Exposed Vocals: So tell us your story. Where did you grow up? What made you decide to become an artist?
I was born and raised in Red Hook Brooklyn. Growing up in the 90's influenced who I am now as an artist and I didn't even realize it. When I was in elementary school I remember writing to instrumentals to random beats. I never would have thought that playing around at the age of 10 would be my starting point of where I am today. My mom was an artist before I even had the thought of writing music. She sang in this 80's classics group every weekend. She brought me to the studio with her when I was 6 or 7. I remember so vividly this one moment. The members of the group had asked me to come into the big glass room (a booth) and sing a song with them. At that moment right there I was an artist. The headphones got turned up and they said "SING!". But the funny thing is, my passion isn't for singing...its for rapping.
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?
Honestly all I can say from my prospecting of being an upcoming artist, is stay humble. You will get your moment to shine. But even at the beginning stages shinning is easy. You just have to play your cards right and build up your craft.
Exposed Vocals: Do you ever make mistakes during performances? How do you handle that?
I've had moments that I forget lyrics or mix up a part in the song. If that happens you do what you do best and perform. The greatest artist make mistakes but you don't realize cause they don't run off the stage or stop the show.
Exposed Vocals: Do you tour? Anything interesting happen on tour that you think our readers would enjoy hearing about?
That is one milestone I have yet accomplished yet. I''m sure when that time comes I'll have amazing moments.
Exposed Vocals: Any planned studio upgrades? What are you working with now?
Right now I'm planning on going to a local studio in Winter Park called Trackset. They have amazing professionals working there to help make your quality of music nothing less than great.
Exposed Vocals: How do you find ways to promote your music? What works best for you?
I use Instagram, snapchat and facebook to promote my music.
Exposed Vocals: If you could perform anywhere and with any artists (Dead or Alive) where and who would it be with? Why?
If I could perform any where it would be at the Grammy's. And to have an artist to perform with it would have to be Nicki Minaj. She is one of my favorite female artist. Her energy that she brings to the stage and the love for her fans is how I strive to be.
Exposed Vocals: So, what’s next? Any new upcoming projects that you want to talk about?
Right now I don't have any new projects. Im currently looking for a producer to work on a full EP with.
Exposed Vocals: If you weren’t making music, what would you be doing?
If I wasn't making music I'd be doing what my plan is for my future, becoming a registered nurse.
Exposed Vocals: What should fans look forward to in the next year or so?
I feel that fans should look forward to seeing me killing the stag at more events and hopefully more music soon.
Exposed Vocals: Any Shout-outs?
I'd like to make a shout out to God, because without him none of this would be possible. My mom as well, she has been my rock when it comes to my music since day one.
