Salim and Caleb Stine live

caleb stine and salimIt couldn't have been better.

We took Americana singer/songwriter Caleb Stine and hip-hop MC Salim -- two musicians who'd never even heard of each other -- and forced them to write four original songs in six weeks.

Last Saturday, when they debuted the songs at a live taping of Baltimore Unsigned at The 8x10, the crowd was stunned.

It was amazing. Several audience members were in tears during the mini-set.

Caleb and Salim went from total strangers to close friends. Now, they're going to write an album together. 

I'll keep you posted on their progress. Thanks again to the 100-ish people that came out.
