Biography

Actual People is a collective of artistic, creative people who have been influenced by a wide range of music and life experiences, and seek to convey their thoughts and ideas through the mediums in which they are well-versed. This ensemble of musicians formed on the grounds of HipHop between five guys with different, yet similar, musical backgrounds. They aim to affect their listeners positively, on a personal level, to inspire & influence change throughout the world by speaking about many common frustrations of modern society over heavy, encompassing instrumentation. The music is HipHop at its core, but contains elements of Metal/Rock & Electronic music, as well as touches of influence from Blues & Jazz.

There are five members in the band. Corey Profumo aka CJ Prof is the MC/Frontman. Prof, as many call him, grew up listening to a variety of genres of music due to his father's passion for music, but fell in love with HipHop at a young age & lyrics always remained his main focus of study. Influenced by many different styles of music ranging from HipHop artists such as De La Soul, LL Cool J, Outkast, Atmosphere and Aesop Rock to Rock artists like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine, Prof has molded his own style of delivering his thoughts, opinions, & techniques of blending with the instrumentation provided by his band mates.
