Official Cover for Beardyman’s new single“6AM (READY TO WRITE)”British award winning multi-vocalist, producer and comedian Beardyman has unveiled his latest single “6am (Ready to Write)” via RCA Records.
The track is an infectious, rumbling melody featuring the voice of legendary commentator Joe Rogan reading Hunter S. Thompson’s daily routine. Needing little introduction, Hunter S. Thompson is considered one of the greatest writers and degenerates of his generation, best known for writing the psychedelic satirical black comedy novel “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” which was later turned into a cult classic film directed by Terry Gilliam and starring Johnny Depp.
Beardyman, the groundbreaking looping pioneer’s rise to success began with him winning the UK Beatbox Championships two years in a row in 2006 and 2007. Creatively shackled by technology and his vast musical ideas, he then went on to develop the world’s most advance live music production system known as BEARDYTRON_5000, allowing him to improvise studio quality cutting edge dance music in real time. He unveiled the BEARDYTRON_5000 at the annual global TED conference. He also received a standing ovation for his talk which only happened for a few of the groundbreaking talks that year.
Beardyman has toured the world consistently for over a decade headlining boutique festivals and performing on main stages and big tops ranging from Bestival to Coachella, Fuji Rocks to Glastonbury and everything in between. He was even asked to open the entire Glastonbury festival two years running which lead to him being credited by BBC Breakfast as the “King of Sound, Ruler of Beats.”

Beardyman has previously collaborated with artists as varied as Chase and Status, Imogen Heap, Groove Armada, Jack Black, Herbie Hancock and Tim Minchin, who have all described him as a musical genius. More recently he lent his vocals to Fatboy Slim’s single “Eat Sleep Rave Repeat” which he astonishingly improvised and recorded in one take. The track became a global phenomenon and reached #3 in the UK charts.
With further releases and a tour set to drop later this year, Beardyman is continuing to cement his reputation as one of the UK’s biggest musical talents.
