Musically diverse, a fan of verticality of sound forms, & the occasional horizontal. Growing up to choir & orchestral influences and diving head-first into hard rock, metal and alternative, in addition to his background in Hip Hop, Trip Hop, Soul and 70's funk & 80's disco, he developed into a musical tyrant, taking no shorts when it comes to delivery. Tha Tyrant's musical influences are somewhere between then, now, & who knows...all about bangin' sonics, atmospherics and the goodness that comes from them! Born in '79, he considers himself one of the last of the true dirt-sweat funkateers...heavily influenced by Parliament-Funkadelic and James Brown. Gez Tha Tyrant raps for hard rock band Outside The New, produces @Duck Room Produkshinz and also alter-egos as DJ WetBone on the 1s & 2s.
