Growing up on the streets of South Central, Los Angeles, Autumn In June’s childhood was saturated by violence, gang culture and a community revere for rap music. Escaping the violence, Autumn In June took a leap of faith and began to experiment with an array of music to which his peers were aggressively opposed. The locals soon gave him the name of Autumn In June as they considered him to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Despite the often-negative criticism he received Autumn In June embraced this title and decided to continue to make the kind of music that he truly loved and to inspire other people to be proud of who they are. Autumn In June is one of the few, if not the first, indie-pop artist to emerge from South Central, Los Angeles.
His debut EP is insanely amazing mixing electronic and hip-hop beats, with soulful pop lyrics. Check out his single "Hey Arnold" here:
