At the age of 12, two lost bois met and, in friendship found musical solidarity. In their teens, A.O. and B.Steady shared the stage as vocalists in their high school jazz band, falling in love with the nuances of the jazz standard. Through college, the bois independently fostered their passions for music and founded The Q Crew, an all-female queer rap trio. Upon their return to DC in the summer of 2009, A.O. and B.Steady reunited with a fierce determination to challenge the sexist, racist and homophobic hot mess that is mainstream music, forming the lost bois.
