Malcolm Brickhouse & Jarad Dawkins are a couple of sixth graders from Brooklyn, New York with an inspirational message from an unlikely place – heavy metal. Refusing to be put into a box of everyone else’s expectations, they stay true to who they are. Brickhouse says, “I don’t like doing the same thing everybody else is doing. I want to do my own thing.”


Malcolm and Jarad met when they were four at a birthday party and formed a band shortly after.  In addition to playing quite often in Times Square, Unlocking the Truth has begun to get noticed nationally. They were recently featured on FX’s Totally Biased, and got to perform live on the show. The also recently auditioned for America’s Got Talent.
