Featured Artist: @ohnyeNEEK #NeekShavon

Music always played a constant role in my life. It wasn’t until college that I truly identified my creative flow. From there, I recorded a few songs with some college friends which led to us releasing a compilation mixtape. Soon after I graduated and the tape released I moved from Montgomery to Philly in 2015. Traveling back and forth to gain buzz, I performed for the first time ever in front of the OG Bigga Rankin in Atlanta, GA. I became a solo independent artist shortly after in 2016. 

Since in Philly, I’ve networked with other creatives including RECPhilly where I am currently a FREETHINKERS member. In 2017, I performed at SXSW for the first time as an solo artist. I shot my first music video to my single ‘G V O’ only moments after my performance that documented the dope experience. Also in 2017, I officially became a mentee to Grammy Award winning artist, Chrisette Michele under her Artist Development program at Rich Hipster University.

Since the mentorship, I’ve gained industry knowledge and even recorded with the singer for the first time this past May. I’m currently working on and recording new music for the release of my first project coming out later in the year.
