CANADIAN RECORDING ARTIST
Describe your style.
Old school R&B. soft melodies, big hooks but with current and up to date drum patterns, and 808s. I fell in love with R&B in the early 2000s so what I learned and appreciated all comes from that time.
Who or what has been your greatest influence on your style?
There’s so many
artists to be named and so much talent but I’ll always go back to the same
writers and producers like James Fauntleroy, Mdl, Harvey Mason Jr. from the Underdogs.
R&B music has something real about it I feel like it’s a genre that can’t be faked there’s too much emotions behind the words and harmonies.
How did you get started in your career?
Started very young at the age of seven just by messing around with instruments. Mimicking the sounds the instruments made with my voice showed me that I can sing. I would produce music and create demo ideas so instead of finding singers I would just sing on the songs myself. In 2018 a song I made with a known producer got picked up by some A-list American artists. In, 2021, I got playlisted on a Spotify R&B editorial playlist which got my music noticed as an artist myself.
What struggles or barriers did you face or are you facing to promote yourself and your work?
The hardest part about promoting yourself in a time we’re everything is manipulated on social media is to continue to be real. It might not get you noticed by a large fan base but being true to self and being real toward the people that do listen and support will create a real fan base that will support and promote you. Being genuine will attract genuine people who just have a love for the music/art you create.
What life lessons have you learned and how have they influenced your style?
Growing up in the places I did made me quiet and keep to myself , avoiding trouble always. The environment always lacked love and I think that’s why I turned to music especially r&b. No where Better to learn love of feel love then a love song .
Provide an example of your work that I can include in your interview.
A preview of my next song release. “Know You Better” will be out on all streaming platforms August 27th 2021.
