How old are and where are you from?

Have your surroundings shaped you in a creative sense, and in what way?
My surroundings have definitely shaped me in a creative sense, I’ve always been around music, my aunt would always play metal and rock music, my dad would always play rap, so hearing both of those almost 24/7 inspired me heavily. Now last year I was living in a town that wasn’t the safest, I was barely home and constantly on the streets and that changed me and hardened me, you can definitely see that my sound changed drastically during the time I was staying in that town
Can you tell me a little bit about XXIX Club? And how you joined?
XXIX club is my family, The Broken Anarchy. We are all roughly the same age, with shared interests, our goal is to stand out from the rest as a collective and to share our creativity and energy with the rest of the world, I was in a group chat with one of the leaders of XXIX, Whisper The Coke God, and he told me he really messed with my sound and style and that he would like me to join his collective, I met another leader IHATEPVRPL and we instantly clicked, and here I am today with my brothers

What made you start making music?
I’ve always had a love for music, my sophomore year in high school I fell in love with the underground scene. Starting off with artists such as Yung Van, 6dogs, lilhawkboy, ITSOKTOCRY, etc. I was in a deep depression and was struggling with an insane amount of anxiety when I decided that I was going to make my own music. One weekend in the summer of 2017 I stayed up late every night, found 5 beats on Youtube that I fell in love with, and wrote, recorded, mixed and mastered my first EP “Zero Friends”
Who are your biggest influences?
My biggest influences are Members Only, GothBoiClique, Seshollowwaterboyz, and Raider Klan, my sound is heavily influenced by each one of these groups
What’s your favorite song at the moment?

What keeps you going? How you doing mentally?
The thing that keeps me going are my supporters, friends, and family. They fuel me with positivity and I will forever be grateful for them. Mentally I am at my best I have ever been, I am motivated now more than ever to live life day after next and to make music passionately.
You recently dropped a track titled ‘Kill Me’ can you tell me how that was put together?
I’ve been wanting to make a song with my friend Qro for a while now and I had been having a series of panic attacks recently so I decided to make a song to vent my feelings out, so I found a beat, wrote down what was on my mind, recorded, sent it to Qro, and when he sent it back I was geeked, I knew it would be a classic
How would you describe your style?
My style is unique, I don’t know how to put it in words, I would say I have an emo-grunge-dark style of music.

Outside of music, what keeps you busy?
Outside of music I hang out with friends, play video games, and sleep as much as I can, but most of the day is spent on music
