Coming from a complicated past, Walter Weekes says that he had to help his family and see himself through high school. He talks openly about his feelings about life. “I have seen it all in this life! From going to bed on an empty stomach, being thrown out of our rented house, to sleeping out in the cold. My family didn’t have the financial means to support my music dreams.

But, I have always wanted to work my way as an independent artist. I love my freedom.”
“Growing up in Atlanta as one of America’s music cities with many recording facilities has helped me. I have learned so much and have been able to find my way into the competitive music industry. Most of the top artists were where I was at some point and they conquered all the barriers to become music icons,” said Weekes as he reminisces about his music journey. At 20 years of age, Weekes has greater dreams and aspirations for more singles and hits in the future. He hopes to establish his own music label to practice his music production skills and grow his career.
