SB SurfsUp has been making music and igniting movements for the past decade. His name is a combination of his former moniker, Skool Boy, which comes from his ability to school others and his desire to surf over the obstacles of life.
SB SurfsUp’s distinct sound is a blend of R&B vibes and trap music. His laser-like focus, hustle, and undeniable talent has allowed him to reach new heights and walk in the brightest of lights.
Born in Memphis, TN, SB comes from humble beginnings. As a youth he sought out music as a way to avoid the dangerous street life. He wanted something different, and his love for music drew him to the mature adult clubs where artists like Michael Jackson, Teddy Pendergrass, Whitney Houston, Bobby Brown, and others were being played. For him these musical influences curated a mix of melody, harmony, and soul. He decided to see what it sounded like if he added trap, and his version of soul trap was birthed.
SB first came to prominence in 2013 with his breakout record “Be Her Man.” His hustle and unique sound lead him to gaining the attention of several record labels and ultimately signing to Asylum/Warner, and later with Drought King Music with a distribution deal with Sony/The Orchard.
The soul trap artist’s latest release is titled “The One.” Check out the video below!
