Deepertruth (John and Don) hosts Sammy Blaze - Saturday, 13 April, live on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/deeper-truth/2013/04/13/deepertruth-presents-sammy-blaze
Rap is an art of verbal expression. Born and raised Catholic, I gave my life to the service of Christ in 2001 at a retreat.
I began freestyling and performing at youth events and retreats at age 17, mostly as a joke. But since I'd always grown up accustomed to hip hop culture, I decided to write as a hobby.
About a year later, I joined Phatmass in the fall of 2003 and the dream began... The incredible journey through self-examination, questioning everything I had once just accepted, finding my individuality, and the never ending search for the Truth, has led me to this point now...
I strive to make music that reflects life and humanity in all aspects and relates universally to people of all walks of life. The joy, the pain, the struggle, all that is real, all that is within me all that I experience goes into my music, it is the window to my heart, mind and soul.
I hope to create a fusion of musical styles and lyricism, philosophical and theological thought,and all the cultures that effect me, all the while grounded and inspired by the beautiful Catholic Faith.
I speak of all that I am, I am Catholic, So I speak Catholic.
I hope to be apart of an inspired movement of Catholic artists that invade all genres and aspects of art, culture, and media in an effort to reclaim the world for the Greater Glory of God.
All things are possible....
