical songwriting found in hip-hop."
