TY

As one of the most revolutionary rappers on the British hip-hop scene, Ty embodies the intellect, talent and ferocity of an MC always destined to become a legend. Over the last decade, the Mercury Prize nominee has achieved the rare feat of establishing a legacy through his three albums and wise persona, strengthened by his amazing worldwide shows and countless appearances alongside luminaries such as De La Soul, Tony Allen and Pee Wee Ellis.  Musically, he’s also worked with Estelle, Scratch Perverts, Talib Kweli, Black Twang, Arrested Development, Bahamadia and Zion I, both in front and behind the mixing desk, further proof of his relentless artistry and his evolution from roguish wordsmith from South London to an internationally-acclaimed hip-hop connoisseur.

Ezra Collective

Ezra Collective is the award-winning band born out of Tomorrows Warriors UK organisation for jazz music. First coming onto the scene in May 2012 when they were victorious in the Yamaha Jazz Experience Competition. They were blown away at the standard of Ezra Collective’s set and the advanced musicianship demonstrated by the band. This lead on to an award which saw Ezra support Terence Blanchard in London Jazz Festival 2012. Since then they have gone on to headline various festivals and play in different clubs around London and beyond. This includes Royal Albert Hall and Festivals up and down the UK. The strong influence of Afro Beat, Reggae and Hip Hop, tied together by tuition and understanding of jazz creates the unique Ezra Collective sound. Ezra Collective have also been used as rapper Pharoahe Monch’s live band further demonstrating their versatility in musicianship.
