With deep roots coming from a military background, Dmo has never necessarily settled on one place that he would call home. Although the better half of his life was spent in California, Dmo comes from a background in which he moved around multiple times, being that his father was in the Military. It’s something he’s proud of, and a story he embraces.
He originally began putting rhymes together at the age of 15. Using his literary skill-set, he found an ability to fit in with the those who looked like him. Freestyles lead the lunch tables and several mixtapes became the topic of conversation around the school.
However, it wasn’t until he landed in college, where he realized his innate ability to write. His style grew, his content changed, his cadences matured.
In 2012, he put out his third and most receptive studio recorded album entitled Emotions; boasting several blog appearances, radio interviews, and local notoriety. This was all possible by way of San Diego, CA.
However, as he understood his growth, Dmo realized it was once again time to relocate as which was fitting to the habits of his lifestyle. In the late summer of 2014, Dmo uprooted himself, this time alone, and moved to Los Angeles, California.
In 2016, Dmo released an EP titled "Here I Go," allowing him to secure more stage time and build a fan base in Los Angeles. The project included 5 records that showcased his lyrical abilities and range as an artist.
As he put himself other talented artists, he began to grow. He was developing from the artist perspective. He learned to offer more cinematic raps, while condensing words.
He is, in every sense of the words, a Solo Recording Artist. His content somewhat goes against the common laws of trendy hip hop. Yet somehow, he retains a special element which leaves room for a cult-like following.
Supporters have often drawn parallels to his ability to relate to real life scenarios like a J.Cole. They’ve taken note of his narrative abilities like that of a Dom Kennedy. Fans have also found appeal in his descriptive records which advocate emotion such as a Wale.
Since his latest project in 2016, Dmo has been writing and recording for a few new projects with plans to release in 2018. He has released several singles since then and has been working to grow his Indie Label - The Great Society.
His next project is set for a summer release and is appropriately titled "Winter Summer".
