The Music

How long have you been doing music? 8 Years

What made you decide to go in that direction? I been though hell and back, in the trenches for so long that music has been my only escape since I was a young age.

What is your inspiration for being in the music industry? Music takes people away from their troubles, every track i make i want people to be able to forget the world around them.

When your not in the studio what music do you listen to? mostly Hip Hop and old school Rock and Roll like CCR.

Did you ever think you will make a dent like you have? until the past two years i never really thought i was going to make a dent like I am. I always thought i had good music and if i met the right people could succeed. Thanks to my team and my mentor Michael Neely i now have the right people on my side that believe in me and my music.

Do you feel that you being white gives you a lot of challenges? I Believe me being a white man, I've experienced a lot of white privilege because of inequality in America. Just like in the music industry, me being white there is a lot of stereo types i have to overcome.

How did you come up with the single Bag IT Up? Im in the studio every night, i make at least 1 song a week and i just keep the best ones, Bag It Up was a keeper.

What is your future goals for success? First things first is to achieve the gold album from spotify for my single Bag It Up which is already half way there. After that they sky is the limit.

If you could ever do a cobalb with any artist who would it be and why? K Camp... i really enjoy his delivery on his lyrics and i think we would sound very well together on a track.

What advice can you give other who may follow your foot steps? You have to stay in your own lane, if your an artist be an artist. Don't get scatter brained always have tunnel vision. You must assemble a trustworthy marketing team also and build relationships and make connections with the right people in the business. Main thing of all is that you can never give up, it only takes one song to blast off
