Im in two bands right now. Fort Mysery is a rap duo that I produce and rap in under the alias Old Man Scuttle. I make heavy beats, and the subject matter is about being drunk, or high, but most likely both. The live performances arent a typical rap show, its filled with plentiful light shows and visual distractions. Old Man Scuttle isnt just a name, hes a person on stage, dressed like an old man with a old man halloween mask on.
THE CREATIVE COMMON WEALTH is a side project I started after I got sick of being stereotyped as a rapper. So, I started incorporating live keyboards run through guitar pedals, live drums, live bass, creepy samples, ect. I also appear as Old Man Scuttle as well on stage when with the common wealth. The show mostly consists of me on the keyboard while spitting flow, which is reallly hard by the way, and john friend on the key board and samplers. Im still looking for a drummer and bassist and guitar player, but for now I just record all of that by myself.
I learned piano at 13
I learned drums at 12
I never have taken any formal bass guitar, harmonica, or tribal drum lessons, but I can definetely rock the socks off of them.
Computer, AKG Compressor, Shure dynamics, Yamaha keyboards as well as garage sale keyboards. I love them.
Im constently listening to my own music, its an all day thing. I wish I had the time to list off some of my favorite cds, but you dont need to know that unless you wanna talk to me about bands that I enjoy.
Again, Im constently listening to my own music, its an all day thing. I wish I had the time to list off some of my favorite cds, but you dont need to know that unless you wanna talk to me about bands that I enjoy.
Anyone that is in the music for the love of making music. Anyone who loves music not only for the sounds, but for the people.
It switchs from song to song depending on who is working on the song with me. H 2 the Dub (second half of Fort Mysery), when Im with him its all about big beats with mad flow. When Im with a guitarist, sometimes I just like to do accoustic stuff and rap and hit the harmonica or the congas. If Im with a drummer, I like to do some more jam band stuff. And dont think I dont get down with heavy extreme musik, cuz I do.
:) Live life, spread love, smile.
