Hailing from Richmond, VA. Son of Sheila and Earl.
Soon after inheriting (AKA “jacking”) his father’s vast record collection, Ohbliv (AKA Brad O) abandoned his ‘classical’ background (playing trumpet in band) and began to study the masters on his own time.
It was during these formative years that he developed an ear for beats, soon realizing that many of his favorite jams were often sampled from some his favorite childhood records. He started off making tapes for his friends and eventually teamed up with RVA based collectives CMLK (Chocolate Milk) and JustPlainSounds.
He creates organic, soulful, and off-kilter jams with an improvisational spirit and raw interpretations from his mind and soul.
