With a story as interesting as his songs Hip-Hop artist Bert G takes his unique brand of music on the road in the most original way. The educator and innovator takes his creativity from solely audio to the avant-garde performance. Though his sound is perfect for the proper stage and sound system, with singles like ‘Don’t Need That Energy’ that boast witty lyrics, humor and insight over top booming bent 808 bass, crisp percussion and hauntingly distorted keys, Bert G opts for making his own unique way when it comes to touring. Kicking off the #NoStageTour Bert G stated “I didn’t have a platform so I created my own platform” in the next few months he’ll be performing in 7 non-traditional places.
The line “I don’t need a follower to tell me that I’m worth something” acts as more than a witty introspective one-liner in the hook on “Cali Vibe” and more of a mission statement. The educator who returned to rap in his 30’s after leaving Hip-Hop for a decade takes his motivational speaking skills to a meta level while schooling artists on how to build a fan base and force the spotlight onto oneself. Bert blends his music passion with years of experience as a Boys & Girls Clubs Director, middle school teacher and motivational speaker, who’s spoken to over 60,000 students. After already performing at a subway station with a Cellist Carlos Cooper, some other spots will include a Bodega, BKYLN CREPE Juice Bar which will cap off the entire tour as part of the Make Music NYC’s Music Festival on June 21st.
With a message in his music Bert G is on a mission to impact the hearts and minds of the listeners, to be the first educator to win the best Rap Song Grammy. With a history of working with brands to make an difference and working as an After School Director for Children of Promise he partnered with the Brooklyn Nets and Kaboom! to help build a playground for 150 children with incarcerated parents. He plans to further help the community with his ‘No Stage Tour’. With a solid sound that is catchy, energetic, intelligent and live Bert G has everything at his disposal for an artistic takeover. Crafting anthems that are perfect for any occasion and leave a lasting impact on the listener this innovative educator is reaching more people than ever with his music and mission. His conviction is felt in every song so when stating “I don’t need a stage. I am the stage” it is obvious that the #NoStageTour will be the place to be.
