    The Undercover Hippy

    Political Rap

    Drum and Bass MC turned singer songwriter Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, is definitely not your average singer songwriter. His music brings together soulful vocals, infectious reggae rhythms, and the lyrical delivery of a skilled mc. Starting out as a solo act in 2007, he has since teamed up with some fantastic musicians and performs as a four piece, mixing guitars, keys, drums, bass, and backing vocals to create a high energy, interactive and highly entertaining live show. 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 Natty meets Eminem…on a protest march…at the Edinburgh Fringe.

    "Beautifully produced agitprop reggae flavoured rap" - Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music

    "About as real as music gets" - Andrew Marston, BBC Introducing

    “Truly electrifying... delivers big, weighty messages with an optimistic and entertaining light-heartedness” - On The Beat

    “The band lit up the venue with their tongue-in-cheek yet poignant music” - ClunkMag

    “Like the love-child of Steel Pulse, Kate Tempest, and The Sleaford Mods” - Tom Robinson, BBC6Music

    “Insanely infectious” **** - Liverpool Sound & Vision

    “Politically charged reggae that sticks two fingers up to the powers that be” - Fresh On The Net, Christopher McBride

    "Combining intelligent, amusing, and often politically charged lyrics with dangerously catchy hooks and a feel good groove, this is music for the thinking man to shake his arse to. Think Jason Mraz meets The Cat Empire...on a protest march...at the Edinburgh Fringe" - Music Mafia
