PremRock: New Album & US Tour Avails (w/ DJ Abilities, DJ Halo)
Recently penning his fourth studio album A Clean, Well-Lighted Place, NYC based, Pennsylvania native rap artist PremRock has just completed his 5th international tour and is showing no signs of slowing down. Boasting a list of who’s who producers (Blockhead, Quelle Chris, Small Pro, 2 Hungry Bros, Has-Lo and more) ACWLP has proved to be the ascending artist’s definitive work. PremRock is widely lauded throughout the underground for his strong presence on tour and in the recording catalog. His unique style can be compared to Guru and Aesop Rock with heavy injections of literary influences from psychedelic rock. His music draws in listeners with a voice powerful enough to move crowds internationally. Balancing the status of road warrior and studio junkie, Prem has big plans for 2014.

Praise for ACWLP:
"He had the crowd's full, undivided attention. Hands were in the air, fans were singing along, and the crowd was fully engaged: evidence of a true emcee."
- April Dawn, The SOURCE
"It is a record that had to happen and while he empties his pockets on the floor for us. He makes it worth our time by having plenty of conversation pieces and talismans to discuss over a few beers. "
- Blake Gilespie, IMPOSE Magazine
"A Clean, Well-Lighted Place is a gorgeous album. PremRock put together a really enjoyable and deep listen that is worthy of your time and your money."
- Alaska, SYFFAL.com
"A man who I strongly endorse as one of most underrated self-produced underground rappers of the 2010's... a mixture of Guru, Ed O.G. and Prodigy in all the right amounts." - Steve "Flash" Juon, RapReviews.com
"Over the last couple of years, PremRock has really been putting in the work to push himself creatively and to separate himself from the rest of the pack. At this point in his career, PremRock has really pushed himself to become a well-rounded emcee, and it shows here." - Chi Chi Thalken, Scratched Vinyl

After releasing the emotive album The Orchid Days, L'Orange has added a post-script with a new vocal version of Will Wait helmed by poet Boog Brown. The new song, Until The Fall, finds Boog revealing a love story with intimate candor and vulnerability. A rare jewel in the Hip-Hop landscape, Boog matches the tremoring production with her own reminiscing on a love lost.
