Adrian Dones

I started making music when I was at the young age of 13 when my friends got together and started rapping.

Matthew Waring

Growing up, when we hit tough times — which was naturally every two weeks before my mom got paid — she would tell me “I don’t know how we do it, but we always end up on our feet.” While my mother’s hope was briefly calming, it was not a very good strategy.

Growing up I was always very neat and organized. Whether it was my middle school locker or my bedroom there was order.

Jay Sutton

I have always been a fan of anime and video games. Growing up, I used to sit and watch shows with my cousins and brother and even write fan fiction. I didn’t have any friends who I knew of that were into the same things so I never got to connect with anyone on that throughout the school. It wasn’t until 2014. Read more>>
