As early as twelve years old, he became fascinated with the look and sound of Hip Hop music. So in his free time, he started writing small verses just to get a feel for what he had been admiring in the main stream media. As time moved on and he matured, he and his friends began to freestyle as a friendly competition and for bragging rights. He quickly began noticing his talents were far more superior than that of everyone else participating. With this knowledge, he decided to take his musical ability to the next level. At the age of eighteen he acquired a music recording program and proceeded to showcase these talents on his first song. As the song gained momentum and popularity, growing not only locally but statewide, he knew from this point that he had found his true calling. With new found confidence and creativity he vowed to dedicate his life to music and accomplishing his dream of becoming a worldwide phenomenon.
As time progressed, as well as his talent, charisma, and popularity, he acquired the necessary skills to market himself as a household name. Using social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, ReverbNation, and iTunes, he began showcasing his artistic ability to the masses. What you see on the outside is only the tip of the iceberg. As a multifaceted artist, he writes, produces, performs, edits, engineers, directs, designs and other countless attributes that help shape and mold his persona. All of these feats are self-taught, self-attained and auto-didactic. He has familiarized himself in the use of Pro Tools, Audacity, Mix Craft, Final Cut, Sony Vegas, and Photoshop just to name a few. Life experiences, logistics and the desire for something better are some of his many influences and why his love for Hip Hop, Pop, Rock, Dub-step, and even Country reflect in his music.
This industry is in dire need of someone with the drive, passion, and undeniable ability that not only defines him as a musician, but as a person as well. He represents change, a fresh new look and idea, needed to keep the music industry relevant. History tells us stories throughout many generations. Overtime these stories become diluted with lies, making them "tall tales" or "legends". Well this story is set in stone. MiKE OH!O™ is the Future! He will make History!.. "Believe your own Legend"
