The Undercover Hippy
“Like the love-child of Steel Pulse, Kate Tempest, and The Sleaford Mods” Tom Robinson,
BBC6MusicBilly Rowan aka The Undercover Hippy has been performing at festivals since 2008, working his way up from being a solo singer-songwriter playing in small marquee stages, to now having a full band of incredible musicians and playing main-stages at some of the UK’s best independent festivals. The band have been regulars at Glastonbury, Boomtown, Electric Picnic, Eden Festival in Scotland and Beautiful Days, plus many more around the UK and Europe. They also tour extensively in the UK twice a year, playing to packed venues from Edinburgh to Penzance.
The music is best described as politically driven acoustic roots reggae folk-hop, with feel good vibes and a sly sense of humour. The live show is high energy, interactive, and always leaves the crowd begging for more. Devoted fans travel the length of the UK for shows, audibly singing along with every chorus.
In April 2023 the band will release their long awaited fourth album “Not Paying Attention”, alongside multiple single releases and a comprehensive UK release tour.
