Zenden Lavon began his career at age 11 when he realized the singing and dancing he’d been doing as a child was more than a hobby.

He was influenced by Bob Marley, the Fugees, Michael Jackson, and the Geto Boys.

Zenden was raised on the golden age of Hip-Hop and R&B and it shows in his production and lyricism.

Driven by the desire to spark emotion in his listeners, the Los Angeles native spent close to a decade watering the seeds of hip-hop in Dubai, being sponsored by Red Bull and opening for Nas at the massive Sole DXB event in Dubai.

Zenden Lavon is here to make a positive difference in people’s lives with good vibrations and sounds. Everything is for love.

Tell us how you arrange your song.

It varies but for ‘Honey Bourbon’ I started with a beat and then I built from there.

.

.

.

Discuss how you develop your music style.

I like to listen to a wide range of musical styles, anywhere from jazz to reggae to psychedelic rock.

.

.

.

Elaborate on multi-genre music.

Multi-genre music is artistic freedom for artists who don’t like to be pigeon-holed.

.

.

.

Tell us the best means of reaching fans.

I like to reach out to my fans by being personable and appreciative and just being myself.

.

.

.

Discuss the process involved in launching a musical career.

I believe it’s important to make good music and stay true to yourself.

.

.

.

Tell us how to develop a lyric to a full song.

Normally I make a beat that I’m inspired by.  Then I formulate a concept to write about.

.

.

.

Tell us how you come up with a melody.

I usually just freestyle what comes naturally when I’m listening to the instrumental.

.

.

.

Describe the factors you consider in a good song.

I believe a good song provokes strong emotion with an infectious beat or melody and is just fun and passionate.

.

.

.

Tell us how you impact your listeners with your songs.

I like to describe whatever I’m trying to convey as best as I can through either the music or the words so the listener can feel the emotion that I had when I was creating the song.

.

.

.

Tell us how you relate with producers and music directors.

Being that I’m a producer myself I can appreciate and understand the process and the importance of quality instrumentals.

.

.

.

Tell us how you feel after the completion of a song.

I’m usually proud of what I’ve done and most of my songs are emotionally taxing so when I’ve finished with my songs it’s a very satisfying experience.

.

.

.

Tell us your worst song and state the reason.

I wouldn’t say I have any “worst” songs.  Each song I’ve made is the best song at the time I’ve made it and each time I make a new song I’ve grown musically and try to make it better than the last.

.

.

.

Tell us what you will change in your music.

I’m still trying to find my sound and full originality as an artist.

.

.

.

Tell us what is special about this release.

‘Honey Bourbon’ is a different sound for me incorporating the trap sound.  I feel it shows my growth as an artist and it’s my first time being the creative force behind the visuals for the video.

.

.

.

Tell us about your future goals.

I just want to continue to grow as an artist and make good music.

.

.

.

Tell us how you overcome obstacles.

I overcome obstacles by writing about it in a song. Whether it’s a full song or just a line, writing about it is therapeutic for me.

.

.

.

Elaborate on the song.

‘Honey Bourbon’ was created based on the Musa: Prelude concept for my up and coming tape. It’s a power trip.  When you know you are destined for great things and have overcome many obstacles.

.

.

.

Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.

Zenden Lavon is my real first and middle name. Musa: Prelude is named after Mansa Musa, the ancient King of Mali also the richest man in world history. It is a coming of age story – When a prince is becoming king and the ups and downs of dealing with the responsibility of everything that comes with it.
