Called the Kerouac of new Hip Hop, New York born producer and multi-instrumentalist Thunderbird Gerard has announced that he will be releasing his debut free "T.R.O.U.B.L.E EP" May 6th. A New Yorker by way of Berlin, Thunderbird Gerard has been cultivating his style for quite some time. His first single/video "Thunderbird" immediately lit fire last year and was named "Next Hype" from BBC's Radio 1 famed DJ Zane Lowe and has since garnered over 300,000 youtube views.
Now comes the T.R.O.U.B.L.E. EP which documents Gerard's time on the road after inking a publishing deal with BMG and is the first chapter of a two part conceptual journey about an emotional tale based on the coming ups in Smalltown USA, scraping by in slum town London to acclimating himself to finding love and redemption in his current location, Berlin.
Stay tuned for great things to come from Thunderbird Gerard.
