Toronto, ON
As one of Toronto’s highly-celebrated hip-hop artists and renowned lyricists ROCHESTER has played an influential role in shaping Canada’s music scene for the last several years. His last EP Cowabunga kicked-off the artist’s wave of releases in 2016 delivering much-anticipated new music to long-time fans and introducing new fans nationally and internationally to his impressive verbal acrobatics. Cowabunga saw ROCHESTER reconnect with Grammy winning OVO Sound producer Boi-1da on his single Grateful after experiencing much success on their last collaboration Pull Up a hugely popular song that received some warranted remix treatment featuring rap icon Kardinal Offishall and Grammy Award nominee Fito Blanko among others. This success was followed by his single Good Vibes dubbed as “one of Toronto’s summer anthem of 2017” to Balance an immersive narrative where ROCHESTER gets personal by sharing the roller coaster of personal and professional experiences that he’s had to sustain through his career, to Lullabye that delivers a motivational ‘I’m going to outwork you’ message to listeners. His latest single ‘Last of the Mohicans’ is aimed to inspire you to hustle further or if you need that extra push to achieve your dreams. Together with his label Blocktrade Records ROCHESTER plans to create and release more new music through to 2019 in preparation to his next EP that is titled after his beliefs and the message he’s been promoting, ‘Dreams Don’t Have Deadlines’, releasing in May 2019.
