"One of LA's smartest young voices" says the Los Angeles Times about the Chicago-born and South LA-based Open Mike Eagle. Born Michael Eagle, OME has a knack for disarming listeners with mesmerizing harmonies while presenting his droll observations of human behavior delivered with deft wit. As a student of what he calls 'the Rap Graduate School" of Leimert Park's Project Blowed, he is an heir apparent to indie rap luminaries Busdriver, Aceyalone, and Pigeon John. He has also fostered an audience in the comedy world having performed numerous times at the world famous Upright Citizens Brigade Theater and being the only hip-hop act ever invited to be the musical guest at the Paul F.Tompkins variety show. An emcee savvy enough to explain the nuances of the current financial troubles on one song, while honest enough to describe his own drunken and misguided text messaging in the next, Mike Eagle is poised to become a standout in the new order of independent hip-hop.
