Vancouver raised, Montreal based and with roots in Scotland, Ireland and Quebec, Rupert Common creates music in a way that is completely his own - combining the gentle skills of acoustic folk music with the mentally ambidextrous art of Hip-Hop. As a facilitator and community organizer, he has made international ties through hosting events, most notably, MC'ing the Vancouver Street Dance Festival, and co-hosting The Stew Jams. Rupert is currently writing a play which combines his love for spoken word and hip-hop culture with high fantasy. In researching for this project he is training consistently as a b-boy, creating music independently and studying the art of story-telling. His latest album, Veganese Folk-Hop Vol. 2 is due for release in September 2020. Rupert currently has a braided rat-tail which he plans to to get dyed aqua-green.
