Featured artist: A.K.A. Peckerwood the D.J. – Up and Coming Artist you Must Hear!

As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist A.K.A. Peckerwood the D.J. 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, A.K.A. Peckerwood the D.J.! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

A.K.A. Peckerwood the D.J.: I grew up in a musical family. When I was 14 my cousin Bob Peikert let me join his band onstage to sing Skynyrd's Sweet Home Alabama and from there on I was hooked!

Promote your songs everywhere you can.

What about concerts? Do you play live?

I have been lucky enough to play shows with the bands Soil, Bobaflex and Riddlebox while in my band days. I am currently working with a few agencies planning some 2019 shows in the Midwest area.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

I told you!

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I am currently putting together some EDM versions of a few songs I wrote while I was with the band Revolution X. I have an album currently being mastered due out in March 2019.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Oh yeah. The upside of this would be having a great promotion team and media reach. The downside would be the exhausting roller coaster ride of non stop touring and being away from Family for long periods.

Any last words?

Fondy. A-Million. Lady Jo Jo. Merf Music Group. My kids and Kaydo Potatoe. My street team and Steph.
