Biography

"Ferociously intelligent...Rival MC quips with the informed subtlety of Kev Carmody and spits with a visceral slag like Henry Rollins's. 'Cept hip-hoppier with specifically Aussie concerns." - Triple J

With their unique story telling ability, Rival MC (Fred Leone), DJ Return again (James Vincent), Kaylah 'KayEmTee' Tyson and Soul singer Georgia Corowa will collectively take you on a journey through the mind of contemporary Aboriginal Australia addressing not only issues facing their people, but also Australian society and the global community in general.

On record, is the delivery of a solid Australian Hip Hop sound fusing cultural tradition, rhythm and dance into their live shows.
Impossible Odds is known around the Nation for breaking out of the stereotypical mold of ‘Aussie Hip Hop’ with influences from Gospel, to the smooth laid back Pacific Island style harmonies inherited from Rivals’ Tongan and Georgia's South Sea Islander Heritage.
The full 6-piece live lineup incorporates 18 yr old drumming hotshot Marley J and bass player Big Daddy T...the formidable rhythm section of Classik Nawu.
