ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Often self-proclaimed, the Original Gangster from Cleveland, Bushwalla represents the eclectic talents of Billy “Bushwalla” Galewood. A native of Cleveland, he started performing musical theater at the early age of 9. For the next 10 years, he crafted his performing skills as a professional clown while on stage with the Cleveland Opera, Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival, and the Cleveland Ballet. In 1995, Billy set out to New York City to study theater at the American Musical & Dramatic Academy. While in New York, he supported himself as a street performer incorporating such feats as juggling, magic, chair-balancing, and fire-breathing.

Now after spending five years in Los Angeles and two years in San Diego, Bushwalla is more than a one man boy band.
His sound is a unique blend of funk, rock, freestyle, acoustic hip-hop with a soul deeply rooted in authenticity and optimism. His writing talents came into being after notably co-writing Jason Mraz’s debut platinum album, Waiting For My Rocket to Come and sophomore release Mr. A-Z. Bushwalla’s debut EP release Ghetto Blaster (produced by Spooner Oldham) is cherished by fans worldwide and highly acclaimed in the Southern California media and radio circuit. The catchy hit Ghetto Blaster has left first time listeners and long-time fans with a reverberating melody that never tires. The full length album Autodidactical Freestyle & Radical is due for release in March 2008. In their live shows, Bushwalla and his “1-2-3 Band” experiment with an improvisational party-type atmosphere captivating audiences week after week.

You can predict this band will be unpredictable!

[Bushwalla] is charged with gratitude and creative energy ... [he and his 1-2-3 Band] coordinate flexibly like multiple arms on a musical octopus...

Sweet, Love It
Tounge twisting lyrical genius, along with Mr Mraz some of the best songs I've heard in recent years. Will be spreading the Bushwallian word back in Liverpool. Love it.
