I'd like to introduce one of the hottest young artists coming out of the Chicago Music scene, Acetha Don. He's talented and definitely driven as he continues to work weekly on refining his trade and making the most of music. I've had the pleasure of managing him for the past 8 months and I've received nothing but commitment and focus from him as he strives to become better and better with each studio session and performance.
This group has changed the way I perceive music. I have always listened to music, but until I met these two amazing gentlemen I never truly appreciated music for what it is. These two young men bring energy, and passion into every line that comes from their lips whether it be in a song or a conversation. I have always been a big believer in destiny, and I truly believe that they were destined to meet and make music together.
