Born and raised in the city of Macon, Sonny Spoon has worked diligently to make a name for himself and put his city on the map. His career began at the tender age of 14 when he started performing at local talent shows and gaining the confidence of his peers and elders as a creative story teller through music.

He has worked diligently with public schools, non-profit organizations and many independent agencies that would allow him to share his testimony as a deterrent for at risk youth.
