Artis McKinley Biography Artis McKinley is an American Producer, Singer, Rapper, Songwriter, and Actor. Born and raised in the small town of Arcadia, California, Artis tapped into his creative musical ability at the young age of 5. At 6, he learned to play the piano; then followed the Drums, Trumpet, Guitar and Flute. His fluent understanding of musical composition is the reason for his ability to create multifaceted songs that cover many genres, from hip-hop to pop. An alumni of citrus college’s boisterous music program, he’s had the opportunity to perform alongside some huge names in the industry including Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson. Artis attributes his wealth of influence to the likes of Philip Bailey, Aaron Spears, Frank Sinatra, and Robert Glassburg—just to name a few. In addition to his achievements at Citrus College, Artis has gained recognition for his contributions to the 2014 Night Owl Productions Tour and Ricky Lawson Memorial Concert in 2013. Today, the musician spends most of his time performing at an array of venues across Los Angeles county. He regularly performs at carious open mic’s and frequently books social gatherings such as parades, parties, and festivals. The versatility of his sound even captivates a more reserved audience, gigging at churches and weddings on occasion. His most recent project is an upcoming EP set to drop in Winter 2017.
