Harry Edohouwka is ending 2019 on a melodic note with his compelling debut album Fire On The Mountain ! Fusing elements hip hop, reggae, and alternative rock with reality driven lyricism, Fire On The Mountain aims to bring heart to this frigid winter season.
Released on December 11, 2019, the self-reflective album takes us down a path of introspection and self-love, while chronicling Edohouwka’s enlightenment from his past mistakes as he navigates through life, towards a brighter future. From the dominant aggression of “No Rule”, to the haunting reality of “Black Sunday”, to the mysterious word play of “Soul Taker”, Edohouwka showcases how his personal struggles, turmoil, and eventual growth has shaped him into the man that he is today. Lyrics like “The devil and my doubt were holding hands” from “Did You Not Pray?” further illustrate his internal anguish and ultimately sets the tone for his road to redemption. Although a native of Dallas TX, Edohouwka is first generation American from Nigeria and values holding true to his family’s roots.
With his brand of music, he aims to inspire fans who find themselves in similar situations. With this being said, the album’s title couldn’t fit better. “This record was me coming to terms with this forever tussle I’m in,” Edohouwka says. “I’m the one who breaks the chains and the same one who ties me up”. “I am the fire on the mountain.”
Named by the Austin Chronicle as one of this year’s must see artists, Edohouwka is poised to cement his place among hip hop’s finest. What’s next for this rising Texas tornado? Keep up with him on his social media outlets below:
