My Artist name is foleone. (Foh - lee - on ). Like the godfather. I got my name from a homie out the penitentiary I was doing time with. My real name is fredo I’m from Washington DC. born in caver terrace NE and raised in Potomac gardens SE. I’m from where nigga kill you just because you looked at him. I grew up in foster care & running the streets. Youngest of 9 kids by my mother. I grew up listening to geto boys and lil boosie. I love music because it’s the only thing in life that’s positive that I realized I was good at. I was always a f* up. Getting suspended, arrested, jumped all types of crazy sh*. Music has always offered a balance in my life, going through the hardships of life such as foster care , teen life, juvenile incarceration and much more. I never let it break me. What makes me different than the rest in my opinion is my versatility and my bold lyrical cadence. Having the ability to gravitate with the flow of the beat.Also i feel as though it’s my ambition to succeed. My hunger is equal to my struggle. I will be great. Having the feeling of knowing I get to show my mother that her youngest son a legend. The feeling of knowing that I’m beating the odds and not feeding into statistics. In 5 years I see myself in Dubai w my future wife and kids on the golden sand enjoying the fruits of my labor. I wanna be the first one in my family to break poverty. To break the chains. I bring hope. I bring reason. A reason for change. A reason to stand on all 10 as one. Anything is possible in this world. you jus gotta want it. You gotta put in that foot work. I want to be remembered by my integrity and my loyalty.

"Mastering the Art of Reading Music: Understanding Treble and Bass Clefs"
Reading music is an essential skill for any musician, as it allows them to understand and perform written compositions. The process of reading music involves interpreting the symbols and memorandum set up on a distance of music in order to play the correct notes on an instrument. At its utmost introductory position, reading music involves understanding the layout of a distance of music, including the staff, clefs, and note values. The staff, which is the foundation of distance music, is made up of five vertical lines and four spaces, on which notes are placed.
Songs Without Words
Introduction When I was in the Bok the band leader Andy Marshall described instrumentals as "Songs Without Words" and we had a few of those, though none made it to our demo tape that you can hear on Soundcloud link below (the pic of my ugly mug) if you feel like listening to something John Peel described as "primitive" and Stiff Records just sent us a pre-printed rejection letter.

Polymathic Actor, Recording Artist, and Filmmaker Amir Royale Releases New Single “Phonics” (feat. Sydney Palmer and Declan Sheehy-Moss)
From Amir Royale I don't think I've ever really felt well-understood by my peers or mentors. Most my life I was outcasted for my passionate and exuberant outlook. "Phonics" was a way for me to define what that felt like — but, furthermore — showcase to others how to combat it. I've had this song sitting in a vault since before the pandemic. Thus, I recruited some of my favorite people in this whole wide world to share the stage for one of my last few "harder" stories to tell. Or, well — at least I think so. Declan Sheehy-Moss (a good friend of the next J. Dilla and Robert Glasper - Cisco Swank); as well as Sydney Kate Palmer (an NYU student of mine) both bring this so beautifully to life — and, I don't know — I just hope you finally get it one day. Maybe, just maybe — I even pray I'll still be here on Earth to know finally what it feels like. That's if God decides I'm lucky enough. I love and miss you all, always. Walk good, take care. 🌺❤️🩹🌺
