Covan Magee was born in Kings County, Brooklyn, NY and hails from Staten Island, NY. He has music in his blood, being the cousin of the legendary R & B group the Force Md's. He 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.
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.
Covan was discovered and currently managed by Michelle “Chella" Magee (wife) a former Warner brothers/Atlantic/Elektra records employee, currently Chairman & Publicist of Bullz Eye Entertainment Inc. Covan is also a partner and Vice President of Bullz Eye Entertainment Inc.
