While worldwide attacks and violence designed to shake the foundations of all our societies is the normal for 2019 we must all dig deep into our souls to strive everyday to become a “Better Person”. Recording Artist Covan understands this struggle and his latest single “Better Person” gives fans something to relate to. His message in this song is to embrace the Lord no matter what obstacles life throws at you.
Covan recently signed a global distribution deal with LRT/SS Music Group/Universal Music Group Distribution and is looking forward to sharing his music with the world. Covan Magee has turned his passion for the Lord and music into a promising career.
Originally from the Port Richmond neighborhood of Staten Island, New York Covan comes from a musical background. He is the cousin of the legendary R & B group The Force Md’s and their soulful sounds can be heard in their feature with Covan on "Better Person."
Covan was formerly known as “Recording Artist Phantom" and "Phantom The Rapper." Covan had an epiphany and decided it was time for the "Rebirth" of Covan Magee and goodbye to Recording Artist Phantom. Covan is now focusing on getting serious messages to the fans in these turbulent times. He answered his true calling as a soldier for the Lord and wants to share what he is learning every day with the world.
Covan is a jack of all trades but most call him a “messenger”. Covan is making a statement in the music industry, through his love of 90's music by keeping the sophisticated lyrical technique and flowing syncopations of jazz-hip hop alive in an era when commercial gangsta rap and auto tune is threatening to obliterate everything in its path. His literate, intelligent, nimbly performed rhymes and political consciousness certainly doesn't fit the fashions of the "moment," but he is determined to win a devoted audience.
