A native of Brooklyn, NY, Cannonball Statman performs heavy, fast-paced music, with singing, barking, speed-rapping, and Tuvan throat singing layered over an acoustic guitar tuned like a six-string sitar. His debut album "Icepick" was self-released in Spring 2014, followed by a USA tour with NYC-based art rock band The Grasping Straws. He continues touring, recording, and performing in NYC, while drumming in rock and roll supertrio The Dick Jokes, organizing live events in the NYC Antifolk scene, and editing the music section for local community newspaper Boog City. "Shriekofafreak!", the follow-up to "Icepick", will be released Summer 2015.
