Anonymouz has always been interested in music, beginning with prestigious classical training from the Royal School of Music in Piano and Music Theory in 1998. In the same year he was named top academic student at Auckland Grammar School, going on to win the Ministers Plate music competition for composition. He continued his success in 1998 winning the Auckland regional finals of the Smokefree Rockquest as a bassist for the schools heavy metal band Late Harvest. In 1999 he was appointed piano
Anonymouz, who is of Samoan heritage, is a man of many hats. He is a classical musician, pianist, rapper, beat maker, record producer, studio engineer, session player, music educator and mentor. He gladly shares his experiences with youth and community alike through many mentoring and teaching events. His practice lyrically and musically provides a bridge for generational communications, often mixing musical styles from different eras and regions with contemporary Hip-Hop and everyday South-Auckland content. Growing up in Mangere Anonymouz was heavily influenced by his strict Samoan Methodist upbringing, his rebellious youth and South Auckland street culture. He uses these experiences to help others formulate their own unique voice through accessing their personal histories and backgrounds.
Noteworthy amongst his lengthy career is APO Remix the Orchestra in 2012 which perfectly encompassed the social and musical aspirations of Anonymouz. By fusing Hip-Hop and classical music, the performance called for stylistically diverse collaborations with musical artists from a variety of different musical backgrounds. The work featured Ermehn, Tyree, Frisko aka Alphrisk, DJ CXL and Auckland Philharmonia soloists Miranda Adams, Brent Grapes, Ingrid Hagan, Annabella Leslie and Eric Renick. Through the reworking and remixing of classical orchestral music, Anonymouz was able to reach a much wider audience but also in a way he made two disparate worlds of music co-exist, creating a harmony between those two communities that many could relate to.
