Born and raised in New Hampshire, Smizz grew up with a mother who loved soul and folk. His father was into older music such as Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles. An avid vinyl collector, his dad eventually handed down the records to Smizz. Smizz’s older siblings introduced him to hip hop artists such as Nas and Jay-Z.
As an early teen, Smizz drew influence from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, and J. Cole.
Smizz began releasing solo music exclusively on SoundCloud as early as 2013, at the age of 15.
At the age of 19, Smizz began producing his own beats, which eventually led to him building relationships with likeminded producers and engineers in his area.
In 2022, Smizz and his team founded Shine Music Group, their independent label dedicated to shining a light on local New Hampshire talent.
Over the past year, Smizz has been steadily building momentum. Between a constant flow of music and a slew of performances around New England, he and his team have been working to solidify the foundation of a legendary career.
