The Undercover Hippy - 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.

Press/Reviews “Beautifully produced agitprop reggae flavoured rap” “Like the love-child of Steel Pulse, Kate Tempest, and The Sleaford Mods” Tom Robinson, BBC6Music

Support from Smiley & The Underclass... a punky reggae noise from London via. Japan, the UK and the Caribbean. Formed in a caravan below a motorway in 2014, they quickly captured the hearts of the underground scene with their chaotic and incendiary live shows put together in squats and disused venues across the capital.

Releasing their debut album in 2017, they spent last year smashing up venues from Japan to Europe to the UK, including sold out shows from Tokyo to London and packed out tents at Boomtown and Shambala Festival. Mind-melting guitars collide with razor-sharp lyrics and crushing basslines to move your mind, body and soul till they're lying knackered on the roadside. The unique Underclass energy carries a new sound to unite all punk rockers and roots rebels of the modern era. Their urgency is real. With planetary chaos on the cards and social unrest all-over, Smiley & The Underclass are the perfect soundtrack for these times. The revolution is here, all you have to do is tune in...
