Matty Holmes, Kick Raw Clique

I was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario and moved to Brampton at the age 7 years old. As a young kid I never saw myself in the music business. I was into simple things like video games, soccer, and skateboarding. At the age of 17 I began finding an interest in vocals. However, I never saw myself being able to cut the part. I had a lot of friends in my circle that did music, none of them really showed any interest in my capability. They were all focused on themselves which took away my motivation to speak up.

At the age of 21 I began a business in event planning in Brampton, Ontario. I thought to myself if there was any hope for anyone to make something out of their music the first step was to bring the city together for musical events. Ardent Entourage was registered in 2012 with over 100 events done to date. I realized I had a passion in bringing people together and allowing them to express themselves lyrically.

In 2014, I came across an individual who surely changed my views in music and life. Brandon Pittman aka ETHIC approached me to help him begin his music career and help him get noticed through my events and other bookings. This collaboration quickly turned into a movement. KRC (Kick Raw Clique) is a group of passionate and talented individuals who helped me realize that I had a talent and that it was time to push it forward. With the amazing buzz we received from our remix “Ready Or Not” by the Fugees, we have now been noticed by several local producers and talent agents.

With almost a year under our belt as a team and a family, we are excited to breach into 2015 with the message “#itsmorethanmusic.” With amazing collaboration lined up with artists such as Merkelus we are sure not to stop pushing until the world hears what we have to say.
