Possessing a hyper-literate, intellectual style of rapping augmented with dizzying elocution that would tongue-tie even the fiercest auctioneer, Busdriver is eclectic and eccentric enough to cite vocalese jazz singer Jon Hendricks as a primary influence. Born Regan Farquhar, the Los Angeles MC was introduced to hip-hop culture early -- his father wrote the screenplay to one of the earliest films focusing on hip-hop, Krush Groove. He began rapping at age nine, releasing his first record at age 13 with his group, 4/29, named after the 1992 L.A. riots. By the mid-'90s, Busdriver was a regular at the Project Blowed open mike, where he would meet future collaborators and underground luminaries like Aceyalone, Abstract Rude, and Freestyle Fellowship. And shortly after, the vinyl did flow.

Sea Battle
Sea Battle is an experimental noise and hip hop act based in New Orleans. Underwater sounds and alien beats are utilized to seek out booty shakers from all regions of the galaxy. The dancefloor in our space ship is occupied by a krewe of mystical sirens called the Nocturnal Mermettes. If you are lucky the collusion of these entities may occur at an Earth stage near you. Sea Battle comin at ya!

Jonathan Brown
Jonathan is a rhinoceros, trouncing around; on the page, he’s an alchemist, transmuting vulnerability into a source of peace. He’s a prism splitting light in all directions. Jonathan was a high school English teacher for eight years. Now he tours the country and rocks shows.
