Bentbegancreatingmusicaroundtheageofnine,afterafriendintroducedhimtotheartof freestyling.Whenhe was thirteen he was given an opportunity to record in a real studio courtesy of executive engineer Tarik McFarland. McFarland then became the official engineer for Bent during his entire high school career, as his music career began to take shape. He dropped his first mixtape at the age of fourteen, another one before he turned fifteen, and a third at the age of sixteen. To date, Bent has released a total of six projects with a seventh on the way. In between each of one of these projects, he’s released multiple music videos that have between 30,000 to 500,000 views respectively. He’s proven to be “one of the more popular and harder working indie artists in the game,” according to Hip-Hop Vibe.
Bent has provided a precedent for his upcoming album, “Complex Simplicity,” with a powerful piece that observes seemingly smaller nuances in life. His vision for his short film is in tune with the beat of his ascension to success.
