Today marks the four year anniversary of Noel Sayre’s passing. A luminary in the Ohio underground, Noel played violin for Columbus Ohio’s Pretty Mighty Mighty and Black Swans. He also performed with the West Virginia and Portsmouth Symphony orchestras and worked as a guitar and violin teacher.
Sayre was in a swimming accident on July 1, 2008. After going on life support, he passed away on July 3, 2008. He was a gentle, wildly talented soul and is sorely missed by many.
MP3:Path(featuring Jacob Wright)-the Waking Life
MP3:Path-Floating Away Freestyle
The lil homie Path celebrates his 21st Bday today by dropping a song off his album, the Next Big Thing. While that album title maybe showing a bit of rap modesty, I will say that Path has been really supportive of Columbus Hip Hop. Whether its opening up his studio to Fabrashay A for the Art Show or working with local legends like Met of Sa Smash, Meta4ce or Copywrite, in general Path is one of the few people in the current Campus music community that actually is an active student of his city.
These two songs will probably appeal more the Rhymesayer fans in our city than the cats that that grew up on Dipset but saul goode.
The Waking Life features his friend Jacob Wright from a band called I Am Mute.
