Que Dafoe is a music artist living in Pittsburgh, PA. Que grew up in Sharpsburg, and became obsessed with two things at an early age – skateboarding and music. He first started writing music as a teenager, substituting his own lyrics for those of the artist’s on mixtapes that he though sounded better. These quickly became the soundtrack to parties at his friend’s houses and winding drives to find perfect skate spots, inspiring Que to start writing and recording his own music. He kept these original pieces to himself, honing his sound and developing his style. From his humble beginnings, he found like minded creatives in Pittsburgh which would ultimately become an artists collective. They call themselves Lokal Foreners – outsiders in a city they have known their whole lives.
Their ranks now span from Pittsburgh to LA, and include rappers, tattoo artists, clothing designers and producers, drawing creative energy from one another. Que has since dropped his first mix tape – “Fuck It” – in 2016 and his second – “Hold That Thought” – in 2017. Later that same year, LoKal Foreners completed the Couch Crashing Tour, their first North American tour. Que collaborated with NYC based director Michael Casker for his first music video for the song “Hustle.” He also helped curate the soundtrack for “The Gates,” a short film inspired by skate culture in Pittsburgh featured on London-based platform DAZED AND CONFUSED. He continues to skate and write music every damn day.
