Many find the name Blitzkrieg confusing or difficult to pronounce. However, Blitz views it as a living tribute to his friend Robby (whom chose the Mc’s name). In 2003 Robby was the unfortunate victim of a triple homicide in Blitz’s hometown of Toronto. Blitz carries the name as a badge of honour and in memory of his lost friend.
The old saying “music speaks for itself” truly applies to Blitz. Without any money, connections, or record deal this artist has toured the world promoting his music, and gaining an aggressive street buzz through his vicious punch lines / intellectual lyrics.
UK fans were first introduced to Blitz in 2001 when his music was featured on Punjabi Mc’s online radio show “60 Minutes of Desi”. Since than, Blitzkrieg has received critical acclaim from the likes of Marky Mark (Head of Music BBC Asian Network), Adil Ray, Bobby Friction & Nihal (Radio 1), and many others.
On the strength of his own talent, Blitz has collaborated with artists such as: Mentor Kolektiv, Tigerstyle, Bikram Singh, Punjabi Hit Squad, and Sona Family. His continuous grind and work ethic has resulted in performances at Glastonbury (2005), various mela’s, Sun kissed festival, Project Puerto Rico, as well as international licensing agreements with Universal Music and Times Music India.
He is currently promoting his 2nd album Get Blitz which is the followup to his highly successful 2007 CD The Rhymebook.
