A native of Lebanon, Pennsylvania, AWW-SHUCKS spent his early adult years in the military living in San Diego, California for 5 years until returning back to Pennsylvania. Growing up he was forced into music by his parents by learning how to play the trumpet and trombone at an early age until his teenage years. His father was an avid jazz and blues listener and he grew up listening to it as well. He was then introduced to dance music by his sister around 1999 (at only 11 years old!!). He was sucked into it immediately. It was a totally different form of playing music to him. You could actually CONTROL the music.
He first got his hands on Fruity Loops at the age of 14 and didn't know one thing about producing but didn't care and did it anyhow. During his high school years he went to his first "house party" where there was a DJ, his first encounter with a live DJ. He went to the party to socialize and mingle, but ended up just watching the DJ and being mesmerized by him. Right at that moment he knew he wanted to become a DJ.
Being the broke high school student that he was, and parents not wanting him to get into the scene of DJ'ing, he had no money to buy his own equipment. Once he saved up enough money while in the military he bought his first pieces of equipment and the rest was history. Being exposed to almost every different type of lifestyle that is common within America from being in the military, his musical capabilities grew exponentially. He never leaves anybody out when he DJ's. You like down-south hip hop? He's got it covered. You like west coast hip hop? He's got it covered. Dance, blues, crunk, twerk, trap, pop, you name it.. He's got you covered. All while fluidly blending everything together so you won't stop dancing.
