Early in her life, Charlotte, NC native Hourglass learned that aside from family and a few close friends, the staples in her life were music and her passion for it. In 2011, Hourglass founded GsUseEmoticons.com, an urban blog devoted to promoting new talent. Soon after, she became one of the editors and moderators of popular Hip Hop startup RapGenius.com and served as Music Editor for TheWellVersed.com. All of these jobs helped her discover her love for mixing music, and there's been no looking back since her first gig in 2012.
After working her way into the dj booths of Atlanta's most notable venues without any major backing, Hourglass has found a family in WERC Crew, a collective of creative curators and influencers. Currently, Hourglass is a resident DJ at El Bar, #TasteATL & Negril Village, and is the secret weapon of the all female Bae Worldwide collective. Most recently, Hourglass spun at the Wondaland compound at the request of Janelle Monae and graced the stages of the A3C Festival, One Music Fest 2015, and the Big Beat Fest with her WERC Crew partners. A concrete rose who has found her place in a community full of talent using her motto “Think Outside the Clock,” Hourglass's style ranges from future soul and house to reggae, hip hop, and everything in between.
