Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I started off as a producer, and I produced beats and mixed and mastered other people’s songs. I was messing around one day and found a beat that I really liked, and I decided to try out my voice at singing, and it sounded pretty good, so I posted it to SoundCloud. Next thing I know, it’s blowing up! It got over a million streams.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
Well, I was driving, and there was a car with a few teen girls and they were blasting my music. I look over and wave, and they all start screaming and taking photos. It was pretty funny and I realized that I was actually gaining traction.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
I would recommend to not let peer pressure dictate when to release music, take your time and don’t let it get in your head.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
Man, Honestly I did pretty much everything myself, I can’t really remember anyone who helped me get started.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I have gotten hundreds of messages saying that I have inspired people to face their difficulties and even a few people who were contemplating suicide were affected and ended up not taking their own lives.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
Life is hard. Don’t ever assume things are easy, but don’t let life get you down and discouraged.
