“Music has always been my passion.“ Following in his father’s footsteps. Shelby Wayne Smith was born for the music business. His father was the bass guitarist for country music superstar Toby Keith along side his uncle that played lead guitar. “I never was into country music growing up, I couldn’t play anything, i couldn't sing, and I always wanted to do something with music. I was always a really fast talker so I thought one day, and decided..Hey I’ll just rap!”
Growing up in the mountains of New Mexico. Ezra Hendrickson first picked up the guitar at the age of 7. “I find inspiration all around me. I try to make my music representative of myself and my generation. I love the places that most people don't give a second glance.“
