(Nashville, Tenn.) July 23rd, 2007 – Verbs, the artist formerly known as Knowdaverbs, is bringing his own global village Hip-Hop style to the music scene with the September 18th release of The Groundwork Theory, a first new album since 2003’s highly-acclaimed Unlocked. The album will release on 1280 Music Inc. with distribution via Infinity Distribution.
Being described as an album with pounding beats, raw lyricism and vision, The Groundwork Theory will feature 12 songs from Verbs, the solo powerhouse Michael Boyer. Producer credits go to Ric Robbins (GRITS, Out of Eden), Crisis (GRITS), and Tony Stone (LaCrae) .
“Verbs is authentic. From his flow to his heart, it’s undeniable,” says TobyMac. “He understands his gift and knows just why he has it.”
Signed to Gotee Records in 1998, Verbs released three albums with the label including 1998’s The Syllabus, 2000’s Action Figure, and 2003’s Unlocked. Verbs received two Dove Award nods in 2000 for both “Hip-Hop/Rap/Dance Song Of The Year” and “Hip-Hop/Rap/Dance Album Of The Year.” In 2003, the demand for Verbs music was so high that two of his songs from Unlocked hit #1 on the rhythmic charts before the album was released.
