Producer/hip-hop artist Thunderbird Gerard has announced that he will be releasing his debut free T.R.O.U.B.L.E EP May 6th. A New Yorker by way of Berlin, Thunderbird Gerard has been cultivating his style for quite some time. Upon leaving the US after his 20th birthday, Thunderbird Gerard made his way to England where he lived illegally under an assumed name, working in kitchens as an Illegal Alien accompanied by periods of poverty and homelessness. This, however was not in vain. Shortly there after Gerard inked a publishing deal with BMG and started the documentation of his time on the road through his T.R.O.U.B.L.E. EP, the first chapter of this two part conceptual journey of an emotional tale based on the coming ups in Smalltown USA, scraping by in slum town London to finding love and redemption in his current location, Berlin.
New to US ears, Gerard has been putting in the work across the pond already. His first single/video “Thunderbird” was named “Next Hype” from BBC’s Radio 1 famed DJ Zane Lowe and has garnered over 300,000 youtube views. A premier on Fact Mag led too UK recognition and now he’s coming for the USA. Stay tuned for great things to come from Thunderbird Gerard.
