Bushwalla - not a 1990s cover band

I was recently at the Mint in LA watching a performance by the Stone Foxes, one of my favorite bands out of the Bay Area. While there, I saw a flyer for the show the next day....featuring something called 'BushWalla'. As a child of the 1990s, I of course assumed this was the name of a 1990s rock cover band...but apparently it isn't. In fact, it's a really cool indie hip hop/soul/rock artist. Check out this video:

He's apparently even friends with Jason Mraz, who joined him onstage during the Mint show...

Pretty cool stuff. With a name like 'Bushwalla', I wasn't expecting it to be anything OTHER than a tribute act.
