MAKE ME DOWN: SONGS FOR MAKING IT THROUGH ALIVE BY THE HAWTPLATES
The HawtPlates: Jade Hicks, Kenita Miller-Hicks, and Justin Hicks
World premiere visual EP now available on The Public’s YouTube
Last seen in 2020’s Under the Radar Festival, The HawtPlates presented Waterboy and the Mighty World, remixing songs made famous by Odetta Holmes to explore heroism through the life of Bass Reeves. Commissioned by The Public Theater, The HawtPlates with visual collaborator Breck Omar Brunson present MAKE ME DOWN, a new 17-minute visual EP with music that again engages the spirit of Odetta's work and proffers the notion that sometimes, songs are meant to keep us going.
