Douglas and DJ Irey’s friendship began while in high school, their shared passion for music providing solace from their troubled home lives. Each soon went on to forge their own path in the music industry – Douglas took on the moniker ‘Beach Boy’ and became a successful songwriter, DJ Irey a successful producer. The two reunited in early 2019, determined to take their decade of industry experience and put their creative energy into a project all their own.
“The goal of our music is to bring light to others in dark situations,” says Douglas. “Both Irey and I came from a rough past, but that’s how we connected and created 4th & Orange. Our music reminds others that in the dark you can be the light.”
