Thank you for spending time with us. Please introduce yourself to our readers and tell us where you’re from.
I’m Toddrick Butler, artist name The Messenger. I am from Pearson, Ga which is also of SuperBowl Champion Tyreek Hill.

Tell us the origin behind your name.
Every song that I deliver to the people I want it to have a meaningful message behind it. The music I make is to build and uplift in every aspect of life. That’s why I’m The Messenger.

What made you decide music was your passion?
I was introduced to various sounds of music growing up from my dad. I fell in love with it from day one. I saw Michael Jackson on TV one day and I remember telling my mama that I wanted to be like him. Not knowing at the time that I could actually sing. So I started to write journals full of lyrics and over time I got better. I started learning recording softwares and learning the basics of recording a song. Over time my craft got better and I never put the mic down since.

How would you describe your style of music?
My style of music can’t be boxed within a genre. I can give you hip hop, r&b, pop, etc. I’m an all music artist who loves music in its entirety. But if I had to it would be R&B and Hip Hop style of music.
