Onstage from 20:00
Drum and Bass MC turned singer-songwriter Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, is definitely not your average singer songwriter. Described by Tom Robinson (BBC6Music) as being “like the love-child of Steel Pulse, Kate Tempest and The Sleaford Mods”, his music brings together powerful messages, infectious reggae rhythms, and the lyrical delivery of a skilled mc. Combining intelligent, provocative lyrics with dangerously catchy hooks and a feel good groove, this is music for the thinking man to shake his arse to. Think Nattymeets Eminem…on a protest march…at the Edinburgh Fringe.
“Beautifully produced agitprop reggae flavoured rap” “Like the love-child of Steel Pulse, Kate Tempest, and The Sleaford Mods”
- Tom Robinson, BBC6Music
“Delivers big, weighty messages with an optimistic and entertaining light-heartedness”
- On The Beat (review of album launch)
“A solemn reminder that even the most powerful are fallible”
- Record of The Week – Camden New Journal
“A powerful masterpiece… weaves together humour and shrewd political commentary to create a catchy, fun and renegade modern protest album that could not be more relevant”
