What’s a better way to inspire others than by being a musician motivated to create a change? Being a duo sharing the same goals and having a common ground, Matthew Zukari and Steven Frazer are on their way to dominate the music industry. They do this by spreading positivity using their band, Double.r.
Double.r is a pair of rising stars reigning from the state of Pennsylvania. They are two music artists and enthusiasts who grew passion from the hardships in life. For quite some time, Double.r has circulated music in the hip-hop music scene. This young duo continuously set the vibe of optimism within the soul of listeners.
On the road to success, both of the creators of Double.r will never forget the start of it all.
Zukari grew up in the city of Passaic, New Jersey. However, due to complications in life, he moved back and forth between Pennsylvania and New Jersey. At a tender age, he already mastered running away from problems. With parents that are addicted to drugs, Zukari followed their footsteps and then turned into a lifestyle. Dealing with uncertainty was what led Zukari to wake up from an overdose.
Revo (Steven’s stage name) also has his own story to tell. Similarly, Revo was born in the city of Garfield, New Jersey, and grew up in Pennsylvania. Having parents on heavy drugs led to Revo’s problem in keeping his acts clean. He began committing crimes and violent decisions resulting in near life-or-death situations.
The artists of Double.r realized that music was the amber needed to reconstruct their lives. Having parallel situations, 20-year-old Zukari and 19-year-old Revo find no coincidences in life. They both believe that they have crossed paths for a reason to “connect and craft the art” they make today. Thus, they created Double.r in dedication to their lives and in proving blessings come even at the darkest hours.
Double.r was created to represent the combatting power music has to change lives. To define its name, Double.r means “real reasons.” It comes from the artist’s belief in the quote “everything happens for a reason,” may it be favorable or not. And as for their “real reason” for creating music, they hope to use their lyrics and symphony to be heard.
Double.r’s music is a reflection of the craft of the team’s dedication to every small detail. Beginning with just an escapade from the harsh realities, now Double.r’s music has brought inspiration to others in looking for the brighter side of situations.
Ranging from different genres of music, Double.r certainly is a mix of emotions. From soul trap, rap , R&B, and many more, everyone will surely have something to listen to, especially for people looking for a positive movement in their lives. Double.r says, “Even though life can be hard at times, we are living proof of change, and if someone is looking for that proof, they can come check our movement out. “
Double.r consistently creates music not for themselves, but for their avid fans supporting them behind the scenes. With everything they have put into music, they hope to express their love and support to their fans.
