Getting his start by listening to American funk, jazz and blues, Gramatik dropped his first beats when he was only three years old. He has recently released a new EP entitled #digitalfreedom, which is a literal portrayal of his platform for free file sharing. He stands his mantra of “freeing music by making music free” and is fighting against internet censorship bills that would restrict the availability of free online music. His message is resonating in the industry with over 100,000 tracks sold and high-profile appearances at festivals including Electric Forest, Wakarusa and Wanderlust, as well as an epic sold out show at Red Rocks.
The 24 date “Age of Reason Tour” also features two up-and-coming artists, Cherub and heRobust. Cherub members include Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber who have a common goal of honest music and a vibrant live performance. Artist heRobust will contribute to the eclectic show with his hip-hop inspired bass beats.
