JPR Live Session: Bhi Bhiman

Sep 1, 2017

Bhi Bhiman's musical style has drawn a diverse range of comparisons from Rodriguez and Woody Guthrie to Nina Simone and Bill Withers. An accomplished guitarist and clever lyricist, it is Bhiman’s unique voice that truly sets him apart.

Bhiman's sophomore LP, Rhythm & Reason, includes a lead single that debuted with a hilarious music video starring Key & Peele’s Keegan-Michael Key, and songs that range in subject matter from breakfast food to the life of militant iconoclast Huey P. Newton. It is this mix of humor and social commentary that has led critics to deem the album, “equal parts Curtis Mayfield and Richard Pryor."
