CAZWELL has had over 10 million combined video views on Vevo / You Tube and has managed over 1 Million download / streams of his independently-released music. From becoming a You Tube sensation after a million people viewed the ridiculously popular and oft-imitated "Ice Cream Truck" music video in a single week, to producing a steady flow of singles and videos that capture his engaging charisma, self-effacing humor and personality, Cazwell has earned credibility on and off the dance floor with a slew of anthemic and danceable hip hop tracks including "Rice & Beans," the disco-sampled "All Over Your Face" and Courtney Love's personal favorite, "I Seen Beyoncé At Burger King." Cazwell's "Get My Money Back" (from his debut full length, Watch My Mouth) was recently used for an HBO's ad campaign for Eastbound and Down. He has collaborated with numerous artists including Peppermint, Peaches, Manila Luzon, Yvie Oddlly, Amanda Lepore, Colton Ford, Cherie Lily, Luciana, Big Dipper, MC Lyte, Chris Willis and Psyko Punkz. Cazwell was also a featured artist on the True Colors Tour with Margaret Cho, Cyndi Lauper, Deborah Harry, Rufus Wainwright, Rosie O'Donnell and Indigo Girls.
