Putting a great focus on faith, perseverance, and “dope lyrics”, Toobe Fresco aims to inspire current fans and generations to come. Proving that if a young kid growing up in inner-city Cleveland can find his voice through the loud noise of violence, poverty, and few positive role models to look up to, there is truly no such thing as limitations on a person’s growth and destiny.

Biography

Passion, faith, talent, and soul – this is the full embodiment of Cleveland, Ohio’s Hip Hop Soul artist Toobe Fresco. Developing an everlasting passion for the art at the young age of 10 years old, Toobe aims to be a vessel, inspiring others through his heartfelt lyricism, catchy Hip Hop feels, and soulful grooves to pursue their own unique, God-given talents and passions.

Taking creative inspiration from greats such as Kanye West, Prince, and Stevie Wonder, Toobe bends the rules of Hip Hop, bringing soulful production and songwriting together with catchy, modern day schemes and cadences leaving the listener yearning to hear more. A connoisseur of classic Hip Hop and 70’s soul music, this style isn’t new to Fresco, a virtuoso who’s been playing piano since the age of sixteen and handling mostly all production, recording, and engineering himself since the age of eighteen.

Working in house on over ten projects isn’t an easy feat. In October 2016, Toobe partnered up with his college buddies, guitarist D’Gregory Richmond, drummer Gawuan Williams, bassist Pearce Gronek, and his longtime DJ Cooley High, and formed his new touring band “The Living Sound”, who he finished a year long string of dates with in 2017, less than a year after their conception. Embarking on their first official tour in spring of 2018, Toobe Fresco and The Living Sound are preparing to bring an all new presence to the idea of Hip Hop concerts, with energy in the likes of Cleveland’s own Machine Gun Kelly and the flare and finesse of soul legends Sly and the Family Stone.

Putting a great focus on faith, perseverance, and “dope lyrics”, Toobe Fresco aims to inspire current fans and generations to come. Proving that if a young kid growing up in inner-city Cleveland can find his voice through the loud noise of violence, poverty, and few positive role models to look up to, there is truly no such thing as limitations on a person’s growth and destiny.
