Eprhyme

Eprhyme spits rhymes designed to refine the mind of the listener. Kabbalah, psychology, politics, andparty rocking are intertwined with elements of jazz, funk, klezmer, and Middle Eastern music to create a powerful and poetic plea forpeace, justice, joy, and unity.

Eprhyme spits rhymes designed to refine the mind of the listener. Kabbalah, psychology, politics, andparty rocking are intertwined with elements of jazz, funk, klezmer, and Middle Eastern music to create a powerful and poetic plea forpeace, justice, joy, and unity.

Before moving to Brooklyn, Eprhyme played a pivotal role in establishing a diverse and positive hip hop community in Olympia, Wa.- the dark and mythic homeland of D.I.Y. grunge, punk, Riot Grrrrl, and other underground art forms. Eprhyme has built a reputation both as a dynamic performer and an inspiring lyricist. He appears in a wide range of venues, from clubs to synagogues to youth detention centers.

Eprhyme’s debut solo album, WAYWORDWONDERWILL, is a kaleidoscopic counter-cultural exchange program formystics, punks and b-boys. The album features production by Smoke of Oldominion and guest vocal appearances by artist, activist and author Nomy Lamm. Lyrically, Eprhyme is a well versed tour guide who owes as much to Noam Chomsky and Robert Anton Wilson as he does to Nas and Aesop Rock.

WAYWORDWONDERWILLfeatures two 7in. singles released by indie-pop icon K Records as part of its International Pop Underground series. "Punklezmerap" is an up-tempo conscious club meets klezmer cannonball, and "Shomer Salaam"is a politically and spiritually charged Middle Eastern dancehall mash up. WAYWORDWONDERWILLis Hip Hop for healers and hitchhikers, boombap for beatniks and belly dancers, rap music for revolution and renaissance...and "it's a welcome breath of fresh air”.
