I know these days I’m on your mind
This is Jon Bailey, an amazing voice actor. Jon did the opening track for my album, I Am Rocom. I had no idea he was also the voice behind Honest Trailers. Nice to see him show up on my Tumblr feed of all places.
sunshinee-doee asked: Hey, I was just wondering what happen to chs? Why the change? Your music is dope by the way.
For those that don’t know, CHS is short for Closed Heart Surgery, my old Hip-Hop project I started with my friend back in 2005. I released 2 albums on iTunes under that name, The Unloved and The Blue Girl Diaries. My latest album, I Am Rocom, released under my emcee name, Rocom and dropped a few months ago.
CHS only lasted as a duo for about 2 years. The other emcee in the group, Ross G, had to give up rapping for his career in the medical field. As an artist/designer, I was able to continue making music in my free time. I continued making tracks as Closed Heart Surgery for the next 2 years, but decided it didn’t make sense without Ross. I wanted the music to represent the person making it, me, Rocom. Hence, I just go by Rocom now, not Closed Heart Surgery.
CHS had its own identity, branded as “Emo Rap” and wasn’t as broad in range. Making music as Rocom makes my style and future-track possibilities endless with no specific branding to adhere to.
Either way, I still make music and appreciate any fans of CHS that have stuck with me this long. There’s a handful of you out there and I appreciate you very much.
