I'm a reformed old school rapper with a rock and roll past. My music is intended to awaken consciousness in our communities. I'm inspired by brass and percussion but I embrace the digital influence."words mean everythin"

Biography

I started my musical journey at the age of 15. 3 friends and I went to a rock show in high school, after the show we all looked at each other and agreed, we could do that. The next day we bought instruments at a local pawnshop trading old video games and boomboxes. A year later we were playing local clubs and every talent show and battle of the bands we could find in Texas. We played in Midland, Odessa, San Angelo, San Antonio, and every club that would let us in near Austin. We ventured off to west Texas and it didn't go further from there.
I got back to Austin with plenty of experience in the studio and once again said, I could do that. I moved back in with my parents and saved up for everything I needed to get a studio started and start trying to record myself. 2 friends and I got a place in downtown Austin and started recording ourselves and anybody that could pay.
I've been at it ever since. I've had my opportunities and I've even ventured into other parts of the industry but music is it for me! I'll always do it and do it for the ones who can't do for themselves!
