Drone is an Alternative Hip-Hop producer, songwriter and emcee with a love for the obscure. Born in the Los Angeles suburb of Whittier, California, Drone comes from a family of musicians. Most notably his great aunt; Mexican-American singer and actress Rosita Fernandez of San Antonio, Texas. His father, also a musician, bought Drone his own drum set when he was just two years old. The youngest of four, he would regularly listen to music and watch music videos with his elder siblings, acquiring an eclectic taste in music. His influences range from film composer Danny Elfman, to drummer Neal Pert, to the unique rap styles of Tech N9ne, Kool Keith and Insane Clown Posse.

Drone is currently working on his highly anticipated debut album, Drum Kits & Horror Flicks. Composed entirely by Drone himself, the album’s production features gritty Horror themed Hip-Hop beats with hints of Dub-step and Trap. The lyrical content is intellectual with clever wordplay and an intense delivery containing several references to classic Horror films. Songs like “Live From The Overlook Hotel” and “If These Walls Could Talk” are eerie and somber while other songs like “Pyramids” are aggressive and thought provoking. His latest single,"American Horror Story," reveals how Drone’s dark side emerged when he was young and how that helped him create the unique sound he’s known for today. Drum Kits & Horror Flicks is expected to be released at the end of this year.

Drone made his first rap beat when he was just twelve years old. By age nineteen, he had produced and engineered his first studio album as a founding member of the group Systematic Tragedy. The group would go on to release two more albums on iTunes from 2007 to 2010. During that time, Drone performed at some of Southern California's premier venues such as The Roxy, The Key Club, The Grove of Anaheim and The House of Blues, opening for artists like Tech N9ne, KRS-ONE, Kendrick Lamar, Three 6 Mafia, Twiztid and Kottonmouth Kings. Systematic Tragedy disbanded in 2011 and Drone began his career as a solo artist.

In the summer of 2012, Drone released the first rap version of the song "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster The People which was well received and soon began making noise on YouTube. Later that year, he released a collaboration album called Southwestside with Dallas rapper, Prevalence. In 2012, Drone began producing tracks for his debut album as well as collaborative tracks with fellow independent artists; The Lifted Gifted. In the summer of 2013, Drone toured with The Lifted Gifted, Futuristic and Kutt Calhoun on Strange Music’s “Hot Summer Nights Tour". With the release of Drum Kits & Horror Flicks, Drone hopes to tour nationwide and continue carving his own path as an independent artist.
