Meet Major Recording Artist and Rapper Guch

Meet Major Recording Artist and Rapper Guch

“Louisiana native,” Andrea Clay discovered her love for music at the age of 5. Inspired by 2Pac, a liberated and educated thug, she began writing conscious and subconscious lyrics in 95. Throughout her childhood she turned to music like a security blanket and made the studio her safe zone. Initially “Infinity”, the lyrical whiz took on the pseudonym: GUCH.  “Infinity didn’t define me…I mean, the name was cool,  and of course I want my music to be everlasting but when my friends asked me how I was…I always replied ‘I’m Guchhh.’ Meaning..I’m good..nothing bothers me.”

Guch and Q

Digging into her story further, it became evident that in music Andrea really is Guchhh, unbothered. No matter the worries of the world she maintains a constant peace. In spite of familial hardships and unfathomable circumstances, GUCH has remained true to her passion.

When asked about her support system, the list was too vast to be listed.  Of course, her family and friends were mentioned, but she was certain to give all Glory and Honor to God for the privilege to be capable of converting emotions of herself as well as others through music.

Her personality matches her passion.  In her spare time she volunteers and works in her music.  She enjoys working with children with special needs.  This is one artist in tune with what matters.

Born and raised by Mexican parents in Corpus Christi, Texas, Midnight Navy is driven by everyday novelties, cultures, landscapes, and people. At the age of 14, he relocated to Phoenix, Arizona where he continued developing his musical taste. With those experiences, his affinity for music grew drastically as he taught himself to produce and sing on his own records. After a few years of experimenting with different sounds and musical ideologies, the moniker ‘Midnight Navy’ was created in late 2016. Two years later, Midnight Navy’s self-titled EP was released as a deep dive into his new experiences moving back to his home state of Texas.
