Hip-hop is a game – and it’s time for a game-changer. Make that a game-ChAnGeR – (The Former Single Father). Born of French, Scots and Aboriginal roots, bred from the streets of the gritty, steel city (Hamilton, Ontario). ChAnGeR represents an uncommon attitude in hip-hop – a new sound, a new point of view.
A single father since the age of seventeen, ChAnGeR is a different voice in a genre where so many voices are exactly the damn same. His perspectives range from being a caring sole custodian father, to raising awareness regarding mental disease issues. ChAnGeR (A.K.A. ChangerMusic) has had a passion for music since he was four years old. Even more passionate in his teen years, ChAnGeR studied various music and honed his skills while writing, producing and performing his current catchy songs. In 2013, he founded his professional home studio and took a second look at his artistry. It was time to get serious. It was time to make a change. Music for ChAnGeR is more than just a party. It’s the medicine that heals, the vent through which he expresses the frustrations, pride, hectic accomplishments and disappointments of being a sole custodian/single father in a cold hard world.
It isn’t easy to hear where ChAnGeR’s sound comes from, because he imitates no one. He finds influence in artists as disparate as KRS-ONE, Eminem, Justin Timberlake, AC/DC and Big Pun; Dre, Primo, Timbaland, and the RZA/Wu. and ideals, has helped keep ChAnGeR focused, driven and grounded. He writes from the perspective he knows – a factory working artist in a middle-class town, graduating from sharing a one-bedroom apartment with his son, to surviving poverty and buying a house right across the street. Variety and hard hitting drums are found throughout ChAnGeR’s discography available HERE.
From Changer’s former 2009 – 2013 distribution deal with Hamilton’s Sonic Union, to performing Alberta and Toronto’s 2016 and 2017 Canadian Hip-Hop Music Awards, Changer has evolved from a struggling single father lyric based artist, to a diverse, all around relateable songwriter and role model.
SPITSICKBEATS is Changer’s new production venture deal for his 2019 and future projects. His voice changes, his sound changes & ChAnGeR’s subject matter is no longer just about representing single father’s now. 2016 and 2017 seen this conscious and eclectic artist/producer receive 7 different nominations and fly out to Edmonton’s Canadian Hip-Hop Awards, as well as rock their trade show event. In Dec 2017, Changer opened for Dr. Dre’s son, Curtis Young and wrote to one of his tracks. 2018 was chalked full of live performances, videos and an album release dedicated to ChangerMusic’s mother who passed on 2.2.17.
