“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
― Winston S. Churchill
The Midwest is one of the biggest hotbeds of music in this country. Although a grand vessel of talent, many of these talents are succumb to the violence of the streets on the rise in the game. Everyday in the news the numbers keep growing and the youth keeps losing.
While many see the difficulty as a wall for opportunity, there are some who see the opportunity in the difficulty. Today we celebrate 27year old Chicago native Dawon Mitchell, also known as the artist FASHO FLOW.
Born in the early 90’s Fasho Flow took to music with an instant. He grew up learning thru his neighborhood the rise of the greats. Having absorbed a priceless education he adapted his skills toward songwriting and rapping. After growing a local buzz with his contributions and attempts, he began expanding his music by networking with people who had bigger and better outlets.
“Everything happens for a reason, I am a true believer from example”, says Fasho Flow. As he began to network in the music scene he came across a gentleman by the name of Marquis Harris. Marquis at the time happen to be a Midwest talent scout and in house producer for New York City label AFFLUENT RECORDS. Fasho realized this was his big opportunity and quickly broke thru the crowd to hand Marquis his demo tracks.
Marquis liked what he heard and naturally pass on the demo to AFFLUENT RECORDS CEO Oscar Sanchez. “I loved what I heard when I listened to the music, Fasho had a lot of promise but needed artist development and a home to put his music out so he could grow his fan base so I signed him and have been working with him remotely developing recording etc ever since. I am very happy to see that he is now ready to explode and make an impact on a major level. The music speaks for itself.,” says Sanchez.
