Found through the Best of NYC Year End poll: the lo-fi soul of I/O - live at SOB's tonight

The most talented artists know how to make a lot from very little. R'n'B Songwriter I/O - a project we discovered through our Best of NYC Poll for Emerging Artists - seems to enjoy these limitations. Whether wondering where things went wrong in the reflective 'Wasted My TIme,' or caught in the throes of passion for popular track 'You Slay Me,' I/O is a constant tinkerer with his arsenal of audio toys, using his talents to extract the hidden humanity found just beneath the surface of a robotic playground of beatbox grooves. I/O will be supporting his latest full-length 'Isolation' when he plays S.O.B's tonight (8pm). Join him then to show him he's not as isolated as he might think. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
