Drum & Bass MC turned singer-songwriter Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, is on a mission to make people think, laugh, and dance simultaneously.
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 masterful lyrical dexterity. Combining intelligent, provocative lyrics with dangerously catchy hooks and a feel good groove, this is music for the thinking person to shake their arse to. Think Natty meets Eminem…on a protest march…at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Renowned for the electric atmosphere of their live shows, The Undercover Hippy has become a staple of some of the UK’s best festivals, including Glastonbury, Boomtown Fair, Shambala, Green Man and The Secret Garden Party, as well as many European festivals. The Undercover Hippy have racked up 12 million streams on Spotify
“Beautifully produced agitprop reggae flavoured rap”
