Exclusive Interview: Rising Artist Chud’e
What is your name and what city do you rep?
My name is Chude and I’m based in New Jersey.
Tell us about your latest releases, what inspired you to create them?
My two newest singles are Clouds and Love is blind. I never intended to write Clouds but alot of people are suffering right now and I figured it would be a good time to bring forth a message of faith, hope and endurance. Love is blind on the other hand is an r&b track that I had fun with.
What is unique about you and your music?
I’m completely transparent. I look to speak to the soul.
What shaped your music?
Life experiences and artists that I listened to growing up. I was born in the 90’s so alot of my influence comes from artists from that era.
When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?
It started in 2017. I met a few like minded individuals and it all just took off from there.
What type of music do you listen to?
Mostly hip hop, rock and gospel music. I’m open to other genres as well.
What inspires you to write music?
I consider myself a hope dealer. I’m all about inspiring others and that includes my faith and/or life experiences.
What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?
I love working out and reading manga.
Happiness to you is…
Contentment. It’s something that money can’t buy.
What do you wish you were told when you first started making music that you think would help artists just starting out?
Take your time. What’s meant to be will be. Don’t try to grow too fast because that can actually lead to unnecessary adversity in the future.
Tell us about your upcoming projects…
I’m working on my sophomore album “Beauty from Ashes” currently scheduled for release at the end of the year.
