Toon is a record producer, song writer, artist and musician from Durham, NC.He first rose to local recognition after several live performances at Duke University alongside, most notably, major label recording artists Mike Posner, Big Sean and 2am club. From these live performances he eventually achieved recognition for his skills by students who recognized him at his workplace(Duke University). Toon was born in Baltimore, Maryland to a single mother. After his mother’s extremely abusive marriage and tumultuous divorce, which he rarely speaks about, they moved to North Carolina for a change and better quality of life. While in North Carolina, Toon attended Durham School of the Arts. It was there that he found his love for the stage. It wasn’t until meeting frequent collaborator The Real Laww, that he realized his full potential as a multi- faceted artist. His style of production channels electro-pop influences with a modern hip-hop backdrop, vocal samples from soul and rock songs incorporated with his own drums and instruments. Toon is currently performing and booking shows at a school and city near you.
