What are your musical influences?
As far as producers my idol is Timbaland. he is my #1 favorite producers ever followed by Danjahandz, and Stargate to name a few. Songwriters include Claude Kelly, Ester Dean, Keri Hilson, Sia, Miguel, The Cluthch, Frank Ocean, and Justin Timberlake
Where are you from and what was your upbringing like?
This is such a long question to answer lol Ill start with where I am from Hagerstown, Maryland. Raised by my grandmother, mother a drug addict cliche type of thing. So my life consisted alot of going to jails to see my mother and watching her drug habit tear apart relationships. To this day nothing has changed. I wouldnt know exactly where to end this answer without it being a story so ill leave it there lol.
What would you do if you could not do music?
I would probably be an IT Tech. or deal somewhere in some type of thing. I am interested in too many things to never have nothing to do so most likely I would be in the technology or fashion field as those are a few of my other interests.
As a songwriter, what is most important to you?
Purity, Realness, Believability. The subject matter as well as the emotion need to translate and feel real. Anyone can write a poem and throw it to a beat. Songwriters create emotion. They create a feeling which expresses more than just words. Melody is also an important aspect to me because that feeling you are creating must be felt on a level other than lyrically.
Was there a moment in your life when you decided that
you had what it takes to be in the entertainment industry. What was that
Once I started writing I definitely would feel like I had it. Lyrically I felt what I did, writing was/is important so as a true artist and writer that moment you feel like you are worthy should be that moment you actually feel what you are doing. Once you write that song and it connects on a real level, its possible to touch someone else on a very personal level.
What gets you in the mood to write music?
Depends, alot of the times when I find that right beat the tone has been set for where I want to go. I may start with the melody or interpret what type of mood the beat is giving to go from there. For the most part its usually the beat.
Do you have a project that you want the readers to know about?
I have an upcoming EP which i intend on being released sometime in Dec/Jan with a single to be released hopefully by the end of Nov. I also am working with producers on doing demos for singers and performers and doing features in case anybody want to holla lol.
