USD alum set to release pop album

Message

Safe and easy career paths have been all the rage for college graduates since the economic downturn, but recent USD alumnus Michael Ahmad is sticking with his passions and seeking a career in musical performance.
“There’s never really been anything else I wanted to do. It’s always been what I pursued,” Ahmad said.

The artist, who goes by the stage name Phaero, has released a single on iTunes. His electronic pop album, “ARTificialSEXDRUNK” will be available soon. “It’s about a society predicated on superficiality, sex and intoxication,” Ahmad said.

Ahmad grew up in Colorado and began performing at the age of seven. He ventured into the wide world of entertainment, trying his hand at acting and modeling before traveling to San Diego to earn his bachelor’s degree.

He soon discovered that his interests were broad and diverse. He enjoyed music, dance, acting and singing. “I was constantly being told I need to focus,” he said. “Theater is what taught me I could do all these things.” (Full Story on The Vista)
