FootsXColes (pronounced "Foots and Coles") is a DMV-based production duo whose goal is to push the envelope in all things music. Praised for their refreshing take on alternative R&B, Foots (drummer, songwriter, singer) and Coles (producer, singer, pianist) collaborate to create spacey soul music with futuristic sounds and vivid lyrics.
