Artist


SPOKEN WORD

Andrew Ward is a spoken word artist from the UK, who embodies all the worldly influences that are present in a cosmopolitan city such as London. He draws primarily from a rich cultural inheritance of an African Diasporic Legacy, born in Malta, educated in the Caribbean and brought to England in early childhood.

Inspired by both Hip Hop and Reggae, Andrew Wards artistry is one with a social conscience that captures the reality of the urban experience with local clarity and has international resonance. As the former front man of rap band Katch 22, Andrew Ward aka Huntkillbury FiNN, has been active in Hip Hop since 1989. In 1999, he began a solo career with the release of an EP entitled Mummys Little Soldier.

Recently he has worked with hip hop crews such as Def Tex, Lotek and hot new comers 3rd Stream, gigged extensively with Nu-Metal band Toy and Dance impresario Shur-I-Kan, ignited the stage with Drum N Bass queen J B Rose and performs regularly with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Ensemble Esoterica, and The Tunde Jegede Ensemble on the classical music scene. A consummate performer, he has over 300 gigs under his belt. Performing live and creating live music remains his greatest interest and challenge.

The album Vitalistics is Finns latest offering it utilizes a vibrant blend of live and programmed material which slightly departures from the conventions of current Hip Hop and leans more toward the Avant Garde or Alternative Hip Hop sound.
