Standing Ovation is a hiphop duo comprised of Bronze Baby Shoes who’s the producer of all the music and The Character who’s the lyricist flowing over all the beats. Think of them like a more modern day Eric B / Rakim, Will Smith / Jazzy Jeff or like a Macklamore and Ryan Lewis type group. Their music style sounds more like hardcore, backpack rap, infused with wicked funk, edm elements mixed perfectly over pungent, dueling lyrics. The Standing Ovation sound is quite extraordinary and unique.
The producer, Bronze Baby Shoes grew up being a fan of the legendary rap group Run DMC in the era of old school, hard core rap. But being from Washington DC he’s also draws inspiration from the music of DMV artist like Wale, Chuck Brown, Fat Trel and Young Glesh. The Character who’s the lyricist of the group is originally from New York and went to Howard University in Washinhton DC. Standing Ovation was birthed when The Character and Bronze Baby Shoes connected through a mutual friend rapper friend Jaysonic of the group Time Machine and soon after started creating music together.
Standing Ovation is signed to a small yet prosperous indie label Candle Wax Records. Their newest project and EP called “Coliseum” will drop January 15, 2017.
