Marty Grimes
Marty Grimes
Marty Grimes was born and raised in Berkeley, California, resulting in his music being heavily influenced by Bay Area sound and style. Beginning his music career in high school, Marty Grimes rapped under different aliases until settling on Marty--a childhood nickname given to him by his father. In order to pursue his music on a higher level, Marty Grimes attended Ex'pression College for Digital Arts and graduated in June 2012 with a BA in Applied Science for Sound Arts. After graduating from Ex'pression College, Marty had the opportunity to go on three nationwide tours with rapper and childhood friend G-Eazy; giving him more experience and continued motivation to create a professional quality sound of his own that his listeners could relate to. After returning from the tours, Marty is continuing to pursue his rapping career alongside producer Kevin "KDE" Beggs, a colleague who graduated the same year as Marty. Now as 2014 is beginning, Marty is ready to release his most recent work which will showcase his dedication and truly represent him as an unique artist.
Wes Period
Wes Period
West Coast artist/producer, Wes Period was raised in La Habra California but found roots in Los Angeles when he began seriously making music in the early 2010s. Bringing a bright and often hazy lyrical flow to a variety of production approaches, Wes honed his musical style on early releases like 2011’s Friendly Fire EP and early singles, often centered around partying and the always sunny California lifestyle. In 2015, he dropped both the Photosynthesis EP and the “Champaign Champion” single along with being handpicked as an opener by rapper Vic Mensa to open several of his shows. In 2016 he teamed up with Ye Ali and singer Tommy Genesis to form the side project baby.daddi, releasing a four-song EP that summer. With more exposure than ever before, he completed work on his long-labored debut LP, Late Bloomer, which saw release in early 2017.

Wes’ music fell into the hands of hit songwriter, Justin Tranter (Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, DNCE), who quickly signed Wes to Justin’s record label, Facet Records in partnership with Interscope Records. Since then, he’s released a track called “Trap Star” and his song “Big Bag” was picked as the theme song for “Ball in the Family,”based around the life of LA Laker’s point guard, Lonzo Ball. His mixtape “Pretty Words” will be coming Feb. 16th on Interscope Records.
