Brockway Biggs “Pinch Hitter”

Posted by LB

A few years back I met a girl named Jennifer who called herself a "super fan", and she took a lot of pride in the job. Always going to shows, telling people about new bands and just generally being very enthusiastic.

She saw her role as an important part of music, and it is, although I had never really thought of it that way. There are so many elements that combine to make a success in the music industry, and usually it's just called "support".

And nobody supports the Canadian hip hop scene like Brockway Biggs.

New Brunswick's Telegraph Journal said that:

Mr. Biggs has become known as one of the best and most loyal hip-hop publicists and champions in the country, a man who'll help like he's your best friend.

He is! He does! And I have got a lot of love for Brockway Biggs. He even raps about being a publicist in this song - Pinch Hitter.

From the new Brockway Biggs' album, In Awe of Simplicity, it's "smooth like Botox".
