What helped you get into music? Listening to my adopted father (Todd Rundgren) produce records on school nights. Rapping Shakespearean Sonnets in HighSchool and learning to write my own iambic pentameter rhymes. 23-hour lockdown at age 17 freestyling with other juvenile felons through the jail cell vents. Obsessing over the genius of movie score music and the power of it to translate story
What is one thing you would tell your fans? See me for who I am now after learning from my past mistakes.
What are your biggest goals for 2017? Debut Hip Hop album release August 18th, (A Vignette) 2 days before my first-ever Hip Hop show August 20th (Coast2CoastLive—Hawaii Edition).
