Yoshi Flower got his first guitar - a one-of-one custom Taylor, which he still keeps beside him in bed most nights - from a client of his father, who provided pro bono legal work for musicians in the Detroit scene throughout the '90s. Twenty years later, Yoshi is hammering in the final nails on the coffin housing the music industry's idea of "normal."
He first appeared in March of 2018 with his debut track "Movies". Since then he's released tracks "Just On Drugs", "Woke" and "Brown Paper Bag", to name a few. Yoshi was a member of the "cosmic trap" duo Gosh Pith before making the trek to LA and starting his solo career. He met the artist Elohim, with whom he was roommates with. They wrote the track "Panic Attacks", which was featured on her debut self-titled album.
With a sound that's expansive and unique, he's not concerned with fitting into one particular genre. With musical tastes that span from 2Pac, Biggie and Eminem to Metallica, Oasis, Bob Marley, Diplo and GRiZ, he blends all of his influences into a mix of glitchy beats, hip-hop rhythms, indie rock and electronica to create a sound that is uniquely him. Yoshi had the opportunity to perform at Bonnaroo in 2017, the first performance of his solo career, and has opened for artists such as Dua Lipa, Elohim, Washed Out, Princess Nokia, & Flint Eastwood. He toured this past Fall with Whethan and SG Lewis, making plenty of new fans along the way.
Having recently signed with Interscope Records, Yoshi's debut recording with the label, a mixtape entitled AMERICAN RAVER, was released on October 12th, 2018. The mixtape is a collection of songs that he wrote as a way to cope with the crazy happenings in America and in the world right now, stuck at the crossroads between radicalism and utter apathy. With an album in the works for 2019 and plans to tour the world, it's safe to say that Yoshi Flower is only getting started. He just released his new single 'Dirty Water' on Interscope - February 15th.
