"...“My name is Ivy Sole and tonight I’m reppin’ Philly.” So announced the rapper astride Dirty Sixth on Monday night. The self-identified “Charlotte-born and raised, Philly-made” MC then put on a lightning 20-minute set that would have made the City of Brotherly Love hoot with iron pride...."
"...Ivy Sole at Pour Choices..."
"...Ivy Sole (Charlotte, NC.)..."
"...Tons of ice chests full of every conceivable form of alcoholic beverage (and whole herds of beef and pork) need to be shuttled into place. One group pooled their money to buy an old beat-up van (appropriately painted orange, of course) with sole purpose of conveying the supplies of the group (and holding their spot)..."

Gray also keeps tap's legacy alive through Tapestry's ongoing education programs and the annual Soul to Sole Festival, a week of workshops with tap greats from all over the world..."
