Bio

Born and raised in Perth, Western Australia, this west coast MC draws a heavy current for his lyrical charge from the anti-establishment film heroes of his childhood and comic legends Bill Hicks and George Carlin. He cites his musical influences from international rap artists such as Cypress Hill, KRS-One, Redman and spoken word poet/rapper Sage Francis and through Australian hip hop artists Drapht, Horrorshow, Seth Sentry, Bliss n Eso and Mantra. In 2012, while on tour in Australia, US rap artist Hopsin had the audience at his live event in Perth vote an impromptu freestyle showcase to which Bluntfield was declared the winner. This recognition led to the rapper joining the US rapper onstage twice more during tours over the following years.

Since 2014 Bluntfield has been gaining a loyal following both on the live circuit & online; with videos such as the award-nominated “The Dark Crystal” (which tackles the meth addiction epidemic) and analytical breakdown of cannabis prohibition 'Just Say Know'. A seasoned performer, Bluntfield has toured with Aussie Hip Hop giant Seth Sentry & shared the stage with the likes of Downsyde, Drapht, Merkules, Chris Webby, The Four Owls, Merkules, Ocean Wisdom & Swollen Members to name just a few. He has performed at Southbound Festival, Nimbin MardiGrass, RottoFest, Nannup Music Festival, Perth Fringe World & at more than 20 sold-out shows with Comedians vs Rappers, as well as taking out the 30 man elimination 'War of the Words' tournament in 2018.

A three-time West Australian Music Industry Song Of The Year finalist, Bluntfield is no stranger to crafting quality hip hop, with his latest release 'The Meat Clown' seeing further development of his unique sound, along with the incendiary social commentary & dynamic lyrical flow that he showcases with each release with a new album slated for Spring 2019
