Bio

The only way to understand who GFA is as an artist is to understand what music truly means to him. Music is his second nature and his passion; it runs through his veins and goes deeper than love itself. Bringing his life experience into the studio, where he combines it with his unbridled musical zeal, GFA creates music that resonates deeply with emotion and authenticity while exploring genres that include R&B, club music, rock, and, of course, hip-hop. His thoughtful wordplay and captivating flow create lush lyrical portraits that present multiple meanings and engage the listener on multiple levels.

The mentality of GFA’s music is lyrics over beats. In an era where hip-hop has become less lyrically substantive and more focused purely on repetitive beats and catchy hooks, GFA’s lyrics stand solidly on their own; enhanced by the music they are set to rather than reliant upon it.

GFA started rapping at the age of 12 when a stroke of curiosity caused him to give it a try. From the first line that came out of his mouth, he knew that he had stumbled upon the means to truly reach out and express himself to the world. Since that first day, his music has been rooted in what he is feeling and experiencing at any given moment of his life. As a result of this, GFA literally transforms the flow of his thoughts into the flow of his lyrics, finding real life to be a much deeper source of inspiration than fantasy or desire. From a seemingly endless well of experience and emotion GFA has recorded four mixtapes to date, culminating in the creation of From Durham With Love, a showcase of the body of work he has created over the past five years that captures his love of hip-hop and of life. His boundary-crossing love of music has led him to record songs such as 'Dance Dance', a cover of the Fall Out Boy song by the same title, and to begin making efforts to record with a rock band. In addition, plans are in motion to have a live band available to perform at shows and down the line on tours in order to enhance the overall feel of each performance. He is currently working on recording songs for a mixtape hosted by Wade Banner of K97.5 and tentatively slated for release at the end of 2009, and his own mixtape, From Durham With Love, will be available for the start of summer.
