Apropos is an international recording artist who has been seen and heard across the world, on NBC’s The Voices, Pitchfork, The Fader, Complex, Entertainment Weekly, NPR, Billboard, Elton John’s Rocket Hour & more.
His debut solo album Verse(atility) was released to critical acclaim in late 2018, including praise from legends such as Elton John and KEM.
Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Apropos moved to Southfield, Michigan at the age of five. His family later settled in Farmington where he graduated from the Farmington school system.His grandfather sang in a church choir and was in a Doo-wop group in the 1940s. Apropos’ father was a pastor and singer in church, while his brother was in a Christian rap group called “God’s Army” from 1998 to 2006. He began taking piano lessons at the age of seven. By age 10, he wrote his first piece of music– a classical piece.
At an early age, Apropos knew he wanted to perform. “I knew when I started writing my own pieces and started closing the book, and you know, just getting in front of there– vocalizing and playing chords and stuff like that– that’s when I knew one day I was going to be a musician.”
He is the former lead singer for the Michigan-based band Soul Divide. In Summer 2016, he parted ways with the band to pursue his solo career in music. He even left his full-time job to focus solely on his musical career. That’s how passionate and strongly he feels about his music.
Apropos will be featured vocalist for Black Hand Side Side performing in “VIBE Sessions with jessica Care moore” on February 25th in the Carr Center Performance Studio.
