“Beautifully-produced agitprop reggae-flavoured rap, like the love-child of Steel Pulse, Kate Tempest and The Sleaford Mods” – Tom Robinson, BBC6Music
Yup, as usual Tom has it spot on for Billy Rowan (and band) aka THE UNDERCOVER HIPPY and a high energy, interactive show for which his loyal fanbase travels the length and breadth of the UK for shows.
“This is about as real as music gets!” – Andrew Marston – BBC Introducing
Skiiled drum ‘n’ bass MC turned singer-songwriter Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, ain’t your average singer songwriter! Mixing soul vocals, reggae rhythm and supersmart, provocative lyrics, think Natty meets Eminem… on a protest march… at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Tracks from 2017 album ‘Truth & Fiction’ were on heavy rotation with David Rodigan (BBC 1Xtra) and the aforementioned Tom Robinson (BBC Introducing Mixtape and Tom Robinson Show 6Music).
Social comment and politics – but still playful and uplifting – covering everything from fake news and internet privacy to nappy-wearing barristers and best friends trying to snog your mum.
Music for the thinking man to shake his arse to!
