I've spent my life on a reservation in the upper peninsula of Michigan. This is where my term, "rez" comes from. I spent my time on a lot of dreams but, music has been the longest lasting one. I did YouTube for a bit, so I have basic editing skills. I've listened to music to help me through a lot in life so that's when I decided to make it. Chester Bennington, Lil Peep, and XXXTENTACION have all passed and inspired me in different ways to continue music. My grandpa passed and Linkin Park's music helped me, when Chester passed X helped me, and both X and Peep helped me a lot and then they passed. I've decided that I want to continue on and try to help people like they helped me.
I created my SoundCloud account in November, 2017. After a YouTube dream died off for a music one, I looked for things to make music on. I found SoundTrap and started releasing short, 30 second long, basic tracks. Then I made my first real track, Don't Go. A project was lost that was originally titled "The Lines Project," but it has been renamed to "The Beats Inside My Head." I then went into more types of music on my own and started making more kinds. Hip-hop tracks like "Sometimes" and "i hate me and you should too." Then alternative tracks like "In The End" and "Lost, Finding The Way." Lots more music is on the way and I have worked with artists like 2can and my home's own R.I.P. Ghost.
I haven't performed as my persona, Gavin Parished, yet. I've performed at talent shows at my school. Using the Pokemon Theme Song as a joke, then the next year singing What I've Done by Linkin Park.
I have many influences. XXXTENTACION has showed me a lot of music and I'm heavily inspired by him. Guitar and electro-pop sounds come from Linkin Park. My rapping is inspired by Eminem and Denzel Curry.
At the moment, I use my computer and the software, Soundtrap to make my music. I use a t.bone brand microphone and equipment.
My favorite musical artists include XXXTENTACION, Linkin Park, Eminem, Denzel Curry, Ski Mask The Slump God, The Weeknd, Travis Scott, and Starset.
