Volcano... born Chris Fortson in Detroit MI. High School Graduate... College Dropout... Music Artist, Producer, and entrepreneur. Started off as "The Invincible" as a solo artist, later growing to "Volcano" a part of the group Natural Disasters. Emerging from the rubble returning to solo status he founded I-ENT Records LLC. Though a solo rap artist and C.E.O. he became a member of the Fusion Band "Cody Stagefright" of Mount Clemens MI. After 4 years of performing, releasing 2 EP's and also winning the 89x $10,000 battle of the bands Cody Stagefright has gone on hiatus. From there still a solo artist and missing the live band feel he created a new band. At this very moment we have what is now called Volcano and The New Radio Standard. Not only living up to its name but being labeled as a force to be reckoned with. 

His focus has always be a outstanding entertainer. His talents spread internationally. He's built a great rapport with many artists and studios for his writing, production, song presence and superb ear as a mix engineer.  With the addition of his internet radio show Volcano Underground through Tapdetroit.com the need for an umbrella was evident. He then created The Central Media llc which encompasses ALL of his talents as a designer, producer, engineer, performer and radio personality.  

He has released his debut mixtape "Available Upon Request Vol 1, followed by his debut full length album "The Resume" simultaneously with the album for the Band Cody Stagefright. All of which have not only impressed its listeners but has earned him a nomination for Artist of the year by DetroitRap.com, then winning Hip Hop Artist of the year by Detroit Black Music Awards, the before mentioned 89x Battle of the Bands all in 2010 and recently In 2014 he won the title of Outstanding Hip Hop MC by the Detroit Music Awards. His song "Boom Clap" has received numerous plays on Detroit local radio.

Volcano wears many hats.  He is currently working on the album Graffiti Symphony as Volcano and The New Radio Standard. In his words "Before you face the world you must face yourself", he has done so and is ready to deliver what the world has been missing... Good Music.
