    Season Six kicks off with New Jersey-born, LA-based singer/songwriter Love Mansuy. It's been a long time coming with Love—ever since his single "Mine" was featured in Not 97 3.11. Love was also interviewed in the debut edition of Not A Zine, discussing his experiences as an artist and young father—a common theme in his music.
    Love introduces the powerful and soulful sounds of Umi Copper as well has his friend and collaborator Sean Matsukawa.
