SammAyOnTheBeat born in The Bronx, NY, grew up around music like most youths in his community. His influences span Gospel, Hip-Hop, R&B and Soul, through his days singing in his church to learning how to use FL Studio to craft his own sound. With no experience in playing instruments, he learned to use the tools around him and learn techniques to enhance his creativity.
From 2009 - 16 he has been responsible for engineering and producing many independent/major artist projects along his production collective ARESVP. Responsible for producing and developing a few independent artist careers like longtime collaborator Michael From The East. 2018 he released Trapped Hearts, a soulful jazzhop track that featured not only his production but vocals. It inspired him to shape his sound into something more defined and fresh.
With placements on MTV 2 shows like Girl Code, Guy Code and Team Backpack cyphers. Check out Filtered Thoughts, a collection of tracks inspired by lo-fi, hip-hop & chillhop.
