Welcome to the Church of the High Priest

Spreading the love from the Deep South… of England, Folkestone twinned with Alabama, the High Priest with comedy and music wants to touch you deep inside.

The High Priest is an uncompromising comedian and musician with very outspoken views on the social and political landscape and likes to exercise his freedom of speech. A producer and writer of over 14 albums since his first release entitled ‘Picture That’ in the year 2000 by Some Bizzare, whilst being managed by the infamous Stevo Pierce, received critical acclaim across the board.

Currently the High Priest is working on two albums. A comedy album titled “One man’s comedy is another man’s terrorism”, and a serious political music album titled “Death by a thousand cuts”. Both will be released late 2015 or early 2016.

In 2014 the Mirror newspaper printed one of The High Priest’s jokes in the top 100 jokes of that year at the Edinburgh festival. Number 95. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/top-100-jokes-edinburgh-fringe-4075470

Reviews

“(The High Priest is)… Like an x-rated musical version of, ‘Have I Got News For You’.”
Jim Ody – Room Thirteen

“The Bastard son of Bob Dylan, Bill Hicks and Eminem.”
MOJO Magazine

“Eminem meets Dylan on literate rapping debut from young British beatnik. The High Priest is a smart young man who’s latched on to the idea that Dylan’s Subterranean Homesick Blues was the first rap record.”
