The Awe-Inspiring Story of Artist Aaron Keel

Published

on

Among the various arts and platforms available to us, music has a way of perfectly expressing our emotions and telling our stories to the world. Musical artist Aaron Keel is familiar with the power of music as he uses it to share his story with the world. 

Born in Illinois, Aaron was adopted at three-weeks-old by parents who provided him with a great life. Although he was raised in the midwest, Aaron moved around a lot as a kid but he was always accompanied by his parents and their music. 

“[I] grew up listening to the music my parents played throughout the house like Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn, BB King, Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, and Frank Sinatra,” Aaron said. 

Working His Way in the Industry 

Aaron and his family ended up in Madison, Wisconsin. There, he started playing drums and the bass guitar in some bands. He also wrote most of the lyrics. By the time he was in high school, Aaron expanded his genre as he got interested in hip-hop music. 

He started writing rhymes in 2006 and quickly found out that people liked his music. Prompting him to release an album in the same year under another stage name. He sold 2000 copies of this album by hand, at the malls and out of his car.

“In 2007, I met Grammy award-winning International Artist Wyclef Jean in Miami and quickly became part of the family circle. I quickly became good friends with his sister Melky Jean and learned a lot from her artistically and was able to meet a lot of good people in the music industry,” Aaron shared. 

He was also able to go to New York City and Miami numerous times to support Melky Jean’s charity for Haiti called The Carma Foundation. 

From then, Aaron was able to network his way into getting on shows and tours with many major artists from 2006-2014.

The Pivotal Event in His Life and Career

“In 2014 my father who adopted me became sick and was in need of a kidney. Even tho we were not blood-related I was still a match to donate my kidney to him. So in 2014, I donated my kidney to him. I was forced to leave the tour I was on  and take three months off to recover from the surgery,” Aaron shared. 

He also left his label to focus on his family and taking care of his father who passed away unexpectedly in 2017. Later in the same year, Aaron moved to Phoenix, Arizona but had a hard time getting motivated to make music again as he was in a dark place. 

But in 2018, things in Aaron’s life shifted with the birth of his son and his reunion with his biological father. 

“I do this now to give my family a good life. After a long break from music, I am making my debut return to music as Aaron Keel and have just released my debut single, Vacation, on all platforms. Now just looking to gain a following again,” he said.

What Makes Esmae’s Newest Single ‘Oughta Know’ A Hit

Published

on

Last March 19, Friday, Esmae achieved a new milestone in her career. The singer/songwriter from Teesside, United Kingdom released her first single, “Oughta Know,” which received positive feedback from listeners. 

Esmae is an independent, self-funded artist who has just released her debut single, “Oughta Know” from her EP “Do Better.”

Her new single has garnered thousands of streams and is also supported by BBC Introducing, thus making it an even sweeter accomplishment for the up-and-coming singer-songwriter. 

Creating Relevant Music

Oughta Know is a sassy slice of pop that features a polished production, strong vocals, and an undeniably catchy chorus. It tells the story of a one-sided relationship from the perspective of someone who ‘oughta know’ better. 

The single earned over 27,000 streams and was followed by Esmae’s summer track, “Depend on You.’ Esmae has two further singles to be released later in the year. ‘Oughta Know’ is just a small taste of what’s to come for Esmae’s career in the music industry. 

“My goal is to keep writing relevant music that people can relate to and to start performing live soon,” Esmae said. 

She added that she’s proud that her songs draw inspiration from her life experiences or the experiences of people she knows, thus uncovering a whole range of human emotions while making the writing process interesting.

A Much Awaited Release 

Even though ‘Oughta Know’ has only been released a few months ago, Esmae has already been writing songs for longer than that. She wrote her first song when she was 16 years old. But because she was successful in other careers, she decided not to pursue music…yet. 

Over the years, Esmae could no longer deny her calling and passion for music. Despite all the twists and turns, she eventually went back to music and is now immersing herself in it fully. 

“Because I didn’t have the chance to pursue my music career when I was younger, it crystallized that this is what I want to do and as a result, I’m 100 percent focused on making that happen,” she said. 

The singer-songwriter first came to prominence in 2019 when her Soundcloud collection of tracks quickly garnered over 500,000 streams. Her passion for old-school RnB pop and buttery vocals allowed her to create her unique brand of music.  

Esmae later decided to stop sitting on the songs she’d been writing privately and take them into the studio to record. Now, she feels satisfied and fulfilled that she gets to share her music as she was always meant to do.

How OMG L33 $OUNDZ’ Hustle In Life Led Him To Music

Published

on

Back in 2019, OMG L33 $OUNDZ released a song on SoundCloud titled “No Limit$” ft. Vidal Garcia that reached more than 3,000 streams. Because of this song, the artist also gained a following on Instagram and since had a lot of engagement from his audience. 

OMG L33’s profound start in music wasn’t planned since he didn’t think of becoming a rapper or musician. But now that the way has been paved, he intends to hustle his way through the industry to show how much he can improve and achieve greater accomplishments. 

Discovering A Hidden Talent 

Before he made a breakthrough with his music, OMG L33 used to work in the automotive and transportation industry as a delivery truck driver and dispatcher. 

“I used to mess up when I would rap, and I learned to just keep going if a line or verse didn’t sound good.  I’ve always told myself I’d get better one day,” he shared. 

OMG L33 started rapping and writing lyrics when he was 14-years old. He based his lyrics on his life experiences and jotted down verses and bars that would come to him at the moment. 

The artist had humble beginnings as a welfare child. Whenever he needed something, he would take it upon himself to find ways to meet his needs. Eventually, this led him to music as an outlet where he can express himself freely. 

Back then, he knew he still had room for improvement as a rapper and songwriter. Looking back, and with the positive feedback that his song received, he can proudly say that he has become a better artist. 

Breaking A Cycle With Music 

OMG L33’s brand is called OMGFL which stands for On My Grind For Life. He came up with the name as a testament to how he grinded and hustled his way through life. 

He envisions his brand to be more than just another one in the music industry. When the time comes that OMG L33 is financially stable enough to call his music a full-time career, he wants to help others achieve the things he couldn’t due to poverty. 

“My main focus is to establish a name for myself as an artist so that people will understand what OMGFL stands for. I need to build a foundation for my children and let them have some sort of ownership down the line as I start to build on improving in different areas,” he said. 

By establishing his LLC legitimately, OMG L33 has the power to break the poverty cycle and build his brand into a business that caters to everyone in the entertainment industry.
