Give us some background info as to who you are.
I was born June 12, 1991, in San Diego California. Since childhood, I was always involved with music.During my life,I have been to a total of 13 schools, which taught me diversity at an early age which helped shape my music. At the age of 15, I moved to Virginia, which was a whole new world compared to beaches and a palm trees. When I turned 16, I moved to West Virginia and graduated in 2009 being the first graduating class of Washington High. Still focusing on my career I bought recording gear and eventually sold it for studio time landing me to record at Cue Recording, a Grammy award winning studio. Being affiliated with the well known media companies that worked with major recording artist such as Michael Jackson and Madonna helped me master the art of my recording and producing. while perfecting my music, I gained a huge exposure with former indie labels and online radio. From getting a world wide fan base through online radio and media based websites, it helped me reach nearly 3 million music viewers and thousands of fans world wide which landed me to be labeled an “International” Pop/Alternative Artist. Upon the success of my music career, I teamed up with The Owner of 2 Hot 2 Heavy’s media production company, Shawn “DiP” Singh. After teaming up with Shawn and his team, it lead me to get his first FM radio play with the well known Rapper/Radio Host Big -T of DaSouthernBoiHr 89.7FM. Airplay from one of the top college radio stations and promotion from 2 Hot 2 Heavy Productions, which has produced tracks with artist from labels including Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment, and featured recognition from Vibe Magazine.
