I C O N I C is a culmination of everything I've experienced since I've entered this world. Throughout the journey of my music as an individual and an artist, I provide an array of emotions, feelings, thoughts, and perspectives on my current mind state. Born and raised in North Carolina, I have been writing music my entire life, and creating and performing music in Charlotte and the surrounding areas for 6 years. My music draws from my life and experiences and provides an insight into my struggles, triumphs, and the emotions surrounding them. It shows personal growth and the journey I have taken to become who I am today: I Can Only Navigate In Creativity. - I C O N I C
