This is a music video by wav. It’s got that Asian influence that has a vibe that’s haunting yet alluring. It’s hard to explain. You’ll just have to listen to this.
I support anyone who follows their mission in life. I believe we all have a calling. Some know what their calling is at a very young age. Others, like myself, go through many stages until they find it. Regardless on how long it takes, I know we can get there if we just don’t stop.
wav is someone who is following his mission. And I want to show support for the Asian community. Here is a short bio and his music video.
wav is an LA based artist and producer. He describes his recordings and production as “an attempt to reflect the goals, values and mentality of his Asian roots”, from instrument selection to the “stream of consciousness” like approach to the recording process – wav is authentically different. All songs tend to be a one or two take freestyle, cut together by his audio engineer in the spirit of self-acceptance and the embracing of one’s imperfections.
wav was born in the Bay Area to a single mother and was raised for a short time in his grandparents’ home. The family stayed under the same roof awaiting the return of his father from Africa. His grandfather is a Canton-region immigrant and his grandmother is a native of Oakland Chinatown. wav believes this era of his life instilled the resilience he would require to “go on living”.
With foundations in Hip-Hop/R&B, and later influenced by a variety of musical styles – Folk, Alternative and Electronic to name a few- listeners note a rawness to wav’s haunting vocals making wav’s music refreshingly cathartic.
