6 Months Into Touring, One.Be.Lo Kicks It In The Sun On The Vans Warped Tour and Other Summer Dates

(Brooklyn, NY July 13, 2005) One.Be.Lo, one of 2005's most critically lauded indie hip-hop MC's, has just added over 60 Summer 05' tour dates including a feature spot on the Van's Warped Tour. One.Be.Lo has been touring in support of his debut album, S.O.N.O.G.R.A.M., non-stop since January, and will now finish out the summer with appearances at smaller local venues while traveling throughout the country as part of the Warped Tour.

Hard work and incessant touring is not a new phenomenon for the Pontiac, Michigan native. One.Be.Lo (also known as One Many Army) has been writing rhymes since 1988 and rockin' mics since 1992. One.Be.Lo first started turning heads in 2000 when he and his partner Senim Silla's group Binary Star released the now classic indie hip-hop album, Master of the Universe.

Since going solo, One.Be.Lo has been busy establishing his own record label, Subterraneous Records, recording music, and performing throughout the Midwest and West Coast. After a bidding war amongst several independent record labels, One.Be.Lo became the first officially-signed artist of powerhouse indie hip-hop label Fat Beats Records and has been on the road promoting his album S.O.N.O.G.R.A.M ever since.

Despite only having 2 weeks off in the previous 6 months, Lo finds life on the road an integral part of his being. "I view touring as a way of life, not a job. Like Guru said, I'm 'feeling satisfaction from the street crowd reaction.' The best way to promote myself is to stand in front of an audience and give them the whole package; audio, visual, my personality, etc. You can't get all that just from listening to my records. Touring is what I gotta do right now." In between the 40 dates with the Warped Tour, One.Be.Lo will perform an additional 24 dates at local venues supported by local artists.

You can come see One.Be.Lo in up close and personal at one of the following dates:
