FieldHouse started rapping at the age 16 with a group called Beyond, opening up for such acts as Digital Underground, Foxy Brown, One Life 2 Live, and many others. Wanting more he decided to go solo. With a range that goes from slow to fast, hype to emotional, some say he is the total package. In a day where getting to know an artist for who they are is dying, he puts himself out there for you to know and relate to.
Still early on in his dream, everything seems to be falling into place. Hooking up with his own team of producers committed to tailor making beats and landing with an over achieving manager at KaliRecords, everyone will soon know the name FIELDHOUSE. The music industry needs a breath of fresh air and this is it. With his debut album completed, the world had better prepare for the best things to come.
How do you describe your music to people?
I would describe it as passionate and driven. I would hope that my drive to make it in this industry and in life shows in my music and that people can relate to it in their own way.
Tell me about how you originally got into your craft.
I've always loved music, but I really started to notice I could do it when I started to tour with a group called Beyond when I was in high school. I would battle other rappers state to state and that's how I started out.
What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
Honestly, it has to be making music. That and watching football with family and friends.
What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your business?
Keeping at it and not giving up when the cards are stacked against you. I like the challenge tho and like conquering the odds, so even tho it's a challenge, it's one I accept.
When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
I really always wanted to make music. I know it sounds cheesy, but I would walk home from school and rap the whole way home. From trees to dogs or whatever was around... back when I didn't relate music with money or as a career, just out of pure fun and love for it.
In what way has your community impacted your development as a musician?
I grew up in different settings thru my life, and all of them have had an impact. It has helped me to respect all music. It doesnt have to be rap for me to like it. I can pull something from a rock record just as easy and it will inspire me.
What other artists out there do you love?
outkast, mos def, ludacris, talib kweli, wiz khalifa, kid cudi, black sabbath, metallica, megadeath, live, white zombie, korn, dr. dre, snoop dogg, wale, the doors, the beatles, grateful dead, goodie mob and the list keeps going and going. I love music!
What does your future hold?
I know that no matter what I will push myself till I cant do anymore, and a person can always get better and do more. Even if I fall on my face, I will get back up and swing for the fences. With an attitude like that, the future could be anything I want it to be.
