FIFTH, an emerging Bay Area star with a stylish R&B soul-meets-Hip Hop sound. Preparing to make a name from himself in an unstable music climate, we receive the first outing in the debut called “One Years Old”
One Years Old serves as FIFTH’s proper full-length introduction to the world and in the form of semi-autobiographical release. The opening track “Cost of Doin’ Business” details how he severed ties with his family of devout Jehovah’s Witnesses eventually leading to him being excommunicated and shunned by his family.
Over a haunting vocal sample-driven backdrop he opens up a floodgate of emotions on the first verse with lines like “…I decided to grow up, stopped believing fairy tales/ I was on a slave boat now the ship has really sailed…”.
The introspective “On My Way” sees FIFTH question many of the things he was taught as a kid. Things such as secular music were from the devil and anything beyond the scope of their teachings will lead to eternal damnation.

FIFTH, Delivers His Debut Album!
FIFTH is an artist with a message – the message being – be true to yourself and do what you believe in. His lyrical abilities shine through as he describes the journey of starting life over with a renewed determination and focus.
“FIFTH” decided to begin speaking out against the practice of shunning and the limitations he dealt with for many years in order to inspire others. After several media outlet appearances and interviews, FIFTH decided that it was time to pursue his lifelong passion for music.
