Artist Interview: AO TheHemp
Tell us about yourself and your music
Well I’m Aaron better known as AO or AoTheHemp I’m and independent artist . I started writing songs when I was about 16 . I started with a couple close friends at the time , and though we were making music , we were really just having fun . Not knowing much at all ,barley able to move around the software we began making some tunes . From new beats to different projects it became a more common hobby . I began to take it a bit more serious, I started thinking how could this benefit me , I wasn’t making any money off my music yet , I decided it was more than that . I wanted to make something that could reach people in a positive way , I came up w “Lifted” a term meaning nothing but positivity. I see it as we live in a world surrounded in negativity , which is hinder and holding so many of us back . So not only making good music was the mission but adding something positive to everything I did . I can understand not everyone could relate , but everyone’s been hurt , and being positive it nothing more than a mindset , so to be able to create a mindset through positivity is something everyone should want or want to relate to .No matter what situation you’re in a positivity is key . Stay Lifted .[/gravityforms]
