Weigh In: Should Voli Quit His Day Job?
“You know the Greeks didn’t write obituaries. They only asked one question after a man died: ‘Did he have passion?’”
A native of New Jersey, Voli grew up with an affinity for the arts. Getting his musical start as a rapper, Volihoned his lyricism while internalizing the tastes of his favorite producers of the era. Voli focused on rapping for several years before deciding to shelf his lyrical talents in order to cultivate his production. After mastering Hip Hop production, he worked on developing his style, introducing more Pop, Rhythmic, & Rock into the mix, expanding into a sound with an individual and distinctive style. Despite this growth, years of producing songs to suit the needs of other artists and struggling to find placements led Voli to realize there was no one better to get on his tracks than himself. The hunger to share his vision as an all-encompassing artist began to grow; Volifelt that people like him want to hear music from someone like them. His point of view captures the struggling artist, the college grad wondering how to find a job in this economy, the worker in the cubicle counting down the minutes until 5:00 – anyone who has felt like they’ve put their dreams on hold to deal with reality. Now ready to create his own reality and inspire others to do the same, Voli is embarking on a true artistic journey as a producer, songwriter, and lyricist. Glass Doors, Voli’s debut sampler, is just the beginning… join him on his musical Odyssey.
