Artist Interview: #CTGenius
What inspired you to write this release?
I was inspired by my will to succeed. I really want to make a name for myself among the hip hop legends. I want my music to sustain the lifestyle I always dreamed of. I studied professors at Stanford’s lectures on writing better music. I wrote and recorded daily. I really wanted to be the best artist I possibly could and release the best music I possibly could. The women in my life, the women I wished were in my life, my freaky experiences and my freaky imagination also played a part to inspire me.
Any plans to hit the road?
I’m working on relaunching my album first. Then looking into doing more touring.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
I try to stay as authentic to myself as possible. There’s only one me. My music is about my personal experiences, no matter how embarrassing or vulnerable they may sound, I draw strength from that. My style of singing is based on my own imagination as well as singers from the 30’s, 70’s and places current artists don’t visit. My clothing is kinda goth/ hip hop or anything that purposely stands out, but is really cool. That’s always been my style.
Who have you been listening to lately?
Tell us about your passions
Love. When I have a beautiful muse to play with. My son. I want to show him that we have a purpose and we should follow our dreams and our passion. Also he’s like my best bud. Money. I desire things that are easier to attain with money.
Thanks for an awesome interview, Charles!
