I was born in Junction City, Kansas on July 20, 1985. I moved around a lot as a child living in different states such as Texas, Nebraska, Arizona, but after living in Oklahoma I have always considered OKC my home. I started doing music at the age of eight and I knew then that I had found my calling. I started playing drums at the age of eleven and soon after that I picked up the keyboard and have never looked back. After discovering that I had a natural talent of creativity with music, my cousin and I decided to form a group called Rugged Individualz. That marked the beginning of C.L. McCoy, the producer.
