Artist Interview: Midwest Chess
Tell us about yourself and your music
I grew up in Columbus, Ohio, I’ve lived all over the world, One of my favorite places to visit is New York, or even Paris, France. I enjoy writing music, i have been writing music since i was 12 years old. My music is what i call fun music, or music that describes how i’m feeling at the time. i enjoy spending times with the wife and kids when i’m not working on a music project.
Talk to us more about your latest release
My latest release is called I’m going to shine featuring Dame Dollarz, the song talks about shining, whatever you do in life just shine. of course i have other releases i’m working on my new one is called All i want is you, love song featuring AIREL.
What inspired you to write this release?
What inspired me to writing this release? i think it was my experience in traveling all around the globe, no matter what city or club i perform or step in or what beach i’m on, I’m going to shine. Like Lebron James on the b ball court.
Any plans to release a video?
