wanted to do for the rest of my life. I made a commitment to myself that I
would give my all to see this come to fruition.
When I was a senior in high-school, a poet came
to visit my English class and it was at this time I became inspired to pursue a
career in the music industry. The poet (whose name I can’t recall) instructed
my class on how to format poetry as an alternative form of expression. This
experience later led me to begin writing songs. I then recorded a demo of several
songs (created from initial poetry) and released the demo via social media to share
with my friends and family my newfound pursuit.
Beautiful Struggle, 2012
My first full-length project released, a nineteen-song mixtape comprised of a compilation
of beats from several local artists and industry instrumentals. https://soundcloud.com/akuronyc/sets/roma-beautiful-struggle
