In The Beginning
I started my career in music fifteen years ago in Peoria, Illinois, after my parents’ divorce took me from an upscale community and into the ‘hood. Thrust into a new environment with new people in a new school with new opportunities, I steadily moved away from nu-metal and industrial rock to focus on rap.
Stepping my Game Up
Realizing that music was more than just a hobby, I invested in a studio, which I continued to upgrade over the years. Over the past decade, this studio not only allowed me to record and produce my own music, but to work with other great musicians, as well; especially after moving to Atlanta to pursue my dreams.
Unfortunately, the Atlanta music scene wasn’t half as promising as it seemed from all the way up north in Illinois, but I’ve enjoyed playing shows, making music, and working with other independent artists from California, Georgia, Virginia, Illinois, Sweden, and even Iran.
Outside of Music
I’d love to tell you my life revolves solely around music, but while it certainly plays a huge role in it, there are other passions I’m currently pursuing. I love animals, collect retro-video games, and might be slightly obsessed with zombie films, comedy, hiking, and working out.
Since I spend so much time around the computer making music and playing video games anyway, I also decided to go back to school to major in computer science. The Spanish and Calculus are kicking my ass, but my experience thus far in life has taught me that there are far worse things to grapple with than second languages and math.
The Road Ahead
Needless to say, it’s been one hell of a journey, but it ain’t over yet. I look forward to connecting with old fans and new, growing my audience, and working with more artists on the international music scene.
