"Eras of time, generations of humans and day-to-day moments are best defined by the soundtracks we cultivate to our lives. Years come and go but music, like nothing else, is able to revive those significant memories. Seattle-based group, KnowMads, consisting of two 21-year-old MCs, have been rapping and making music since their preteen days, and years from now, the sound of their words will solidify our memory.
Inspired by the likes of Nas, Jay-Z, Eminem, Lauryn Hill, Brother Ali, Outkast, Big L, and Tupac Shakur, the KnowMads started making their mark on the Seattle hip hop scene back in high school when members, Tom Pep and Tom Wilson met eachother through freestyle battles at rival football games. They later decided to collaborate and form KnowMads with original producer, Jesse Judd. With two unique and powerful voices and a passion fore true hip hop as well as musical innovation; Pepe and Wilson have learned how to command the ear of listeners. The two MC's bring forth a unique blend of styles, Wilson's hard-hitting punch lines and intricate rhyme schemes combined with Pepe's innovative flows and prolific thoughts make a truly original and Northwest-rooted sound. Their relevant music strikes chords with a younger generation, but their lyrics are wise beyond their years, attracting people of all ages and backgrounds.
At the age of 21, the KnowMads' accomplishments have exceeded those of many their age. They are true and open minded artists who continually seize the opportunity to diversify their portfolio by working with a variety of producers including, Jester (Jesse Judd), Peter Johnson, and Rand Bellar. The KnowMads have opened for artists such as Andre Nickatina, Zion I, Zack de la Rocha of Rage Against the Machine, Nappy Roots and recently worked with Seattle hip hop legend, Vitamin D. They have produced four albums, made several mixtapes and are currently completing solo projects as well as a new KnowMads album set to be released in 2011.
The KnowMads belive that music is a universal tool to create positive change and bring people together in this world. The KnowMads see music as a way to get through the days, and they write their hearts into every lyric in hopes that it will inspire someone else. Their passion for their art is evident in their songs which creates a captivating sound that will be a force in the future of music."
