[4] He first started making music at the age of 19 as a demo vocalist at Sound Stigma Studios, where he discovered his love for songwriting and began to develop his career in music. He produced in different genres of music for rapper Tierra Whack and country duo Florida Georgia Line. [5]

On July 12, 2018, he released his first single "Honesty", which later started to gain attention on streaming platforms, reaching number 10 on Spotify's US Viral Chart. [2] He released the second single "No Replacing You" on July 26. [6] His debut EP Volume 1 was released on November 2, 2018, as the singer put out a music video for "Drama" later that month. He later followed this release with the sequel EP Volume 2. [7] [8]
