Artist Biography

From recording karaoke machine mixtapes with his older brother, to independently releasing two classic solo albums, 5th Child has evolved into one of the South’s most groundbreaking artists. Hailing from Jackson, MS, 5th Child blends southern bravado with thought provoking and soulful lyrics, which gives listeners mesmerizing rhythms to rock to and grow from at the same time. This artist/producer/engineer mixes poetic commentary with real life stories, providing a poignant point of view with an accessible backdrop of soulful production. This “5th Child sound” allows the listener to tightrope between the realms of conscious sensibilities and the catchiness of mainstream hits. 5th Child’s productions are exceptional, and his ability to communicate life through lyrics has yet to be duplicated. 5th Child live is truly an unforgettable experience.
