L-FRESH The LION is a hip hop artist from South West Sydney, Australia. From the same mold as J. Cole and Black Thought from The Roots, his music is grounded in thought-provoking lyricism, providing social commentary from the perspective of an Australian born to migrant parents from Punjab, India. He has taken his music from South West Sydney to the world, most recently performing at the United Nations Headquarters in New York in late 2018 as a special guest of YouTube and the UN.
His inspiring live shows have seen him tour with icons including Nas, Talib Kweli and Dead Prez. In 2017, L-FRESH premiered the music video RACI$T / OUR WORLD at New York’s Tribeca TV Festival as part of YouTube's Creators for Change, and opened for Sir Elton John at Sydney’s Brandcast. This followed an ARIA nomination for his 2016 album “BECOME,” released on independent powerhouse label Elefant Traks.
2019 will be a big year for L-FRESH as he is set to release his next album: “South West”.
