Five Questions With Antonio Ramsey
What becomes of a striking vocal talent that was born and bred for entertainment in South Florida, polished and primed in Atlanta and is currently being presented in the Los Angeles performance sect? Undoubtedly, the debut of a conceptual new genre, “Funk Trap” and a comprehensive new talent, Antonio Ramsey, who’s destined to dominate the charts and update what we now know to be the soulful sound of today’s man.
The raspy baritone and soon to be vocal paramount has opened shows and shared stages with fellow celebrated performers including Fantasia, Lyfe Jennings, Anthony Hamilton, Bobby Brown, Vivian Green, Bobby V, Chubb Rock and more. Currently, Ramsey is promoting his newest single All Night Long, a mannish, bass-ladened promise to unabashedly “give it all he’s got” all night long. The accompanying video, shot between a desolate California desert and a sex-charged hotel room is steadily tearing through the social-sphere drawing fans into the look, feel, sound and overall experience that is the 20-something year old crooner with boy-next-door charm.
Ramsey, who is heavily inspired by James Brown and Jodeci, has made cameo appearances on television in projects on MTV, BRAVO and NBC. 2017 will continue to usher in performance and portrayal opportunities for everything from new music to forthcoming movie roles. Walls, boundaries, and boxes don’t stand a chance if attempting to stop this show. It’s already in process and he’s got the feeling baby.
As you see yourself, who is Antonio Ramsey?
I would sum Antonio Ramsey up as rugged, soulful & ambitious. I’m pretty much the boy next door just a little rough around the edges lol.
Tell us about your current project?
I’m excited to finally be getting ready to release my debut EP. I have come to a place in my music where I can just say F it and actually make music that resonates with me inside and out. This project will embody everything “Funk Trap” means to me, from raw emotions to honest lyrics. I know that this project will have everyone moving, grooving & creating new memories!
What’s on your bucket list to accomplish as an entertainer?
I don’t even think a bucket is big enough for all the things I look to accomplish lol but of course, as I’m sure every artist does, I look forward to winning my first Grammy or Moon Man, but on another scope I also hope to accomplish being able to provide for my family because they have held me down through everything it took to get me here!
Will you be finishing out 2017 on the road or what’s on your horizon for 2018?
I most definitely will be finishing out 2017 on the road! The stage is where you get the complete Funk Trap Experience and I can’t wait to share that with the world. Ill also be dabbing into the television and film real also. All I can say is get ready because this train is rocking and rolling and we full steam ahead.
The Hype Magazine wants to know: What’s been your CRAZIEST “Where they do that at?! Or “WTF?!” moment thus far in your career?
So it’s always funny to answer a question like this because being from South Fl there’s not to many things that seem crazy to you lol. But if I had to pick a moment it would probably have to be being at a show and this lady walks up to me and ask if I would marry her daughter lol.
