Clear Soul Forces the group emerged from the aftermath of a 2009 all-nighter at a studio, where the four emcees scraped up some lose change to get in the studio and record some individual music. Detroit emcee Royce da 5'9", who was finishing recording his album Street Hop was coincidentally working in the studio room next door. The four soon-to-be group members jumped at the chance to be able to kick some rhymes for Royce as they engaged in a 9 hour rhyme fest where Royce just listened, made a few faces, and knotted his head while the four emcees traded bars with one another. Royce was impressed, then he kicked out a suggestion; considering each emcee’s different personality and style he posed that the four men become a group, and that was the day Clear Soul Forces (who didn’t have a name at the time) was born."
Bio written by Timothy Monger Flint Eastwood is an alt-pop project based around the work of Detroit-based singer/songwriter Jax Anderson. With wide-ranging influences from Spaghetti Westerns to Motown to mainstream dance pop, Anderson has built a reputation for her uncompromising style and high energy stage presence. Initially launched as more rock-oriented band project, the original quartet released their debut EP, Late Nights Bolo Ties, in 2012, melding bluesy guitar riffing and bright electronica behind Anderson's strong vocals. A few years later she reinvented Flint Eastwood as a solo venture with a lush sound geared more toward synth pop. This new incarnation reintroduced itself with the Small Victories EP in 2015. "Saviors," a collaborative single with Gosh Pith and Syblyng, arrived a year later, after which Anderson signed with New York label Neon Gold Records. "Queen," her debut single for the label, found Flint Eastwood's sound further evolving into sophisticated, bombastic pop. A collaboration with eclectic Flint-based singer/rapper Tunde Olaniran followed in early 2017.
