Beats By P

I named myself “Beats By P” on purpose - I want to be known for my beats and unique sound. Music is a form of self-expression but it also gives me a peace of mind. In essence, it’s a form of therapy. It is a feeling that I cannot describe. From beating on top of desks, rapping in class, to making my own music that people can listen to any platform - this is just proof that anything is possible.


When making music, I did not want it to come from the stance of guns, violence, and drugs. I do not represent any of those in reality so I wanted to stay true to myself. With that in mind, I wanted to create music that I could grind to, find peace in, and also represent a good bit of my upbringings and challenges through life. I want my music to be authentic and raw in its feel. I want my sound to be diverse but distinct in the way that it connects with people in unique ways.

 
 

The Sound

My sound is inspired by a collective of great artists from different genres - but it’s definitely inspired by my upbringings. I grew up baptist and I am from the low-country where the Geechie-Gullah culture is prominent. Storytelling, hand claps, hums, soulful cries, and foot-stomps are the heart of genuine musical sounds that make work of arts. It speaks to the culture - for the culture. 


I played the drums in my church, with also having some experience on the piano and acoustic guitar. I sung on the choir growing up and even did all country chorus for a couple of years through middle school. After traveling to different states and gaining exposure about others, I was influenced by their music and grew to love new artists that my friends would put me on from time.

Check out these playlists created over time of some of my favorite artists and sounds.
