Quarters2Commas and Straight Official are proud to present another up and coming local artist on the rise representing Indianapolis!
Despite his normal laidback demeanor, the stage explodes with energy with a performance from W_Z_R_D! (Wizard)
Victor Hutchison II adopted the name Wizard in middle school and later changed the spelling to W_Z_R_D. Given his ability to leave his fans mesmerized it’s safe to say the name fits. W_Z_R_D has been making music since the young age of 12 and has found influence from his late uncle Markus Steward (Stew), Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, J Cole, XXXtencion, and ski Mask. He began to perform and record professionally two years ago and has hit the ground running.
W_Z_R_D released his first studio album, titled “Dreams to Reality” in December 2016. His follow up single “Jungle” was rewarded with blog appearances, local performances, and recognition within the Indianapolis music scene.
In early 2017, he released his first EP, “Play Me“. W_Z_R_D’s hard work and dedication to his craft has caused him to grow quickly as an artist. His May 2018 single “Right” has seen a lot of success via internet radio, bookings and blog postings.
Following the release, W_Z_R_D was a featured artist at The Green House Affect Open Mic in Indianapolis, the Sunspot Music Fest in Morristown, Indiana, Stonetree Studios in Indianapolis, the For The Fans Music Festival in Muncie, Indiana, the Mesa Music Festival in Arizona, and has opened for Rich the Kid & Jay Critch.
Currently, W_Z_R_D was named a finalist in the Hot 96.3 Santa Slam Opener Contest, where the winner opens for The Migos. He is also set to release his next project “Late” in Spring 2019 along with visuals for two singles from the project, “Day One” and “Old Days”.
W_Z_R_D is definitely an artist to look out for. His music may currently be found on SoundCloud, Spotify and Reverbnation and is soon to hit all major platforms.
