We have unearthed what are the very last "Maybe She'll Dream Of Me"/"Something In The Way She Moves" limited edition 7" singles. This 7" was originally given away with the Authenticity pre-order and has never before been available for sale separately. We have a few of the numbered 7" singles as well as a few black sleeve 7" singles that Phonte and Nicolay have both signed. Also available are Nicolay/The Hot At Nights tour posters signed by Nicolay and a few of the very last white Authenticity T-Shirts.

I stood backstage with my arms crossed over my chest and hands connected to band members on either side of me. As I stared down at my Authenticity T-shirt, Phonte delivered a spirit-stirring prayer thanking God for a receptive crowd, tight musicianship and flawless voices. I glanced over at Sy Smith and Jeanne Jolly -- two incredible songstresses who softened the blows of Phonte's bragaddocio hip hop delivery. My eyes travelled towards Nicolay, one of the most humble and talented producers I've ever known, as he bowed in concentration.
The remaining contributors to the collective, Zo! (keys), Chris Boerner (lead guitar), Tim Scott Jr. (drums) and Darion Alexander (bass) put down their jokes and smartphones to enter this zone of creative synergy that surged from one hand to the other. It was showtime at the Key Club in Hollywood, CA - and The Foreign Exchange approached the stage to deliver one of the last performances of their Authenticity tour. It was poised to be one of their best.
