Sean King is a jack of all trades with the amount of creative stuff he finds himself doing in Richmond, VA. Some of his many talents can be displayed through photoshoots, music videos, music, acting, comedy, and directing
Artists often have name changes whether it be an alter ego, something never heard of before, or just...a name. For Sean, it started out as "Aj Biggs". Unfortunately, an artist beat him to 1 million views and we know how that goes. But, it didn't shy Sean away from eventually using his given name.
I cut my losses and went with my real name Sean King and it’s been the best decision. - Sean King
Sean began making music in 2006 with one of his cousins. They made music off of his school laptop while playing beats from the 50 Cent: Bulletproof and Street Ballers video games.
His inspiration for his creativity is that all of it is a personal release. The whole process is creative no matter what to Sean, as long as you stay consistent in your work.
You can shape it however you want! Not being able to like draw or dance really helped me stay focused on getting how I feel across through music. That’s what influences me the most. - Sean King
Back in May, Sean and +Plus made a hot R&B/Soul single called That's the Vibe. Both of their lush vocals match up together so well. The lyrics are easy to pick up on and it's the perfect Summer vibe song. Both artists express how they want their significant other to be in their energy and how they both enjoy their time together.
Overcooked Noodles, another single by Sean, teaches you how to keep up with his rapping skills and lyrics. It's a fast-paced track filled with quirky metaphors, similes, and a banging instrumental to back it all up. Sean actually wrote this song while bleaching his hair.
It created a whole new persona strictly looking like a Cracker Jack box version of Sisqo. - Sean King
Creating for Sean becomes an endless routine of searching through type beats to find a certain pocket he's looking for. It eventually comes all together of course.
Once I find something I build a hook-up and record it which gets me excited to write the verses. Then mixing it the best I can before I listen to it 42 times and see what I can fix. - Sean King
I want the world to know that it’s okay to be your full authentic self! Life is too short to be pretending to be someone that you’re not when the real you is so much cooler! Also the government is corrupt and money isn’t real. - Sean King
In the meantime, Sean has a little ep he's working on just for fun while he plans out videos for his last project, We'll Cry About this Later which was released back in February. Sean also looks forward to doing more skits and having all-around content with his face on it.
What are my goals as an artist? I just want a solid core fan base and be able to travel and do what I love through the arts. I’d love to perform outside of the country and learn more about other cultures hands on. The goal is that the music will help me get there. - Sean King
