Bio: Up and coming artist who's love of Neo-Soul, and True Hip-Hop, and all music in general gives his style a new flavor that is needed today.
The Singer/Rapper/Song-writer/Producer was born in Birmingham, Alabama and it was his parents that started his love for music. Hundreds of Vinyl Records, CDs, and cassettes have influenced the rhythmic tunes that Soundz Grate's music gives off as soon as you hit the play button.

With a name like Soundz Grate he has a reputation to live up to, and a hell of a lot to prove to everyone. Keep an ear out for the one who Soundz Grate and walks in the foot steps of legends.

Spiritual Awakening. After seeing the heaven's gates, my spiritual side of me, came from deep inside of me. Me and the Lord, came together and the fight that I've been battling, for 15 years, was finally over because I finally see the light. I knew the Word of God was true , and this is something I will never forget. I seen my self die, and come back to life. To me, it was very scary. I'd never been that scared in my whole life, and I've seen a lot happen, so I hope my story really reaches out to people who have struggled, in any type of way. All these 34 years of my life, dealing with the struggles I've been dealing with, my whole life. I've always asked my self, "Why do I have to deal with all this pain?" That's when I have to pray to the Lord, and ask Him, and He answers in His own way. Goals I have in the next five years; Goals I have, is to tell my story and reach out to 1.5 million people and change lives, see the change in peoples eyes. Become a better man, and be the best father in the world. To show the world, nothing can stop me from living, that only God can judge me. Pray to eat better and gain weight, keep going with my music. "Rory, has been doing music for 13 years, and I've had dreams of helping others, and never gave up, he wants to teach kids to never give up on there dreams, no matter what comes there way in life."
