A born and raised New Yorker, Hiyawatha realized at a young age music was going to be an integral part of his life. Harnessing his creative side and entering the studio in high school, he had no idea it would later lead to a career. Hiyawatha jumped into the underground scene with partner Matt FX (Of Broad City) and began a niche promoter brand known as TRIBES NY. Illegal popups all over Brooklyn and Manhattan opened the eyes of industry veterans and later doors with opportunities. Currently he is a seasoned resident at Girls & Boys - Webster Hall's longest running electronic party founded by Alex English. By day, he handles talent bookings, by night you can find him mingling backstage.
