He just released a new single, “Super Power”, which is a hip hop track drawing influence from rock and pop. Listen now and read our exclusive interview below!
What makes ‘Super Power’ different from your past work?
I’ve been known over the course of my career to dabble in various genres of music, and on this one, I feel like I found the sweet spot. I think on this one I was able to step outside the box but not so far it would scare away a wider audience.
Can you describe the concept behind the track?
The new age teachings and traditional Native American teachings I grew up on have been instilled in me. I think we really all have access to some god-given superpower and it’s sad some never find it. I want people to believe in themselves and realize we are made in Creator’s image so it’s important we have tremendous self-esteem.
How would you describe your artistic evolution throughout your career?
I grew up a knucklehead trying to make a name for myself in the streets and I succeeded. My first dance in music-making was hip hop, and I was introduced to the band “The Strokes” by my bro Lancelot Knight, and it opened ears to new sounds, rhythms, and melodies. After that, I started really looking into the old classic stuff and seeing what made them legendary and using that as a source of inspiration.
What’s been the biggest change in your life over the past year?
In terms of music, I have really grown to love the business side of it. Prior to this past year, I was happy letting things come to me and hoping for the best. But now I am learning so much and it’s exciting to find creative ways to market and sell the creations we put so much into.
What song by another artist do you wish you had written?
The only one that comes to mind is “I wanna be a billionaire” by Bruno Mars. That is such a universal subject that literally everyone on earth can relate to, Haha when I heard it I was like F—k how come I never thought of that.
And finally, where can readers keep up with what you are doing?
Social media is where it’s at. These days everyone has their own tv station on YouTube, their own radio station in Spotify and their own magazine on Instagram. Plus you have Twitter and Facebook. It’s really a great time to be an artist cuz we don’t need much to be self-sufficient. Being a musician has never been so easy.Tweet
