GET TO KNOW KING DOS
“Music is my vice. Visuals are my Passion.’’ As an artist I’ve strived to take life's experiences and merge them into words. I’ve hope to create sonic experiences that make you feel, and visuals that help you understand.
Music grabbed ahold of me early on, and never let go. Little did I know it would be the very thing that would distract me from my surroundings. Born in Gardena CA, being raised between Compton and Rialto Ca offered me a wide range of hurdles. It was almost like I could jump from one world to another. Each world offering its own positive/negatives. I unknowingly learned to adapt, but one thing was consistent, music! Young at the time I may not have known the words I sang but I knew they made me feel. In one world I learned the soulfulness of Gospel, and in the other I mimicked the grit of Hiphop. Some how in the same way I’ve done in life I met things in the middle, and thats where my love of R&B was found. I remember watching a man that I knew to be hard and tough, sing a song so soft and meaningful word for word. I could see it made him feel. It gave him something to relate to. I knew then music was a Language I had to learn.
“These Three Words” by Stevie Wonder was not only the same song I watched this man pour his heart out to, but the same song that drives me to give that same feeling to anyone I can. The two worlds I grew to know is not just the reason I am able to adapt in life, but the reason I’m able to adapt to the change that is music all the while staying true to the language. Every song should make you feel, cause some type reflection, and see a perspective.
