First emerging from the debris filled streets of Lynn, Massachusetts-- dubbed "Sin City", though a place known for its own warm and grinding spirit, Paranom first gravitated to Hip-Hop at the age of 9. Having a keen eye for his 90s street surroundings, it became natural for him to express his truth through Hip-Hop-- unknowingly as a balance of less speakable times of different and tough changes in life that we all often experience.

Paranom bridges the gap between the Golden Era and this brand new era with a soulful, lyrical, and sometimes cryptic style. While love is the driving force behind his raw, ghetto, smooth and sophisticated delivery, it is his and his ultimate aim to utilize the artform to expose various realities of life to inspire, challenge, and unite all kinds of people under the banner of "Freedom, Justice, & Equality" by any means necessary. As the newest addition to the Lynn-based super group, Tragic Allies, that aim is even more solidified.

His new 19-track album, "Life Outisde the Frame", has been released December 10,2013 on Ill Adrenaline Records, now available in store and I Tunes.

SO. We had to make it interesting!

Kreyol is about colors, patterns, lines and a clash of it all. For this preview we gave it all to you in Black and White. The silhouettes and textures were chic, but the colors and patterns? We're keeping those hush hush ;) So, for those who "think" they know what the line is going to look like next year... Baby, you have no idea.

OH MAN!!! We had such an awesome time this summer working with the greatest, craziest team from "RHYTHM OF THE UNIVERSE" aka ROTU.

If you know me personally, than you know I complain (a lot) about the lack of artistic offerings and cultural shows in Boston. Well, this year Outside the Box was launched and featured a variety of musical, theatrical and dance events throughout the Boston Commons, and I enjoyed every minute of it!!!

For opening night, Kreyol partnered with ROTU to create all of the costuming for the dynamic ensemble of the "WELCOME TO EARTH" show. The experience itself was truly inspiring... working for months with this team to design, re-design, elevate and formulate characters in 3-d form was SO DOPE!! But, seeing it all come to life?? Now that was..... breathtaking!

Take a sneak peak...

More to come from Kreyol & ROTU ;)
