WTFTXNY is an artist who keeps his identity secret on the internet for branding purposes. He grew up being influenced by watching many super heroes, and being somewhat of a nerd. His musical interests sparked from classic rock that he would listen to with his family in car rides.
WTFTXNY’s first musical encounter was at the age of 4. He was given a keyboard, for someone at a young age he just randomly pressed buttons that played pre-recordings, and he fell in love with certain sounds.
Fast forward two years, he got a drum kit, he wasn’t really that good at it but after learning piano, drums and his father got him a guitar and was able to sign him up for guitar lessons, but eventually he stopped taking them because he self taught himself based on ear and not by studying music theory. The first song he learned to play was “Sunshine Of Your Love By Cream”.
