Professor Shyguy

Professor Shyguy

Professor Shyguy's music can be best described as high energy, chiptune-electro-rocking, 8-bit, epically vocalized, highly danceable, theatrical nerd-pop. Singing 50% about video games and the other 50% is anything from Space/Time to English Language gymnastics. He has just released his 3rd album of original music in the form of a Pop-Opera. His performance consists of singing, playing guitar, keyboards, and sometimes drums. Sometimes three of those things at the same time.

The Green Seed

Despite having shared the stage with Raekwon and members of Jurassic 5, The Green Seed are the greatest Southern Hip Hop act you’ve never heard of… Yet.

Though Alabama has carved out a niche in the current Hip Hop omniverse thanks to the likes of Yelawolf and, most notably, G-Side, The Green Seed (emcee’s R-Tist and C.O.M.P.L.E.T. and DJ’s FX and Jeff C.) have been working individually and as a collective for the better part of a decade. The Green Seed’s songs are as diverse and prolific as their output, taking a Native Tounges-ish approach to topics that include the personal, the political, and the nerdy. They like to skate. They like comics. They like to crush it.
