OPLIAM is Liam McDonald, a young up and coming American Indian activist who plays the guitar and makes radical Native hip hop music. He travels and plays acoustic folk sets at music festivals, in addition to working with non-profit organizations to fight for protection of the Great Lakes. The release of his new album, 4.4.4, chronicles his change in perception as well as ability to jump the boundaries of genres and create sounds for a hungry generation. His music has bits of sadness and struggle, mixed with inspirational uplifting songs of change. The story told is one of a young warrior growing up and learning the difference between things worth fighting for, while maintaining an innocent child like spirit.
