Scanlouz DeLeon is one of the selected few artists from the heart of California (Central Valley), the North Side of Merced, Ca. Scanlouz began his music career singing at his grandmother’s church, but as he grew up and the environment around him changed, so did him and his music. From the church to the pavement, Scanlouz had to grit and grind as a youngin to survive in the streets of Merced. Although his life was difficult that didn’t stop him from chasing his dream as a musical artist. As a kid with no father in the house and a mother working to provide for the family, Scanlouz did what most kids in lower income environments did, jump off the porch and find what he was looking for in the real world.
