The essence of Tears of Technology was forged over years of turmoil & desperation. Hailing from New Orleans, La, Tears of Technology captured this emotion and turned it into one of NOLA's hallmark trademarks, music. The Tears believes growing up in the culture-rich environment of New Orleans, where music is the main outlet for emotion, helped mold his unique sound.
