Artist Bio: AWOL

by Mike Lightner on April 22, 2014

awollogoAWOL was born and raised in the streets of Santa Ana, CA.

At age 14 he touched his first microphone, started recording, and started to learn how to DJ with his friends in his garage. At that time he also realized that him and his crew had a lot of potential so he started to promote him and his crew by making flyers and posters of little events he would do at his house and sometimes at his friends house. But one day he threw an event it was devastating. His young true friend was killed due to gang violence. He made a vow to stop with the gang violence, tagging, and slanging. After that devastating event he stopped making music for a while and everything changed.

Until he hit age 16 is when he committed himself to try and put himself together and put himself out way more for his fallen brothers and friends, telling people of his stories trying to tell people that gang violence is not worth it but he also quotes “sometimes gangs can be the only protection from other threats.”

He started calling his old promoters and said he was back and started to make more events for him and his crew. By doing this he caught attention from some more new local promoters from clubs and got an offer from one promoter saying that they wanted him to DJ every week for house party events out in LA, Orange County, and the Inland Empire. This made him get his name known out there quick, people saw this young boy scratching the turntables and mixing and got blown away! Thats when more promoters wanted him to perform for them which lead to more opportunities. It’s also when performing at house parties he met this young cat named Ferney also known as “DJ Phaze” which changed everything for him. Ferney helped him a lot by getting him the two biggest events of his life which were at the “The Yost Theater” and the “Pomona Fox Theater” which made everyone in the OC, LA, and IE area know him. Till this very day he is still making music.

He says he doesn’t really have any inspirations, he quotes “My inspirations? My inspirations are anything I feel deeply.”

He also quotes “To be honest making a bio is a little unnecessary but screw it people need it so they can know a little info at least haha theres way more things to say about my life but if you really want to know more just listen to my music and you’ll know who I am, what I stand for, and where I came from.”
