Uggish began his musical journey as one half of Bi-Polar Bear. Over the span of a decade the group released three albums, traveled the country headlining legendary venues like the Mercury Lounge NYC, topped college radio charts, broadcasted live performances on stations such as Radio K Minneapolis and shared stages with countless rappers from underground successes such as Brother Ali to mainstream legends like Snoop Dogg. Their albums were released by Brooklyn based Indie label Modern Shark and garnered additional support from Sage Francis’ led Strange Famous Records. As a producer, Uggish music has been featured in SXSW award winning films, on ABC/ESPN, in Kmart ads, and more. In 2020, Uggish recorded the self-produced/written/recorded debut solo album “…and Now to Learn to Fish” including the stand out single “Ringo”. Two years late an entirely instrumental follow up album titled “…and Now to Learn to Fish II” was released. Intentionally instrumental from the get go, “Fish II” includes a plethora of musical progressions, melodic layers and vocal samples.
