City Staccz

C. Staccz is artist/producer/writer for Clutch Time Productions based in Denver, Colorado. Born and raised in the Montbello area, he got into music at a very young age. Staccz grew up playing the drums in church, took piano lessons, and even taught himself how to play the bass/electric guitar. In 2002, he heard an instrumental for the first time, and decided to pick up a pen and pad and try out his lyrics to the beat. At that point, it was just for fun. Later on that year Staccz, and a few friends from school, started freestlying and even battling. He had his first performance, in 8th grade, at his middle school for all grades, and even put on a show for the parents after school. By high school, Staccz was recording songs (under the alias Renegade) featuring other local artists. As of now, he's a writer still trying to work with other local artists to get his name out a little more. Staccz has done shows all around the Colorado area such as Hodi's (Ft. Collins), The Gothic Theatre, (Englewood), The Roxy (Denver), and the Tivoli (Located on the Auraria Campus). He is on a mission to make music for his fans and keep his music in your iPod or cd player. Please show your support for Staccz by "Liking" his artist page on Facebook:
