: Eric “Nexis” Garris grew up in the Washington D.C. metro area. ”Being raised by my grandparents and my aunt gave me a vast range of musical influence early on”. “My style captures the intensity of the streets, and directly identifies with the impulsive logic of todays youth. I pride myself on making socially conscious yet disturbingly controversial music that moves people”. “I do this because I love it and because I desire to be one of the many voices that will reach our society in the approaching years to come”.
