Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.
Well I was born and raised between Saint Louis, MO & Los Angeles County, CA. I got my start in music producing, writing, and featuring on tracks for other artists. Recently I decided I was ready to make the transition into becoming a full artist on my own, meaning writing, producing, and recording all my own material.
Where did the new single come from?
Wow, so this really is a great story. Believe it or not I still work a day job in an office in Van Nuys, CA. Well a new office assistant was hired recently, and I don’t believe in love at first sight, but she definitely is the closest I’ve come to it. One day I was staring at her with every intention of being caught looking and she asked me, “What?”, her tone was innocent of course. And trying as best I could to come up with the perfect cool response, I said something like, “Do I really need a reason to look at you?” At which she was caught off guard and speechless. Before she could answer I continued with, “Well you know what, I’m going to write down a few reasons of why I enjoy seeing you…”
A curious smile was her response. So as I thought of the reasons I wrote them down on post it notes and at the end of the day presented them to her and told her I would see her tomorrow. The next day she let me know that she thought it was sweet of me. Within about a week I finished the music and wrote the lyrics during my breaks, and the single ‘Reasons’ was born. She does currently have somebody, but that hasn’t changed how I feel about her. Maybe there will be more material to come from this situation, only time will tell.
Is there more content in the pipeline?
There is definitely more to come in the pipeline. I have two other singles ready to go for the fall and winter, and they definitely are stronger than ‘Reasons’, in my opinion at least. I’ve always talked about releasing a full length project, but I’ve learned to take things as they come. I’m very satisfied with releasing single after single until a full project becomes the goal. The reasoning behind this is I believe creativity should not be put inside a box, and focusing on creating a sound for a project or limiting my creativity to one project can take away from the body of work I have as a whole. So for now I will be dropping more and more material until the time is right for a full length project. But definitely tune in, some great things are in the works.
What’s on the horizon for you?
Man, not to get all cliche and philosophical on you, but everything I want is on the horizon. I’m in a much better place creatively to do what I want without the pressures of focusing on other artist projects. I’m in a comfortable spot where I can focus on myself as an artist, and really take the business part out of it and make some great material for my fans. To sum it up, big things are happening right now. Like Donald Trump HUGE! Haha. Thanks Purple Melon.
