Mr. Grevis

Mr. Grevis

Mr. Grevis is an Australia based artist who has made an impression on the Australian hip hop music community. He lays timely lyrics with samples of old-school soul which makes for some catchy tracks that sing of Australian youth. He's an artist who provides thought-provoking social commentary and observations through his lyrics.

Early Life

Garry McPhee popularly known as Mr. Grevis was born in South Perth, Western Australia and he claims to have been free-styling since 16. He has been writing his own music as early as 2004 and has spent years working on his music before being approached by Obese Records in 2011. He said in 2012:

"I've been writing to music for last 8 years but I never really showed anyone my stuff I wanted it to be spot on."[3]

Career

Mr. Grevis released his debut album "The Sampler" in 2012 after being approached by Obese Records in 2011. His first track “the Youth” skyrocketed to the top of the Triple J Unearthed chart where it continued to take the number one spot for several weeks. Tunes “So High” and “Sunday Struggle” were also featured.

“The Youth,” remarkably, was written in only an hour and a half, after Grevis was shocked by young workers in the Pilbra who refused to respect the Remembrance Day minute of silence.

The accusatory lyrics are layered over a melancholy beat by Pauly P, taking aim at the attitude of young people today, and the society that raised them.[5][6]

A friendship with hip hop heavyweight Drapht – who gave him his first mic – along with beats from such talented producers as Dazastah, Rob Shaker and Trials, definitely hasn’t hurt the calibre of Mr. Grevis’s work. But it is primarily his ability to combine strong thematic lyrics with a catchy chorus that has brought the Perth rapper his recent success.[1]

He dropped the second album, My escape, in 2013 loaded with twelve hot tracks.
