Last Gasp Collective (LGC) is more than just a collection of talented artists. It’s a feeling. A movement. A way of life.
Originating from the “Small Town” of Kalamazoo, the diverse group has been brought together by a mutual love of art. Our live arrangements are reminiscent of The Internet, The Roots, and Hiatus Kaiyote where melodic cello or saxophone lines, fuzzed out guitar lead, and gospel piano set a beautiful soundscape underneath the soulful voices and poetic lyricism of Nezi, Jessica Ivey, and Jay Jackson. As Last Gasp Collective continues to debunk stereotypes one melody at a time, their music continues to touch the hearts of people from all walks of life.
