Who is Apollo Ace?
Apollo Ace first discovered his love for creating music when freestyling over YouTube beats with his friends on the bus ride home after school. As time progressed & bus rides home stopped; Something felt missing. He had shined a bright light onto something that resided deep within his soul & knew he couldn't go on without it. Growing up in a problematic house with diagnosed/textbook Narcissists, Sociopaths, & Psychopaths; it's a miracle he managed to stay alive with a sound mind. Always struggling with money, working 2-3 jobs at any given time of the year, Apollo Ace never had the resources, time, or friends to reach out too for help that he desperately needed.
Creating music is that help; it was his savior, his escape, his friend he could talk to about anything - you could say it was his therapy, in a way. In those moments of creation everything else would fade away; somehow always seeming to find the words, thoughts, melodies, & feelings pouring out without any control; Because in those moments he became a vessel to his deepest thoughts & emotions, that never had the ears or means to express themselves. Often bringing a feeling of relief & as if a weight was lifted off his shoulders afterwards. It just felt right.
One day at work , his friend Brett overheard him working on lyrics for a ‘chapter’ he was trying to close/relieve; To Apollo Ace’s surprise his co-worker reacted like a mad man; Why had Apollo Ace never told anyone he makes music!? With Apollo being the semi extraverted - semi introverted person he was, it was surprising that he would keep something like this from his friends?.. Apolloace explains to his friend of 7 years /co-worker of 3 years, about how they aren't really made for people or anyone for that matter; They are made for his own peace of mind & not something that he really wants to share with strangers or friends.. To Apollo's friend it sounded 'unorthodox', because most people were creating music with hopes that the world would hear, but Apollo Ace seemed to be hiding them from the world. Apollo explained how most songs he made were types of conflicts he had finally closed a chapter on & that he did not want to revisit them. Creating music was something he had to do & will always do; it's purely therapeutic & healing for him + his soul. His co-worker literally slapped him across the face and said, dude do you know how selfish that is! Do you realize how many people this could give peace of mind too, how many people this could be good for besides yourself!? Apollo's friend carried on about how Apollo Ace is actually doing a disservice to himself and the world by hoarding these 'vulnerable' pieces of art!
Apollo Ace’s Friend died that same night on the way home from work, causing Apollo to think about this interaction for months on end; Apollo had never thought that his ‘therapy sessions’(music creations) could be helping others achieve some type of relief too. Years have gone by since that exchange with his friend
& not a day passed where Apollo didn't think of the interaction he had with his friend that night. Eventually Apollo Ace decided it was in fact a disservice & pondered about how right his friend was; Wishing his friend could be here to see the impact that night had on Apollo’s life. Now with literally 100’s of ‘therapy sessions’ fully produced ,mixed, & mastered; Fast-forwarding to 2021, Apollo Ace had finally released his first session to the world, all thanks to his friend.
