Storytella has always been musically gifted. He is a Lexington native raised in Frankfort, KY where at a young age, he began his lyrical journey, rapping and performing at many engagements in his hometown. However, Storytella decided to take a brief hiatus from his craft following high school. It was not until his spring 2017 semester of college at Western Kentucky University when 24-year-old Lu Bennett, now known as Storytella , endured a tragic experience that sent him into a deep state of depression. Hans Stewart, a good friend of Storytella’s, encouraged him to spill all of his emotions and pain onto the beats that he was currently producing. After constant resistance, Storytella finally gave in. He now seeks to connect listeners from all walks through cohesive uplifting music.
