Tell me about how your creation part begins, and how is your workflow.
My creation comes from the universe, I hear something that resonates; I can’t make it happen, it just comes. The flow works when I’m doing something unrelated to music, and a thought, idea, or picture enters my brain. And, I’ll need to stop what I’m doing and write the idea down immediately. Thus, then get my hands on my guitar or piano and play what’s in my head or it’s gone forever.
Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration when I wake up each morning realizing life’s not promised. I’ve lived a little and I don’t take life for granted. Therefore, I appreciate the gift of life, and choose happiness by eliminate negative thoughts; I’m inspired when I open my eyes and take a breath.
When is your favorite time of day to create your music?
My favorite time of day to create my music is in the morning.
Describe how art is essential to society nowadays
In my opinion art has always been essential to society. Art is like a smile being universal, and music is a vehicle that reaches folks and brings them together. Art transcends: politics, religions, social norms, etc.
What motivates you to create?
I’m motivated by a desire to express myself and share with others. I love to up-lift sprits by spreading love, kindness, and having fun through music.
How do you define success as a music artist?
I define success in music by staying healthy because my health is my wealth. Therefore, success is doing music everyday, and being able to make a living at it. For me, it’s always been about the music; I’m more concerned about getting good that getting over.
Does art help you in other areas of your life?
Art is the reason I’m still here, if it wasn’t for art I’d probably be dead, or have made poor decisions. I grew up in the hood, so music occupied my brain and time, and kept me off the streets.
How do you develop your art skills?
My skills are developed by practicing, practicing, and more practicing. I don’t rely on talent, even though most artists are born with talent.
What is your next move?
My next move is to release more quality music in 2024, than I did in 2023.
Where will we see you in 5 years?
In the next five years you’ll see me at the top! And, I look forward to seeing you there!
