Lichen is a one man musical project from Stoke on Trent (England). Lichen has been creating music in earnest since 2010. His music combines elements of hip hop, folk and electronica, with dense lyrics that cover both human and global issues and try to explore all aspects of the human experience.
Lichen has released one of his tracks, Drift 1, to Studio 4632, and I hope for more. His music is truly inspirational. I particularly enjoy music that crosses boundaries, is fresh, and creative. Lichens' music is that, and more. As you will see from Drift Pt 1.
LICHEN...A MOST BEAUTIFUL LYRICAL SOFT RAP
DRIFT. PT 1. AN ECLECTIC GOODY. I FOUND MYSELF LISTENING, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, TO THIS SOMEWHAT HAUNTING TUNE. A SEMI DARK JUXTAPOSITION OF THE SOFTEST CHILL BACKGROUND AGAINST A DEEP, INTELLIGENT LYRIC. RAP? WELL, YES, AND NO. IT DEPENDS UPON HOW YOU DEFINE IT. I SAY A MEMORABLE MELODY, A POETIC SOFT RAP, IN CREATIVE CONTRAST. IF YOU'RE SOMEONE WHO THINKS THEY DON'T CARE FOR HIP HOP/RAP, PLEASE LISTEN!
ALL IN ALL, I REALLY LOVE THIS SONG, WHICH IS BOTH A VERY SMART, AND A VERY STAND OUT, ARTISTIC ACHIEVEMENT.
