?This is about as real as music gets!? Andrew Marston ? BBC Introducing
?His combination of catchy tunes, rhythmical vocal style, and socially aware (but often amusing) lyrics, is a recipe that is difficult to nail without seeming preachy or dull, but Rowan succeeds where many fail.? eGigs.co.uk
Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, is definitely not your average singer songwriter. His music brings together acoustic guitar, soulful vocals, infectious reggae rhythms, and the lyrical delivery of a skilled mc. After 7 years spent DJ?ing and MC?ing on the Drum & Bass circuit, Billy swapped the decks for a guitar and now with a full band, mixing guitars, keys, drums, bass, percussion and backing vocals creates a high energy, interactive and highly entertaining live show. 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 Jason Mraz meets The Cat Empire on a protest march at the Edinburgh Fringe.
