Everybody has a bad day at least once a week. Sometimes it can even be a bad week. Coming home, they take different means to escape their troubles. Whether they decide to sit on the couch and turn on the television or switch over to a streaming platform, people find ways to forget their bad days. For younger people, music is their passageway to go into a different realm far from reality. Alexander Martoccio is a young artist whose solace lies in music. He took the stage name ZanderXain and has been streaming his music to pull others up from their internal problems to connect with others like him.
ZanderXain is an up-and-coming artist who is currently working on getting his feet on the ground. For as long he can remember, music had always been his safe haven. At a young age, he had been diagnosed with depression which cast a dark cloud over his head. For a child to be diagnosed at a young age, Zander found it challenging to connect with his peers. Every time he reached out to people, he discovered that no one could understand his situation. Zander felt alone, but eventually, he found the light with music.
Delving into songs he loved, Zander was able to fend off his depression and carried himself up away from sinking. Although there were days when it became unbearable, music was always there to help him. As he grew older, music was not just an escape but a promise. Zander found himself striving for a career as a musician.
Taking the stage name ZanderXain, the rising artist has been building his name in the industry to connect with others suffering from depression and going through trials in life that they find unbearable. Zander’s music is a testament to everyone who is currently enduring what he faced alone. “I pour my heart out on these tracks, literally,” he shared, “I connect with every single song I’ve made personally.”
Zander thrives in the hip-hop genre and works tirelessly to produce the next best hit. His work ethic has seen him create songs with catchy beats like ‘Discussions’ and ‘Be Mine, to name a few. Zander’s passion for music is unimaginable as he seeks out like-minded musicians who share his sentiments. “I eat and work thinking about melodies and lyrics in my head if I’m not already writing them down on my phone during break,” Zander revealed, “I won’t just let anyone get on a song with me. It’s gotta be someone who’s really going to put their soul into what we’re making.”
Sharing his music on every platform, from Spotify and SoundCloud to YouTube, Zander’s music has slowly gained some recognition. Zander has made a name for himself without signing to a brand or label, reaching 1.5 million plays on every platform combined.
There is nowhere for the young artist to go but up, and Zander has already set his sights on the future. He plans to make enough to acquire a mansion his family can settle into and call home. Additionally, Zander hopes to use his dream home to create a studio and invite other artists to give them a chance to follow his career.
