Sweatshop Union Music/URBNET

Pigeon Hole makes rap anthems. Using a mash up of samples, synths and lo-fi recording techniques, the duo carve out a sound that is unique in modern hip hop. A sound that will see the new group become a mainstay amidst a world wide underground of trend hopping and disposable music.

Hailing from the left coasts’ talented Sweatshop Union, Pigeon Hole has established themselves both with their powerful live shows and their acclaimed debut record, Age Like Astronauts. The album brought listeners into their world – a world of small town nostalgia, unrequited love and disillusion with the modern state. Oh, and it’s fun. Released this past summer on URBNET records, the songs have grabbed the attention of radio, press and fans alike.

Pigeon Hole is Colin McCue and Lee Napthine, aka Dusty and Marmalade. They met at school on Vancouver Island then began making music and doing shows together. By 2002 they joined Sweatshop Union – a super group built of up and coming Vancouver hip hop artists. It didn’t take long for word to spread. The band was signed to Battle Axe Records that year, and EMI the following year. Using this platform, Pigeon Hole logged close to five hundred shows across North America and built a resume that reads like this:

– Shared stages and toured with The Roots, Talib Kweli, Black Eyed Peas, Snoop, Jurassic 5, Blackalicious, Living Legends, Ozomatli, De La Soul, and Tommy Guerrero
– Headlining major festivals such as Shambahla, Rifflandia, and Big Day Up
– Juno nominations with Sweatshop Union, Much Music awards, CHR radio awards and more
– Age Like Astronauts debuted #8 on the iTunes hip hop charts, reached #5 on the CBC Radio3 top 30, and #1 on charting US Campus/community radio. It has also spent 10 weeks on the Canadian college radio top 10, and guest features Moka Only, D-Sisive, and Mos Eisley of Sweatshop Union.
