I am PhilAhsophie, a recording artist.  I am originally from Kansas City, Missouri, but I live in Austin, TX. I started my career by performing Hip-hop at house parties and other venues around town. Later I began to record voice tracks.  My art form is comparable to inspirational rap-poetry – with music of course and can be therapeutic for some and motivational for others. I enjoy sharing my passion with the masses, and I don’t do this for the limelight or to prove anything to anyone.  I sincerely enjoy articulating words that I have composed with the public. If people enjoy my music then I’m cool and it makes me very happy.  If not, hopefully my newest work, whatever it may be, may sway critics to enjoy what I do and to listen whole-heartedly to the words of my songs.  I am unique and I do not attempt to follow any trends.  I am simply authentic with my craft.  I can also say that my tracks would be more on the socially conscious side. I like to touch on different topics that everyday people can relate. I also aim to deliver positive vibes and uplifting messages. I just like to make music that anybody can enjoy hearing without any negative content that would mislead our youth. My music is for the soul and to enlighten.  Thank you for reading and be assured that more music will follow, and I DO appreciate your online support, continue to enjoy or follow me as I hope to elevate my music to another level of enjoyment.

 

Peace!

Brief us on how to impress fans during a live performance.

Really feel the music that you perform. When you are passionate about a particular song – performance, that energy comes with it.  The audience will reciprocate your energy and feel what your music gives. Basically don’t just go with the flow or imitate somebody else swag. Come with your own energy and let the vibe radiate off you naturally.

.

.

 

List the names of your biggest supporters.

I would have to say that my fan base are my biggest supporters. Can’t name them all individually.

.

.

.

 

Explain what has motivated you so far in your music career.

Mainly Hip Hop from the 90s era. I eventually developed my own signature style. I like being able to convey thoughts, experiences, and certain aspects of life lyrically and creatively.

.

.

.

Discuss your experience as an artist.

I began by rhyming over beats in house parties, clubs, and ciphers around the area of Austin TX. Later I experienced some touring and being on stage with a few local groups. Eventually I decided to just do my own solo tracks. My first live performance was Coast2Coast live 2017.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the biggest mistake you have ever made in your music career.

I guess not putting my solo music out sooner than later in life. Although I try to take things as learning experiences instead of regrets.

.

.

.

 

Discuss the story behind the song.

“Reflections” is about thought releasing on certain aspects of life. Giving perspectives from my personal growth and how Hip Hop can be like therapy.  When used in the right way to be specific. Allowing listeners to hear for themselves what I lyrically convey.  They can evaluate the logic and reasoning for themselves. In general my tracks are not only to be thought provoking but nostalgic to the golden era of Hip Hop in a sense. I enjoy bringing my own signature style and rhyme display.

.

Tell us how to fund a music project.

A recording artist can start from using crowd funding services to gaining sponsorship. There is plenty online information for that.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your opinion on the safety of fans during shows and live performances.

I would simply advise people to simply go for the enjoyment. Recording artists should also focus on the positives. Leave out any negativity or ridiculous beefs and that will help to eliminate bad experiences. Although things tend to happen in this world – a lot can be prevented that way. In other words it is better having a good time.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the greatest piece of advice someone has given you as an artist.

To be original with my style for the most part. I do my best and faith does the rest.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you will improve or change in your music.

I never follow one particular format or idea for music. Each track will have its own type of message and vibe. I tend to be my own worst critic that critiques his own lyrics. Like they say “practice makes perfect” so my skills can only enhance with each EP release.

.

.

.

 

Discuss vocal training and how you protect your vocal.

From my own personal experience I find that keeping myself healthy helps. Like they say “health is wealth” in a sense.

.

.

.

 

Share your press release and reviews with us.

Well that sort of varies with different viewpoints. People can check my social media, fan base, play numbers, and the profiles that should speak for themselves. I just enjoy making the music and sharing for the most part.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your best mood during performance.

When I can vibe to my own music while feeling the energy of going live.

.

.

.

 

List your best artists with reasons.

I would say that recording artists such as Lauryn Hill & Mos Def from the east based on creativity & rhyme skills. Then Bun B & Andre 3000 from the south were some of my favorites there. These are recording artists with different approaches but all share one thing in common. That is being able to paint a vivid picture lyrically while displaying actual skills & tracks that vibe. Although there are great emcees from every coast that had an influence on me.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your existence as an artist.

I express myself from the soul. I’ll give this for example. Any testimony should not come from fabrication. Each should have their own to provide. Everybody has a unique characteristic about themselves. I intend to express myself lyrically in that sense while showing that I actually have talent. I’ll include my fan base because without them I would probably not be motivated to make music on a professional level.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the greatest problem you think is facing the society and the solution.

I would say that racism is society’s greatest issue in general. That has taken part in the judiciary, employment, political, and educational system. A solution would be to focus on more second chance options for those needing it. In addition more cultural history is important to help kids enhance knowledge of self-awareness. Decrease the anger and frustrations of lacking hope and more positivity will follow. These things can actually help with that issue. Although racism is unfortunately ongoing and a part of everyday life that cannot be eliminated completely. The point here is that there are ways to better the situation and resolve issues.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your songwriting and recording.

I write what helps me to vent out certain thoughts along with expressing my creativity. I build on self-critique to enhance my writing skills. I find that reading more books can enhance the writing and thought process. In a professional studio my imagination goes free and I am more drawn into the music making process. I like being in that zone of feeling good vibes.

.

.

.

 

State your artist name and elaborate on it.

My artist name is more creative than it is standard. Yet with similar meaning of the standard form. My artist name relates to the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence. A focus on content of character is more important to me in a positive light. I try to convey that along with originality and my own views within lyrics.

.

.

.

 

State the title of the song and the meaning.

The title of my track is “Reflections” that is about conscious awareness and self-expression. The lyrics were meant to be insightful and thought provoking. Listen to the track and get my message in more detail.

.

.

.

 

State the title of the album and the reason for choosing the title.

The title of my EP is “Reflections” also. I chose this title to display insightful lyrics and express certain thoughts lyrically. It came from actually having much time reflecting on things in life including some personal and learning experiences. My lyrics come from a mature level of thought while displaying talent. While showing how I am able to use complex rhyme schemes with use of metaphors and word play; making sense with it all at the same time.
