Ceschi (pronounced chess-key) Ramos has been in a LOT of bands including psych-rock-jazz-hip hop fusion outfit Anonymous Inc., the hardcore metal band Dead By Wednesday and his lo-fi synth pop group w/ producers Blue Sky Black Death called Deadpan Darling. They are all viable projects steeped in drastically different traditions, yet surprisingly, no single band or combination of these projects captures his versatility so well as the one man band himself, Ceschi. Drawing from the experience of these eclectic groups, as a solo artist, Ceschi has composed three album length exercises in tight wire genre mixing, including 2004's promising debut Fake Flowers, the beloved underground classic They Hate Francisco False (2006) and the most seamless of his high concept albums The One Man Band Broke Up (2010). His live show is a whirlwind performance of rapping, singing and guitar that comfortably navigates through hard hitting Hip Hop, playful Folk ditties and even Classical and Spanish music. Ceschi's growing following has enabled him to travel worldwide on tours through the US, Canada, Europe, Australia and Asia. In 2008 he added record label owner/founder to his already diverse collection of hats when he and brother/collaborator David Ramos started Fake Four Inc. The label has seen a meteoric rise in popularity, now home to indie hip hop favorites Astronautalis, Awol One, Busdriver, Blue Sky Black Death & Sole.
