Drum and Bass MC turned singer-songwriter Billy Rowan aka The Undercover Hippy is definitely not your average singer songwriter. Described by Tom Robinson (BBC6Music) as being “like the love-child of Steel Pulse, Kate Tempest and The Sleaford Mods” his music brings together powerful messages infectious reggae rhythms and the lyrical delivery of a skilled mc. 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.
Travelling to Boomtown with his full band in tow expect high energy bass soaked songs covering topics from fake news internet privacy and the U.S. election to nappy wearing barristers and best friends trying to snog your mum. You will laugh, you will cry, you will leave lighter than you arrived.
