Today we’d like to introduce you to FREEAKtheArtist.
Hi FREEAKtheArtist, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
Started back in 2003 in Spring Lake, NC I was in my living room listening to Jay-z the blueprint my stepdad was playing. I’ve always had a love for music and to perform just didn’t know which way I wanted to go about it. Through the years of moving from house to house school to school, I started to confide in music to help me through it all. Around middle school, I met my best friend/business partner DJFlight. Since then, I’ve been on the grind perfecting my craft, even during my enlistment into the US Army, I was still recording and writing. Moved to Colorado and found a studio to record at AML Recording studios in Colorado Springs, Co. I’ve performed multiple shows here in Co, I’ve even been signed and performed in Louisiana as well.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It hasn’t at all it’s been a journey of its own from dealing with self-doubt, faulty managers, faulty producers, etc. Even being signed to my last label was tough due to internal issues within the company affecting my brand and music distro. I’ve stayed true to myself and I’ve had a great support team behind to help keep pushing me forward.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
When I’m not recording music, I’m building race cars and racing. Music has always been my love and main focus but cars and racing will always be there as well. My main focus in racing in the FWD (Front wheel drive) cars for events like IFO, H-day, etc. Right now, I’m working on building and growing my youtube channel right now for my car vlogs.
What makes you happy?
Recording music, building cars, seeing my wife and kids smile and enjoy life.
