Beginning in 2010 as a solo artist under the name of "Quin," Blake Evans, recorded and released a seven song EP and played a few shows in the Cincinnati area as a side project to his band, I Am The Messenger. After Zack joined I Am The Messenger in June of 2011, Blake asked if he was interested in joining him in forming a hip-hop duo, which is present day Academic. The pair joined with friend and guitarist Jason and began writing and recording. The sole purpose of Academic is to make music we love and want to listen to. No hype. No gimmick. Academic is the new face of hip hop in Cincinnati. Get ready.
