Born in 1992, Adrian Kniffley is an artist out of Louisville, KY. He was born into a musically cultured family awakening his call to music.
Influenced by the world through his unique perspective, Adrian began writing songs and composing music by the 4th grade. After being introduced to the music producing program, FL Studio, Adrian knew he had found his niche.
“’I’ve always loved to create. Through music I had a way to express my creative side in my own way. I never started doing music to be a millionaire or to glorify material things. Just followed my heart.”
Although Adrian was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes by the age of 17, he knew life was full of changes and more to come. A reason he latched to music as a constant. Never discouraged, he always has new ideas and inspiration for his music. Realizing that never stopping was the only way to progress, Adrian continues working to further his career day by day.

Q: If you were given a chance, which Artist would you love to perform with?
A: If i could perform with any artist, itd be B.G. #freebg too. He plays a big part in my authenticity. The way he switches his rhythm up on beats and lazy demeanor stood out to me because hes really rippin a verse but its comes off effortless. I apply that same attitude to my music and its allowed me to be comfortable being me.
