Ceschi (pronounced Chess-key) Ramos has been in a lot of bands.
There�s the experimental post-psych-rock-hop-jazz-fusion outfit Anonymous Inc. started in the mid 1990s with his brother David, the genre-defying latin progressive group Toca which collaborated with everyone from Busdriver to Aceyalone, hardcore metal band Dead By Wedneday, the lo-fi synth pop group with Blue Sky Black Death called Deadpan Darling, the Crunk-rap crew Knuck Feast and many more that he may or may not own up to.
But most of us know Ceschi Ramos best as a one man band.
Drawing from the experience of these groups, he ignites crowds around the world with simply his acoustic guitar, a laptop and the bravado of his dynamic voice. From quiet and playful indie folk ditties to literally pushing the audience, spitting fast-chopping raps; Ceschi embodies the spirit of a true showman - proving to us that one man can do it all.
He�s spent the last four years since the release of his acclaimed They Hate Francisco False honing these skills and collaborating with an innumerable amount of today�s most talented MC�s, producers and artists of all genres. He�s toured America, Europe and Japan with independent hip-hop heroes such as Myka 9, Awol One, Sole and Onry Ozzborn and even created his own successful record label - Fake Four, Inc.- that these artists now call home. All the while, he still found time to play in those aforementioned many genred bands. Now, Ceschi is ready to release his new album on the world.
The One Man Band Broke Up, produced by DJ Scientist, paints a semi-fictional, somewhat autobiographical story of a one-man-band by the name of "Julius and The Bearded Savior" in an ongoing tale of stardom, deception, disappointment and failure within an unappreciative music industry. Friends including Sole, Astronautalis, Radical Face, 2econd Class Citizen, Cars & Trains and MiC K!NG contribute instrumentation and vocals.
The One Man Band Broke Up will be available on Ceschi�s own Fake Four, Inc. and in Europe on Equinox Records on June 29th 2010.
