KOBIE DEE W/ BARKAA
Representing Maroubra in Sydney's South, Kobie Dee is one of the most exciting new voices emerging in Australian rap. Combining a unique gift for storytelling, poignant social commentary and an ability to connect with audiences on an emotive level, he clearly sets himself apart from his contemporaries.
His latest release, Role Models is his third single this year released through Bad Apples. A hard-hitting track about the cycle of poverty and drug use, it joins a growing catalogue of powerful material that has garnered over 7 million streams to date.
A natural performer with a clear concise delivery, his songs come to life in the live context with the audiences hanging onto his every word. With impressive supports for the likes of Dave, Dan Sultan & Briggs, he could be one of those few artists that are even better on stage.
With a solid fan-base across Australia, and a stack of new music on the way, this exciting new artist is going to make waves on the Australian music scene in the near future.
