Much as Clark Kent donned a cape to save the world from the evil of Lex Luther, Sean Ray took up the moniker of Snob Scrilla to save the world from lyrical passivity and jam based muzak.Snob is preparing to go to war with the powers that be to decide who will control the soundscape of the universe.

Biography

Snob Scrilla was the moniker taken up by 25-year-old California-born genre blurring MC Sean Ray when he hit Australian shores back in 2002. Now based in Sydney, Snob Scrilla released his EP The Day Before¨ in 2008, with singles 'There You Go Again' and 'Chasing Ghosts' creating a stir at triple j, NOVA, Take 40, Channel V, MTV and Video Hits.

Not only did Snob blitz our airwaves and tv screens, but also our stages, sending crowds into a frenzy at Homebake, Parklife and Falls Festival as well as supporting the likes of Matisyahu, Public Enemy, Pnau & Faker.

Snob Scrilla writes lyrics that matter, cloaked in hip hop beats and electro wails with an indie rock sensibility, while always maintaining his sense of underlying nerdy fun. His mixed bag of genres is reflected in the eclectic crowds at his live shows. From the rock kids moshing down the front and often invading the stage, to the hip hoppers hanging at the back, and the indie crowd somewhere in the middle, Snob Scrilla live is a frenetic mix which is enhanced by his live band.

Snob's debut album Day One (released in Australia) has already spawned the unstoppable singles 'Heartbreak Scorsese' and '......... (The Song With No Title)'. The latter was featured on Channel Ten's promo for drama series Rush and debuted at #45 on the Aria Charts and #14 on the iTunes charts without an official release. It is now heating up radio stations across the country and featured as the Daily Telegraph¡¦s Single of the Week.
