Born Adrian Jamaal Camp in St. Louis, Mo. in 1984. His father was a salesman from California; His mother a business major at Lincoln University, they met at a party one night were sparks flew.

One year later, a son was born. When Adrian was 3 years old, they split and he and his mother moved to Atlanta, Ga.

There Adrian flourished as a promising young child taking a special interest in girls. His other love was music. He listened to the hip hop stars of the '90s like LL Cool J, Mary J. Blige, and Jodeci. But he also had a love for soul musiic like artists such as Al Green, Earth Wind and Fire, and Sade. He was later quoted saying, "I listen to all types of music: rock, pop, jazz, rap, R&B; If it sounds good, I'll listen to it."

He started perfoming at a young age. Singing in talent shows and at family reunions. So by the time he was eight, he was over any jitters of being on stage. In middle school, he was a local celebrity, always on stage singing and dancing whether it was old Temptations 'How Sweet It Is' or new Dru Hill 'Beauty'.

High school poved to be a difficult time. After attending five different high schools, he dropped out the year he was expected to graduate, having not enough credits. He fell into the streets and dibbled and dabbled in drug dealing, but eventually found his way back to music.

In 2005 he moved back to St. Louis where he recieved his GED. Yearning to find his nitch, he waited patiently for the right people to come into his life, "I can't just work (artistically) with anyone. I have to have somebody with the same amount of talent as I have in order for us to complement each other."

Now 26, Adrian is eager to release his own personal sound into the world and see what type of sound echoes back.
