Exclusive Interview: Rising Artist DeeVine
What is your name and what city do you rep?
Tell us about your latest releases, what inspired you to create them?
My latest release, “Put My Momma In A House” was inspired by my personal why when it comes to following my dreams that I feel many from humble beginnings can resonate with! I wanted to create something that those people can easily digest through a medium they’re used to and use as a method of manifestation. Words are powerful and I believe this song can serve as a hood anthem to give young creatives hope and remind them to remember their way and go after their dreams.
What is unique about you and your music?
What is unique about me and my music is simply that it represents all facets of who I am. The spiritual, the activist, the feminine, the masculine, the ghetto, etc. Not only that but my music will always serve as an affirmation no matter the surface level context of it. There will always be some hidden gems.
What shaped your music?
What shaped my music is my life and personal experiences.
When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?
When I found myself left with nothing but pen, paper and passion after a tough period where I had lost so much. During this time, I would see angel number 1111 so much to the point that it no longer was about “making a wish”; I realized it was a sign to remind me that I was on the right path towards finding my purpose in life. At that moment, I made a vow to myself to keep going and never quit! All I can think about is Jay Z saying the genius thing we did was never quit! So my success is inevitable!
What type of music do you listen to?
I listen to neo-soul, afrobeats, Caribbean music and older hip hop.
What inspires you to write music?
I find inspiration in the life and experience of myself and those around me. In the past most of my music came from a space of pain but today I am finding inspiration beyond just trauma but also from a space of manifesting my desires as well.
What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?
I’d like to think of myself as a self-proclaimed tv critic, I love to dance, skate, and travel!
Happiness to you is…
In living a life where daily I get to create and do what I’m passionate about with the people I’m passionate about.
Be your biggest fan and the rest will follow!
Tell us about your upcoming projects…
Right now I just plan to release singles monthly until I release my 2nd EP. The singles are to explore my versatility while the EP will allow my supporters to explore my soul.
