Biography

Backroad is comprised of two Kentucky artists that go by the name of, Smallz and Fentone, aka Don Fentoni. Smallz is a Song Writer/Producer that resides in Lexington, KY. He is responsible for the majority of the production work on Backroad's debut album, Take Notes, and sophomore album, Motivated To Win. He also wrote all of his own lyrics for both albums. Fentone resides in Louisville, KY and came into Backroad as a Song Writer, but has begun Producing as well. He created the beats for Bonedaddydat, Hustle Harder, and How It Came To Be on Motivated To Win. Just like Smallz, Fentone writes 100% of his lyrics, and is responsible for writing the majority of the hooks on Take Notes and Motivated To Win.

Smallz and Fentone originally got together after free styling on a few random occasions. Smallz invited Fentone to his in home studio, and the two began creating their first album, Take Notes. It began as a "just for fun" ordeal, and quickly blossomed into what is now Backroad after the tracks generated a major buzz among friends.
