Through his parents influence his early childhood was flooded with the compositions of such greats as: Isaac Hayes, Grover Washington, Herby Hancock, Rufus and Chaka Kahn, Donald Byrd, Curtis Mayfield and many other live music legends that have become a sampler’s dream in these modern times.
Never having much instruction with any live instruments back in the day, poetry was his only out let besides just listening to music, beating on anything that would make a sound and make anyone listening nod their head.
CHILLENEUM™’S adolescent years in hip hop were spent deejaying parties, competing in local talent shows and wowing any young MC’s that felt they were up for the challenge.
After his high school graduation, CHILLENEUM™ was presented with the opportunity to record and he took it.
That first recording session became the anthem for Atlanta’s Freaknic, a college celebration where college students and vacationers came from all over the U.S. for spring breaking. The single was released by Coastal Records a leading distribution label based in Atlanta and CHILLENEUM™ gained his first experiences as an independent selling artist. That single sold for 3 years straight during the Freaknics to follow and the video to Freaknic Freak-out was an underground success.
Upon going solo CHILLENEUM™ started his own production and publishing company and continued collaborations with his fellow squad members THYCK CLYCK, DOUBLE CEES, and BELOW DREWP who all are featured on his sophomore recording “CHILLENEUM™: LOVE OF THE CHA$E”. The album depicts the struggle to become wealthy and live one’s own dream against dim odds. “My first internet marketing was a free site named Audiostreet.net.” Chill states. “That’s where I first met fans and artists from all over the world some who showed me first hand the value of MP3 and ringtone downloads.” He laughs. “Don’t get it twisted though, I still love the stage and being face to face with the crowd and through this medium we’ll meet the crowd abroad!”
CHILLENEUM™’S “CHILLTONES®” now reach across the globe from California to Australia, from the Ukraine to Japan and he enjoys responding to fans personally.
