BUNKS is an acronym: Bringing Unmatched Noise Knowledge and Sound.
Joshua aka J.Smo and Joshua aka J.Gro have been partners in crime since the tender of age of 10 when they met at Hillsboro Elementary School outside of Manchester, Tennessee.
In 1999 the duo began producing and releasing music as BUNKS. After C Bret Campbell of Small Barn Sound allowed these creative types access to his studio; nothing was able to stop their passion for creating their true school influenced style of Hip Hop.
Both fathers of multiple children, Joshua and Joshua have released several albums and mixtapes over their years as well as producing and appearing on other projects from artists in the Middle Tennessee Hip Hop scene.
Starting in 2007, BUNKS began actively performing shows in Mid-TN, specifically Tullahoma, Manchester, Murfreesboro, and Nashville.
In 2009, BUNKS placed 3rd in BoroParty.com’s Battle of the Bands and was chosen for the Murfreesboro Pulse‘s Artist Showcase with NIMA Award winners Streetlight Allstars.
In 2013 they went on their first tour through the Eastern United States with Sactown veteran Mr. P Chill and 2013 SAMMIE Turntablist of the Year, Mike Colossal. In 2014, J.Smo hit the road with Mr. P Chill and Bay Area’s DJ Uppercutz for the At It Again Tour which hit 12 cities in 13 days during February 2014.
