L-FRESH The LION is renowned for his powerful presence, inspiring live shows and thought-provoking lyricism. In a short space of time, the Western Sydney artist has gone from underground events and ciphers to national tours and major festivals. It speaks of an MC with a sense of purpose and self-belief.
Inspired by the soulful movement in US hip hop of the late 1990s / early 2000s, and the love and respect for his own cultural and ancestral roots of the Sikhs from Punjab, India, L-FRESH is an artist like no other.
His debut album One (May, 2014) announced L-FRESH The LION as part of the new generation of hip hop artists currently making waves in the Australian music industry. Since then, he’s been on the road with the likes of Urthboy, Remi, Dead Prez and Talib Kweli, as well as at Woodford Folk Festival, NYE On The Hill, THE PLOT, Groovin the Moo, Splendour In The Grass and other Australian festivals.
2015 saw L-FRESH The LION take his first steps onto the international stage in the UK, and followed this high with the release of his sophomore album BECOME in May 2016 via Elefant Traks.
