Bio

Bio

MC Pony writes and performs hip hop in a distinctive and heartfelt style, both delighting and educating audiences with her trademark ‘mindful rhymes for kinder times’. Her Veganthused project is all about inspiring and encouraging people to explore and embrace veganism. Despite performing material that raises awareness about animal rights, environmental and social justice issues, an MC Pony show is fun, upbeat, and entertaining – it's activism with a smile!

Singles

MC Pony's seventh single "A Kinder Shade of Green" was inspired by the tagline of the Living Green Festival (ACT) Inc, and co-written with one of its founders, who also features on the track as TRAYLES. This is an overwhelmingly positive song, straying decidedly across into pop with a smooth and catchy chorus. Their next market is coming up on Sunday 6th October 2019 - check out https://www.lgf.org.au/ for all the details! (Yes, MC Pony will be making an appearance!!)

"Words Like Knives" is MC Pony's sixth single. It explores issues surrounding mental health, such as the associated stigma, effects of derogatory terms, the importance of early intervention contrasted with the chronic underfunding of treatment options, and the racial inequalities in access and outcomes. The track's co-writers include the incredibly talented featured artist, Seup. Words Like Knives stayed in the Triple J Unearthed charts for five weeks, reaching #7 in hip hop and #20 overall.

In June 2018 MC Pony released her fifth single, and first foray onto Unearthed, "Double Decade Vegan". It celebrated her 20th veganniversary with a throwback to the sounds of June 1998. The track debuted at #2 on the Triple J Unearthed Hip Hop charts, #11 in all genres, and spent a total of four weeks in the charts.
