10:20, whose name comes from the time of day he was born, is a multi-instrumentalist from Portland, Oregon living in Alpharetta, Georgia. Through looping, he pairs the saxophone, synths, piano, drums, and vocals creating a one man band that has performed around the US. Writing from what he knows and personal experience, 10:20 writes about love, purpose, faith, and family, seeking to send his 'Love in the Sound' to everyone who listens to his music.
10:20 has a sound that can best be described as 'genre binding', including the best parts of Jazz, Pop, and Hip-Hop in the music he calls Trap Jazz.
The best way to answer this question is by giving roses to the artists he finds inspirational in his music. The multi-instrumentalists FKJ and Jack Garratt, the Hip-Hop sensation Tobe Nwigwe, the grooves of Benny Sings, the soul of Jacob Banks, and the production of the great Timbaland.
