It’s not very often that hip-hop artists can say that their music blends both a New York, and LA sound. Felly, an independent hip-hop artist hailing from Trumbull, Connecticut, however, is the definition of just that. Over the course of the last eight years, Felly has found his sound and developed an enormous fan base from coast to coast.
From first making beats on a laptop in his basement in Connecticut, Felly built a large YouTube from selling beats. After releasing two solo projects Waking Up to Sirens and Milk and Sugar, he set off to Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California majoring in Music Industry. The projects featured Dreamville signee Ari Lennox and frequent collaborator, GYYPS. Accompanying this, Felly began to perform at shows & filming music videos out in LA.
With the help of roommate and artist GYYPS, Felly began working with more talented producers for the release of his next mixtape This Shit Comes in Waves. The project, which included hits like “Gorilla” and “7th King” caught more attention & grew his fan base. Over Christmas break from school, Felly sold out a hometown show in Fairfield, Connecticut in front of 700 people. Later on that year, he appeared at SXSW and hit the road for a 20+ city headlining tour throughout the country. The tour concluded with a massive sold out show in Chicago, Illinois with 1,200 people.[wpex click for full bio]
Last summer, Felly released his first EP, titled Young Fel EP, which featured hit single “Desert Eagle”. Soon after, Felly took off on The Mermaid Gang Tour nearing 40 dates nationwide, including the historic El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, LA. The tour accompanied sold out shows in Toads Place in New Haven, CT and The Catalyst in Santa Cruz, CA, both with 1,100 tickets.
Recently, Felly has relocated from LA to New York City, where he has been gearing up for the release of his next album Wild Strawberries due out later summer 2017. Features on the highly anticipated album include Konshens, Cousin Stizz, and GYYPS, with production from Dre Moon, Dot Da Genius, YoG$, and more.[/wpex]
