OneWayTicket brings you their video “Sipping”, off the album “Global Warming”!
Based out of Charlotte, NC the essence of true “hip hop” still lives with OneWay Ticket. The name derives from Langston Hughes’ poem “One Way Ticket” which exemplifies a man who travels far in every direction with no intentions on going back home. Never looking back always looking forward serves as the motto of the trio. OneWay Ticket has been cultivating their sound for many years waiting for the perfect opportunity to enter the creative music landscape and now, they have arrived.
The group consists of Tony “LELO” Bowers who is a dynamic producer, musician, vocalist, and rapper. Listening to LELO you can hear him accurately emphasizes his life, paint lyrical pictures, and then slickly imports himself. Tony LELO is currently on tour with Anthony Hamiliton as a backing vocalist. Next up is Brandon “Buddah” Smith described as energetic, enlightening, and abstract. He has been writing lyrics since the age of 12 years old always striving to reach his goal to be an artist who provides great energy to the industry. Lastly, referred to as the unseen member, Tim “MR.SMITH” Smith who provides the canvas for Buddah and Tony LELO to paint on as the group’s producer. Stepping away from the MIC lead him to a passion for engineering and mixing which allows him to begin and finish the groups creative process. As OneWay Ticket continues to build fans every where they perform, you can always count on this group to be original and captivating with every song you hear.
