Bio

Shaamar "S" Gandy Co-CEO of Phocused Records born Sptember, 9th 1984 was rasied in Woodlyn, Pa. At a young age He would find ways to entertain himself and others which has benefited him to this day. Shaamar always had a lot on his mind and his Nana bought him a diary to help him express his feelings and emotions. Those diary entries soon became poems which turned into lyrics for songs. Shaamar's musical Influence was his Aunt Teki. She sung in a band and would take him to rehersal when he was still in pampers. He ended up recording his first song at the age of 11 with one of the band members Rick Starr whose son is now signed to Atlantic Records. Due to financial issues his family couldn't afford to help him pursue his dream as adolescent. With him slowly falling victim to the street mentality, below average grades and his Nana's lack of energy due to age, she decided to relocate him to Media, PA.
In the early 2000’s he linked up with John “Johnny Rock” Durnell Jr. and Mark “Doe Boy” Stillis and few other artist would have ciphers every time they had an opportunity. Soon enough that hobby started to catch the ears of friends and family which gave them the push to move forward and test the waters in professional recording. In 2004 they recorded their first project 20/20 vision under the Phocused Records with various artists from the Delaware County area. The project generated a following that caught the attention of a young producer Jahlil Beats who has recently done production for Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, P. Diddy, T.i and a list of well known artist. Shaamar still has great friendship with Jahlil Beats as well as a strong business relationship. With the absence of the business mind in the operation Shaamar decided to take a back seat on making music to play a pivotal role in the business side due to his gift to network and being very business savvy.
In 2008 Shaamar realized his passion from music wasn’t the same. With networking, marketing, business plans, management, proposals and playing a one man band on the business side he had a void that needed to be filled. He started recording music again and the business aspect seemed like pleasure and less work. Shaamar, Johnny and Mark than Created the incredible trio you know as the “Loyalty Boys”. With Shaamar’s unique, witty yet catchy approach to making music blends well with the Mark and Johnny’s style and way with words. If you listen to Shaamar’s verses you will run the song back to see if he really just that. He’s the kind of artist that loves to break things down for people to show off how good he is in his craft but in a humble manner. It only takes one word to describe Shaamar “S” Gandy and that’s PHOCUSED.
