Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, a young musician named TIME (This Is Musical Excellence) lives by the words in his nickname. For TIME, music has always been more than just something to listen to. Even before he began to create music, he submerged himself in sounds from various genres and eras — resulting in a versatile sound today. Listening to everything from rap to metal helped TIME develop a sound that cannot be defined by a single genre. He has been creating music for 13 years, and holds a repertoire that backs his ability.
