A.R.T.’s musical versatility makes him a well respected songwriter and producer, but this young man from Richmond, VA, as an artist and performer, has just started making waves. While he continues to produce music for others, it is time for the A.R.T.ist in him to make his debut!
He is the now the Co-founder of his own music label hoping to be a force behind the independent movement of artists.

He is very excited to finally be debuting his work as an artist with his new single FRIENDZONE. It is a great introduction to this new sound leading his forthcoming body of work.
A.R.T. on the sound of his upcoming album: “The sound of the debut album will feature heavy drums, deep bass lines which will infuse an overall sonically dark sexy vibe, all rooted in personal experience, and translated into a monumental expression of love and pain because that is A.R.T, and that is... art. Today it’s easy to get lost in everything else going on musically, but I’m happy to have finally found my voice, myself, and my sound. Like Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: 'To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.'"
