Biography

THE UNKNOWN
Kristopher “Anonamys” Noel and Darrell “Namliss” Ramey better known as "THE UNKNOWN” are two talents bringing inspirational music to the masses from a military prospective. They passionately and boldly combine scripture and rhymes to unveil the mystery of the gospel.

Kristopher Noel a.k.a. Anonamys was born in Fort Worth, Texas. At the age of seven, he began to take piano lessons from his grandmother. The piano would open up the door to other instruments such as the drums and guitar. He was intrigued by the idea of constructing his own musical compositions and began to make hip-hop beats in his early teens. As he honed his skills, he also became fascinated with the lyrical content of hip-hop. After high school, Kristopher became heavily involved in the rap scene. Although he started building up recognition and fame amongst his peers, he could not shake the fact that the life he lived was opposite to that of his upbringing. He enjoyed listening to Christian artists like LeCrae and Trip Lee, but could never see himself as a Christian rapper. Struggling with the signs from God, Kristopher realized he could no longer ignore the calling on his life and decided to do Christian rap.

Darrell Ramey a.ka. Namliss was born in Boston, MA. The hip-hop culture had a huge influence on Darrell. His first album was Big Daddy Kane, which he memorized in its entirety. As he watched the rap battles on the corners of Boston, he was for certain he was meant to go the B-Boy route. After leaving college, he joined the military where he met a young man at Eielson Air Force base who also glorified God through music. One meeting and fifteen songs later, the two joined forces to form "THE UNKNOWN”; and have decided that they will forever bless The Name of Jesus Christ with what they have dubbed “Hip-Hop Praise and Worship music.”

The group made their mark while stationed in Fairbanks, Alaska in 2008. Since then, THE UNKNOWN traveled around the country doing concerts for hundreds of listeners. After capturing the ears of many souls, the group released their first independent solo project OPERATION: Enduring Praise in 2009, which included "Let's Walk", "Remain Namliss" and “Remain Anonamys." "These songs were born out of what we’ve experienced over the past couple of years, of spiritually,” says Kristopher.

“We've had to learn some very difficult lessons about who God is and who we are...we really felt Him at work in our lives, in those very real moments when you feel you are going around in circles and cannot find Him at all. I think we have just tried to be honest about what that darkness feels like and yet make it clear that "the Light always wins," says Darrell.

Instantly, he who has ears is ushered to a place of reverence, appreciation and adoration for...The Only One Worthy to be Known...A place UnKnown to the worldly...We will take you there. THE UNKNOWN!

THE UNKNOWN is sure to be a group to be reckoned with!
