WQUB HIP HOP HOSTS HEAD TO L.A. TO PURSUE MUSICAL CAREER
Johnathan and Jared Lindsay, known as Double Vision to their listening audience, gained a strong following when they took over the The Hip-Hop R&B Block in May of 2009 on WQUB. The Double Vision Hit List, airing at on WQUB on Fridays at 10 p.m., will come to an end after 2009.
The Lindsay’s departure is a loss for WQUB, but a huge gain for their career.
“Our record is being produced by No Sleep Records (nosleeprecs.com). We'll be releasing a digital EP in early winter of 2010 (title will be announced soon) and a full-length album later in 2010, which will be available in all major and independent retail stores worldwide,” says Johnathan Lindsay.
Double Vision is still in the process of booking a tour, but plan on doing the tour immediately after the release of the EP. There are not any official dates yet, but plans include touring colleges and other venues on the West Coast, East Coast, and Midwest.
“Of course we will be touring the Midwest since that's where we started! We have to come back and show love to the Midwest as they were the first to show the most love and support for DV! That's still where a lot of our fans are based,” adds Jared Lindsay.
Jared Lindsay continues, “Our goal is to educate, inspire, and entertain as far as fans and listeners go. We definitely have a goal to bring what is considered underground music, to the surface and to put quality, and creative music in a mainstream position. We also plan on bringing the originality and artistry back to the music industry, especially with Hip Hop.”
Double Vision attributes their success primarily to timing and perseverance. “We simply made a set plan and goal and pursued it! We met the right people, made the right kind of music, and the right moves at exactly the right time. I think standing firm on how we see ourselves as people as well as artists, had a lot to do with our success. Not conforming to the norm, and being brave enough to take risks and carve our own path to success, instead of following the next person’s path. We basically figured out what our "thing" was and ran with it at full speed! And we still are as we speak,” concludes Johnathan Lindsay.
