How long have you been working on your sound and music in general?
“Well, it all started in High School which I saw my brother working on music from his laptop in the closet. He would print these CDs and play the music for me sometimes. One day, I went in there on my own, he worked on Garage Band, it was mega foreign to me at the time, but I tried it. I recommend everyone try something new always. I didn’t make a song that day but I got to hear myself and yeah I have been working on my sound since 2014.”
Who are some artists you pull inspiration from?
“Honestly, I listen to a lot of current music, all the SoundCloud vibes, but I enjoy the classics, I really loved N.E.R.D, Lupe Fiasco, Kanye, and a lot of chill music like Mac Miller, Wiz, and JoeyBadass. The List can go crazy, Wayne, but hey I’m really a music lover at heart, I like what I like.”
Would you be open to signing With a Label?
“Definitely. Labels help in big ways that why they’re called the “Majors” I wouldn’t mind a publishing deal and maybe start getting in some of these writers’ rooms to spread my art/sound.”
