The stars of Heaps Decent.
A prodigy possessing talent and wisdom well beyond his years, Ravin (pronounced Rah-vin) has been a bright spark for Heaps Decent. 18 years of age and Australian born with a Samoan heritage, he has lived most of his life in South-West Sydney and offers a refreshing spin on these experiences from the perspective of his 6 years rapping.
We first met Ravin at our ‘Home Base’ workshop, where he showed promise from the get go. In such a short time we’ve turned around an incredible EP, singles from which have already gained praise with rotation on Sydney’s FBi Radio and triple j Unearthed.
Big H is one of the strongest young MCs to come out of Sydney. Formerly a member of Stunna Set, he has performed at festivals such as Good Vibrations and Parklife and supported acts such as Bone Thugs & Harmony, Urthboy and Diplo. As a solo artist, he’s worked with Heaps Decent for the last 3 years. He’s shared studio time with international club artists including AC Slater, Jessie Rose and A-Trak and collaborated with local MCs Fowl Murk, Monica Winter and Tasha Lee. Big H will be big.
Tasha Lee Marshall is a Sydney-based singer, songwriter and guitarist who has been writing songs since the age of 7. Since working with Heaps Decent she has performed on FBi Radio, Channel V and most recently as the support act for Canadian experimental/electronic artist Grimes at both of her sold-out shows at Oxford Art Factory. Catch her behind a guitar alongside Fowl Mouf Murk, Meds The Misfit or Big H or find her at Home Base recording her own songs with the Heaps Decent crew every Monday afternoon.
Fowl started off making his own beats, writing and recording his own raps at the age of 15. After moving back and forth between Auckland and Sydney, Fowl decided to settle here and began working with us. With the assistance of our facilitators he has really started to take his sound to the next level, both as a solo artist and as one half of Terrible Twins with fellow Heaps Decent artist Medz the Misfit.
A standout workshop participant, Icey’s incredible flow and unique vocal sound turn heads with each new rhyme. Coming from a musical family with a guitarist father and singing sister, it’s no surprise Icey is a natural performer. Icey’s repertoire draws from his love of hip hop and his upbringing as an Islander growing up in Australia, combining catchy hooks and infectious phrases to captivate his audience. Keep an ear out for this guy – he’s only just getting started!
