Legend Haz It

Music – Chicago

“We started out with a common goal,” says emcee, Keith “Legend Mane” Winford. “I met this drummer named Dan Pratt in the dorms at Northern Illinois University the first day of our freshman year. Even though we were raised in different places and had different backgrounds, we discovered a common bond in the music that we had listened to growing up, and we both had a desire to fill a musical void in our lives.“ Legend Haz It was born out of an attempt to fill this musical void. While living in the dorms, Pratt and Winford spoke occasionally about forming a band, but it was not until two years later that Legend Haz It came to be. “We found a group of guys who believed that something was missing in current music and wanted to create that missing link,” says Winford. “The first song that we ever wrote pretty much sums up what we are trying to accomplish.” This song, “Catch My Dreams,” the single off of their self-titled debut EP, speaks of the band’s desire to find success—both musically and spiritually, amidst a financially daunting reality. “To us, success is creating music that is relevant to us—relevant to now. Music with a message,” Winford says. For those who have been following Legend Haz It, their success has become increasingly apparent with the release of their debut EP, their opening performance for Lyfe Jennings, Yung Joc, and T-Pain, and their ever-growing fanbase throughout the Midwest and beyond. With Keith Winford’s lyricism and the blazing horn riffs and solos of trumpeter Ryan Nyther and trombonist Ron Jacoby, in conjunction with the Soul, Jazz, and R&B influenced grooves of guitarist Joel Ream, keyboardist Collin Clauson, bassist Tim Ipsen, and drummer Dan Pratt, the band is well on its way to creating a sound and message that will maintain the longevity and legacy of a Legend.
