A fitting name for the young rising local artist who has already been recognized by local newspapers and radio plays. SHORTE has opened up shows for numerous mainstream acts such as Bone Thugs n Harmoney, Krizz Kaliko, & Lil Flip just to name a few. He was also the only nomiated Hip Hop act to perform at the Vans WARPED TOUR 2011 (Seattle) on the Ernieball Stage. SHORTE credits his love for writing lyrics and making feel good music for people of all demographics; to his humble beginnings. You could say that grinding so long has made SHORTE into a sharp independent artist and businessman with goals of building a successful empire as a singer, songwriter, MC, producer and performer.
