Jarv Dee on Beacon Hill and Culture Fest 3


As the weather gets warmer the mind begins to wander, reminiscing on the stacked, daytime lineups from last year’s spring and summer months. Get ready to get out of your winter hibernation of basement shows and stale, cigarette scented coats with the upcoming Culture Fest 3, arriving at Beacon Arts on March 24. A full day featuring musicians, local fashion forces, live art, spoken word artists and a plethora of vendors. In preparation for this year’s showcase, I spoke with rapper and hip-hop artist Jarv Dee to get his story and what’s next.

A local of Beacon Hill himself, Jarv Dee’s Seattle roots run deep. It’s the connections he made in the city that continue to intertwine with his current projects. Up next is the collaborative project Kingdom Crumbs, a group effort resulting in a compilation of tracks recorded over the past several years. It’s a more experimental approach for Jarv Dee.
