Tell us something about you that fans should know:

Music became Astro Itami’s passion partly because of the struggles that he had for years. The creative process of translating the pain into music helped alleviate some of the stress he experienced. The more he sang and danced, the less he was affected by what other people said about or to him.

In middle school, a teacher told Astro Itami that he had a beautiful voice. Her compliment encouraged him to start making music and dancing. These expressions of validation pushed the artist to disregard the voices that told him he was never going to make it. Regardless of what life throws at him, Astro Itami has learned to persevere and never give up.

Where are you from and what’s the music scene like there?

I’m from Topeka, Kansas.

How have your life experiences influenced your music?

Humans have an extraordinary relationship with music and dance. Throughout history, individuals and communities have composed, performed, and danced to music to express their deepest feelings. Astro Itami taps into this connection to create songs and perform dances that strike against the negativity he faced early on.

Since 2017, Astro Itami has been making music and dancing. He is driven by the simple motivation of sharing his gifts with other people. The up-and-coming musician wants to show people that there are alternative ways to achieve one’s dreams without compromising one’s sense of self. Through his example, Astro Itami manifested the strength not to give in to negative comments.

As a true overcomer, Astro Itami has transformed what seemed like obstacles brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic into opportunities. To gain exposure to a worldwide audience that now stays home, he recorded live videos on Facebook and uploaded songs on SoundCloud.

Who would you most like to collaborate with?

Lil Vert Uzi
