BUSHWALLA

Singer, song-juggler, and self-proclaimed "Original Gangster of Cleveland," Bushwalla represents the assorted talents of Billy Galewood. Bushwalla began performing in musical theater at the early age of nine.

At 18 he was studying theater at the American Musical & Dramatic Academy in New York City, supporting himself as a street performer by incorporating such feats as juggling, magic, face-balancing, and fire-breathing.

Today, Bushwalla's sound has evolved into a unique blend of acoustic hip-hop, folk, and funk with a soul deeply rooted in authenticity and optimism.
