Hailing from Alameda, CA (which he describes as the tropical island off the coast of Oakland), Bike Maker began his journey as an artist from an early age. He honed his skills tirelessly from the hallways of middle and high school, all the way up through the stages of his college, San Francisco State University.

But as much as his music is his own, Bike Makers universal appeal makes it impossible for anybody to resist joining in the endless party.
