My name is Idara Dorsey aka Idara. I’m an artist from Miami Fl, I’ve been writing and recording music since the age of 11 and I’m now 20 years old. I first started going to the studio, when I was 12 years old and I’ve been in love with recording ever since. My first feelings in the studio was just like a fresh breath of freedom and relief. Being in The studio for me is like a musical therapy. I release my feelings on hot beats and I feel a sign of relief, it feels like I dropped a big weight off my shoulder. I was born into a Family, who already had a love for music. Being around such talented people, it has rubbed off on me.
If it wasn’t for my uncles playing old school music at a cook out, my Granddaddy playing the guitar and my Father constantly taking me to the studio, I don’t think my love for music would have evolved as much as it has. My father was the first person to take me to the studio and I’m forever grateful for that. I kept bugging him, because he spent so much time in the studio that I wanted to know what was so great about recording. The first song, I recorded at 12 was horrible because it didn’t have a hook or chorus. I was just rapping sentences straight through without stopping. That didn’t stop me or discourage me from creating my music. By the age of 13, I recorded a song called “I had enough “and I also recorded a video for it. My Father funded and choreographed my first video. That video is still on YouTube today.
I have continued to record music over the years and I’ve been remixing other artist music on sound cloud to help me get my buzz up. I wrote about things I saw people around me go through, such as relationships and the struggle. I created a mix tape called Nasty 19 featuring some pretty hot underground artist, I released it on sound cloud. Nasty 19 was about me explaining my life at the age of 19 and how, I saw the world through my eyes. Also noticing things as an adult that I didn’t understand as a kid. Nasty 19 is a great project that contains 19 songs.
Now that, I am 20 and moving forward. I plan to be the best artist, I can be and learn from my life lessons. I want young woman and girls to look up to me and feel empowered by say to themselves “If IDARA CAN MAKE IT, I CAN MAKE IT TOO. I want happiness and positivity in a world, full of evil and darkness.
I’m young but, Im ready to chase my dreams life is too short for Regrets.
