Originally hailing from central Iowa, but now spending plenty of time on the coasts, Coolzey takes inspiration from a wide range of genres, including hip hop and 90s indie rock, and has toured with Raashan Ahmad, Akil of Jurassic 5, Sadat X of Brand Nubian, and Joe Jack Talcum of Dead Milkmen. When he visited us for a performance of his new, yet to be released song, “Want It The Most,” his hip-hop influences were on display. Here, he performs the song at a DIY event and arts space in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
Featured song: “Want It The Most”
Coolzey’s latest release, Live From The Cave @ Dougman, was released July 1st.
