Zachary Lewis Beck also known by his stage name Futuristic was born on June 2, 1991 in Bloomington in Illinois. He was raised in a large family with seven brothers and sisters.
He and his brothers performed in a talent show in the 2nd grade and they did it with a rap song, so this could be called as a start of his career.
His parents split up when he was in the 5th grade and his mother first took him to Danville and afterwards to Tempe in Arizona where he still lives today.
He attended McClintock High School in Tempe. When they finally settled down in this town, after his parents divorced, he started having problems with depression. Music was his ticket out from the troubled world of depression. It took him a while to overcome that stressed situation in which he found himself in.
During high school he sold concert tickets to his fellow classmates in order to earn money or , even more interesting, to get the chance to perform as an opening act to some of the artists whose tickets he sold. That was his own idea, a way to get closer to the audience and a way to make his name more recognizable and known.
In 2012, he uploaded his own videos and remixes on YouTube and Facebook and began his own toor. He even had to book it himself because he didn’t have money to pay someone else to do it.
In 2012 he released his first album called “Dream Big”. The very next year he released a second studio album called “Chasing Down A Dream”. Again, one year later, in 2014, he released a new project called “Travelling Local”.
He was hardworking in doing albums too. He wrote his own lyrics and music and tried to put out as many singles as he could.
“The Rise” was an album that came in 2015 and it was the album that made his name widely known. He made it in collaboration with a rapper called Devvon Terrell and they named it “Coast 2 Coast”. Devvon Terrell is an R&B singer from New York.
In 2016 his new album could be purchased on iTunes and on Google Play. The album showed up on the Billboard Top 200 chart which was a true sign of it’s success.
The record label he signed with is INgrooves Music Group with headquarters in San Francisco.
He currently lives in Tempe, Arizona.
