Having well-and-truly cut his teeth playing, recording, and touring with bombastic Australian hiphop powerhouse The Brow/Brow Horn Orchestra for seven years, multi-WAMi Award-winning emcee, producer, and instrumentalist Ben Fear now has much shorter teeth. His trophy cabinet includes previous support slots for Arrested Development, Public Enemy, and De La Soul.
This new, solo project sees the rapper take a more definitively-hip hop approach, while incorporating elements of trip hop, jazz, classic rock, and world music, and bringing to these his trademark poetic style. The soon-to-be-released debut record features Lyndon Blue (Methyl Ethel) and Sam Perry (winner of The Voice Australia). Studio recording and production comes courtesy of award-winning producer Matt Gio (Rudimental, Abbe May, San Cisco).
