Successful Deaf DJ Breaks Down Barriers in Music Industry
Robbie Wilde is an Atlanta-based artist who has mastered his craft in music despite being deaf in one ear and having only 20% hearing in the other. Wilde lost his hearing due to severe ear infections and high fevers when he was seven, but he learned to adapt by reading lips and body language. He makes music by feeling the vibrations of the songs and has built a platform for himself where there are no barriers to entry for people who might thrive in the industry. Wilde believes that everything is possible, and he lives by the quote, "Impossible is a word found in the dictionary of fools."
