How have your life experiences influenced your music?
I put my heart and soul into my music. When I create I relax, open up, and let my experience flow freely.
I had a difficult childhood riddled with family trauma. Mental illness, death, psychological, verbal and physical abuse were present in my life for as long as I can remember. Simultaneously I grew up around very interesting people. Seeing a lot of what the world has to offer at a young age.
As I grew things changed and I turned to a rougher path, turning to the street and older mentors who didn't have my best interest. Around 19 everything blew up for me. I found rock bottom, addicted to Xanax and Vyvanse I had a number of my friends go to jail, one close friend OD. No job, girlfriend left me as well as a lot of people around me.
I had been making my own music for about 3 years at that point, one night I decided I needed to change my reality. I booked a trip to Vancouver that night, left 2 weeks later and moved to Vancouver a month after that. I began a soul finding journey which led me down the most insane, blissful, creative, chaotic, profound journey one could ask for. I remembered who I was and I found my people.
As I found myself I found my sound. I went clean and started prioritizing different things. I built myself into a man and I Created a body of work.
Now I'm here, Complete and ready to show the world what I am.
