Life & Work with Young Dutch

Today we’d like to introduce you to Young Dutch. 

Hi Young, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I was always into music. Never really wanted to pursue though as a career or hobby. Finishing my freshman year of college (basically failing out) I decided to take a risk and start just making music as one of my good friends told me I really should go for it. During this time was having living situations as my parents kicked me out of the house, I was able to live with some producers in East Lansing while they were in college. being consistent and having small goals along the way really helped me progress quickly! I came back to Grand Rapids 2 years ago, during corona time there was no shows or anything going on. I decided to take advantage of that and start throwing my own shows, since I’ve been able to throw two more, and am planning one currently. 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
I’ve been kicked out of my house, lost a lot of friends and family members. Some days are better than others mentally but I always know what I’m working towards. 

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I’m a musical artist, I Mainly rap and Melodie’s are what I’m looking for when listening, and making my music. 

Where we are in life is often partly because of others. Who/what else deserves credit for how your story turned out?
I have a producer that I got into this with names @jpsilo (Instagram) he understands a lot of what I go through and has always been there. Couple friends get it but I try not to explain too much to people and let the music speak for itself.
