Cryptic Wisdom is an Arizona-based alternative pop/hip hop artist with a melancholy edge, baring poetic rap vocals and animated melodies that often have him walking a thin line between genres.
Enduring a difficult upbringing and recovering from drug addiction, he isn’t afraid to become vulnerable in his art, shamelessly taking listeners on an emotional journey through a collection of personal – and often insightful – life stories.
He has received countless messages/emails/comments from fans telling him that he literally saved their lives with his music by helping them deal with heartbreak, loss, pain, their own drug addiction and suicidal tendencies.
His art has taken him around the world to deliver a high-energy display of emotional mastery and personal transparency. This is not just music – It is a sonic soundtrack to life.
“I believe that people have an easier time dealing with life if they feel like they’re not alone, like they know somebody who has been there before and understands what they’re going through. My job is to bring people comfort by talking about my struggle and being openly transparent about my journey. I make music for people who need a little inspiration and somebody to lean on.”
