Epiphany

Raised in Pine Bluff, Epiphany — born Chane Morrow — is a graduate of Stanford University, where he studied mechanical engineering. But around age 21, he started rapping, and for the past decade he’s honed his skills with a debut album eight years ago, a string of mixtapes and single releases, and live performances all over the Southern United States. His hip-hop shows are extremely professional and polished — he’s performed hundreds of times in the last several years, and it shows — and they even feature a full live band as often as his bandmates are available. He also hosts hip-hop events, parties and shows of all types (The Peabody Rooftop Party and The Chill Party series in Little Rock, for example). While his shows feature many of his popular originals, Epiphany also covers a wide variety of popular urban hits and classics, many led by his talented back-up singers. Epiphany has opened for such international hip-hop stars as TI, Snoop Dogg, 8Ball & MJG, and Ne-Yo, and he has performed at legendary venues such as Fayetteville’s George’s Majestic Lounge, University of Arkansas’ Barnhill Arena (former home of the 1994 national championship Razorback basketball team), as well as at Little Rock’s Revolution Music Room and Juanita’s.
