Artist Interview: Kenekia
What inspired you to write this release?
The song I have on Sound Cloud was a fun point in my life. Lol…. I was going out a lot, club hopping and going to kickbacks at friends houses. At the time, DJ Mustard was really hot! So I liked the track and wrote to it about the things I was seeing in the clubs and around me at the time.
Any plans to release a video?
I do plan on shooting another video. I don’t know when but it has to be more dope than my previous video. Lol…
Any plans to hit the road?
Hopefully, I plan to tour with Chris Gotti’s Add Ventures Music. Again this is a great platform for all indie artist to help monetize and promote your own music. This is the new wave of record labels today.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
I’m just different. Lol……To help myself stand out as an artist I do a lot of heavy internet marketing. I have a lot of songs on internet radio, I do a lot of interviews on the internet. I try to keep all my social media pages updated and current. I share my songs with other artist for likes in return. Im just always grinding. Its a non-stop process. I network with a lot of djays. I’m not big on gimmicks and tricks as an artist. I like to be as natural and just being myself.
Who have you been listening to lately?
I listen to everyone.
Tell us about your passions
My passion is to help the rest of the world and the music industry respect and see all the talented artist that Alabama has to offer. I think Alabama is very much over looked when it comes to any realm of talent and entertainment.
What else is happening next in your world?
I have to complete my latest EP and getting on the road doing more shows with Add Ventures Music.
Thanks for an awesome interview, Kenekia!
