The Origin Story

Music has been the centre of Ceylon’s life from an early age and now he cumulates a myriad of experiences into hip hop, trap and pop music production.

Starting at the age of 7 with violin lessons being used to soften the blow of a divorce, he has studied music in a variety of ways. Throughout high school he focused on honing his skills as a trumpeter and vocalist, at University he studied Violin Performance, and most recently he completed a Music Production Mentorship course through Beat Drop, a respected Canadian-owned company. Alongside all of this he listened and listened, appreciating aspects of all genres from around the world.

Ceylon's music does not fit nicely into one genre as a result. A single track may utilize a djembe hit at the same time as a Soviet-Era synth. The end result is always cohesion, memorable melodies, and something to move your body to.
