I am from the small town of York in Pennsylvania. I started getting into music in grade school. I grew up surrounded in the arts. My mother is a dance teacher, so from the age of three I was hanging out at her dance studio learning about music. In middle school I gave up music and pretty much everything besides dance, and even that I sheltered from my friendsit just wasnt cool for a teenage boy to do that kind of stuff when I was growing up. I truly didnt start finding my passion for music again until late in my high school career. I started rapping after I graduated and went through a serious depression, one where I tried to end my life. I fell in love with it. A way to express myself and my beliefs without having to censor myself.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Do it because you love it. Dont do it for any other reason and dont ever give up on your dreams. It may seem impossible and it may seem far off, but its not. If you are truly passionate about what you do and you work for it, no matter if people tell you its not realistic, you WILL succeed. Everything worth having takes time. Even if you never make it out of your basementdo it because you love it and never give up on the music.
I needed an outlet for my anger and depression and the guitar wasn't cutting it. Being able to throw on a hardcore rap instrumental and let loose was my therapy. I started in the basement of my parents home and now I live in Atlanta. My music style has changed and will continue to do so as I grow. It's been ten years and I'm just getting started.
I play live to any venue that will have me. Best memories come from those at home performances for friends and family.
