Born Andre Starkey, Retro started doing music at the age of 9; thanks to his love of R&B which he contributes to his older sisters. Being the youngest of 6 kids, Retro found himself engulfed in music as his way to occupy his time while in his zone. With influences such as The Temptations, Michael Jackson, and Chris Brown, to name a few, Retro began to set himself up to be a well rounded artist before he even knew it. Crediting his mom for his diversity in music. Retro presents his music in a deliverable way that is made for those in tune with more than just a beat, but the track as a whole. With his diverse approach to his tracks, Retro takes the listener on a journey of understanding, enjoyment, and pure mood-rocking music. Defining his music in one word, “Immortal,” Retro is making music that will live on forever. More that just a rapper, Retro executes a poetic approach to his music. Allowing his reality and surroundings to flow through his words.
