I'm Astin Erikson aka "The Crusher of Bars" aka "The Blue-Eyed Bandit", an East Coast-based rapper and producer.
My passion is creating. It always starts with a melody I compose on my keyboard. That melody becomes a beat that I craft. That beat becomes a song that I write and record. That song might inspire a video, that I wll conceptualize, produce, shoot, and edit.
I do my own album artwork.
Because I have to? No, because it's what I love to do...
