Swollen Members catch a ride February 7-9 and Moka Only are on the bill from the 5th through the 9th.

This tour unites artists from several musical genres, giving audiences a taste of acoustic rock, hip-hop, rap, rap-core, and DJ spins.

Heading up the motley crew is Ms. Naked. Encompassing a unique combination of punk rock and singer/songwriter leanings, Naked cut her touring teeth with Gorilla Gorilla as their frontwoman before signing on with Chrome Dog. In 1994, she lashed out with a solo EP, which was quickly followed by a self-titled album.

Naked formed her own label, Her Royal Majesty’s Records, and has released several albums, all while continuing to gig around North America and Europe.

Rappers Swollen Members were honored to receive the 2001 Juno Award (Canada’s answer to the Grammys) for best rap recording from their debut album, Balance. Formed in the mid-‘90s by Moka Only, Mad Child and Prevail, Swollen Members have just released their second album, Bad Dreams.

Moka Only left Swollen Members shortly after founding the group and has since made a name for himself in the Canadian rap scene. While he has released several EPs and independent tapes since the early ‘90s, Moka’s first full-length effort, Lime Green, was just released this year.

Like Moka, Project Wyze have several indie releases to boast about. They’ve been on the Canadian rap/rock scene since their founding in 1995 and have opened for acts like Public Enemy and Dream Warriors, and have toured with Papa Roach and Step Kings.

Misfits.strangers.liars.friends, Project Wyze’s major label debut, was released in 2001 by Sony Music Canada.

Jelleestone rounds out the set, bringing his street style rhymes and a plan to “do for Canadian hip-hop what Russell Simmons did for hip-hop culture in America.”
