I thought that he was a very articulate young man and he seems to be well educated on the arts of music, and so many artists of today don't necessarily take the time to do the research and put the work into it, but this young man seems as if he gets it, he understands it, and its showing through his music, and even the fact that he mentioned the 3 albums that he had, and the stages that they go through in life, means that he understands the process. I am thrilled that he understands to the point where its showing through his craft, and it is showing through his art, and I enjoyed the music a lot... The level of intensity, the cleverness of how he uses the words. Too many times, simple words can be rhymed and put into a sentence to make it sound like it makes sense, but this young man is taking the thought, and taking the thought into the artistic measures that he has shown. I think that he is a great talent. I am looking to see some great things from (G)nosis, and I am definitely going to be following his career. - Quoted From- Mr. D


Rapper (G)nosis' new album, The Midnight Drifter LP, is conscious but not preachy, deep but not overwrought, forward-thinking but not inaccessible. More impressive, there aren't any bad songs to be found here, and that's most certainly a feat for such a lyrically ambitious project. On Midnight Drifter, (G)nosis challenges you to think at his level — a risky move, because if he'd failed, then the record would have been boring. Fortunately, the gamble paid off, and that's precisely what makes this a better-than-average listen. Tonally, the record ranges from conversational to prophetic, and thematically, the rapper is nearly as diverse. The release is on the short side, but that's not necessarily a bad thing in these ADD-riddled times. - The Westword, By Noah Hubbell


His live performances in Denmark have helped define the 21st Century cultural landscape. He uses his voice as a finely tuned instrument, which is spectacular to experience. - Jylands-Posten, By Adela Poulsen


A riveting and soulful examination so rarely found in modern popular music. - Berliner Morgenpost, By Anna Blau


(G)nosis developed The Midnight Drifter which possesses keys to our soul that are not often found in todays music culture. It paints a silhouette of the mysteries that are so sought after, and gives the affirmation that they are closer to our understanding than they appear. - Press Play Pro, By Starlet Cloud


“Where You Are” is from (G)nosis’ most recent project the “Midnight Drifter LP.” The entire series is dedicated to the dream state or, as (G)nosis puts it, “traveling from darkness to light.” This track, “Where You Are,” is a bit alarm-clock jarring as the beat opens up with funky horns and a big-beat feel. (G)nosis, rhyming with a fast flow, chastises the listeners a bit, encouraging the masses to “rise up and make a statement.” - The Denver Post, By Ru Johnson


In a time where it becomes easy to lose sight of what is important, (G)nosis presents an elegant depiction of why we must journey deeper within ourselves. His music; words to live by. - Sound Advice, By Dapper McClaine


YES! This is exactly what has been missing. The most up to date analysis of who we are through music. As transformative, if studied, as Bach or Beethoven. Simply brilliant. - The Daily Circle, By Peter Tisnep

Bio

(G)nosis was birthed on January 15, 1987, in Denver, Colorado. He was introduced to music almost immediately through the likes of his father, who at the time had a rock group that were touring nationally. (G)nosis recorded his first song at the age of 5, which went on to win high praise and various awards in local talent shows. At the tender age of 7, he danced alongside MC Hammer at Fiddlers Green. By the age of 13, (G)nosis had participated in talent shows nationwide, and won national recognition by industry talent scouts for his musical savvy.

In recent times, 2014 was a promising breakout year for (G)nosis. He toured extensively in the United States, gaining national and international recognition for his work in both the music industry, and non-profit work with various organizations to aid and assist in transforming the current realm of the entertainment industry for both children and adults alike. During his efforts, he was placed on the CMJ Hip-Hop Top 40 music charts, ranking humbly above such legendary acts as Talib Kweli, Lauryn Hill, De La Soul and more. This garnered the interest of many television networks who are now currently licensing (G)nosis’ The Sleepwalker EP on MTV, VH1, Oxygen, E! and The Discovery Network. 2017 is set to usher in (G)nosis first official full-length album entitled The DayDreamer, which will complete his long awaited, and highly anticipated series of concept albums. His goal is to then tour around the world, touching his strong fan base in the United States along the way, while reaching the masses with his message of unity. Working with world leaders as an ambassador of peace, his vision is to bring the world to harmony with the universal language of music, and truth through self-reflection.

(G)nosis strength lies in his extraordinary ability to convey the experience of spiritual quest coupled with worldly wisdom. It is the experience of that spiritual odyssey – the magic of hope and deliverance. Through Hip-Hop inspired, coupled with Jazz and conjoined with Pop, he has found the perfect Trinity in embodying the past, present and the future of music. (G)nosis is Timeless...(G)nosis is Knowledge...(G)nosis is Light... So no matter where you go, (G)nosis is there... These works range from the simple, intelligent, fun, new and authentic; to the most complex methods of an artists who seeks the liberation of both himself and his listener. This is challenging music that speaks in a symbolic language of the heart and soul; a beacon of light that serves to illuminate the darkest recesses of our souls, and this is just the beginning…
