Emerging out of Raleigh, NC, alternative hip hop artist Kinnecom grew up performing and writing his own music at a very young age. He has written/recorded multiple albums, toured nationally, and worked with artists and producers nationwide. In 2011, Kinnecom recorded his solo instrumental album gaining him recognition from artists around the country. This recognition brought him to move across the country to record an album with Drew Fulk and sign his first recording contract with Indianola Records during his stint with post-hardcore outfit, Wealth In Water. After Wealth In Water disbanded in 2013, Kinnecom and fellow members formed Motiv (formerly named Motivational) before heading out on two national tours and recorded their debut album in mid-2014.
