Bush Tea is a Virgin Islands' Native Rapper whose sound consists of heavy 808s infused with the highs of steel pans and baritone vocals. She aims to connect her contemporary femininity with the cultural expectations of afro-Caribbean pop music, to challenge and enlarge the images of male/female/non-gender conforming interaction in popular music, and challenge how our views and policing of women's bodies (specifically) could contort our understanding of culture and the right to freely express ourselves. The combination of dense rhymes, pop sensibilities, and pure swagger is infectious. Her first single, Bad Gyal, has been on rota3on throughout The Caribbean on 95.1 Isle 95, 103.5 The Reef, Kairi FM, Q95, etc. and can be found on Tidal, Spo3fy, ITunes. Shazam, Apple Music, and more.
Bush Tea was flown to New York City to open for Nas' artist Bishop Nehru at a full house at The Knitting Factory, Brooklyn in Summer 2016. Her 2017 is starting off with a bang. Following a packed show at National Sawdust, Brooklyn and a two-week residency in Copenhagen, she's flying to perform in the Roskilde Music Festival. Her performance takes place alongside The Weeknd, Popcaan, and Princess Nokia. In addition, she's featured on Broadway World and AFROPUNK as a songwriter in the Girl Be Heard production, Blurred Lines.
