Ausar Bradley is a student from Chicago studying community health here at the University of Illinois, but he’s also an artist. While he’s only been writing and performing his music for a little under three years, Ausar displays the tenacity and wisdom you’d typically find in older, more seasoned artist. I sat down to talk to him about his latests EP, The Six Page Letter, and what inspired it. We also talked about balancing the student/artist lifestyle, and how support from his loved ones is what propelled him to the place he’s at in life right now. All of Ausar’s music can be heard on SoundCloud by simply typing in “Ausar Music” and you can follow him on Instagram and Twitter @AusarMusic.
