About Links

 

Links has been through it all and has seen it all. He was born in Frankfurt, Germany, and grew up in cities all over The United States. He was a foster child in his early years. He grew up learning to adapt to different downs and finding new friends everywhere he went. Part of how he chose the name “LINKS” is because he's the only connection 'LINK-ing' them up together, although, it’s hard to ‘link’ him to one place. “Well I mean, I’ve always been a hyperactive kid running around on Ritalin, but I channeled my anxiety/aggression through Sports, Music and Arts.” - LINKS

He served in the Air Force from September 2007-May 2011 and has currently graduated his Bachelor Degree in Recording Arts on October 31, 2014, and is now pursuing his Master’s Degree in Entertainment Business at Full Sail University. With music being his main passion, LINKS has been inspired by artists like; The Great Marvin Gaye, Lil Wayne,T.I., LL Cool J, & The Notorious BI.G. He’s influenced by many different genres, but the ones which have influenced him the most would have to be Jazz, Hip Hop, Pop, Blues and Rap. He is a mixture of sounds and really just loves great music when he hears it.

It’s now his time to morph into the great music artist that he knows he is. In 2018, LINKS will be releasing his latest album “The Struggle Is Over”. He is the result of hard work and the mainstream in need of an artist like himself. “I have the confidence of a model, the heart of a lion, the head of a mascot and the fans are what keep me going. So keep bringing the love and support!” - LINKS

‘The Struggle Is Over’ (T.S.I.O.), is LINKS’‘transition project between his last album and his next album. “ I want to educate, open minds, and share my experiences...The reason why I put my lifestyle into my music is because I want to be a voice for those who don’t have one… People don’t realize that whatever you put into your body, you digest it, then it comes out. That saying does not only pertain to food, but also music, media, negative people, avoidable circumstances, and the list could go on.” - LINKS

Gifting the world with ‘STEPS’, the first release off his long awaited new album T.S.I.O., LINKS is trying to pass the word forward, advising those who are lost or unsure about what their next step should be to always have a plan. With a progressive trap beat, braced with LINKS’ genius lines and unique voice, ‘STEPS’ is in part quoting Benjamin Franklin: “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. A recurring theme in this album, cultivating growth and celebrating the process to success.
