I'M MAD KEYS
Just a little bit about me.
I'm Mad Keys, a St. Louis-native music producer, synthist, and violinist. My sound blends elements of electronic music, jazz, soul, and, of course, hip-hop. My goal as a creator is to inspire others to pursue their God-given abilities, and to share my gifts and represent His glory through it all.
DO WHAT WORKS.
2016 was a rough year for me. I was inspired by all of these "things" and wanted to pursue every single project that placed me in the category as a "creative." I started a creative, social media freelance venture, I wanted to get into UI/UX design, building brands and helping others build start-ups, graphic design, you name it. That stuff didn't feel organic to me, and I felt that I spent more time learning how to do all of those things, and became stretched thin.
But it wasn't until March, 2017 that I made the decision to drop everything, and pursue the gifts that God gave to me from the beginning, and pursue music. Anything contrary to that would lead me toward the opposite direction where I'm to be. Music is what feels natural to me. It's nothing that I have to force. That's how doing what you love and what you know should feel.
