COUNT BASS D
Fresh on the heels of his new EP, Too Much Pressure, Featuring Snoop Doggis hitting' the stage in his new hometown!  2015 marked two decades since Count Bass D's debut, Pre-Life Crisis, hit the scene. Since then, the "Rapper With the Most Chords"  has augmented his Hip Hop skills as a multi-instrumentalist by truly mastering the art of sampling as well as the art of intellect. Of the start of career he has said, "my goal was to show that hip-hop had so much diversity and we could consider it a legitimate art form." And over the past 20 years he has proven just that through his ability to push the envelope both sonically and lyrical on records like Dwight Spitz (2002), BegBorrowSteel (2003) and Act Your Waist Size (2006); instrumental gems like Ear Regardless (2007), Handshake Vs Dap (2014), and Cloak & Dapper (2015); and through collaborations with some of hips hop's most creative and avant-garde artists: MF DOOM, Beastie Boys, Van Hunt, Edan, Kool Keith and Blueprint to name a few. Instantly New (2016) is the latest vocal album by Count Bass D.

He grew up as Dwight Farrell in the Bronx, London, and Canton, OH, and learned to play drums at age four through his father, a West Indian minister who encouraged him to perform music at his church. The Count quickly learned piano and organ, and added bass to his repertoire later on. Meanwhile, he fell in love with hip-hop and honed his rapping skills while hanging out with friends. After attending a music school in Pennsylvania and pursuing an interest in R&B and jazz, he enrolled at Middle Tennessee State University in Nashville for the sole purpose of using the school's equipment to finish a demo tape. While there, he also hosted his own rap video show on the campus television station. His demo tape wound up getting him a record deal, and his debut album, Pre-Life Crisis, which used solely live instrumentation, most of which was played by the rapper, was released early in 1995.
