As a rapper, trombonist, and producer, Kadesh has been wowing both suspecting and unsuspecting listeners with his musical versatility since his early teens. At age 11, 'Desh, as many of his listeners call him, began rapping and playing trombone within two weeks of one another. Now, the young emcee actively blends his jazz and hip hop backgrounds into body bouncing and head bobbing tracks that range from crunk to sultry, from melodic to face-melting. Kadesh's wide reaching and relatable content consistently wins over harsh hip hop critics with his lyrical dexterity, drawing from multiple influences, including his collegiate experience, socio-cultural musings, spirituality, and anime and video game related passions. He has collaborated with the likes of Steve Blum (the voice of T.O.M.) and indie hip hop staples such as Mega Ran and Richie Branson. Currently he is lighting up stages around the country, gracing such events as Official SXSW Showcases, MAGFest, PAX Prime, FanExpo: Dallas, Anime Expo & Otakon, as well as numerous music venues throughout the country.
