It was a win/win for him; people would come on to his page and see his interactions with his daughter and then go onto checking his music out. He shows his audience who he is as a person as he does as an artist which is, a humble loving father proud of those he cares about and a creative motivated artist. 

Being the humble ambitious person he is he has learned and understands that there is healing through music. He has learned that not everybody is genuine but also knows that not everyone is out to get you. Rico Freeman states, “You have to use judgement. What you put into it is what you get out of it, maybe not initially but stick to it and everything will fall into place”. He wants anyone following his career path to know that they should do what makes them happy. Never drain yourself and keep going after what you’re passionate about. Never give up, unless your heart is no longer in it and you just feel like you have nothing else to give. Even then come back to it which is what has happened to him. He got discouraged but came back harder than he left, all in all keep going. 

Check out Rico Freeman and all he has to offer and again look out for his second studio album “The Real Story Pt. 2”.

Nckv: His Sounds Truly Excite The Senses

Published

on

Nicholas “Nckv” von Holtermann is a New York-based Asian-American independent musician whose affinity for innovation transcends the confines of genre. In the time since he humbly began his career in a makeshift living room studio, the singer, rapper, and producer has trained his focus on world-building, combining his ambient, forward-thinking sounds with nostalgic anime-style visuals. Outside the studio, Nckv has cultivated his stage presence by performing at local bars.

Nckv credits pandemic-induced isolation as a catalyst for his creativity. He used the time to hone his craft both in solitude and in a new frontier: a professional recording studio with a slew of gifted musicians from near and far. His ambition to expand his range has attracted the likes of illustrators, animators, and major publications.


The outcome of his flourishing productivity came to fruition with his debut EP “Spectre,” a dreamscape of experimental electronic hip-hop sautéed in hints of trap, pop, and soul. Throughout the project, Nckv flaunts a decade’s worth of avid musicianship with dynamic layers and soundscape shifts that could blow the minds of casual audiences while also offering depth that only the most trained of ears would appreciate. Above all, though, Nckv celebrates his EP as an authentic self-introduction to a world in need of his light.


In the wake of his release, Nckv is riding the momentum to build up his collective “Async,” an all-inclusive congregation of creatives across mediums that play to each other’s strengths to achieve team-wide success. He hopes to bolster his networks, public presence, and musical aptitude in pursuit of being the best he can be.

RCA Has What It Takes To Be An American Icon

Published

on

R.C. Martin better known as RCA is an on the rise recording artist from San Francisco, CA.

RCA is a multifaceted creative who is an avid guitar, bass and keys player. His creativity does not stop there. He is also a DJ and designer/art director. You can see RCA in his most natural setting while performing on stage. Performing allows him to utilize all of his creativity while showing his stage presence to the audience.  

His style has remnants of an 80s/90s R&B vibe with a modern twist including Psychedelic Rock, City pop and The West Coast Vibe of course. His inspiration comes from some amazing artists such as Kaytranada, TLC, Tame Impala and Anita Baker. 


RCA has always had a fondness for music. His parents would play Quiet Storm jams on KBLX while on the way to school. That sound had a huge impact on him, while also learning his love for the Japanese sounds on Final Fantasy and Mega Man.

It wasn’t until one Christmas that RCA received his first boombox and would start to discover artists such as Snoop Dogg, Mary J Blige, Green Day, OBD and others. The music his parents and sister exposed him to became a huge influence on his sound today. From there he taught himself how to play the trumpet, guitar, and bass. 


RCA started off making music in punk and ska bands, but found that only limited his artistic self expression. Overtime, he moved on to writing music himself with a 4track recorder, then Logic and Reason. 


It seems moving on his path alone has helped shape who he is today.

 After finishing a tour at the end of 2019 with his rap crew, FIRST COUSINS), alongside Curren$y, Smoke DZA, and Ski Beats. He finished work on his first solo release. “RELATIONSHIPS”is a 12 track psychedelic R&B album reflects on a familiar and intimate narrative of connection, commitment, and consequences of not growing up. XLR8R featured the album singles “We Make Fire“and “Let’s Take Our Time“.

His music is highly relatable to all listeners of all sorts. This past month he put on a show stopping performance at Dirty Bird Camp with the Twerkaholics as well as hosting his Mission District parties “Classics (w/ DJ IVY)and Ace Sinatra and “The Exchange with DJ Ya Bish RCA also has a LP in the works with San Francisco based rapper DaVinci , “Shadow Work” an album with East Bay singer AudioBae as well as the debut of his band, “FOVEA°”

with members Clear Thought and Mesen Around. Once that is all done, his follow up to “RELATIONSHIPS”, “REFLECTIONS” will be next. A 24 track beat tape titled “SAN FRANCISCO” will proceed that release. 


RCA is forever progressing when it comes to his brand and craft. He states “Have a perspective and something to say with your music. It is your art. Learn how to talk to people and make friends. If someone doesn’t like you as a person, they won’t want to spend time dealing with you. Your music would have to be game changing for them to deal with an asshole, lol. People put their homies on and people they see something in. Stay true to your word, and be proactive in communication. No one wants to do more work than they have to, so you can look good by over communicating when working with anyone—don’t be the weak link or bottleneck.” Wise words from such a talented human being. 


Make sure you check out his current work before he releases new content.
