H*Wood first broke onto the music scene when he was 22-years-old with his hit song, “COULD IT BE YOU,” in 2010. Ever since, he has been gaining momentum and was even invited to perform at this year’s Pre X Games Launch Party.
H*Wood was so excited to perform at the event and said that he felt blessed that his fans embraced his track, “W.O.R.K.,” which was also embraced by the X Games market. The invitation to perform came at the perfect time, as it allows H*Wood to experience the X Games for the first time, and it happens to be in his native Colorado. H*Wood mentioned that he’s going to be on the lookout for Shaun White … and that he could tell the snowboarders a part from everyone else, due to their goggle tans.
2013 is looking bright for H*Wood, as he’s already in the midst of promoting his debut album,FIRST LIGHT, which dropped on November 1, 2012. Definitely check out the mixtape version of the album, “MILE HIGH MIX,” which was mixed by DJ Bedz. Not only is DJ Bedz the OFFICIAL DJ OF THE DENVER NUGGETS and radio host at 95.7 ‘The Party,’ but also, he’s H*Wood’s longtime friend that H*Wood has known since he was 17-years-old. H*Wood said of DJ Bedz, “He has been involved every step of the way. He’s my biggest supporter.”
While working hard to make great music and testing different sounds, H*Wood has found his niche within the industry, making fusion records, and he hopes to be known as a ‘fusion great.’ Within his music, you can hear him fuse rap with elements of EDM, Dubstep, live music and more.
Helping him evolve his sound are incredible artists he has collaborated with, including: Red Lion, Adrian X (Drake’s lead guitarist) and Eddie Fisher (OneRepublic). OneRepublic is based in H*Wood’s home state of Colorado and he and Fisher met last summer, when they wrote the first song for H*Wood’s album, First Light. With both artists residing in Colorado, the unfathomable shooting in Aurora personally affected both artists. In fact, First Light is an ode to H*Wood’s hometown of Aurora. H*Wood said, “‘Aurora’ means morning, the first light of day. I want my music to be the light. I hope to inspire, move and motivate people.”
