Karl Phillips & the Rejects

The last few years has seen Karl support chart topping legends such as Chase & Status, Example and Ella Eyre. To underground heroes like The King Blues, Gentleman’s Dub Club, The Skints, Dub Pistols, Imperial Leisure, The Neville Staple Band, Dreadzone & Alabama 3.

Karl and the band have had radio plays on numerous BBC Introducing shows, including BBC 6 Music, with music videos airing on various television channels.

Headline gigs include The Garage London, O2 Academy and a sell-out EP launch at Camden Barfly. Squeezing in the odd gig in France…. Karl even gained support from the Don’t Flop Rap battle league after taking part in what might be the world’s first ever ‘Guitar Rap Battle!’

Summers are spent in festival mode spreading the Ska/Rap/Punk vibe from Boomtown Fair, The Secret Garden Party, Strawberry Fair, Blissfields and Beautiful Days to as far as Summer Sound Festival in Latvia. Sharing stages with the likes of Bob Geldof, UB40, Wiley, The Subways, Tinchy Stryder, The Feeling, Skepta and Zane Lowe, meaning Karl and The Rejects have been performing non-stop for several years…. and loving every second of it!
