L-FRESH The LION performs Mother at TEDxSydney 2017
Prowling the Australian scene, Western Sydney artist L-FRESH The LION has quickly become renowned for his powerful presence, inspiring live shows and thought-provoking lyricism. His organic amalgam of world-class music and social activism has seen him seamlessly segue from underground events and ciphers to national tours and major festivals, the natural ascent of an MC with an abundance of purpose and self-belief.
Many musicians lay claim to being unique, but inspired by hip hop music from the mid-‘90s and early-2000s, and a deep love and respect for his own cultural and ancestral roots which trace back to the Sikhs from Punjab, India, L-FRESH is truly an artist like no other.
Introducing himself to music lovers in 2014 with a classy opening gambit, his debut album One announced L-FRESH The LION as an integral part of the new generation of hip hop artists still making waves in the Australian music industry to this day.
It paved the way for his signing to legendary Australian-based hip hop label Elefant Traks in 2015, who helped L-FRESH The LION release his acclaimed sophomore album BECOME in May of 2016. That record spawned powerhouse singles Get Mine (feat. Parvyn) and 1 In 100,000, both of which received regular rotational radio play across Australia and in the UK on BBC’s Asian Network.
He’s an artist of rare integrity and relevance, whose music strives to break down cultural barriers and make our society a better place as much as it does to illuminate and entertain. There’s only one L-FRESH The LION, and his appetite for effecting change via his moving words and music will never be extinguished.
