Finalist - Floco Torres
Kevin “Floco Torres” Williams, Jr. got his name from a childhood friend’s grandmother. When she passed away, he took her last name Torres and create a brand that would influence people to inquire before they judge (Black Man - Spanish Name). By the age of 23, Floco had created his own hollywood call “Psychadelphia”, won two indie awards, and created a fan base from his hometown of Willingboro, New Jersey all the way down to Macon, Georgia. With his new album “Floco’s Modern Life” funded solely by his fans through online outlet Kickstarter, Floco continues to make his mark as one of the next influential entertainers/entrepreneurs/inspirations in the industry.
Listen to his music (and catch some interesting videos) here.
