Tell the people about yourself.
My name is Noah, but my stage name is ‘Apollo’ i am 21 and originally born and raised from Roseville California but moved to Dallas Texas a little over a year ago. I started making music with a friend in california who I eventually had a falling out with, leading me on my own musical path. And its what built what my music is today, finding a way to do it no matter what, it is truly all i dream of. Seeing people listen to my art, something i have constructed from nothing, its so much more to me than a future career. It is something i live for. It is my calling, my passion, my future. And i plan to die as ‘Apollo’
Do you have any tips for artists?
To anyone looking to get into the music industry, if you truly believe you want this. Take it. Push until you get what you want, it may seem impossible and trust me I’ve thought that too. It isn’t, you will always be able to achieve your goals if you just put your heart and soul into it. So shoot past the stars, and chase what you wanna do. Always.
How long have you been making music?
I started making music around 2016 and released my first EP on soundcloud by the name of ‘Happy Thoughts’ and trust me when i say it was not up to my expectations nowadays. But i look back and still love that project. I made it with one of my best friends who goes by ‘Common Sense’ just one of the many artists i work with that is in it with me for life, i had more than 12 albums in my discography up until a couple weeks ago where i wanted a fresh start, and worked with new people such as ‘C-X’ and ‘Distraction’ and they have helped me grow musically, this year will have marked 6 years busting my ass to make a career out of music. And i will happily do it even longer.
What are your music goals?
My goals for my music is to be able to create my visions and tell my stories and write new stories, and for people to listen. I want to be able to make this my full time job. 24/7 music, shows, fans, i live to entertain as well as to create. Im on this earth for a very little amount of time so i will leave my mark. I love this community so much, and i want to be a part of it. Forever.
Who or what inspires you to create music?
I have many inspirations to push me to do it more, my main inspirations will always be my parents of course, they support my dreams just as much as all of my best friends and other family does. Its truly family and friends that matter most to me. Always support your homies, and hopefully they support you back. Its full circle, i also have always been inspired by the rappers and artists i look up to, Logic being top of that list, he is who got me into hip hop, hearing the incredible true story for the first time opened my mind. And ever since. Hip hop was more than just music to me.
We had to ask… who are your top 5 artists?
I listen to hundreds of artists but if i had to narrow down just 5, not in any order, i would have to say – Logic, Action Bronson, $uicideboy$, Kendrick Lamar, & MF DOOM
