Thomas Calloway

This website offers some general informations about Gnarls Barkley and what bands he has been in.

This is a great website to get a feel for Gnarls Barkley’s unique style.

One of the main reasons I like Gnarls Barkley’s music is because his hip-hop style is poetic, uplifting and positive. This website has the lyrics to some of his songs

I originally discovered Thomas Calloway when listening to some underground hip-hop music that my older brother introduced to me called “Goodie Mobb” when I was in middle school. At that time Calloway’s M.C (master of ceremonies) name was Cee Low green. Like many artists his M.C name has changed a few times throughout his career. When listening to his music I was initially drawn to his raw, inspiring and soulful poetic style. It was refreshing to listen to a hip-hop artist that had catchy beats along with lyrics of a positive nature. I also like how he has a raw poetic style in his music but you can tell by listening to his lyrics that he also does not take himself that seriously. I seem to be drawn to deeper lyrics but it can be kinda a turn of for me when lyrics are so serious and there is no playfulness or lightness within them. I find that Calloway’s style is a fine mesh of seriousness and lightness.
