BandHip HopEDM

"Figureheads clearly carry a weight not readily available in much of music today...Tracksmith's beats create a hypnotic layer - a groove that sucks you in to engage with the double headed dragon of the two MCs: Jer1 and Peg-Leg Greg." Nathan Johnson (composer for films Brick, and the Brothers Bloom)


Figureheads is composed of 3 artists from the Midwest: MC Jer1 (Milwaukee), Peg-Leg Greg (Madison) and The Tracksmith (Minneapolis). Fusing a passion for hip hop music and electronica, they created a unique sound that has bridged the gap between genres and generations. After their experimental debut 'Configurations' dropped in 2003, they began creating music for a broader audience, kids included. They now have albums crafted for many audiences in both the education and entertainment scenes and have performed for over 300,000 people in the last 3 years as well as moving 25,000 units independently. With music for pre-K through high-school, they run a nonprofit that creates and performs award-winning (Parent's Choice Gold Award 2007 for best album) original hip hop music for youth as well as teaching music production and songwriting in schools ( All the while they have continued creating for the college and club scenes, winning the Wisconsin Area Music Industry Award (WAMI) two years in a row for best hip hop act in the state and receiving consistent local radio play for their single "Specks of Light" on 88nine Radio Milwaukee ( After a total of 8 releases (the latest being "Fire in the Soul," a CD for teens and beyond) they are set to debut what is shaping up to be their magnum opus: "Freedom Music." Stay tuned.
