Hi, I'm 96 (pronounced nine-six) from Largo, Maryland. I'm a recording artist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist aspiring to express my authentic self sonically. My musical exploration began in third grade as I joined my schools orchestra playing the alto saxophone. Although my journey with the saxophone only lasted a year due to expensive rental costs, my desire to make music mildly grew within me. Through my adolescence I became a self taught musician learning to play both guitar and piano. By the time I had entered high school I had a $40 first act guitar and a keyboard I had borrowed and the owner forgot about lol. Although I didn't have expensive and quality materials I had become determined to utilize both to my greatest potential. High school was pivotal time in my music journey, I took two semester piano classes and a musicianship class that encouraged me to continue growing, and validated many self doubts. I graduated in 2014 and took all my graduation monetary gifts and invested into a MacBook Pro (the one I'm currently typing this on lol) and began my journey into production on GarageBand. A lot in my life has changed from 2014 to 2022, but making something out of nothing has been a continued theme in my production journey. I have produced many songs and connected with many talented artists both locally and abroad. I am currently in a season of life where I am going promoting my work and amplifying my fellow artists. The track, Shoebox Money featuring Basick Lee Joshua, is one I'm particularly proud of because the completed track came to life exactly how I had envisioned it. The second I began chopping the sample I knew the track had to be gritty and straightforward. My search for a lyricist to complete the vision was short, once I sent the track to Basick he was on it, and the rest is history. I am proud that the record exceeded both of our expectations, Basick is a lyrical beast with a hustle mindset. There is more to come really soon, but as of now listeners can stream Shoebox Money along with my other work on all streaming platforms, I also have links on my Instagram @ninteysxx.
