What’s your official Stage Name (showbiz name)?


Follow The_Meskimo on: Website, Facebook, Twitter, Bandcamp, YouTube, Instagram and TikTok.


What do you do (fashion, music, comedy, artist, dancer, etc.)?

I create audible frequencies that span genres and eras, sonically crafted for aural Pleasure.


How did you get into what you do (music, modelling, art, dance, etc.?)

My father was a musician and made sure to expose me to some great bands from the 60’s and 70’s when I was a kid. Growing up around that I naturally started playing in bands when I was a teenager, playing various instruments in each one. Spent some time away from music until I couldn’t stand not creating anymore. So, in December of 2020 I started making music again and I’ve put 39 songs out for the public to hear since then, full catalog @the_meskimo_oh_oh on SoundCloud.


What field or genre are you into and give a brief description of what your career/profession/ field feels like?

I started making Psychedelic Rock, incorporating different genres into my songs. I experiment a lot with sound and sometimes some beautiful sounds are made. I recently started making beats as well. I want my portfolio to be as broad as it can possibly be.


Who or what inspires you or motivates you? And why?

I have an insatiable desire to create music. I always have multiple projects and songs in the works. I want to make as much music and work with musicians/artists/bands from as many genres as I can. Music is a universal language and I plan on being fluent in it.


What was your first project and the people you worked with and which year?

Would have been some local hoodlums where I grew up, bored out of our minds and ready to destroy the world with rock and roll lol. The_Meskimo is the first project where I have been in creative control. I work with other artists and vocalists but besides that, I work alone.


How many projects do you have so far?

I have 39 songs for the public to listen to and 2-3 albums worth in my backlog.


How long have you been doing what you do?

I started producing my own music in December of 2020. When I played in bands I would contribute to the construction of songs, but never in depth as I am doing now. The concept of the final cut is a large task and I enjoy it very much. I have failed more times than I have succeeded and that’s ok.

Have you won any awards or been nominated for an award or in short, any achievement? Both in and out of your career path?

I was voted most likely to start a revolution and overthrow the government in high School.


What is this new release about?

It is a tribute to Terrence and Dennis McKenna for their contributions to the psychedelic community. I wanted the song to emulate Terrence’s lectures, the way he captivated you with animated speech while opening doors to new thoughts and ways to perceive the world. To keep the theme, I wanted to bring elements of classic psychedelic rock from the likes of Pink Floyd while also giving it a fresh and new feel to the genre.


Who and how many people worked on it?

I recorded all the parts.


What can your previous and new audiences anticipate from you in the future?

I have an EP I am working on. I am working with a singer on an original composition I wrote, engineering and writing keys for an indie artist’s ep and I have two hip hop beats with vocals being tracked and mixed


Young and vibrant man I am, God fearing, warm at heart. Music is bae food is life. If you've seen this then you know me!!!
