Joshua, aka Chilly Winters was born Sept. 5th of 1990, in a Pt. Huron, MI hospital to his young mother and his veteran father, who suffered from bi-polar and depression post-war. Chilly spent a lot of his teenage years moving from house to house throughout Metro Detroit. Because of his father's illness, Chilly grew up very dysfunctional, chaotic and violent. His family didn't have a lot of money. His father played in many rock n' roll bands, which often meant late nights and a lot of drugs and alcohol. Even allowing young Joshua to go see his dad play live for biker clubs like the Outlaws. In the chaos, Chilly found himself acting out, doing drugs, breakin' laws and, eventually, all of his anger and pain lead to many county jail stays and a prison sentence. Chilly always expressed himself through his poetry, Often rapping for his friends and family he had around him, catching any bit of buzz he could, wherever he could. In 2012, He met Gage Lane (a producer in Detroit). That's when he started cutting records, but he never actually released any of them. It wasnt until his dad passed away in late 2016 he really started going hard. He put out his 1st record called "I Am The Man" April of 2018. And then he followed up with 2 more releases, a collab, and 2 cover songs he shot videos for on youtube to finish off the year. He has taken all of his pain from the past and put it into his music. He is now set to release his 8-track EP Cold Hearts Break Hearts on 4/20/19 and even landed a feature with D12's Bizarre. Crazy mixed with Real, Chilly is an artist you can't deny!
