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 with his debut track “Movies”. Since then he's released tracks “Just On Drugs”, “Woke” and “Brown Paper Bag”, to name a few.
Having recently signed with Interscope Records, Yoshi’s debut recording with the label, a mixtape entitled AMERICAN RAVER, was released on October 12th. 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.
