Tell us about yourself and your music
I have always loved singing and performing in front of large audiences. I have also been self-promoting myself as a celebrity for several years now. My debut album was a 10 track A Cappella Album called “Ultimate Celebrity Blackout” which was released on August 17, 2018. I just recently released a new Pop Single called “I’m A Celebrity” that single was released August 07, of this year. The “I’m A Celebrity single” also has “Ultimate Celebrity Blackout” in the lyrics to let fans know about my “Ultimate Celebrity Blackout” debut album.
Talk to us more about your latest release
The I’m A Celebrity Pop Single is nice and catchy and promotes the fact that I’m A Celebrity. The song even has drums to make sure that it is very catchy and goes viral. There is also a Music Video on YouTube which has many red carpets and steps & repeats backdrops.
What inspired you to write this release?
I love large audiences, the media, and the paparazzi so I wanted to write a pop song that wrote in stone what I am so I decided to write “I’m A Celebrity”. I also wanted to write a song that would go super-viral and not get blacked out of the media like my debut album “Ultimate Celebrity Blackout” did. “I’m A Celebrity” was actually my easiest song to write because it is about me and how I love performing in public.
Describe the writing and recording process
I wrote the lyrics and song ahead of recording at Bay Area Recording where Tim Abbott of Kingdom Voice Productions recorded me. Tim Abbott then created the background track, mixed, and mastered the pop single.
Any plans to release a video?
Any plans to hit the road?
I don’t know if you can have concerts during the corona-virus but I will look into booking some shows in the future if I can find some venues.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
I love performing, but personal branding is the hardest part. Luckily I am also talented at branding and self-promotion. I have branded myself a Famous Celebrity and a Singer-songwriter. The source for most of my branding is my website http://www.josephwcarrillo.com/ . I also have custom merchandise if you look at the store section of my website. All of my Albums are Celebrity themed such as my Debut Album “Ultimate Celebrity Blackout” and my new Pop Single “I’m A Celebrity”. Some of my favorite words to use in my marketing and personal-branding are Celebrity, A-lister, Famous, A-list, Celeb, Meme, Famous Singer, viral, etc.
Who have you been listening to lately?
I listen to Joseph Carrillo’s “I’m A Celebrity” but I also like to listen to Rebecca Black’s Friday song because I like pop songs that go viral. I also listen to other songs but Friday and I’m A Celebrity are my two Favorites.
Who are your biggest influences?
My exceptional singing and acting talent influence me. I am also influenced by my fans, studios I record at, and any mass media attention I receive.
Tell us about your passions
Singing, Acting, Public Speaking, endorsing products, and any other public performance.
What else is happening next in your world?
I will keep singing, performing, and self-promoting my celebrity status forever.
