You are not a typical artist. How would you define your personal brand? How would you define your sound?
My brand is eclectic, it’s not a brand where we thrive on fitting in. We choose self identity as a way to live. The Blunko brand doesn’t conform. I define my sound as refreshing. It’s not what you’re hearing right now its new and freeing. Some people call it Hip-Rock or Trap-Rock but either way its a Vibe.
Let’s talk about your latest project. What was the inspiration behind it?
My latest project is PURGE which was written about 4 years ago. Before the BLM movement was a thing. The inspiration would have to be “tired of being tired.” With everything happening with the BLM movement I got tired and I had a thought of “what if we got one day to just PURGE, but for the right reasons.” Then BOOM COVID happened and I decided to go back and record it and got Capital P and Naked Heart on there and now we movin’.
Name three people who have inspired you in your life or your music career.
My mom she’s my best friend, Micheal Jackson, and my son!
What affirmations do you repeat to yourself that contribute to your success?
I wake up every morning or afternoon and say “Lets GO!” and also tell myself “This too shall pass”
If you were a color, what would it be, and how would you describe yourself?
If I was a color it would be Red (no I’m not a gang banger), its Fire, hot!
How do you live life to the fullest?
I know bigger is coming and I just know and believe and go with my own flow. I just live and do my best to treat people great and with love.
What is next for you?
My EP is next. Get my online store up and running. Get some sponsors like Vans and Rockstar energy drink.
