Passionate about music as a kid, Shane Willz was introduced to instruments at an early age. He was skillfully playing guitar and piano by age 9 and, by age 12, had already formed his first band. As Shane matured he began to refine his skills and shift his musical momentum towards hip hop. With a strong musical background, Shane picked up production quickly and, as luck would have it, a friend who was moving out of town gave Shane everything he needed to get started on the road to a successful future in hip hop.
Armed with nothing but a keyboard, MPC, computer and microphone, Shane threw himself into his music. Spending countless hours day and night working away until everything was perfect. Every kick, every snare, every rhyme, every sound. "Music first, everything else secondary," was his motto. From house parties with friends spitting freestyles for hours, to rocking the stage in front of thousands of strangers, Shane knew from the start that this was his calling.
Fast forward a few years and Shane Willz has become something of a multifaceted dynamo. He is his own producer, artist, engineer, manager, agent and marketing team. After pursuing Audio Engineering in San Francisco and Los Angeles, Shane gained valuable production and recording skills as well as knowledge and insight into the industry. He has produced music for companies like Converse and Nike, and has shared the stage with artists such as The Game, Snoop Dogg, Kid Ink, Asher Roth, MGK, Bone Thugs, Big Boi, Andre Nickatina, GZA, E-40, Gucci Mane etc.....
Steadily progressing with his music and always keeping an open mind to new ventures, Shane is certainly showing dedication to his craft as well as an uncompromised work ethic. With great success from the release of his first mixtape "RAGELIFE", and much anticipation surrounding the release of his new EP titled "P.A.I.N.T.", fans, family and friends are all anxiously waiting for Shane Willz to truly take the spotlight and show the world that this is what he was born to do.
