Some artists and musical acts are considered pillars of the industry. These artists have broken boundaries in time and space; their music will last for generations to come, inciting nostalgia and emotions captured in the era they were released.
Musical acts like The Temptations and Jackson 5 have set their legacy and influence in stone, inspiring many young aspiring artists to pursue music. Timothy Caron Jordan Kirksey Lanier was among the people who were moved by these timeless acts.
Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Caron’s father, Timothy Lanier, was the one who introduced him to music. Timothy showed and taught Caron all about classic artists like The Temptations and Jackson 5, playing their fantastic and moving discographies for Caron to listen to.
Though Caron showed appreciation, it was not until he found out about the hip-hop genre that it left an impact in his life. Caron fell in love with hip-hop and was pulled to the strong allure of becoming one of the best lyricists to ever exist in the industry.
Throughout his crazy childhood, Caron experienced living in Lawrence, Massachusetts, and Lowell, Massachusetts. Despite the wild puberty, Caron grew up to be a well-adjusted, healthy, and capable adult. He is also a middle child among ten siblings.
The affinity for music and entertainment runs in the family’s blood; most of Caron’s brothers and sisters are also talented in music and artistry. They went off to pursue their dreams and career.
In 2019, Caron, taking up the stage name Caron AKA Ronnie, started to take his music career seriously and began on a journey to stardom as a Rap artist-songwriter. By 2020, Caron finally released music. His first release was an EP titled Change, containing four songs. Two more singles, “Touchdown” and “One Life,” were released.
Within just a year, Caron is already a verified artist on Spotify, a feat that is not easy for some.
All of his songs were written and performed by Caron. Through his music, Caron writes about his hard and beautiful experiences in life. Delivering his flow seamlessly through a strong, steady beat, Caron has the special skills to transfer and capture his emotions into lyrical form. Caron has the power to move people deeply through his music.
For Caron, his journey is not aiming for success but all about growth and becoming better as a human being, reminding the world that anyone can continue the race to achieve goals and dreams at their own pace. Because of this mindset, Caron does not see anyone except for himself as a competition.
Even when Caron feels like he has reached new heights in self-improvement, Caron would still try his best to continue to grow and surpass his own limits.
Caron believes that his music reflects the reality around people, for himself and his fans included. Though his music is for everyone of age, Caron gives more importance to people who feel like they cannot be heard or lost their motivation. These people give Caron the motivation to keep going, and making relatable music for these people is one of the ways he can return the favor.
One of the best feelings in the world is knowing that there are people who sing along to the songs or raps created by Caron, and he hopes he continues evoking emotions from people and helping them believe in themselves.
