The Knotz have performed at over 300 venues in the past five years and supported several major acts including Chamillionaire, Common, The Roots, Busta Rhymes, Talib Kweli, Ja Rule, Papoose, MF Doom, Rahzel, Immortal Technique, J-Hood, and Fruit Kwan (Grave Diggaz).
The three blood brothers that make up the group Knotz are on a personal mission to revive the ailing hip-hop scene. Their energy-packed performances blend conscious lyricism and crowd participation to set their live show apart from the hip-hop fray. Colleges, universities, and commercial venues agree that this group is something special to see live.
The Independent Artist Registry named Knotz the 2007 "IndiE Award" winner for Independent Artist of the Year. Several magazines and industry source books such as The Music Phone Book, Mic Magazine, and An'R Magazine in Australia featured Knotz in 2007.
Two Thousand and Eight started with a bang with the group showcasing at the Millennium Music Conference 12 (MMC12) in Harrisburg, PA in February. The Knotz were selected as a FINALIST for "Best Duo/Group" for the 2008 Central PA Hip-Hop Awards. Members of the Independent Artist Company (IAC) also nominated their song "The Bounce" for the prestigious IAIA 2008 Golden Kayak Award for "Best Hip Hop/Rap Song."
You can find feature articles on Knotz in the January-2008 issue of Jenesis Magazine, the February 22, 2008 issue of Sharp Magazine (Pocono Record), and in the upcoming April-2008 issue of Lyricist Magazine.
Supported by a professional artist manager, business manager, and publicist, the Knotz team makes it easy for promoters to book a professional show. Venues can also count on Knotz to show up on time and never cause a disturbance at their school or place of business.
