Hustle to Summerfest — Young Torch

Hustle to Summerfest — Young Torch

Young Torch — Repping North Side Milwaukee, Riverside High School. Music: “A mix of everything … what I’m feeling at the time.”

Young Torch made it to the finals of the competition to perform at the Summerfest Ground Floor Stage, a long way from his first performance at 7 years old.

“The reason I wrote my first song was because I beat a video game,” Torch said; he was so happy when he finished Ratchet and Clank, he wrote himself and his cousin a verse.

“We performed that for my mom and sister downstairs. I wasn’t even scared.”

At the 1st Heat of the MidWestMadeMenENT two-round contests, I could see why. Young Torch brought an inexhaustible energy. I don’t think he took much time off from the stage even during the other performances on April 1.

He said he’s been hungry since high school, after he got into a talent show.

“It was crazy; the whole school knew my name,” Young Torch said, “and I just want to take this to the next level.”

Young Torch is working on releasing some new art on his Soundcloud — and I’ve seen him at work — soon, but not until after the final elimination of the MidWestMadeMenENT Hip Hop competition May 20, starting at 9 p.m.

The top three performers advance to play 30-minute sets at the Summerfest Ground Floor Stage on July 3.
