Santino Noir spent his early teens as an awkward 300lb misfit trying to find his voice his in a scattered and rapidly changing music industry. His first attempt at rap only came about due to the untimely death of his best friend and cousin Luke in 2013. Having been a fellow budding musician, then as the singer of a heavy metal band, Santino recorded the last lyrics his aspiring rapper cousin had written before he passed. Planting the seed for Noir's eventual foray in to hip hop.
Before Santino Noir took the full plunge in to urban music, he fronted hard rock act "Scarlet Carson" for 6 years, gaining a fair amount of notoriety in the east coat rock scene. Fronting this band helped him to hone his skills as a singer, songwriter, and performer, allowing him the grueling privilege of cutting his teeth on the gritty rock n roll circuit. An unconventional upbringing to which few rappers can lay claim.
A lyrically charged and unique flavor of hip hop, combined with high energy performances and a powerful vocal presence have allowed Santino to carve out his own niche somewhere in the bad lands of modern Rap/Hip Hop. An almost chameleon like diversity and extensive catalog has allowed him the opportunies to perform for tens of thousands of fans in venues big and small across the country, sharing the stage with acts such as Redman, MGK, Drake, Travis Porter, Papa Roach, Motley Crue, Ke$ha, Buckcherry, The Jonas Brothers, Adam Gontier (of Three Days Grace), Saliva, Melissa Gorga (Real Housewives of NJ), any many more. With a hurricane of new releases in the pipe, his feature film debut with JWoww (of Jersey Shore fame) in "The Mint, and seemingly no shortage of charisma or determination, Santino Noir seems to be right on track to upgrading from underground to being all over everyones radar in the very near future.
