Tell us about yourself. 
I’m a Hip-Hop/R&B artist based in New York City. I’ve been writing and recording since a very age around 12. I released my first independent album worldwide in 2007 using Songcast and Myspace. I enjoy writing songs, poems, stories, among other things.

Tell us about yourself as an artist. 

I aim to express myself through my music using my own experiences and reactions to the different situations I’ve encountered in life, love and business so far. I’m a versatile and open-minded artist; I experiment with different genres and sounds. I look at music as art; there are so many colors we can choose from to create our expressions to inspire others.

Tell us about the genre of your music. 

I’m an R&B artist first. Along the way I’ve expanded my recordings within the genres of Hip-Hop, Pop, EDM, and Alternative-Soul. The song ‘Freaky Deaky’ is mostly a Hip-Hop track.

Tell us about the story behind your song. 
For a while I’ve had a girl that I’ve been talking to. By now I can figure her out and sort of get an idea of where we are headed. That is what sparked the idea for writing this song, and from there I created the beat, then the lyrics.

Tell us the challenges you are facing as a musician. 
I am learning new techniques with mixing and mastering, as well as vocal performances everyday. It’s hard to juggle all of these techniques and practice, meanwhile promoting myself and doing a 9 to 5 job. But I keep pushing and stay motivated to succeed!

.

Tell us about the recording and production of the song. 
‘Freaky Deaky’ was recorded at my studio and a third party studio. I used studio one to build the production as well as the vocals. I used auto-tune simply for the sound that it gives off to fit in with the beat. Also to be relevant, but most importantly just have fun with the track.

Tell us the names of blogs, radio or TV stations that have supported you so far. 
I’ve received some support so far from Kaboom Magazine, KelandMel Reviews, Singersroom.com, KTU Radio, Power 105.1 here in NY, the Underground Music Awards, and many others.

Tell us more about your music career, experience and future goal. 
I’m an independent artist and have been since I’ve released my debut album worldwide back in 2006. 11 years later, I’m still on the grind and making new music. I’ve learned so much along the way, and have collaborated with many producers and artists from all over the globe. I plan to push my current singles and album to get more exposure, as well take my career to the next level.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing. 
I’m inspired by everyday situations, life, love, friends, sex – the whole experience of life is what inspires me to write and sing what my emotions are feeling.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song. 
I believe the secret is an honest story and experience (and of course melodies with dope arrangement). It comes without even thinking too hard about it. It’s not forced and when it’s heard early on, many don’t even notice the potential hit that’s in their hands.

.

.

.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist. 
Definitely find yourself as an artist, experiment with sounds, lyrics, everything around you. See what works and fits you best. Then make them hits.

.

.

.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained. 
I’ve released about 12 or 13 albums & mixtapes online since 2006. Along the way I’ve gotten some opportunities such as an Underground Music Award nomination for Best Male Vocals, an acknowledgement from the International Songwriting Competition, and winning quite a few music showcase competitions here in New York.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.
I usually walk all around the studio with the beat playing, then I come up with my concept or if I already had a concept, I focus on what I want to say. I use a sound recorder to sing or rap what I’m thinking. Then eventually I start writing it all down either in my phone or lyric book. Even sometimes taking the train or bus the lyrics will come to me. Some songs I finish in a few days, some in a few months. I try to find comfortable studios to record in, no matter where I’m at I aim to be comfortable to focus.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day. 
My happiest day as I can remember was my birthday in 2003. I was on a school trip to Grammy In The Schools event. It was a great event and I got to meet major artists as well as industry executives in the game. It was so much fun also inspiring. My saddest day was when I was jumped back in 2010 by a bunch of guys for my phone and iPod. I was very angry and wanted to retaliate but chose the higher road to just move on.

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars. 

I’d have to have a million dollars to tell you that. I would buy a house, car, give some money to family, and of course donate to the many shelters here in NY who really and can use the extra money.
