He is 21 years old, he was born and raised in Rotterdam, Holland and his name is Sergio Essed
Sergio grew up in a very big talented family. Almost everyone in his family is involved with music in a certain way.
His dad is a singer, a songwriter and a guitarist, and he was the one that introduced Sergio to music!
Sergio always loved singing and from the first time he saw a concert from Legend M.J. he was blown away by the quality’s of this super-icon.
After winning a talentshow and performing at festivals and jam sessions Sergio knew for sure he wanted to be a big star in the music industry!
M.J. always has been a big inspiration for him but besides him, he pulls his inspiration from ‘’icons’’ and big entertainers from this decade; Kanye West, Beyoncé, Ne-Yo and Usher.
Sergio don’t want to be ‘’just-another-singer’’
, he want to be a Big Time Entertainer.
That’s the main reason he took dancing classes at the HipHopHuis grounded in Rotterdam.
Dancing and feeling the rhythm has never been a big problem, but in his opinion there is always room left to grow so you can get better at the things you do!
Because he think developing yourself as an artist is very important, Sergio wanted to learn different type of music and did not wanted to stick to the music he was use to hear.
He didn’t want to stick with only one genre of music, so I added different kind of music to his Ipod-play-2-go-lists like; Neo-Soul, House, Rock and World Music as well. He learned a lot of things from a lot of other music besides the one he used to listen to.
Besides singing and dancing, he also write songs[lyrics] and he is starting to develop himself as a producer.
In September Sergio took the next step to learn everything about his talent and making it big in the industry, so he started the education Musician/Producer at Albeda College.
Everyday he learns something different about music, about playing instruments, about using his own instrument, about the history of all kind of genre’s music and about the business in the music industry.
Meanwhile Sergio is working very hard on his demo titled:
The Beast stands for letting your inner beast come out and be fearless, fast, hard and free!
Sergio had chosen this title because he think its time for him to expose his inner beast to the world!
Sergio is driven by tons of ambition, and is determent to achieve his life goal; get a Breakthrough and become a Icon in the Music Industry!
