Welcome to The Paragon
The Paragon is a creative music duo consisting of 2 artists, Halo Michaud(rapper, singer, song writer, bassist) and Terry Maverick(rapper, producer, song writer, audio-engineer), who gracefully fuse analog color and digital clarity with stunning visuals to take you on an odyssey through walls of sound painted with cinematic lyricism, catchy hooks, and explosive punchlines. Both born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, The Paragon is influenced by vast genres which allows them to take rap music to creative heights similar to that of Outkast, Kanye West, Childish Gambino, and Kid Cudi.
Before the Drugs is a project created to give the world an idea of The Paragon's sound and potential. Sonically, it's an epic journey that has a Kanye, Gambino, Outkast, meets Drake sound, yet at the same time it sounds like nothing imagined up to this point. It starts off with the epic intro Welcome to the Paragon that grabs you in. While the cohesive, fluidity from track to track creates a listening experience that drives you through an almost trance like odyssey where each song offers something new and demands the listener's absolute attention. It's dark, enticing, and almost warm storyline of hunger, fleeting love, and finding purpose mixed in with a refreshing balance of lyricism challenges the listener's to look inside and by the project's end, it leaves you with the feeling that only true art can give...and that is appreciation.
