Abhi The Nomad Gets Down To Business In Austin

Abhi The Nomad doesn't have time to lounge at Barton Springs or get lost in the Greenbelt, because his student visa has his time here limited like a shot clock. Having moved 8 times by the time he was 18, it is no mystery where his name comes from, but his lax indie hip-hop has people guessing where his influences originated. Here on a grad school visa - Abhi is making his rhymes count, and his newly released debut album, Marbled, has the hype building around him for the upcoming SXSW festival. Already signed to Tommy Boy records, Abhi's recognition and appreciation looks only to pick up momentum.
