Today we’d like to introduce you to ShortyDooWop.
ShortyDooWop, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
As a child, I grew up in Providence, RI where I was heavily influenced by NY hip-hop. I used to be in a girl in a breakdancing crew and I used to rap as a teenager. I was always influenced by the hip-hop culture.
A mother of 3 kids who donated her kidney to the father of her children. Have a podcast with her dj son. My son is DJ Finesco, age 17. After my mother died, I connected with music to cope with the pain and learned to dj myself.
I now DJ at Celsius Night Club in Fort Myers on Thursdays for SoulFly Thursdays.
I dj for the 239 Acoustic Affairs at Headpinz in Fort Myers on Tuesdays.
I dj at eh Nemo’s Bar & Bistro inside of Headpinz in Fort Myers on Saturdays.
I have a guest appearance on air on Fly 98.5, a hip-hop station in Fort Myers, where I do a segment keeping you updated with hip-hop news on First Lady Niki’s afternoon show. The segment is called Word On The Curb.
I have a Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice from Hodges University. I have a Masters in New Media Journalism from Full Sail University, while working full time and raising three kids.
My next goal is to have my own radio show at a hip-hop station. My radio idol is Angie Martinez. I want to be the Angie Martinez of my city.
Creative professionals face many challenges, but what do you feel is the most pressing among them?
I think the biggest challenge is having patience in knowing that it won’t happen overnight. A lot of artists give up, you have to put in the work and realize it will take years for most of us.
Do you have any events coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
I DJ Tuesdays & Saturday nights at Headpinz bowling alley in Fort Myers
I dj Thursday nights at Celsius Night Club in downtown Fort Myers.
I have a guest appearance on air on Fly 98.5, a hip-hop station in Fort Myers in the midday show.
