Born in La Vega, Dominican Republic, Rickstarr moved to New York at age five. Growing up in a Dominican household, he was exposed to the sounds of bachata and merengue throughout his childhood. This fostered a strong passion for music that Rickstarr discovered at a very early age. In his own words he, “Never wanted to do anything else.”
Fast forward several years, Rickstarr found himself immersed in producing and recording his own original music, while also navigating the meticulous “ins and outs” of music video production. As he prioritized the development of his songwriting and performance abilities, he simultaneously sharpened his video production skills. This included directing, shooting, and editing several music videos for other artists. It was through this process that Rickstarr came to find his way into the music industry.
After years of hard work and a deep appreciation for the art of music, it is no surprise that Rickstarr has come to develop a sound of his own. Rickstarr is poised and prepared to deliver his music to a global audience.
