Stephen Kearse

Stephen Kearse is a D.C.-based writer who listens to the hearsay, but never says "Hear, hear!" When he's not writing about rap or race, he's nose-deep in a history book or a Harper's magazine, wondering why he's too lazy to turn on the damn light. He irregularly writes at and he irregularly tweets @black__steve. That's two underscores, bub. 

Erin Duncan

Bay area dweller born and raised. Hypnotized by soulful rythyms and big words. Currently figuring out ways to write all wrongs. Handling the Public Relations side of Léte, while trying to restore the joy in our music culture.
