Lowkey is a 23 year old poet, playwright, political activist and award winning MC from London. This year along, he's toured internationally, performing to crowds everywhere from Glastonbury and Trafalgar Square to Palestine, Israel, New York and Austria.

Born in 1986 in Tooting, South London, he first made his name at the age of 17 after attending the open mic sessions at the infamous Deal Real record shop on Carnaby Street, Central London. The first time he went, he battled another MC named Loki for use of the name. Lowkey was named the winner by the audience and Lowkey's career has gone from strength to strength ever since.

Lowkey formed the superband Mongrel with members of the Arctic Monkeys, Babyshambles and Reverend and the Makers, and their debut album was released free in the Independent Newspaper earlier this year.
