When it comes to the world today, it’s hard to stay optimistic when everything around you feels uncertain. Broken politics, a deluge of social media, and a stagnant music industry — no wonder older generations think it’s all downhill from here. It’s difficult keeping your head on straight, let alone channeling creativity. Acoustic/hip hop singer-songwriter DeLaCroix is hopeful, however, using his music as a way to encourage others to tap into their creative potential, and unleash its force to spread love and new ideas.
Based out of Tulsa, OK, Anthony DeLaCroix is a lyricist, guitar player, songwriter, and producer. Referred to as a Black Gypsy, DeLaCroix’s foray into music began in his early childhood. Born of West African/Puerto Rican descent, his mother was a musician and artist who exposed him to an array of cultural sounds: old school singer-songwriters, Caribbean music, and various African genres. His father a spiritual guru taught him to see the world as a reflection of himself. Each moment is for the perfecting of our unfolding, so why not become aware of our experience with an open heart. His eclectic palette of influences offered the perfect primer for his teenage years, where he began to bud as a musician, poet and spiritual seeker.
