day13n

Bio

Toronto-born, and currently based in Auckland, day13n grew up sandwiched between the wealthy east end neighbourhood 'The Beaches' and a TCHC subsidised housing community. The oldest of four, day13n spent his childhood raising his three younger sisters, while his parents struggled with unemployment, substance abuse, and his immigrant mother attempted to manage while his father was in prison, and absent.

By the age of 14, day13n had developed serious substance use issues, and was struggling with mental illness, which resulted in violent altercations with his father, and inevitably day13n being kicked out of his family home, and living on his own by the age of 16, dropping out of school, and entering the workforce.

For the next ten years, day13n worked to pull himself out of that pit, with therapy, self reflection, and medication. At his darkest points, he found solace in punk, and angry hip-hop music, but it was messages of hope, and belief in a brighter future embedded in the lyrics of artists like Eminem and Greenday that left a lasting impact.

day13n takes inspiration from a vast array of artists, across genres, and is especially drawn to the unique, experimental sounds of people like JPEGMAFIA, BROCKHAMPTON, Injury Reserve, Death Grips, Kendrick Lamar, Vince Staples, K-OS, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and Queen.

day13n is an artist who fearlessly embraces himself, free of judgement, and refuses to be defined by conventions or societal norms. As an Experimental Punk-Rapper, he challenges the boundaries of musical genres, and aims to provoke his audiences to question their definitions of other people, music, and themselves.

At the core of day13n’s artistic vision is a message of individuality. He encourages listeners to take pride in their uniqueness, and love themselves radically, as he shares his journey of recovery, from dark beginnings, to a bright future.

Drawing inspiration from a vast array of musical genres, day13n defies all attempts at categorisation, seamlessly incorporating elements from punk, rock, jazz, EDM, and more into his raps, to create a truly unique, and eclectic sonic experience.

As day13n continues to craft his musical narrative, gearing up to the release of his debut album 7/137/ - an autobiographical concept album that guides listeners through his own journey of self-betterment, and healing; meeting them at their own darkest points, and openly discussing how he was able to find the light within himself - day13n promises to leave a lasting mark on the music industry with his unapologetic weirdness, and captivating storytelling.

Be prepared to dive head first into raw vulnerability, in a world where genres and categories no longer exist, and authenticity reigns supreme.
