Refrain from the Mundane
The Paranorml Sickayatrist It's 1992 in L.A. Southern California, a transformation is about to take place that will undoubtedly be recognized as a pivotal point in the history of music. Immersed in hip hop and seeking new avenues of expression, a 14 year old breaker/graffiti artist picks up a steno pad and a ball point and scribes the first of many rhymes that subsist deep in his soul. From that point on, The Paranorml knew he had found his true calling. Deeply inspired by innovators like De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Pharcyde, Souls of Mischief, he started the group S.H.P. (Seventh Heaven Planets) and began rockin' shows. The Paranorml produced, recorded, mastered, and performed on all of S.H.P.'s material, including the group's two albums ('Re-Evalution' & 'Chemistry'). This experience served him well as he has matured and naturally progressed into one of Undergorund's most respected solo acts. On his first solo release, 'Refrain from the Mundane', The Paranorml recorded 21 classic Hip Hop tracks featuring Crag Malkovich, Johnny Five, RedCloud, Earthworm & more. The Paranorml sets him self apart from the rest by striving to stay the most diverse Lyricist out. Doing albums that consist of many different vibes and sounds killing the monotony and keeping things fresh.
