Dr. Awkward (aka Joshua Watson) is a Nerd Hip Hop artist hailing from San Diego, CA with topics ranging from Anime to Video Games, Comic Books, and more. Since his debut in 2009, Dr. Awkward has become a staple at conventions all over the world. His first album, Unlimited, was released in 2010. The album bridged the gap between nerd music and mainstream hip hop. Over the next three years, Doc Awk solidified his spot as one of the most exciting young musicians in Hip Hop. Early last year his The Last of Us inspired song, "Echoes" grabbed the attention of the video game giants Naughty Dog and Playstation. Dr. Awkward's music has been featured on NPR, MTV, Wired Magazine, Zelda Informer, NerdReactor, GeekDad, and local publications all over the world!
In the ten years that have followed his debut release, the Laptop EP, Lars has independently produced and released three other solo full-length albums, four EPs, and a number of mixtapes.
He has collaborated with KRS-One, mentored and helped develop the career of fellow Stanford alum K.Flay (with whom he collaborated on the 2009 Single and Famous EP), opened for Nas and Snoop Dogg, and played multiple summers on the Vans Warped Tour. He has also headlined club shows across the US and in Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.
Lars has spoken and presented at two different TEDx conferences, performed at Carnegie Hall with a live string section (at Scholastic’s 2012 Art and Writing Awards – where he debuted the video for his song, “Flow Like Poe,” which is the lead single on his 2012 Edgar Allan Poe EP).

“I’ve never been the cool one. I’m just good at rapping so they let me bend the rules some.”
Tribe One is a rapper from Atlanta, Georgia who writes smart, personal and emotional songs about things like comic books and video games. He’s a bit of a nerd and he knows it. Revels in it, in fact. Having worked as a public librarian for eight years before making the jump to rapping full time, he is acutely aware that he is on something of a non-traditional path to rap stardom. But it’s exactly this nonchalance...
Professor Shyguy's music can be best described as; high energy, chiptune-electro-rocking, 8-bit, epically vocalized, highly danceable, theatrical nerd-pop. Singing 50% about video games and the other 50% is anything from Space/Time to English Language gymnastics. His performance consists of singing, playing guitar, keyboards, and drums, sometimes three of those things at the same time.
