Tell the people about yourself.
Age: 28 – October’s Very Own
City: Born and raised in Broward county between Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach. I spent most of my younger years moving and switching schools throughout Broward County. It was just my mom and I but even though we;ve always been a 2 piece we’ve also always been a family. My mother was a religious woman so I spent a lot of time going to bible study on Wednesdays, Prayer meetings on Fridays, youth practice on Saturdays, and ofcourse morning, afternoon, and evening services on Sundays. As a young child I was a bit troubled and was influenced a lot by my older cousins. So my mom did everything she could to keep me off of the streets from Broward County. Her remedy to this madness was keeping me busy. Between school and church I really never had too much time to get into any trouble during the academic school year but in the summer when schools were closed, things were a bit different.
Do you have any tips for artists?
The tip I have for artists is to block out the noise and connect to your creativity. It’s ok to be alone sometimes. Honestly, I think that I’m only able to connect with my creativity and write the music that I write when I’m deep in thought, alone. Also, eliminate the word can’t from your vocabulary because anything can be manifested with dedication and consistency.
How long have you been making music?
I’ve been making music since I was 4 years old. My first time sitting on the drumset and playing a beat was right after church on Sunday and I’ve been locked in ever since. Music has always owned the biggest part of my soul. I’ve been giving my music back to the county since I was a little boy. From Marching the sixtruct parade with the bands and Drumlines at Thurgood Marshall Elementary, William Dandy Middle School, and Blanche Ely High School which all got me prepared to be a part of Florida A & M University Marching 100.
What are your music goals?
One of my music goals is to create music that can serve as a catalyst to enhance the listeners emotional state of mind. I also want to grow into becoming a Platinum, Grammy nominated artist to showcase a small part of the talent and musical diversity from my city.
Who or what inspires you to create music?
Life would have to be my biggest source of inspiration when it comes to making music. There’s always a movement in life. From ups and downs, happiness and despair, achievements and setbacks we all experience changes in life the same way music changes and adapts in our cultural landscape. I also find inspiration from a multitude of artists. From Kodak Black, to Rick Ross, to Ye, to J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar and everyone in between. Hearing music from someone who was able to connect to their soul and create something new will always inspire me to keep pushing and to keep moving forward towards my goal.
We had to ask… who are your top 5 artists?
I think would have to be Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Kodak Black, J Cole and Kanye West.
Where can people find your music?
My debut release is out now, I hope you enjoy it!
