ARTIST HIGHLIGHT:

Erik Flowchild - From The...
FROM THE...
ERIK FLOWCHILD will stir your emotions and stimulate your thoughts with his clever lyrics, relatable subject matter, and live stage energy. 
This hip-hop artist emerges from just outside of Toronto where he has spent most of his life growing up. As an advocate for preserving hip-hop culture, Flowchild has used every part of his life to push himself forward and fuel his creativity in music and art.
 
Last year, Erik released his debut project, the Child’s Play EP, a short body of work that asserts his belief that “artists and entertainers are not the same thing”. As he continues to surface, critics and fans alike will witness one of hip-hops finest in the making.
