Bio: I’m a 20 year-old Hip Hop Artist from Dayton, Ohio. I strive to make music that makes the listener feel good. I produce, record, and engineer my music, which causes me to get the most minimal amount of sleep, but hey I love it. Also, I go to Steak ‘n Shake about 4 times a week.
Top 5 Influences?: I have a ton of influences, but if I had to pick five they’d be Andre 3000, Childish Gambino, Sade, Herbie Hancock, and Flying Lotus. If all the worlds music disappeared and I only had these five left, I honestly couldn’t complain too too much. I like that balance between all of them with the chill and energetic music that’s memorable. One of the bigger things with music for me is that I want it to be timeless and I feel that those that influence me all have that quality.
New Projects?: I drop a new single about every 2 weeks! I just dropped one yesterday with a good friend of mine, Luna, called “Reload”. That’ll be everywhere including spotify and apple music later this week. Also, I’m recording an EP in October so that should be out by November! I’m really excited for it!
What helped you get into music? When I was younger I lived in California because my mom was working with Sheldon Reynolds of Earth Wind & Fire. I was always around her in the studio so I got to see it all. From there I’ve just always enjoyed listening to music and singing and I wanted to learn like 5 instruments. (Of which I’ve learned zero) haha I decided to mess with producing myself when I was a junior or senior in high school so I could make some Flying Lotus type music and I just stuck with it ever since. Now I just like making what speaks to me. If I can’t FEEL the music, then I’m not really vibing with it.
What is one thing you would tell your fans? I would say, I love and appreciate you. I’m thankful that you’re rocking with me and that you relate to the music, and I’m extremely excited to get to perform for you one day! Ya’ll make my days better! also tell your friends to follow me on spotify! haha 2017
Goals for 2017?: My bigger goals for 2017 are to make it back out to California so I can link up with like minded individuals and just be surrounded by that good energy. I also want to be performing at least 3 times a week and getting out and connecting with good people! That’s why I make the music in the first place!
