    The son of two parents who emigrated from Cuba, Heron (family name Garza) was instilled with the values of hard work and diligence from a young age. The young rapper was born in a mostly Cuban area of Miami Florida, but spent most of his childhood and teenage years in San Antonia, Texas. The two things that dominated his family life was a drive to become a baseball player and strong Latin American ties to the Catholic church. 

    When Eric Garza felt the calling to play baseball, he never felt the call to serve God. He just wasn't interested. He wasn't deemed a bad teenager, but experienced a fair share of trouble. He and his brothers began to excel at baseball, and Garza engaged in a life deemed as a top athlete.

    One of his brothers was drafted to play ball with the Milwaukee Brewers while he was thrusted into the college life as a student and athlete at Georgetown University. It wasn't until college that Garza really began to enjoy music. Initially, KB's (Reach Records) track "Enough" brought him to tears letting Garza know that a God existed he had never known. The seed was planted and began to take root. 

    One of the main influencers was Ravi Zacharias, however, Garza wasn't deep enough into his faith to understand what he was learning. He remained an active participant in the collegiate party scene and focused on the life of an athlete. 

    Six years into his faith walk, Garza comments on how difficult each day remains. The women. The college scene. The alcohol. However, the only substance that filled his missing void was Jesus. Faith remained as a constant deterrent to survive's college temptations. 

    He engaged becoming serious with his faith at the same time music became an important passion. Garza is quoted in saying, "I wouldn't say I make Christian music, but I'd be lying to say that every song I've ever made has been made with the intention of bringing glory to God or to find God, or search for stuff I've been missing my whole life."

    For artists and students, life becomes about finding the proper balance. For Garza, his balance involves God, music, baseball, school, and his family. 

    One of his biggest goals as a musician is also to link it together with sports. He feels the two go hand-in-hand. He wants to represent the person to bridge the gap.

    Garza admitted, "I want to represent the athlete and music culture and let people know you can chase dreams. I want to explore that heavy, submerging those two cultures."
