Shain Richard Romanowski (born Nov. 10th, 1995), better known by his stage name A Certain Energy, is an American rapper from Fort Wayne, Indiana.
In late 2016 while being stationed in Okinawa, Japan as a U.S. Marine, he decided to take his career within the industry seriously after a demo song entitled "Slaughterfest" hit the streets. As it created a small buzz it led to him meeting with United Kingdom's spooky producer LX Xander who is credited for producing for artists such as Future, Hopsin, Snoop Dogg and much more. This led into the debut of his first project Work in Progess - EP featuring artists such as Highrise, T. Reeves and another Fort Wayne native Trell260.
In 2018, A Certain Energy released Rollin' with Kota the Friend and Ambition with hip hop icon Mickey Factz. Both tracks were produced by Bluff Gawd who is also a business partner and close friend of Energy. In 2019, he was featured on XXL Magazine’s Artist to Watch segment in the Spring issue. He also released Glenwood Ave in September 2019. This EP is dedicated to his late best friend Darian Asher-Layman.
As 2020 progresses, A Certain Energy released an EP titled No Pressure with New Jersey producer Cory Orlando in January. Additionally, a single titled Gold High was released under Energy alongside The Cool Kids very own Sir Michael Rocks and Jacksonville native Bluff Gawd as a producer and artist of the single. He plans on releasing more singles as the year goes on.
