S.M.O.O.T.H., It Began With One Verse


S.M.O.O.T.H. is an acronym which stands for “Soul Music Only Offer The Heart” and he feels that placing your heart on your sleeve is one of the only ways for an individual to be understood in their fullness. S.M.O.O.T.H. has always had a passion for music from a young age singing in church choirs, writing simple songs, and rapping/singing to any and everything his parents would let him listen to at the time. S.M.O.O.T.H. is a creator and now has learned to hone his skills in music and along with determination and drive, he’s learned to make great music and seek out new ways to do so as well.

S.M.O.O.T.H. currently resides in Moorpark, California but was born in San Diego, California where he lived until he was 12 years old. He later moved to Oxnard, a city known for birthing producer Madlib, where he grew up. His story began with a group he’s still connected with named .maF which stands for Music and Family. While listening to friends’ freestyles, S.M.O.O.T.H. was drawn to do the same. One night he asked a good friend if he could be part of his group and if he could teach him what he needed to know in order to be a good emcee. His response was that S.M.O.O.T.H. write a verse and show him what he was capable of.

Following that verse S.M.O.O.T.H. had a show with the group a few weeks later at California Lutheran University, Thousand Oaks. Since then he has performed at many venues such as The El Rey Theater in Hollywood, Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, the Ventura Theater, the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, and many other small venues along the coast and inland.
