UK based Hip Hop and Spoken Word tal­ent Chris­ti­an Foley recently released his debut album Excom­mu­nic­a­tion. 

Excom­mu­nic­a­tion show­cases not only Chris­ti­an Foley’s unique ‘old school’ lyr­ic­al abil­ity but places it over con­tem­por­ary, for­ward think­ing pro­duc­tion. This album encom­passes a range of genres, influ­enced mainly by notions of Soul­ful Hip Hop and Spoken Word deliv­ery. Chris­ti­an’s sound could be com­pared to the likes of Loyle Carner and George the Poet, poet­ic raw UK edge with the beauty of well craf­ted rap lyr­ics.

The 16 track record, Excom­mu­nic­a­tion, is Foley’s first solo pro­ject, and reveals an unex­pec­ted, darkly com­pel­ling side to the artist most known for repeated, light­hearted vir­al free­style fame.

Chris­ti­an Foley is an inter­na­tion­ally renowned edu­cat­or by day, using music to engage classrooms and to pro­mote against cur­rent issues such as knife crime. He is also an ambas­sad­or for men­tal health, and will be per­form­ing his latest work on ITV on Fri­day 15th Feb­ru­ary.

His impress­ive impro­visa­tion has since seen him grace many of the most influ­en­tial plat­forms across the UK, not only on BBC One and Sky News, but also appeal­ing to new audi­ences on This Morn­ing and Good Morn­ing Bri­tain. 

Chris­ti­an’s tal­ent has taken him to Oprah’s Tele­vi­sion Net­works, PMQ’s at West­min­ster, TED talks and the Premi­er League. Glob­ally renowned rap­per 50 Cent also shared foot­age of Foley to his mil­lions of fol­low­ers.

Along­side his place in Hip Hop, Chris­ti­an is a not­able fig­ure in the poetry world, being noted by Sky Arts as in the ‘top 20’ prom­ising artists in the UK.

Every month he hosts Spoken Word Sundaes, a plat­form that is recog­nised as a hot­bed for emer­ging new tal­ent.

Although in its early days, Foley’s music­al career has garnered the atten­tion of some of the most influ­en­tial radio DJ’s in the coun­try with the lead single from his mix­tape, ‘The Mean­ing of a Break’ was selec­ted by Huw Steph­ens for Radio 1’s Best New Music. 

The debut album by Chris­ti­an Foley, Excom­mu­nic­a­tion is avail­able to listen NOW on all major digit­al plat­forms.
