Scottish Hip Hop Showcase
Glasgow born, Glasgow bred and now Glasgow based is Bright Sparks, an MC who deals in the Grime and modern hip hop genres. Returning to Glasgow in July 2012 after 4 years living between Australia, New Zealand & Japan Bright Sparks continues to pick up where he left off in his home city of Glasgow.
Performing live around some of Glasgow & Edinburgh's most notable music venues since 2002 he is an experienced live performer and has been tearing up the mic’s at some of Auckland City’s most popular club nights in New Zealand in his most recent gigs.
"I tend not to stick strictly to one genre and don't even like labeling the genre of my music, if I’m feeling the beat and think I can vocal it then I go for it" The words of Bright Sparks from a recent interview. 2013 will see Bright Sparks performing a lot more in Scotland and the UK as well as more possible dates in Australia, Japan & NZ at the end of the year.
He has just released "Pollution E.P" which is available for free download at www.brightsparks54.bandcamp.com and is working on a whole number of collaborations with artists from abroad and the UK.
