The name Nonmos is derived from the word Anonymous. He formed this identity in response to the growing number of artists who sell their music utilizing image and other marketing gimmicks, thus soiling the purity of the art. His philosophy is that for music to be truly creative, the artist must keep it as his/her highest priority, and therefore put the music even before the artist's own personal interests. He has been a professional musician since the age of 12, playing jazz saxophone at various international festivals and events. Only recently has he ventured into hip hop and R&B, but his extensive jazz theory not only allowed for a wide range of genres, but the crossover created a sound many will find unique, intellectual and inspiring. Nonmos symbolizes a return to the roots of music, and to the roots of what artistry is all about: The Art.
