A fitting name for the young rising Seattle artist who has already been recognized by local newspapers and radio plays.

SHORTE had few years working on his craft and released his first album, 'The Resume' in February 2011. This album generated a buzz that paved with more recognition within the local streams.The project as a whole was mostly street oriented It felt dark for a good portion with tracks that reign with thoughts of west coast supremacy to those that touch on tales of being a regular individual growing up in an urban environment. Appeal is needed among varied listeners and SHORTE delivered a few catchy street anthems as well as a few Pop/R&B radio crossover selections. The project showed SHORTE as an artist; showcasing his skill set in rapping and as a producer.

SHORTE considered this EP to be a very personal project focusing aspects of life, Known for being able to be up-tempo with his delivery SHORTE finds time to split styles and keep a normal moderate flow throughout.
