SIYAM

Passion and perseverance have led to the release of Siyam’s debut LP, “Sacred Ceremonial Ground.” Siyam achieved much success from his first release, “My Soul Purpose.” A “great album” review from Jason Pulaski of KUCI 88.9FM,       3 and 1/2 stars from Liam Thomson of stateofemergency.net based in England.

SIYAM

(Pronounced SEE-YOM) was born on Nov. 19 in Santa Monica, Calif. He moved to an unincorporated area between the cities of Arcadia and Monrovia where at an early age, he developed a passion for music. Siyam caught an appearance by Run-DMC and Jam-Master Jay on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand and it was then that he knew hip-hop music was his destiny. LL Cool J, Rakim and the Sugar Hill Gang are some of his influences.

SIYAM

Began creating his own mixes and scratches using his family’s old eight-track unit that had a turntable he used for spinning records with Break Beats. His first recordings were made in 1986, and he went by the name of Def K.  Siyam continued his journeys with hip-hop continually writing, rapping, free-styling and performing. In 1992, he began a demo project in Pasadena featuring “Lost in The Darkness which caught attention.,” Siyam approached music directors at Power 106 and his song made it to air on the station’s “Make it or Break it”-type show. Listeners responded favorably to the song, but the show was soon cancelled and Siyam had to find another outlet for his music.

SIYAM

  Enrolled in recording engineering classes at Pasadena City College (PCC). It was there that he became friends with music producer Matt Lavella who has produced several of Siyam’s songs. Siyam took a hiatus but believes that some of his best work has been created since the birth of his son. Oct. 2003, Siyam’s hit the radio airwaves again on KUCI-FM (88.9) at U.C. Irvine in regular rotation. Siyam released his 2nd full length album in October 2011 titled, “13 Is The Number” with a compilation Album coming out titled, A Killer’s Point of View.
