Artist Interview: AMD
Tell us about yourself and your music
I have been writing music since I was 12. I am now 18, and have released one mixtape and will be releasing my second soon. The first project was called ReCorydon, I am from Corydon Indiana, and the next one is called ReCorydon: The Back Story. This January I signed a publishing, marketing and distribution deal with Bentley Records. I am very excited about moving forward with my music and getting more listeners.
Talk to us more about your latest release
My latest release was very popular locally. It is available in some shops and on Soundcloud. The most popular song seems to be Swank. This project, ReCorydon, was simply a demo tape to get my name out there. The project was only 5 songs and just over 17 minutes. I am very much looking forward to putting out my new music.
What inspired you to write this release?
I have been working on my music for years now and was ready to get some of my material out there. So I released the project on my 18th birthday.
Any plans to release a video?
Any plans to hit the road?
Not yet, but hopefully in the future.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
I use social media, I rap to groups of people when I can, and I give out free cd’s
Who have you been listening to lately?
I listen to J. Cole, Logic ( a lot of Welcome to Forever) Meek Mill, Futuristic, some Rhianna, and much much more… Joey Badass
Tell us about your passions
Nothing else compares to music.
What else is happening next in your world?
Well I am about to graduate high school and go to college, but still focusing on music.
Thanks for an awesome interview, Ayden!
