Biography

Memphis, United States

Songwriter, student, and fledging pianist are a few of the titles claimed by artist Blizzy Ballard. A Memphis, TN native, Blizzy has maintained a close relationship with music since the early age of 9 years old. “I rememeber buying CD’s, listening to albums from beginning to finish, and being able to pick the second and third singles; from then on, I knew I would only find happiness in music. ” Discovering his own talent was inevitable as he began to study hip hop, the culture, and why words coupled with beats touched so many people. Coming from a city with a rich musical background, the people that Blizzy credits for his influence may be surprising. “Of course the Illmatic’s and the Reasonable Doubt’s of the world made an impact on me. But my not-so cliche influences include people like Spike Lee, Malcolm X, and Donny Hathaway. I’ve always been amazed by stories of triumph over adversity and how those stories shaped the lives of those who tell them and those who hear them.” Overcoming his own setbacks were critical in forming his music; coming from a broken home, witnessing the abuse of his mother, gang affiliation, and being falsely accused of a crime are just a portion of the real life experiences that seep through Blizzy’s lyrics. The vulnerability and honesty in his songs compliment a flow that is boastful yet humbling.
