ELEPHANT ROOM

Elephant Room 2014

Elephant Room is something that unquestionably must be experienced!!! The band’s name derives from the metaphor “Elephant in the room” which is largely due to the in-your-face unabashed lyrical content. The group is able to tap into political, pop culture, and social issues in a unique and unprecedented fashion. Formed in early 2009, this multifarious hip hop group out of Louisville, Kentucky has an all-embracing sound that contains various elements of hip hop, rock, pop, and the right blend of metal.

ER’s uniqueness and authenticity has turned the heads of even the most skeptical critics. Fans range from various musical tastes in most part due to band’s bewildering live performances. Each individual member displays their own artistic approach and personal magnetism for the audience. To say they are entertaining is a gross understatement! Since their debut, ER has shared the stage with local and national artists such as Yelawolf, Rittz, Hed (P.E.), The Villebillies, The Wu-Tang Clan, Sublime with Rome, and Tech N9ne.

The group recently recorded and released their first full studio album! “Dumbo’s Circus” is an accomplishment that not only showcases the band’s appeal and stylishness, but also displays their growth and maturation as artists. It would seem, based off of “Dumbo’s Circus,” that the proverbial “sky is the limit” for where this band could go…and even more importantly, for the music they have an obvious passion to create. “Dumbo’s Circus” has features on tracks from artists such as RITTZ, Carri McMullan, Skinny Deville of “Nappy Roots,” Child of the “Villebillies” and “Gentlemen Hounds,” T-Razor, Manfred, Jellyroll, Demi ‘Pinecone’ Demaree, Jellyroll, and Bukshot!

Elephant Room has previously released “The Movement” which is available as a free download on this website!

Shevy Chase – Faygoluvers interview

Island Earth Music : May 9, 2014 10:08 am : ELEPHANT ROOM NEWS

Taken before Manfred was officialy part of Elephant Room - Photo by: Shaun Wilson
Welcome back Family! That’s right, it’s time once again for another installment of the Underground Spotlight. I’m Johnny O and I’m here to once again bring you an interview with another of the underground’s finest. This time around we sit down with Elephant Room’s front man Shevy Chase. While he has been with the group for years, his most recent effort just happens to be a solo effort entitled “Rocksteady.” I actually had a chance to listen to the album before its’ release and was more then a little impressed.

The album itself mixes classic rock tracks into a beat and the outcome is surprisingly well done. Okay, I could ramble for awhile longer, but you’re most likely here for the interview, so let’s get right into it.

Johnny O: Although fans may know you as the front man of the group Elephant Room, can you tell us a little more about yourself?

Shevy Chase: It’s really hard to talk about myself as an emcee without mentioning Elephant Room because it has been my entire existence for the past couple of years. I started rapping around 2004-2005, mainly just free styling for fun. After a year or two in that lane, I began to take it more seriously and picked up a pen and a pad. Fast forward a bit, Elephant Room began with DJ Boogieman and Papaw. We had put together enough tracks to start doing some small shows throughout the area. A year or so later, that spiraled into a band from which we started to make some real noise. I’ve been working with Island Earth Music since 2011 and had a big part in its creation. I’m a huge fan of all music; so being able to make it for such a large audience is a dream come true. I grew up primarily on rock n roll and country music until the age of 12 when I was introduced to hip-hop, after that I was hooked. I still enjoy all genres of music but hip hop/rap is definitely my favorite.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – 04/28/2014

Louisville, Kentucky – Elephant Room announces the addition of a new vocalist the well-established Louisville, Kentucky group has enlisted veteran vocalist Manfred Formally of the group Code Red.

About Manfred:
Manfred is a force to be reckoned with in the music industry being a member of the music group Code Red. With his diverse flow and his experience Manfred is poised to show he is one of the best MC’s around. Manfred has shared the stage with such acts as 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, Wyclef Jean, Trey Songz, Afroman, Villebillies, Nappy Roots and a ton of others.

About Code Red:
Formed from the deep indie talent pool of Louisville, Kentucky, Code Red has been the crew to contend with since 1998. With the musical motto “Not Confined, Not Defined,” Code Red bridges the hip hop generation gap with healthy reverence for old school as well as daring reflections of the new school. The result? Their debut album, All Aboard, on Toucan Cove Entertainment is one of the most eagerly anticipated of 2006.

About Elephant Room:
Elephant Room (ER), formed in early 2009, is an alternative hip-hop group out of Louisville, Ky.

Since their debut, ER has shared the stage with local and national artists such as Yelawolf, Rittz, Hed (P.E.), Villebillies, The Wu-Tang Clan, Sublime with Rome, Tech N9ne, Rehab, Flaw, Wrekonize, E-40, and more.
