Kintz is a recording artist from PA. Brandon has been making music for a few years, he has recently been on a come up every since he dropped his latest single “Evil Girls”.

 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we haven’t been able to do interviews in person so we scheduled a brief 12 question interview with the hungry thriving artist Kintz.

What is your biggest achievement?

“Honestly, I would have to say how fast my talent with music has grown, It seems like every time I step back into the studio I’m more talented than the last time. And the fact that I have so many people that want to buy my merchandise as soon as I have it ready. It’s an amazing feeling to know my work is appreciated and I reciprocate the love back to the people.”

Who is your biggest inspiration?

“If anybody knows me they know my answer will always be Juice WRLD, That man is my idol and always will be, i would have never made it this far without blasting his music into my ear drums for the last few years! , I could never sing in my own music untill years of singing juice wrld songs over and over. He TRULY moulded me into the artist i am today And I fully believe me and Juice WRLD would’ve had a DIAMOND RECORD at some point in my lifetime.”

How do you prepare before going up on stage ?

“Rehearse untill my set songs are stuck in my head, usually have a few drinks to loosen up. I’m still fairly new to the live performance life And these Covid restrictions have made it hard to find venues to perform at, So I have been mentally preparing myself for whenever I can finally get back on stage with brand new High Quality Content thats sure to make the crowd feel my vibes.”

How has the pandemic influenced your music career?

“Nothing different has really changed, I sit in my studio 9 times out of 10 every day regardless If the pandemic is going on or not, i don’t get out much . I just really enjoy creating new content for my audience And that’s more important to me then going out wasting time and being unproductive , I would say the only difference is that I can’t practice doing live shows Which I really enjoy doing.”

Tell us about the first song you made was it a success or failure.

“The first song I made was not a success, But I have to admit it sounded pretty good for someone who’s never recorded a song before in their life , Unfortunately it never made my actual catalog though And I would never present it these days as a product of mine to my audience.”

What is the story behind evil girls?

“Glad you asked, I’m not sure if I just overreact about my girl problems or I’m just really emotional, But I tend to let girls get under my skin far too often, and alter my moods , force depression upon me and cause me to overthink. I was just in a really bad spot and extremely depressed whenever I wrote and recorded evil girls, The message behind it I would say is. Sometimes you have to hold back being your true self to new people, because your true self can push people away in the blink of an eye.”

If you could pick one or the other would you choose the money or the fame

“Quite honestly, Struggling with money has always been a huge headache and weight on my shoulders, To never have to stress money again would be a miracle and i could finally help everyone around me like i was destined to do , I hate seeing my family and I stressing over bills and expenses. Fame would be something I would have to get used to Because I’m not used to having that much attention because usually I feel like a burden to everyone in my path , But if I was to achieve fame I would do it to help myself,those around me and as well as the less fortunate , i just like to help people and do good things.”

If you could go back in time Or to the future Which one would you choose and why

“I would forsurely go back in time And stop myself and those around me from making mistakes and just achieve everlasting purity.”

Where do you see yourself in one year?

“I see myself as a respected popular icon in the music industry. Simply because I am manifesting it as well as working hard to achieve my goals.”

Where are you from?

A small town about an hour away from Pittsburgh called latrobe, an area in Westmoreland county. Home of the infamous Mr Rogers and where the banana split was invented, It’s a small quiet town With really no achievable goals out here And a system thats set up for failure, Which is why I work hard on my goals to move away and never look back and do what I love to do. If I ever achieved fame I would give back to my hometown in order to make it a better place for everyone that’s residing here.”

How old are you?

“24 , Started making music About five years ago and everyone around me including myself have noticed a huge improvement in the quality of my music in a very short amount of time, I truly believe I was born for this and that making music is my calling in life.”

Are you working on any projects right now?

“I’m always working to release new content for my audience, but I do have something special in store. My very first multiple song project and EP. Titled: Level 1. Full of emo rap style instrumentals and Juice WRLD type beats, sure to bring out my inner creativity and I have a feeling that my current and future audience will really enjoy it.”
