Genre: Alternative Hip Hop
There was no other choice. Sometimes the love of music is so deeply ingrained--the need to express yourself so keenly felt-- no matter the cost. Coming out of Campbellford, Ontario, he started early. Some kids treat piano lessons like a chore, but he treated them like a lifeline. A way out. He grew up and fell in love with bass. Soon studying every aspect of music and lyric writing. He found himself deconstructing sound, what worked and what didn’t. Like so many frustrated small-town kids, he found a voice in influences --Eminem and Rage Against the Machine, Nas and Marilyn Manson. When he grew up, he got out, and he started creating a voice all his own.
Moving to Toronto, Krosst Out began to work obsessively, both in the studio and on stage, finding the sound that has become uniquely him. Slowly, he became known as the live performer who could convert a crowd in a hurry. Doing the rounds in small clubs and performing in front a drunk audience more times than he could count. Krosst Out has found himself crisscrossing the country, performing in venues from British Columbia, to Quebec, to New Brunswick, and back again. Bringing an energy and a passion, so even the people in the back with no idea who he was sure knew by the time he hit the last note.
