His Father is a classical/jazz/flaminco master for more info visit (www.RichardHastings.com). His mother is a lounge singer. He learned how to play guitar from his father at a very young age (4) and he soon learned many other instruments such as drums, piano, uke, banjo, bass and the triangle. from ages 16-22 He started his band Los Federalies (www.LosFederalies.com)He is the lead singer and songwriter/guitar player. They packed such places as the Roxy, Whiskey and Di Piazza's in Long Beach. When he wasn't doing the band he was into Hip Hop. During high school he would use his dads drum machine to make beats and have all his friends over to freestyle and record. Thats when he started rapping he somehow acquired the nickname D-frawg. He realized that he was not a gangster but just a petty frog in his fairy tale world looking for his princess. He made an album when we was 17 Called "Frawgystyle" which is on tape. He is going to be re-releasing it. He was with a rap crew called Terminal Illness which fell apart. Since then he released the "Nightmare on Temple st" Triliogy . And is releasing "Nightmare before Christmas" Dec. 24th . He has been thru a lot so he raps about his life and his battle with drugs that he overcame. He combines his rock background with his hip hop & reggae influences and I guess you get Frawgystyle. Which is also the name of the lable he started. Frawgystyle Records. He doesnt follow the mainstream he hates music like Justin Bieber, his music is from the heart. He makes music because he loves it not because he is trying to be some industry wannabe. He has no limits to his music. He doesnt care what anyone thinks nor does he follow stupid trends, he is all about individuality. He also produces beats if you need beats please check the beat section of the page or go to www.LongBeachStrongBeats.com
