As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
The way I do music now,and the lyrics, is I write kinda like I’m writing a book for each individual song, I write in full detail step by step so the listener can picture the whole scene that’s going on. Kind of like a book on tape almost ,that when you listen ,you can picture it complete like you are part of what is going on in a song. This sets me apart a lot and also I sing and rap and produce my own sound and I do not buy beats I make original work and words and also I kinda stand out because of my tattoos on my face and my lol.
Who have you been listening to lately?
I have been listening to artist like BOOTS COLLINS, YELLAWOLF, 2PAC, MAC DRE, a lot of different music on records that are foreign I can’t even pronounce. I like to listen to older material and make something modern day out of the smallest sample.
Tell us about your passions
Well I have children and they are really amazing kids,yes they have there crazy attitudes like there dad but they are the reason I get out of bed and the reason I try so hard to make my music career,because I want them to have a decent childhood and adult hood and not have to know the word struggle or have to do the things I did just for rent or food. I enjoy learning things reading books watching movies, I really am fascinated with space and how things are made, but back to what gets me out of bed,it’s the hustle and keeping on it and knowing the day by day I get closer to making this all happen , I know this because daily offers come in my inbox for things like acting jobs offered all the way to things like music career opps. Anything is possible when a man is focused on his kids and there well being
What else is happening next in your world?
I am working on filming music videos,as well as other projects like acting and doing commercials all the way down to everyday life, like I said I have a family and kids and I’m teaching them music due to there interest In doing the same career path one day as young producers and film makers. On the side we are trying to open businesses like bakery shop and restaurants. We as a family stay busy..this music is not our only revenue stream .
Thanks for an awesome interview, Damien!
