Critically acclaimed hip-hop artist Plex unleashes his Demons on June 19th, 2012 [PSA]
Toronto, ON – His debut solo album Brainstorm captured the hearts and minds of audiences from all walks of life. His provocative, socially relevant lyrics have broken down barriers, proving that a Native kid from the Projects can connect to all people, around the world, through music.
On June 19th, Plex returns with Demons (URBNET). A raw, gritty masterpiece that explores the darker side of his own life experience, after all – this is a guy who has lived life at rock bottom and has found a way, through music, to emancipate himself from the cycle of poverty.
With a steady and growing fan base, Plex continues to push boundaries and address issues rarely heard in mainstream music. But his unique slant is that he doesn’t take himself too seriously, his razor sharp wit and sense of humour emanate from even the darkest of places.
Through Demons, Plex has mastered the art of integrating life experience and cultural perspective into wildly infectious composition and immaculate production design.
In addition to music, Plex is committed to supporting emerging artists through his independent record label New Leaf Entertainment. He also dedicates his time to the aboriginal community byway of facilitating workshops in music, overcoming addiction and youth empowerment.
Demons is now available through New Leaf Entertainment and distributed by URBNET.
