Demun was first drawn to the music world at the age of 3. No remembering which came first dancing or walking, his mother would put on records of artist ranging from The Commodores, Hall & Oates, and Marvin Gaye to Smoky Robinson, Air Supply, and Michael Jackson. He would dance to all of them. After seeing Michael Jackson dance, Demun was changed forever. He would learn and mimic Jacksons movements to perfecton and perform them to his family. Demun’s first big performance, at age 8, was break dancing at a talent show in the cafeteria of Gray Elementary School. In his teen years, Demun pursued his passion for dance and music becoming a member of the dance group PSD-Power Supply Dancers. They performed at big festivals and concerts, opening for artist such as Run DMC, C&C Music Factory, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince to name a few. After a brief stint as a background dancer for a rap group based out of Atlanta called Prime Suspect, comprised of Danny Boone and Steaknife, Demun was motivated by the skill and precision of their writing and performance. It helped give him the courage to make a life for himself in music by beginning to write his own songs.
