Tell us a little about yourself?
Well, I’m from York, South Carolina, but I grew up in Kings Mountain,NC I played baseball and basketball as a kid, and I also started making music at the age of 16. At first, I used to record on SoundCloud with a group called NWB&RNOG, but as I got older, I realized I wanted better sound quality, so I started investing my money in studio time so I could really find my sound. It turns out, though, that I’m very versatile.When it comes to music, I’m not only gifted, but I also drive trucks for a living. It’s my bread and butter, and it’s the reason I’m able to invest in my music career. I believe truckers are sometimes overlooked for what we do, and all we want is a little thank you and respect.
How did you come up with your artist name?
