Having grown up in Essex County New Jersey, in a family of musicians, NBDY found it difficult to be seen for his individuality and learned to operate with great independence and determination at a young age.
“I moved around so much as a kid, I was never at a school long enough to really keep friends. My mom always working or whatever, so In a way we raised ourselves and learned to depend on Nobody,” he says. “ that really made me grow up fast and doing that I started to find what I wanted. Always being the underdog made me go after my dreams even harder just to prove You don’t have to end up a product of the demons that plague You.”
But after finding early success as a singer, NBDY fell prey to a different set of obstacles that stifled his integrity as pressure from the online community mounted to conform.
Now, performing under the moniker NBDY, the 24-year-old musician shares his truth while leading the charge for others to do the same. In doing so, he presents a uniquely multifaceted R&B style using sensory elements in both his lyrical choosings and melodies, weaving together his musical influences and his personal life experience.
“The ones who stand out and still go for what they want, fearlessly” says NBDY. “That’s what a wolf is. That’s what a Nobody is to me.”
