YBC Tha NeRd – Work

 

YBC Tha NeRd is an aspiring hip-hop artist who became the talk of town for his unique talent of combining hip-hop with EDM. The YBC stands for “Young Brotha n Charge” – which is his stage name. Born in the South Side of Chicago, Illinois, YBC later moved to the South Suburbs which was where he grew up. YBC Tha NeRd currently resides in North America in Indiana, but he still represents Chicago with all his heart. Although YBC’s music encircles more of a hip-hop approach, he likes to refer to himself as a nerd which is one of the things he loves about himself, and as his stage name suggests. A diehard lover of video games, TV shows, and even comics, YBC has pulled most of his topics and bars from these things. Moreover, the nerd in YBC happens to be an aficionado of science as well, and so, you are likely to hear a little bit of science with a mix of personal experiences, and in some songs, even politics. If that wasn’t enough, YBC Tha NeRd is also a lover of universal vibration and frequency, which he uses to write his lyrics and record his music. For the future, YBC intends to add some history and culture into his music as well.

Elaborate on the production of the song.

The song is pretty edgy – Merging of hip hop and EDM. Sort of reminiscent of Run DMC and Aerosmith merging hip hop and rock. Crazy synths and heavy bass takes over till you’re nodding along.

60% asshole and 40% good guy – All NeRd.

Discuss your existence as a musician.

I am here to make dope music. I am very particular about the sound, the clarity, and the overall message I deliver.

.

.

.

Go into details on the changes in your life for choosing music as a career.

Music has always been hard. I don’t think most people understand how expensive and time consuming this industry is; as I write this it’s 7 a.m. and I haven’t slept in about 20 or so hours. Trying to balance a personal life and professional is tricky.

.

.

.

Tell us the benefits and drawbacks of choosing music as a career.     

Not sleeping and being broke all the time is definitely a drawback lol. But when someone tells me hey I love your music or they have me in their playlist that’s a plus all day.

.

.

.

Tell us how you will manage fame as an established artist.

I will definitely be the same guy. But some personal aspects of my life will have to keep private. I’m not afraid of the fame or the social media crazies.

.

.

.

Elaborate on the storyline of this song.

The song is about putting in the work to get to where you want to be. Also telling that person next to you to get his or her ass up and get it in gear. It’s go time.

Explain what you have in mind before considering music as a career.

I wanted to be a business owner. Music is almost the same because as an artist I am a businessman.

.

.

.

Discuss your experience in life.

I grew up a nerd; I got picked on teased you know how it goes. I didn’t really come into my own until I hit college. I’ve always been a gamer from Sega, to PlayStation, to Xbox. My parents raised me pretty well but sometimes stepped outside the line which strained my relationship with them both.

.

.

.

Name the artists that have influenced the world.

Lupe fiasco, Mickey Factz, Michael Jackson, prince, Common, Kanye West, Ab-Soul, MF DOOM, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Pharaoh Monch, and I’m probably forgetting others.

.

Discuss your moment of rejections as a musician/artist and how you are able to cope and move on with your career.

Tell us the most negative comment you have ever received.

I was told by another artist that I was too intelligent when I rap. And that all that smart/conscience rap was wack.

For Immediate Release: Cape Cod based singer-songwriter Catherine King is set to release her first full length album on October 2, 2018. Produced and recorded at Brick Hill Studio in Orleans, MA by Grammy nominated Jon Evans, the album also features drummer Liam Hogg and fiddle player Dinah Mellin. The album, titled Hold On To Your Heart consists of nine original songs and two cover tunes. This is a first for Catherine, who usually does not do covers.  “These two songs have meaning to me, and I thought I’d do something different and record them, and include them on this record. I hope I did them justice.” The title track is the only co-write on the album. Written with Steve Hamilton, the song is the result of Catherine’s efforts to grow her writing through collaboration.  “I don’t usually co-write, and I’m still trying to learn how to relax and just be open to all possibilities. It can be tough sometimes though, because my songwriting is very personal. I’m trying to be more objective these days.” Hold On To Your Heart will be available for download on CDBaby.com on October 2, 2018, and CDs will be available there soon as well. You can also buy a CD by going to http://www.catherinekingmusic.com and leaving a message there.

Explain the story behind the song.

I was driving home to Cape Cod from Toronto, early in the morning. I was almost at the Canadian border, when I noticed the highway just seemed to disappear into the sky…I may have been a bit tired. The song started forming in my head, and for the rest of that 9 hour drive, I mentally worked on it. When I finally got home, I sat down with my guitar and wrote the entire song. It’s actually one of my favorite songs on the album.

.

.

.

List the radio stations, television stations and blogs that have aired or featured your new song.

Ocean 104 – the Cheap Seats with Cat Wilson; the song is brand new, so I’m sure there will be more, but it’s just getting started.

.

.

.

State the names of other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director.

No band, just me.

.

.

.

Tell us how long you have been in the music business, your experience and your future goal.

I’ve been singing and writing since I was a teen. After graduating Berklee College of Music, I gave up music for over 15 years to raise my three sons. I didn’t get back to it until I went to Newfoundland to visit family. They are very musical and encouraged me to go back to writing and playing.

.

.

.

Tell us what makes you unique from others.

I’m a 51 year old mother of three boys…I work a day job as a Contract Administrator, working with Government Contracts (heavy stuff). Since I use my brain all day, when I get home I just want to play my guitar and sing, and hang out with my boys. It’s my release. Of course, I’d much rather be a full time singer-songwriter, but so far I still need a day job to make ends meet. It’s not easy being an indie artist.

Explain the story behind the song.

Our former manager that thought we needed a killer rock ballad got us in touch with Tommy Henrikssen (guitarist in Alice Cooper) and Mark Holman (Grammy nominated producer/songwriter, Chris Daughtry, Shinedown, Goo Goo Dolls). They sent us the song Closure and we loved it from the start. So we started to re-produce it so it would fit us better and we sent it back to the guys and loved Lukas voice on the track. So all agreed that the song fitted us and we released it.

Go into detail on why you decided to choose music as a career.

From a very young age I saw how music affected people in every aspect of their lives. There was reverence for musical prowess and ability. Strong relationships to philosophical concepts that permeated everywhere through music. I felt it to be one of the most noble of pursuits that I could take on. Listening to lyrics from all kinds of artists exonerated me through some of my darkest moments and accentuated blissful aspects to my personal victories. It was then that I knew I wanted to have music as my life … and my life to be music. Another big aspect to my gravitation to music was the fact that I was labeled dyslexic and struggled greatly academically. It was very easy for me to express myself in a song. Very different than trying to perform acrobats in a multitude of subjects in the academic framework of education. It gave me courage and strength and ability in ways that other things just couldn’t. It created some amazing competition within myself and forged wonderful friendships all over the world.

.

.

.

Brief us the feedback you are getting from fans on your music.

I am always so elated to hear from people that are enjoying the music and have become official “Ed Heads” 🗿. It never ceases to amaze me as to how many people from all over the world I have heard from. I am so honoured and proud that the music helps punctuate their lives in ways that other things perhaps can’t. I am also happy to hear about people that don’t enjoy the music. Quite often I will say thank you and I am appreciative of the fact that they have an opinion.

.

.

.

Discuss the relevance of social networking to music.

Social networking is one of the most important tools that we have at our disposal. Many businesses, companies, artists and just about everybody that is doing anything is on social media has a presence in the digital ether. It has made many things that we do very easy. As a result of this there are many things that have become more difficult. I would say there isn’t as a robust and active outgoing community of people participating in live music events other than musicians themselves. This has really created a shift in the social framework of how people listen and or obtain their music. It’s really Occam‘s razor. A proverbial double edge sword that breeds and scars at the same time… “May you live in interesting times” ancient Chinese proverb…

.

.

.

Tell us how you record your song.

I never try to put any rules or regulations on the recording process other than to feel my way through and instinctually listen to what is required of the moment. This is what creates healthy and happy breeding ground for my art.

.

.

.

Tell us the story behind the song.

Red Omen… The title track of the record and song is of course an anagram of my own name. I was labelled a dyslexic as a child. I hate labels…🗿.

 

One of the most important things that I’ve ever achieved in my life is to break this barrier. The barrier of being told I was stupid. In the 1970s when I was diagnosed as a dyslexic the education system told my mom that I was incapable of learning correctly. That I was hyper active and I should be put on medication. My mom frankly said “bullshit…” my son loves to learn and you’re not going to put him on medication just because he has an active mind. She spent years of her time with me practising reading and spelling probably to the point that most parents would’ve given up. She also recognized that I loved music and that by putting a guitar in my hand at a very early age was one of the best tutoring programs I could’ve ever have had. The story of course behind the song is the story about me. The story of my early childhood and some of the allegories… through my life whether they are factitious or based in fact. It pays homage to some of the people that have helped me where I am today in my career. It offers a doorway into the future for where I may venture next. Regardless I couldn’t think it more apropos for somebody that was labelled with a learning disorder to become an accomplished, published acclaimed and award winning singer songwriter whose music is listen to all over the world.

.

.

.

State your musical skills.

I’m a storyteller I am a bass player by trade but I also play guitar. Everybody has a drummer inside but I definitely play full drum kit and a multitude of percussive instruments. I also play a little keyboard and enjoy playing my Hammond organ and Fender Rhodes piano. Like Zappa I would say I have skill and abilities but I have raging amplitude and never ending waterfall of imagination.

.

.

.

Tell us how long it takes to complete a song from the start.

There is no math in the studio or the mind of my musical existence. I never try to put any kind of timeframe scale or equation on a song, its development or anything that has to do with its creation. I am continually writing whether it is on paper my guitar behind a drum kit or even in my mind. There are some songs I have rolling around in my head that I have not even committed to paper yet. I can write a song in a short period of time especially if it comes to me that way and there are others that take months of deliberation in order to fine-tune and hone its existence. It’s very difficult to answer that kind of question. I’ll just say dialectically between seconds to forever… 😉

.

.

.

Go into detail on how you develop your lyrics and melody.

OK time for the cosmos to interject. Song writing to me is extremely meditative and it comes through deep contemplation and expansion of my conscious thoughts and relinquishment of my ego. There are times my thinking process seems to be mingled in a confluence by another kind of energy or a form of the Akashic records. There are songs that I have written and I don’t know where they come from or how the melody was even created other than feeling this framework inside of me needs to come out. There is so much going on in this process that it’s really hard for me to create a graph for you based on some kind of symmetry… I just know for me it feels divine and almost transcendental.

.

.

.

Discuss music in full details.

I mean I could write a book for you if you wish 40 or 50 chapters… or perhaps in encyclopedia… I will say this because I am so often ask questions like this. I hold this statement true to my heart and it is never left my mind from the very moment I read it… “The definition of an artist is one who has the ability to fuse their life with the rhythm of the times” …Herbie Hancock…

 

There are so many things we could say about music and one of the novelties that we have found ourselves in is the business of music. Music is far more than a song in the airwaves or an epic solo at a stadium. It is the very fabric of everything inside of our universe. Working together in an incredible symphony and tapestry of vibrating layered and woven molecules of atoms which is the proverbial glue of the time space continuum.

.

.

.

State your five favourite genres of music with reasons.

Desert island questions are very difficult to answer. There are so many amazing artists and people and genres that I have fallen in love with and will continue to do so. I am a lover of rhythm and blues, jazz, soul, rock ‘n’ roll and anything that has a lot of mojo hanging out of it…

.

.

.

Discuss your rehearsal.

Rehearsals are very different for different reasons.. Sometimes you’re rehearsing for live shows which means you’re running songs and preparing sets. Other times you are rehearsing for studio dates and record albums. This could involve part of the creative process and arranging process which will eventually come to be the framework of the song. Other times rehearsals are about trying to figure out what works best inside of the developmental process. This could mean running the same idea for hours and trying to understand its emotions and feelings and everything about what is happening with it. Other times I cast. That means playing other people’s music. I heard Carlos Santana talk about this. After a while once he relinquished these feelings which are really based in appreciation you start to listen to yourself and the things that your soul and imagination want to say. This is the elevator door to the ethereal…

.

.

.

State your favourite musical instruments.

The Human Voice

 

1968 to 1972 Fender Jazz basses

 

Hammond B3 organs is with Leslie

 

Drums

 

Big brass.

Describe the chemistry between you and your fans during a live performance.

It’s kind of like when you have electricity inside of a gas environment. When the amplitude is correct the gas through the charged electrical atmosphere will emit photons. Very bright…. bring your welding glasses… arc light…

.

.

.

Discuss your personality in full details.

That’s a great question and I think it would be very difficult for me to answer but in the most humblest of ways I would say ask anybody that knows me what kind of a person I am and what my personality is like.. I consider myself to be a neo-pantheist non-conformist and much of my personality is based in humour and sarcasm…

Share your memorable experiences with us.

I have so many memorable experiences… most of them are mine and mine alone. Some of which may not be overly interesting to others but to me they are very special and unique. Music is always connecting me with people and experiences all over the world. I have been on huge stages in front of thousands of people and I have also played to just a few that needed to hear a kind word in their time of crisis. All of them are extremely important to me and fulfill a greater part of my existence.

Ed Roman. “Hey!!! Did I ever tell you that I grew up with Red Omen…had all sorts of really cool things to play with like a plutonium spaceship lunchbox and a bathtub full of Lego”
