While growing up in Durham, NC, Cypha Da Moonchild (aka Mike Grissom) fell in love with music at an early age. His father, also a local DJ, influenced him to listen to all types of genres. When Cypha’s father gave him his first mixer and turntables as a teenage, he began to make mixtapes to give to his schoolmates. During this time, he also formed a Hip-Hop group call United Kamikazes. He continued Dee Jaying at St. Augustine College where he got his communications degree and minor in Theater Arts and Film.
In 2004, he started to pursue producing records for artist and making beats. Cypha has produced songs for independent artist and independent TV shows. He has also composed background music for a variety of MTV programming. In 2015, Cypha Da Moonchild released his global debut instrumental album “Signals from the Galactic War.”
