We’re sometimes called Obscurely but that’s misspelled. We coined the word, “Obscurley” out of our use of poor English in 2019. It’s l-e-y like Bob Marley. Below is some boring boilerplate text from our Record Label:
Debuting Obscurley’s a Live Album entitled, “Potcake Parliament,” distributed in February 2020 by Record Union, the group’s song “Bay Street,” landed on ReverbNation’s Top 10 hip-hop charts for the United States the following month in March. The song was performed along with Vanilla Ice at Honey in Delray Beach, Florida, on February 8th as part of a charity benefit concert for injured rescue dogs called, Barks Babes & Bros. Opening up for Obscurley was Billboard’s Number 1 Rated EDM Recording Artist Kendra Erika. The group pledged to donate all proceeds from the album to dogs displaced and rescued from the Bahamas in the wake of Hurricane Dorian and presented a check for $1,000 to Peggy Adams Animal Rescue in South Florida that evening after the concert. Following the performance, Ben Crandell of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel wrote the following about the act, “One of the coolest upcoming hip-hop artists with an old-school feel we’ve heard since Eminem.”
Following Barks Babes, and Bros V, on July 7th, 2020, Obscurley performed via live-stream video for Play for Prop 2.0 to benefit a small live music venue in Lake Worth, Florida called Propaganda. Supporting acts were Ben Childs from Sonic Boom Six (SB6), Joey Calderaio, and Sierra Lane.
Following the cancellation of Kaaboo San Diego in September of 2020 due to COVID-19, where the group was slated to open up for fellow South African Dave Matthews, they instead performed at another charity benefit concert for rescue dogs on August 2nd, 2020, called Music and Mutts benefiting Salty Dog Paddle. The concert was Livestream Broadcast on Facebook and featured on the homepage of Jambase.com.
After taking an almost 1-year long hiatus from performing due to covid, Obscurley focused on recording a full-length studio album with Innerstate Music Group (IMG) and released “Lost Circus” at their first live and in-person show since going on lockdown at The Big Legrowlski in Portland, Oregon on July 30, 2021. The venue sold out to an audience of over 100 attendees.
Obscurley is currently on tour promoting the new album entitled “Lost Circus,” available on every streaming platform and most online record stores including amazon.com.
