E.ROSE is of his own Uniqueness, with songs spanning from Funk, Soul, Alternative, Country, Rockabilly/punk/thrash, Disco, Hip Hop and Rock, all with a hip hop foundation.
His influences start with a solid foundation in Hip Hop via Beastie Boys and RUN DMC. Beyond that he also draws much influence from Kid Rock, Curtis Mayfield, Kenny Chesney and Funkadelic to name a few.
Outside of his Hip Hop performances, E.ROSE is a full time single father. His daughter comes first before anything else. He is also a baseball fanatic and professional cook. He was close to franchising a Roscoe’s at one point in his life.
Currently he is running a successful BBQ catering service in Fresno "E.ROSE's Musicians Kitchen".
In the past 4 years he has also dedicated much of his time to developing a Hip Hop web show called Cali Mic Check. The show, which is available on YouTube, highlights known and unknown Hip Hop artists from the Fresno area as well as artists from other communities in California. The goal of the show is to provide some insight into ways that different Hip Hop artists approach their craft and to provide more exposure for lesser known artists.
"Making Metal Silly Since 2007"
Travis Nole - Guitar, Bass, Production, Master of Absurdities
Cockamamie Jamie started in hip-hop break dancing in front of the local Toys 'R' Us as a kid in the early-80s, and later participating in local rap cyphers and battles in the mid-90s to early 2000s. This led to his involvement in the Central California based hip hop crew Neighborhood Watch (2000-2005). There Jamie met Boney Beezly, with whom he formed the comedic, highly stylish, dynamic, and quirky duo known as The Argyle Pimps. Jamie and Boney have worked closely with DJ EngLebuRt, whose “golden oldies”-based beats underpin The APs' older-than-old school sensibility, and together they independently released the critically praised, “Invisible Jet-Ski's” album.
Jamie has enjoyed recognition from many respected representatives of the underground hip hop world, performing in support of KRS One, Sugarhill Gang, The Pharcyde, Ugly Duckling, Pigeon John, Immortal Technique, Little Brother, Planet Asia, and Hieroglyphics, among others. Cockamamie Jamie has also enjoyed notoriety for the infamous “Piss Battle”, a viral video screened on Comedy Central's “Tosh.0” website, Worldstarhiphop.com, Web Soup, and TruTV's "TruTV Presents" television program in which Jamie humiliates his opponent at the Battle of the Chiefs MC battle (2010), firstly with his superior lyrical prowess, and secondly with his brash, and brazen act of deliberate incontinence. A battle that must be seen to believe, Jamie definitely leaves his mark...in more ways than one.
Recently, Jamie has been working on two separate solo projects and has been in talks with an indie label in Japan about a re-release of The Argyle Pimps' first album, “Invisible Jet-Ski's”.
The first of these projects will be released in the Summer of 2013.
