Tugaloo Blue Brings a Rare Hip-Hop/Bluegrass Hybrid

Tugaloo Blue Brings a Rare Hip-Hop/Bluegrass Hybrid


With a name that reflects his background, Tugaloo Blue taks his Ozark upbringing into a new realm of musical expression.  Bluegrass and hip-hop have rarely met each other in a fluid and listenable way, but for this 21-year old upstart, it comes naturally. A fiddle player from the age of 2 years old, Tugaloo Blue's music reflects his Branson, Missouri roots. Collins 26 is the first release from a musician that took his college experience to explore musically rather than in the classroom. Named after Tugaloo's college dorm address, Collins 26 is the debut release for an artist determined to exist outside the lines of what's been done before.
