Exposed Vocals: So tell us your story. Where did you grow up? What made you decide to become an artist?
We grew up on the outskirts of Houston Texas: The Conroe/spring area. And we decide to become artist when we realized we'd been preparing for it our whole lives, and are actually good at it. Growing up we religiously watched music videos and listened to the radio. Eventually that lead to us mimicking what the rappers out at the time were doing and then once we got that first performance high from getting a crowd hyped there was no turning back.
Exposed Vocals: Since everyone was a start-up once, can you give any smaller or local bands or artists looking to get gigs and airplay some tips?
Focus on crafting your sound and building your brand. Once your name starts buzzin everything will come to you.
Exposed Vocals: Do you ever make mistakes during performances? How do you handle that?
As the saying goes, the show must go on. You practice to avoid as many mistakes as possible but they’ll happen anyways so you gotta just go with it and learn from your mistakes.
Exposed Vocals: Any planned studio upgrades? What are you working with now?
Right now were working at Phocus Studios. They're using a Neumann TLM 67 running through an Avalon vt737 preamp. The homie Bigg Cuz does all our beats in Pro Tools and in FL Studio. We’re planning on upgrading to UAD Apollo 8 in the very near future.
Exposed Vocals: How do you find ways to promote your music? What works best for you?
Online and in person. Honestly, what works best for us is word of mouth from our live shows. Once the crowd hears what we have to offer, there’s usually a good amount in the room that “gets it” and will vibe with us and spread the word to their people.
Exposed Vocals: If you could perform anywhere and with any artists (Dead or Alive) where and who would it be with? Why?
Eminem at the Astrodome back in 2000 during the Up In Smoke tour. Why? Because not only would it automatically go down in rap history but it's also the only opportunity I've ever had to see him perform live here in Houston, and couldn't go because I was "too young" and always hated that I missed it, so performing with him is the only way to make up for it. lol
Exposed Vocals: So, what’s next? Any new upcoming projects that you want to talk about?
The Weekend Warriors Ep. It’s our first one for sale and will be available everywhere online so everybody go get that when it drops later this summer.
Exposed Vocals: If you weren’t making music, what would you be doing?
Probably screen writing or trying to figure out another way to keep from going insane.
Exposed Vocals: What should fans look forward to in the next year or so?
Growth. We’re still growing as artist and look forward to continuing to make each project better than the last one by expanding on our production and song content.
