Hailing from Detroit's eastside, Srch Engn is the lovechild of eras both digital and analog. Through nostalgia and maximalism, Srch Engn gives melody to socio-cultural experiences proximal to black people. 

With 2020 album "Afterparty At Yo Momma's House", Engn cemented himself as both one of the most eclectic but also most earnest musicians coming out of Detroit. The project sparked retrofunkasonic discussions about desire, self-image, and sexy aliens that like funk music all to the tune of alternative hip-hop and R&B.  At the heart of the project, much like its creative ancestors, is the love for a daring story. 

This passion for storytelling branches into Engn's other exploits as both the editor of independent music blog Altnubian and his work as a community organizer, working to mobilize polito-cultural community spaces in Detroit.  After what has largely been a two-year rest to live a little bit of life, Srch is back and as vulnerable as ever with new album "BOY"

"BOY" or "Burden of Youth" is an 8-track LP & 'coming-of-age story', merging ideas from 1970s-1980s progressive rock with modern bedroom pop songwriting and aesthetics.  Undoubtedly,  Srch Engn's titular work.
