His humility and recognition to stay relevant drives his enormous ambition. Captain Pikes’s music and mindset culminates a revolutionary and/or evolved sound for the listener. As an artist, Captain Pikes loves the stage, is marketable and well suited for the international market. His vast taste in various musical styles makes creating innovative music almost effortless. Captain Pikes mentions his music as diverse, “My music sounds like me. The music is danceable. It is also smooth and allows you an opportunity to chill with it as well. My music is descriptive; it helps you to visualize what I’ve been through and where I’m headed!” Encouraged by his manager, Talent Expert, Daryl 'DJ' Jackson, “To revolutionize the hip-hop game, keep it fresh, vibrant and never let anyone stop him from creating stellar compositions that elevate the game and push the envelope,” has motivated him to stay a step ahead. Constantly setting the bar high, Captain Pikes always challenges himself and those he collaborates with, including producer, Jerome "Perion" Hunter aka LumbaJack, to think outside the box. This is a definitive time for Pikes; he’s always felt he could make Superstar moves with great music. One listen to Captain Pikes and you realize his uniqueness is without question.
