(Editor’s Note: Femi’s first CD release show for “OWX LIVE” is tonight, Saturday, June 7th in Harrisburg, PA at the Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center. He also has shows coming up in D.C. and Bmore, make sure you check him out and get details at www.anartkeymusic.com.)
My latest Red Couch Interview is with Femi The DriFish, lead lyricist for The Out of Water eXperience (OWX). He has become the scene’s first bonafide “lyrical funk rock hip hop” superstar — his band has moved from spoken word poetry venues (where Femi began as part of The 5th L) to major venues in the region, including featuring at one of this city’s key shows for breaking new talent — 98 Rock’s “Noise In The Basement” hosted by Matt Davis. Find out how it all happened, what’s happening with it now, and where he plans to take it in the future.
