My name is Krosst Out, I am an alternative artist based out of Toronto, Canada. Growing up I was fed a mixed diet of sounds. From a rock and roll father, to metalhead friends all the while sneaking hip hop records home for myself.
This has influenced my sound and song writing style Pulling from all avenues to help craft a different and genre-bending listening experience.
As an artist I strive to create the best product I can. I will do that for you and your song. Whether you're looking for a feature artist or someone to enhance your song lyrically or musically I'm that person. I've been writing songs for over a decade, and will bring the same energy I put into my songs to your songs to help create something that speaks to you and your audience.

A: Started writing at age 12 while playing piano. I shifted into playing bass during high school, all the while continuing to write and explore metal, hip hop and rock. Afterwards I attended RAC for sound production and focused more on my talents of rapping which I then took to Toronto. Interning at a recording studio while creating my first EP and becoming more involved in the music scene I knew that this was where I wanted to be. I eventually left the studio to focus solely on my art. Fast forward I have two EPs's 1 full length album a slew of singles and a new album on the way.
