Born in Newark, Irvington New Jersey raised, the emcee known simply as Ess Vee has emerged onto the music scene equipped with multi-talents like Artists we haven't seen in years. With unconditional love for entertainment, Ess Vee is also equally talented; and in high demand for his work, as a songwriter, engineer and producer. As a young person with a drive and hunger for music, Ess Vee began his journey as an intern at the once renowned Jive Records out of New York City. Fortunate enough to flow and freely function, throughout a "hit" music making environment, Ess Vee instantly became motivated. More determined than ever, Ess Vee began self teaching which now he mixes, masters and conducts his own Production sessions. Already giving back, when his schedule permits, he extends such quality studio services to other potential Artists whose dreams usually don't reflect their financial means.
In the midst of working on his first album “The Veelude” Ess Vee was involved in a near life ending car accident which briefly postponed his aspirations, career and dreams. During the rehabilitation period, what he considers constructive down time, Ess Vee developed as he describes a 'by any means necessary' attitude - realizing how precious life is, he at times refers to himself as a “1Lifer”; which simply means taking nothing for granted and staying positive knowing firsthand life is too short to not always love and enjoy it. Three projects later (The Veelude, The Anecdote: Memoirs of S. Victor, & The CarePackage), Ess Vee has been gaining attention from some of the most social Hip Hop sites and music mediums around the world. It caught the the eye and ear of European Artist, Angelou who requested the collaborative efforts of Ess Vee, who now features on her upcoming single "Lovetrack" coming soon. Inspired by life events and social issues which exist in our present culture, Ess Vee is able to depict a vivid image of its reality into his music. Seeing similarities artistically displayed in film and television, Ess Vee recently challenged his artistry as an Actor in feature films such as the Academy Award Winner Birdman, Finally Famous, along with Television projects Blue Bloods, Elementary, Power, Orange Is the New Black and the Law & Order franchise.
Ess Vee recently inked a new deal with The Assoc. Music Group, a division of The Assoc. Entertainment this January, 2015. Ess Vee anticipates the release of his new anthem single "Dollar To My Name" by newcomer Producer, AimeZ, followed by his next level Mixtape "Good Times Good Vibes" produced by the talented Tecknowledgy. It's been said "Good Times, Good Vibes" is his best work to date, featuring incredible collaborations with the likes of Whiz Khalifa and Mac Miller camp Artists' Choo Jackson and Beedie, also with newcomers MoRuf, A-Natural and the beautiful voices of duo ladies 185. Pre-release opportunities on iTunes and Bandcamp this Summer!
