Anh Nguyen (born on September 27th, 1991) is a young individual filled with goals & ambitions towards the music business. Anh is known by his stage name Xeraph, (formally known as Azure Drake). Born in Vietnam, but fully raised in the suburbs of Raleigh, North Carolina by his strict & conservative parents, Anh was not your typical southern boy. As he grew older, he gained the power of independence & with the help of his friends & supporters, a career in music was what Anh wanted to persue. There's nothing that can stop him from being successful in his future with his knowledge of graphic design, audio & video production. Anh is not content just with producing music, he is also persuing a career as a recording artist. His style of music consists of Crunk, Hip Hop & Electronic music with an energetic blast of lyrical content. After graduating from Knightdale High School in 2009, Anh's place of higher education is at The Art Institute of Atlanta in Georgia. As an audio major at the college & currently completing his bachelor's degree, Anh's journey to fame & success is far from over. Philosophy: I strongly believe music comes from within & it has infinite possibilities. Every individual has their own way of expressing themselves especially in music. The fact is that nobody is the same & each of us has a story to tell. I also believe that music for a person depends on their background, lifestyle, culture, etc. & that is why music comes in different styles & genres. As for me, music is a way of releasing my thoughts & putting them into lyrics. I go through many obstacles & experiences in life, both good & bad, so I decided to be creative by just letting it out & start writing about what comes to mind at that time. Music is life, entertainment & it's also your best friend. It taught me how to live, maintain & survive. Music is love, music is hate, music is every emotion mankind can possibily think of. I cannot imagine how this world we live in will be if music never existed in the beginning. Mission: I want to show the world my utmost creativity, & use the world as my colossal-sized canvas. As a music producer/composer & as an artist, I put my all into my creative endeavors, & because of that my music shows depthness, uniqueness & eccentricity. My goal is to stand out & separate myself from all the others, & to become the next big thing. Succeeding in the music industry & building strong, communicative relationships towards the people within the business is one of my top priorities. I also want to become a positive role model & an inspiration towards my generation, showing them that anything is achievable if you put your mind, body & spirit into it. I have a long way to go & there will be more challenges ahead in my future, but if I put God first in my life, absolutely nothing will stand in my way. This is just the beginning & I'm on my way of making history.
