Felege


BIOGRAPHY

Born in Ethiopia and raised in the suburbs of Boston, Felege grew up listening to a range of Ethiopian and American artists. Though music has always been a big part of his life, Felege’s entrance as an artist wasn’t until 2013, during his freshman year at Brown University. Inspired by the Brown hip hop community, he helped create a series of cypher videos with the goal of sparking  a freestyle video tradition across college campuses. In early 2017, he directed and co-wrote Sober Octaves, a visual album with computer-generated interludes and live-action narratives. The project was accompanied by a 5-track EP and combined his love for music, film, and animation.

After graduating with a degree in Computer Science and Visual Arts in May 2017, Felege took several months to work on visuals and tracks for his upcoming EP, Dextro. In April 2018, he released its first track, “Henchmen,” featuring fellow musicians and classmates Warner Meadows and Ezemdi, who both played integral roles in the creation of Dextro. The project took influence from artists including Kendrick Lamar, Teddy Afro, BROCKHAMPTON, and Busta Rhymes. In early 2018, Felege started working in the visual effects industry, using his free time to work on personal visual projects. The full Dextro EP is coming soon.
