Azeem Haq is a Producer/Recording Artist from Toronto, Ontario. He is the youngest child of his migrated Pakistani parents, his talents and career aspirations stemming from many generations of musical exploration and expression throughout his family.
At birth, Azeem was diagnosed with a spinal condition and has had over a dozen surgeries throughout his adolescence. He is an advocate for people with disabilities and seeks to empower individuals like himself through his music. Proceeds generated from Azeem’s first album ‘The Great one’ are donated to SickKids Foundation- the hospital where he received medical care.
Azeem began making music at 13, starting with songwriting and quickly moving to audio production. Composing beats is second nature to him, and it wasn’t long before he gained commercial success with several songs on the radio. He learned about the industry through grass-roots marketing and found other opportunities to expand his talents in other mediums like acting and broadcasting.
Today, Azeem is an award-winning audio producer and songwriter, gaining local notoriety for the anthems he created for Toronto’s most beloved teams – the Toronto Raptors and the Toronto Maple Leafs. His song “Go Leafs Go” went viral just before the 2017 NHL Playoffs began and has garnered media attention from notable outlets including CBS Sports, City TV News, CBC, and more.
Azeem is consistently in the studio creating new music, and his latest single ‘My City’ features heavyweight rappers from around North America, including The Game, Lazarus, Fredro Starr, and fellow Canadian, JRDN. Follow Azeem for all the latest @azeemhaqmusic
