YERO

GROWING UP IN YERO’S HOME IN THE SOUTHEAST AREA OF WASHINGTON, D.C. WAS SIMPLE. IT WAS ABOUT MUSIC! ANY GIVEN NIGHT THE HOUSE WOULD BE FILLED TO THE BRIM WITH HIS FATHER’S LIVE BAND MUSICIANS JAMMIN UNTIL THE ‘WEE’ HOURS OF THE MORNING. YERO’S FAVORITE MEMORY OF MUSIC WAS EARLY IN HIS LIFE WATCHING HIS FATHER PURSUE THE DREAM THAT WOULD SOON BECOME HIS LIFE. YERO IS ONE OF THE HOTTEST NEW ARTISTS TO EMERGE FROM THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. AN ACCOMPLISHED PRODUCER AS WELL AS RAPPER, YERO HAS TRULY PAID HIS INDUSTRY DUES. YERO BEGAN HIS JOURNEY IN MUSIC AS A PROFESSIONAL DRUMMER AT THE AGE OF 12. HE HAS STUDIED AND PERFORMED NEARLY EVERY GENRE OF MUSIC FROM CLASSICAL TO HIP-HOP. MUSIC IS DEFINTELY IN HIS BLOOD AS HIS FATHER WAS A SONG WRITER FOR GREATS SUCH AS THE WHISPERS AND ROBERTA FLACK. YERO FURTHERED HIS KNOWLEDGE OF THE MUSIC BUSINESS BY INTERNING AT WASHINGTON D.C.’S 93.9 WKYS FM RADIO OWNED BY RADIO ONE FOUNDER CATHY HUGHES. WHAT MAKES YERO’S STYLE SO DISTINCT IS THE PASSION IN HIS VOICE AND THE POTENCY OF HIS LYRICS. YERO HAS PERFORMED ON STAGES FROM D.C.’S HISTORIC TAKOMA STATION TO L.A.‘S KNITTING FACTORY AND B.B. KINGS. HE WROTE AND RECORDED THE THEME SONG TO THE SONY PLAYSTATION GAME ‘ATV BLAZIN’ FURY 4. YERO RECENTLY JOINED THE PRODUCTION TEAM OF D.C.’S HIGHLY CREDITED PRODUCER CHUCKY THOMPSON. AS WELL, HE WROTE AND PRODUCED MUSIC FOR FUNNY MAN MIKE EPPS’S COMEDY/MUSIC DVD SOON TO BE RELEASED THROUGH KOCH RECORDS. HE ALSO MOVED OVER 10,000 INDEPENDENT UNITS OF HIS MIXTAPE ‘LIVE OR DIE:VOL.1 ‘. ONE OF YERO’S GREATEST MUSICAL QUALITIES IS HIS ABILITY TO COMPOSE AND WRITE HIS OWN MUSIC. ALTHOUGH YERO IS TRULY HIP-HOP, HE IS AN ARTIST’S ARTIST. HE IS REMINICENT OF ARTISTS LIKE MARVIN GAYE AND STEVIE WONDER WHO WROTE AND COMPOSED MUSIC THAT THE PEOPLE COULD FEEL. WHEN ASKED HIS VIEW ON THE IMPORTANCE OF MUSIC YERO STATES: “MUSIC IS IMMORTALITY. THE LEGACY I WANT TO LEAVE WITH MY MUSIC WILL FAR EXCEED MY YEARS. THAT IS THE BEAUTY OF MUSIC. ONCE THE MUSIC IS CONCEIVED , IT LIVES FOREVER.”
