I decided to begin working on music, I was in 7th grade, I was writing lyrics by myself in my room and just brainstorming concepts, I wanted to create something flooring and crazy something beyond everything I'd heard before. I was very scared to speak about it with many people, for fear of being mocked, called stupid, or just laughing. But a few months later I met a good friend of mine at the time and we came together and formed a group called "Redefine Muzik".
We were just writing and making bad songs all the time because it was summer and we were having fun, then I brought another friend of mine in. It was us 3 creating, but soon when 8th grade began it slowly became just me and the friend I brought in. It was us 2, because we just drifted apart as friends, and that's when my view on this music changed, I was making it too much of a game not realizing how much in love I was with it. It soon became part of me, I did something everyday, from writing to practicing the vocals I was becoming seriously involved, and before I knew it, I had an undeniable talent that I had to refine and turn into something serious.
I began working to buy equipment to record with, now I have a AT2020 Mic, a M-Audio FastTrack, a Mic stand, and a XLR. I'm still looking to get more, because I now know this is my talent and I have no excuse to let that go to waste, that is never ever something I will do. I found the courage to be different, I wasn't like the other kids surrounding me, I was different, I wasn't good at any sports, I couldn't play Basketball, Football, Soccer, you name it, I wasn't strong in the sports area. I had things that not many people around me did, I was different, at first I was afraid to share and stand out, but I did and now I'm proud to be that way.
