The London-born artist makes a full-time living from his music, manga and merchandise and has even appeared on ITV’s Ninja Warrior UK. He was recently invited into Parliament to speak on behalf of grassroots music venues across the country. Shao Dow has opened for the likes of KRS-One, Ghetts, Stormzy, Tech N9ne, 6LACK, Skepta and more, while his live shows have taken him across the UK, Europe and Asia. A truly unique Fire in the Booth with Charlie Sloth is the jewel in the crown of a plethora of radio shows, including Radio 1, 1xtra and BBC 6 Music.
