C.S. Armstrong is endurance personified. The self-taught multi-instrumentalist stirs together a jambalaya of soul, blues and hip-hop that utilizes the new while resonating with the old. This special concoction of sound is priming him for something truly special, all we have to do is wait and watch.
The Houston, Texas, native grew up around music, from playing piano in his grandmother’s church to saxophone in multiple jazz bands, C.S. Armstrong was a natural. Unfortunately, his time in Houston also exposed him to a life of gang-banging that would grow increasingly dangerous for the then 19-year-old. In an attempt to escape the growing dangers of the city, Armstrong enlisted in the Army serving for eight years before landing in New York City. The Big Apple became his new home and jumping-off point for his long-awaited pursuit of a music career.
After a few years on the East Coast, Armstrong chose to relocate to Los Angeles in search of new inspirations and a solo career. He found himself in the studio with the likes of Dr. Dre, Terrace Martin and Taz Arnold, soon after his arrival, needless to say the move out West paid off. Armstrong would go on to share a barrage of singles and covers within the coming months gaining traction for his live recording sessions at Truth Studios. The powerful vocalist was sharpening his craft, making his growing fanbase salivate with each release.
