It was only after having chosen the name Astronautalis for himself while in high school in Jacksonville, Florida, that the rapper (born AndyBothwell) began to make himself heard in the local circuit, winning battles and competing at the Scribble Jam. Though he was known for his wittyfreestyling, Astronautalis’ musical influences and interests fell outside the hip-hop realm, as well, and he performed on the Warped Tour forthree years. It was his rhyming, however, that he pursued while studying theater at college in Dallas, and in 2003 he self-released his debut,You and Yer Good Ideas (which was sold only at his live shows), with production help from friend and fellow musician Ben Cooper (from RadicalFace). It wasn’t until two years later that the album was picked up by Orlando-based Fighting Records (who signed him after seeing himperform), which reissued it and then in 2006 released his follow-up, Mighty Ocean and Nine Dark Theaters, a record that found Astronautalismoving away from rapping and more toward shoegazer-inspired indie rock. « hide
