More often than not, things do not go according to plan. There will always be bumps in the roads and hurdles in the way, and sometimes they become overwhelming that one has to stop, take a step back, and reassess. Taking breaks is not detrimental to the quest for success, and sometimes may even be necessary for it. As in the case of Arthur Sanchez, taking a break was exactly what he needed to come back stronger.
Born in Mexico and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Arthur had been a music artist aspiring to make waves in the industry through his diverse tunes. With his heart in Native American hip-hop and Latin trap music, he hoped to change the generic sound of hip-hop. He had already captivated many people across the globe and was expected to continue to spread his influence further as he moved forward.
Arthur began his journey in the world of music at only four years old, with an intense love for the melodies that made him feel giddy when he listened. As soon as he was able, he put his effort towards working on weekends to save up money to afford a time slot at a professional recording studio.
I’ve Been Watching You is the title of the first song he ever recorded. His perseverance and hard work paid off, and he was able to record at the UGMX Studios in San Jose, California. The most impressive part of it all is that he did that by himself at only 12 years old.
Since that first track, he started growing his name, LilAmMusic and pumping out tracks for his fans. He put his music on his SoundCloud and other social media accounts and was steadily gaining traction. Still, his rise to fame came to a sudden, grinding halt upon the unexpected death of his grandfather only a year later. Heartbroken and uninspired, he opted to take a break from music and disappeared from the eyes of the public. Eventually, his name and his music started to fade out of attention.
He came back stronger than ever in 2018, after a five-year absence from the music industry. With a new look, a new style, and a new name, the former LilAmMusic evolved to become Arthur Sanchez, and now Arthur is on the fast track back to stardom. Right out of hiatus, he managed to land features with artists from Colombia, Slovakia, Toronto, and New Jersey without waiting too long. Without spoiling anything about the tracks recorded, he teased that they will be released sometime this year. As the public’s next up-and-coming favorite artist, his sound continues to evolve, and he continues to pump out new tunes for his loyal fans.
Now that he is back in the music industry and is once again experiencing the highs of doing what he loves the most, he started a company using his own name with the goal of helping younger aspiring artists with fewer resources. If they put their mind to it, there will always be a way to realize it. Just as he did for himself, he wants to guide them and teach them ways to build their presence online and make names for themselves.
