By Samantha Blackwell
Johnny Rourke's latest CD!
The Fortress Of Freedom Corporation along with FOF Records Inc., More Vision Inc. and FOF Entertainment are excited to announce that JOHNNY ROURKE will be performing at FOFSTOCK on August 1, 2011 at Yonge-Dundas Square! Here is some more about Johnny Rourke from his website http://johnnyrourke.com:
"Johnny Rourke, aka. John Dough, is the next big thing to come out of the hotbed of talent that is Toronto, Canada. He is Hip-Hop's alternative to meaningless music and his lyrics and delivery will bring purpose back into the mainstream scene. Johnny Rourke’s music has attitude and emotion. It has the power and infectious melodies that will inspire a cult-like following.
Johnny Rourke started out, like most emcees, as a b-boy, dancing in neighborhood crews and battling for props and respect. Originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia, he soon moved to the metropolis of Toronto. His love of Hip-Hop music and culture gradually transcended him into the art of rapping over beats. He excelled at everything he ever did and he soon found label’s courting him. Johnny’s first record deal took him across Canada, from Toronto to Vancouver, and then eventually into the United States, where he perfected his craft on the stages and in the studios of Los Angeles.
One deal turned into another and Johnny Rourke found himself living the “Rap Life” in plush Hollywood homes and studios for a few years. This talented emcee made his bones and earned his Hip-Hop credentials in California, rubbing elbows with music moguls and celebrities on a daily basis. There was no doubt that Johnny Rourke was on the path to success and it led him through many business ventures and entertainment deals.
This is the heart of aggressive and artistic expression through music. Johnny Rourke is a born lyricist and entertainer. He has recorded music and performed with Hip-Hop icons, King T, Birdman, Grandmaster Caz, Sticky Fingaz of Onyx, Kid Frost, Raven Symone, DJ Pooh, RasKass, Raheim of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five and also worked alongside rising stars like Baby Bash, Lil Uno, Mr.Shadow, Jordan Croucher, Classified, Bad Azz, Tha Lowlifes and many more.
Johnny Rourke makes music with a deep soul, a strong voice and perfect metronome instinct, rhyming over trance-like beats and rhythms. He is the place where so-called RapRock, Alternative Rock, Gangsta Rap and Hip-Hop meet. He is that blend, that puzzle and that ultimate serenity of hardcore Hip-Hop tracks laced with heavy, poetic, aggressive and real vocals."
Experience Johnny Rourke!
From all of us at Fortress Of Freedom, FOF RECORDS, More Vision and FOF Entertainment. we wish Johnny Rourke all the best at FOFSTOCK!
