Featured artist: AKA Peckerwood – firstname.lastname@example.org
As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist AKA Peckerwood from Fond du Lac to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…
Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, AKA Peckerwood! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
AKA Peckerwood: I grew up in a musical family. When I was 14 my cousin let me join in his band onstage to sing Lynyrd Skynyrd's Sweet Home Alabama. I was hooked. From there I jammed in a basement band with my brother who played drums. Music has always been an escape for me and helped me get through the bad times.
Promote your songs everywhere you can.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I have been lucky enough to do some shows with some great bands while in my rock and roll days. Soil, Bobaflex, Drowning Pool to name a few. With the new AKA Peckerwood album coming out I plan to play a lot of shows in 2019 in the Midwest area and am currently working with quite a few promotion agencies assisting me with this. Great people.
