Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth, and childhood experience.
My Name is Dorion Smith (aka the “Smifbrud Prince”). I’m From the US, born November 19, 1988. I come from a small family based in Washington State. I spent most of my childhood in Seattle, then moved to Richland, in eastern Washington, in the summer of 2002. I graduated from Richland High in 2007 and had my daughter in April of 2010.

 

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience, and skills.
I have been writing music since I was in grade school. I started taking it seriously after I realized I had raw talent that I dare not waste! I have a musical background of mostly R&B Soul, Hip Hop, Jazz, and lots and lots of bass! I am an artist, songwriter, engineer, and vocalist.

 

Tell us about your genre, concept, and idea behind your music video and the song.
 I do mostly Hip Hop and R&B. I like to embrace the struggle of the underdog and the grind of putting in work for what you want in life. The concept of this whole project focuses on embracing where I am from/where I live and what lessons I have to pass on to the next aspiring go-get-er.

 

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.
I am a father trying to make a legacy for my young of how to put integrity and honor into everything you do-and that goes far beyond the music. I try my best to embrace the downs of the business more so than the ups. It makes for so much more of a sweeter high when it comes!! As far as I am concerned the only “L’s” I am going to take is a “Lesson”- negative and positive alike. I keep my mouth closed and my eyes and ears open. The Nay-sayers are nonexistent.

 

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew, or music video director, how the song was recorded, and how the music video was shot.
At this point, I am a “solo” everything. I have a couple of friends who help me on the boards and what-not when I am recording, other than that, it’s just me baby!

 

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience, and your future goal.
I am just barely getting my name out there the last couple of years. Right now  I am focusing on promoting my music and getting it out to the public to hear.  I have been constructing projects successfully now for about three years. I have a total of four independent projects on wax and ready for digital download on multiple digital platforms, including cd baby,  band camp, Soundcloud, and more.  My future goal is to take advantage of every digital platform available and get as many streams as possible. I also plan to reach out and network with other artists and build relationships.

 

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.
My main inspiration right now would be partly a good momentum that I have kept going after realizing my talent. It also stems from the emotions and the feelings that I experience when I listen to different songs, beats, stories, or any other content that allows me to step outside and challenge myself to have empathy for others.

 

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.
I will not pretend like I know the exact formula to make a hit song but what I have found to work is to just “let the beat ride”. Allow yourself to really feel the beat and let your mind/body/soul go wherever the feeling takes you. I think with these types of things, normally, whatever comes to you first is right. Just go with it.

 

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there. 
If I could pass along a message to my fans it would be, life is short.  This is my life, and I want to spend it enjoying what I do.  I really enjoy making music. And I just so happen to be good at it. Why not do what you want to do in your life right? The only difference between me and the next guy is I have no problem doing the work.  Just give me a couple of minutes of your time and you can decide for yourself.

 

Tell us the piece of advice you will give to an upcoming artist. 
The best advice I have thus far that I could give to an upcoming artist would never ever doubt yourself. You absolutely have to believe that whatever you are striving for is possible if you are willing to put in the work. And never allow your pride to keep you from learning a lesson or growing as a person.

 

List Radio or TV Stations that are airing your songs and blogs that have featured you as well and send messages to them via this platform.
I have been reposted on numerous Soundcloud channels and I am currently awaiting a repost on Eternal Network, a multi music platform channel. I was featured on the CCG network in September this year for my single “1 Mic 2k16”. Also, I was mentioned in “50 best rappers in the Tri-Cities”. At this point in my music career right now I am really focused on promotion and marketing and getting across as many platforms as possible.

 

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio. 
My songwriting process almost always starts with the beat first. Once I hear the beat and I figure out where I want to go with it and how it makes me feel I go from there with either the verses or the hook.  I always go with what I feel.

 

Name five biggest artists that you look up to like idols.
I have a lot of favorite artists however I don’t follow them very much outside of Music.  If I had to just spitball the first ones that come to my head respectively of course it would be in no particular order, Nipsey Hussle, Wiz Khalifa, Curren$y, Big Sean, Fabolous, Tech N9ne.
 
Name the artists you have collaborated with before in your songs or artists you are willing to collaborate with in the future if you have the chance to do so. 
Some artists that I would like to collaborate with in the future will consist of the same names above that I consider to be idols and more. Especially some of the newer generation. I would love to collaborate with people like Post Malone, 6lack, SZA, Ella Mai, Roy Woods, NAV, things of that nature. I have collaborated with a slew of artists so far and hopefully more n the future. Some of the artists I have collaborated with include Whiteowl, Donny Dolo, Premo F., Pretty Fly, Slackademics, JW2, J Freeze, El Boogie, Capital, Alvy 97, TTEAL, The Dutch, and more.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.
One of the Happiest days in my life is undoubtedly when my daughter was born. I believe as a father that goes without being said but just so we’re clear 🙂 Also when I become an LMT and my career finally took off putting me in a much better financial position. The saddest day that I can think of to this day was when our cat “Booda” (aka Booty Boy) of 7 years died from cat-type cancer. My daughter and I were in shock as this was such a surprise and we were so attached to him. He was not just a cat, he was/is a member of our family. That was tough but we got through it. In fact, we still talk about him to this day.
