Belonging to Detroit, Michigan, Chanz Miller is an up-and-coming music artist and entrepreneur who inspires millions of people every day with his rags-to-riches story. After finishing school, Chanz decided to follow his heart and dreams which most people do not dare to do, and made a great fortune. Since then, he started his music career after he had his first daughter and has been “paying the bills with his guitar.”
Making music and putting together catchy melodies since grade school, Chanz believes, “We are the music-makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.” Because he believes that music-making is equivalent to dreaming, he has followed his passion with all his heart. Putting all his efforts into his musical career has paid him back significantly in the form of money and recognition. Having over a million views on YouTube and releasing multiple records that took the internet by storm, Chanz’s story is an inspiring one for young musicians and artists.
Being only 26 years of age, Chanz’s success story is really inspiring for young entrepreneurs who want to make a living out of their passion for music. At an interview, Chanz was reported saying, “Belief in yourself and your music will always earn you success.” It is a great message to young and developing music artists who want to make a living out of their music and do not have the self-belief that it takes to make a career in the music industry.
Chanz is also a family-oriented musician – having two children; a boy, and a girl. He is the second oldest in his own family and has been into music ever since childhood. Going through rough passages during his youth, Chanz never let go of his passion for music and always dreamt big. In an interview, while talking about his journey towards music, “Some nights music is your only best friend, and you should never forget about those nights.”
Also, being a part of a band called “The Real StackBoiz” for ten years, Chanz has found his music family in this bunch of people. Even though they all have their ongoing solo projects, their band still stays and plays together on various occasions. Chanz always has great things to say about his bandmates because not only do they play together, but they are also great friends and make the most amazing memories.
One of the turning points in Chanz’s life is the killing of one of his closest friends in his hometown on July 4th, 2016. According to Chanz, “the death of someone puts things into perspective for most people.” After his friend’s untimely demise, Chanz had a significant awakening that he needed to use his musical talent while helping people around him and creating a loving and wholesome community. He realized that life is indeed too short. He needs to start taking every opportunity available to take his entrepreneurial and musical journey forward.
Chanz has big dreams for his musical and entrepreneurial career. He wants to work with all the big names in the music industry and make his character even more significant. Being his director and music video editor, Chanz is a one-person army and believes in the beauty of following one’s dreams. Always working with himself and his ideas, Chanz knows how to be self-sufficient and is solely responsible for his fantastic music career. His primary motivation comes from being able to support his family and giving them the best of everything in the world. Father to a boy and a baby girl, Chanz wants to fulfill all their wishes and provide them with a life he has always dreamed of.
Chanz has made outstanding achievements in the music industry and wants to make many more. Being YouTube famous and having a massive fan following of his music, Chanz has worked with several renowned music artists and stars. He has also released music with some plaque-earning producers such as Helluva and Antzz Beatz, which has only added to his already-existing good name in the music industry.
Growing up, Chanz had role models and inspirations in the music industry – the footsteps of whom he followed excellently. He wanted to live in the legacy of and become as big a name as Lil Wayne, Young Thug, Future, and Hot Boys. Looking up to these people and believing in the power of his music, Chanz worked towards his goals day and night – and has finally started receiving his reward for all the hard work he has put into his music career.
While addressing his fans at an event, Chanz said the following about upcoming entrepreneurs, “All it takes is passion, patience, and persistence in order to become a successful entrepreneur.” Like Chanz, many upcoming musicians want to turn their music into a business that pays them back for their efforts and passion. Chanz’s life story proves that it is not only possible but also a great decision.
In every interview, Chanz advises his music fans to follow their dreams because that is indeed the best way to live one’s life. There are moments in his life when he wants to give up too, but he keeps on going because of his unfulfilled dreams. He says, “It’s not necessary to do great things, but to make small things great.” Chanz’s main focus in life is to concentrate and work on his career because many people would want to be in his place.
By understanding his privilege and position in the music society from a young age and making the best use of it, Chanz inspires millions of fans every day to do better in their music careers. He usually talks about his journey from a small town to stardom. He never leaves out the fact that all it takes is self-belief and guts to make that first move and step into the industry. After that, your music becomes your representation and your career path. When you follow your dreams, work does not seem like a burden anymore – which is how work should be for everyone, in the words of musician and entrepreneur Chanz Miller.
