According to his official bio: "Channeling a diverse group of influences, including everyone from Prince, Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye to Jim Morrison and Lauryn Hill, Apropos strives to make music with a style and sound that defies traditional genres. With the renowned roots of Detroit's iconic music history in mind, Apropos hopes to channel the legends of the past and bring a revitalized, 'Modern Motown' sound to the world."
