Artist on The Watch: Meet FAIR3
FAIR3! What's the story behind your artist name?
My name is Justo Hernandez, aka FAIR3.
I choose that for my stage name because my name means “fair” in English.
I put the three at the end because I have always loved the number three.
It means many different things like my jersey number or the number of people I call my family, but really at the core, it’s the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Where you from?
I’m 17, was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada.
I’m of Latino descent and my dad immigrated from Mexico, where he met my mom.
Growing up, I never had any brothers or sisters to mess with so, it was always two things I was doing playing football or learning music.
When did you start pursuing music?
I used to write songs on my little notepad in the back of my mom’s car, play guitar, and bang on the drums.
I never really put my voice to music until just recently.
I have huge goals for my music.
I want to affect billions positively, help them through a tough time, motivate, or just let them not think and vibe to a song.
I have always had mental health issues growing up, just like everybody else but, for a while, I did not know everybody else dealt with the same issues until I started to really listen to music in middle school.
What I mean by that is I used to always have music in the background, but I never really heard until like 8th grade, and ever since then, I knew that I wanted to do something in music.
Who would you say influence your music everyday?
I have influences from artists like Kanye, J. Cole, XXXTENTACION, Eminem, Tyler The Creator, Juice Wrld, Kendrick Lamar, Blink 182, etc.
There are many others, but if I named them all, it would take the whole page.
Anything new or upcoming we can expect to see from you?
I still have so much to learn in music and huge goals to accomplish but, this is my start, and I’m starving to make my goals come true.
