BIO

“Never stop rhyming.” Common
© Guillaume Megevand

Freshly nominated for the 2018 Swiss Music Awards and described as “Hip Hop Elegante” by the program director of Peru’s largest music festival, the artist ROOTWORDS has earned a reputation for performing a repertoire of high stature, with an absolute commitment to communicating the essence of music at it’s most organic level.

The epitome of a “world citizen” (born in the USA of Zambian heritage and raised in Switzerland), ROOTWORDS began rhyming at the age of 16. He studied international relations and law, only to drop out in a radical rebellion against the system, with the intent of focusing on music.

Since winning the renowned M4 Music “Urban Award”, as well as multiple other accolades, the lyricist has graced the stages of many international festivals with his live band The Block Notes, including Montreux Jazz and Paleo Festival (Switzerland), Reggae Sun Ska (France), Selvamonos (Peru), Bushfire (Swaziland) and CMJ (New York). A total of 150 shows in 11 countries.

ROOTWORDS is on the verge of releasing his new album Warning Signs (March 23, 2018).
