There are two groups named Late Bloomers.
1.) Late Bloomers formed in 2009 while Ahh:Zel was sitting in law class distracted by the filipina girl who sat next to him and a rhyme he was working on instead of taking notes. Fed up with the lack of halfway decent emcees and open minded collaborators, he sent a text to Nonstop saying nothing but "Ahh:Zel & Nonstop are Late Bloomers". Nonstop (confused) was down, and now all they needed was a DJ . Enter ReallyNathan, who was added once Lord Quas told him to quit rapping, and partnered with Ahh:Zel to craft the soundbed of the burgeoning bloomers. With a new found direction and reinvigorated spirit, the three would go from disgruntled amateurs to a self described polished supergroup.
With a playful sense of humor and "doitourway" attitude, Late Bloomers crafted three EPs worth of chill, feel good, future thinking cali-soul raps and dropped them on an unsuspecting public. Fast forward a year and Late Bloomers have earned themselves a healthy dose of blog love, worldwide fanbase, and the occasional opening slot for the likes of Exile, Chino XL, One Be Lo, 2mex, Strong Arm Steady, and even Tone Loc. Armed with a new even more "future-blapped.feelgood.neosoulrappish,sunshine.california.sarcastic.strange" sound the crew has teamed up with Tres records to release their newest EP "Three Shades Brown."
2.) Late Bloomers are an acoustic duo that consists of Brett Kinney & Randy Browning. Together they play a fun, original mix of new and traditional folk, blues, jazz, and ragtime.
Brett’s originally from New Jersey, and Randy’s from New Hampshire.
After years as self-taught musicians, they met at Berklee College of Music, in line for a mandatory film about the terrible things that happen to people who default on their student loans. Brett was working at a record store when he first heard Doc Watson and Tony Rice, and Randy was supposed to be in class when he found the collections of Alan Lomax and Harry Smith in the library. After college, they continued exploring traditional folk and modern acoustic music together, performing regularly in Boston area coffeehouses.
In recent years their music was honored with the Kerrville ‘New Folk’ award, and they were voted among the top 5 audience favorites as emerging artists at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival.
They play a variety of music: modern instrumentals and story songs, with a lively approach to traditional folk. As musicians, they have a simple goal: to continue to grow in new and interesting ways.
