The two spent the next several years touring and making albums, but it was always Odum playing drums for Bohlke’s solo project, until they decided to try another experiment - to write together. Fueled by their love for basketball, design, and of course, R&B, the two set out on a creative venture. The goal: to make the type of music they listened to, and the type of art they admired, and the types of clothes they wore. Over the next several months, this collaboration grew into what would become Rookie Season. All of this was the culmination of their ten-year friendship, but it all started with the music.
In 2016, Rookie Season headed into the studio and recorded two singles, Call You and Backtalker. Those singles were released on September 22 and both were immediately featured on Spotify playlists. On May 25, The Collide, their first album of nine original R&B songs was released.
Many more things to follow.
