Byron "B-MUSIQ" Pickett was born on June 23, 1993 in Chicago, Illinois. At a young age, he began picking notes out on a keyboard from Sesame Street and Barney and at ten he got his first drum set. He participated in the Concert Band at Memorial Junior High School and the Symphonic, Marching, Jazz, and Pit Orchestra Bands at Thornton Fractional South High School and graduated with honors in May of 2011. It was here where Byron, two of his brothers, and four other friends from high school formed the band Phenomenon. Now, Byron is attending Berklee College of Music and dual majoring in Music Production and Engineering and Performance. After college Byron intends to continue performing, as well as own his own studio/recording label.
As a producer/performer, Byron wants to be known as B-MUSIQ. Someone might say that he's using bad grammar or that he got part of this from Musiq Soulchild or whatever else they can think of, but he has a very distinct vision of how he feels about his music and of what he wants it to become. His goal is to inspire others to Be Unique in their own way and he shows this through his music therefore you get B-MUSIQ. That being said, he wants to change the world by showing it to you through your ears!!!
