Where are you from?

I’m from Belle Grade, Florida.

Describe your sound:

My sound is unique. I don’t believe in trying to sound like other artists.

Tell us about latest track:

My latest track is called Flexx. It’s a song for people to relate to. Anyone that has people doubting them can relate to that song.

Who inspires you?

I grew up listening to a lot of Lil Wayne’s music. Ofcourse, i listened to other music but 90 percent of the time it’s Wayne. I studied his music growing up. So i guess he’s my inspiration.

Where do you see your career in 5 years?

In 5 years i see myself making money from several different avenues. Music will just be the main platform.

Where can we check out your sounds:

I just released my first single on YouTube. It’s called Flexx. Go check it out. It will be on other platforms soon.

Tell the people something they need to know:

I hate liars and fake people. I’m a pretty chill person but once you do me wrong, our friendship is over. I also hate when people put on a fake show for social media. I like to joke around a lot to keep from thinking about my past. I’ve been doing music since i was like 11 years old. Just never took it seriously until now.

Where are you from? Hey, y’all. I’m a country music singer and songwriter who lives in New York. So, basically, I’m an city girl with a love of country music.

Describe your sound: My sound is a mix of traditional country with a modern alternative feel. I have a great appreciation for all types of music and what they have to offer the listener. I think that makes me a better songwriter because I get different perspectives and ideas for songs that are new and interesting. If I had to pick a name for my music, I would call it “eclectic country.”

What do you think about the state of popular music today? I think it’s thriving, but it’s very mainstream. I also think there is room for more artists who write other than the mainstream. There are lots of talented folks out there not being heard because the big machine really dictates what people hear. Case in point - my last song was played for people other than family and friends - who said that the melody was contagious and wouldn’t leave their heads. They loved it because it was a bar song and they could sing along to it. But - when music industry professionals heard it, they panned it. It was actually shocking. I think there is a formula to music that the music industry sticks to - and even though they say they are looking for the next big thing - they don’t deviate. If they did, more indie music would be out there being appreciated by the masses. Since I write from the heart and not by way of a formula, I have a tough time breaking into mainstream. So bottom line - I think that popular music is great, but I think that it doesn’t really take enough chances.

Tell us about your latest track: My latest track will be released in April. The song is called “Crossin’ The County Line (Over the Legal Limit)” and it’s a departure from the type of stuff I typically write. The track has an outlaw country vibe, complete with slide guitar and fiddle. It’s a little more raw than my usual, and it’s even different than the one other outlaw country track I recorded a while back. I love the song because the listener doesn’t know what “over the legal limit” is since it could be a variety of things. It’s a song about a rebel. It was loosely written about someone I know who gambles, smokes, drinks, does drugs and is always looking for the new big payout or thrill. This person struggles between being drawn to good or evil. He is looking for salvation, but can’t get out of his own way even though he knows the path he usually takes isn’t in his best interest. Addiction is horrible, and trying to figure out who you are and what you want to do with your life

is hard. I tried to write the song with an upbeat vibe and I tried not to make it too preachy so that more people could enjoy the song’s message. Thanks to the assistance of Mike Epstein at Dare Studios, the song is sounding incredible.

Who inspires you? First and foremost, my parents - they are amazing people and an example for all parents to follow. My daughter inspires me every day in every way. She is a precious angel sent from heaven. My husband, who is in a helping profession, and really cares about what he does. Any persons who take pride in their work, strives to make a positive difference or help people or animals are heros to me and inspire me. To that end, people who are kind, loyal and honest inspire me. My fur babies inspire me - they are loving and affectionate and good through and through. And, of course, musicians - I am so in awe of musicians who are masters at their craft - no matter what genre of music.

Where can we check out your sounds? My tracks are available on a variety of social media platforms for sale and to stream. Google Big City Cowgirl, for heaven’s sake!

Describe your sound:

Reggae dancehall fusion

Tell us about your latest track:

She Nah Leave Mi

Reggae/ dancehall artist Ibru is set to follow his debut single My Life with another hit single, “She Nah Leave Mi”. This is a song talking about relationships. Ibru exposes his imperfections when he tells a story about a girl who would not leave him alone. He had a relationship with the girl in the past, which came to an end, by a mutual agreement. When Ibru moves on, she has a change of heart and she decides to pursue him. This causes disruption in his current relationship. This girl reaches the level of stalker, when she is seen staking out, outside the residence of Ibru. Ibru is faithful to his lady, but is unable to shake this girl. In the end Ibru comes to the conclusion that this girl is crazy.

The music video takes the viewer through scenes of Ibru, having fun times with his lady. Their fun times are interrupted by annoying calls which bring Ibru’s lady to think there is infidelity in the relationship. The stalker girl somehow makes her way into Ibru’s house by deception, when Ibru is home alone. Ibru tries to get her to leave but is caught in the house by his lady which escalates the situation out of control. This video is about a girl stalking Ibru. This is the second song on his upcoming album, “Life Story”. Ibru says the album emphasizes the balance of life. He builds on the connection with his fans, when he talks about his relatable experiences. The song is produced by Dre Swade under the Kohanim Records Label.

Who inspires you?

My mother.

Where are you from?

-I’m from Queens, New York. Bayside/Flushing to be exact.

Describe your sound.

-My approach to emceeing uses all aspects of the arrangement down to the harmony in the sample if necessary. My subject matter is a more metaphysical style(think Wu-Tang, Mos Def and/or Cannibal OX) & a bit of NYC swagger (Nas, Jay & 50 Cent). Im grateful my sound keeps evolving and still I know I have more to learn!

Tell us about your latest track:

-I called the single to my latest EP(The Golden Lotus): _gladstone. It’s marks a time in my life where I hit rock bottom and rose to defeat my demons. I made the chorus in the memory of Prodigy from Mobb Deep with that signature Queens bounce. The verses are heavily riddled with introspection and reflection. I’m grateful people are gravitating to it!

Who inspires you?

My main inspiration would be my family & friends. The people I enjoy spending my time with show me what is possible/impossible through belief in oneself. I have friends whom own pretty dope brands and friends who work normal nine to fives. The hustle remains.

Where do you see your career in five years?

I see myself still making lit music(at least three more albums!), keeping my knowledge-base fresh, and the brand looking lovely. Shows and touring are essential. Hope to see y’all soon!

Where can we check out your sounds?

My soundcloud is where most of my music can found. You’ll see many freestyles and collaborations. Previous projects are available in all online stores & streaming platforms as well.

Tell us something about yourself that people need to know.

At the moment, I’m finishing a music degree at Full Sail. I engineer most of mine and others tracks. I welcome you to enjoy more of my music! Of course, shout to DJ Afar, Finer Things, Russell Bradley, 10K Records, Black Saturday Records, Fawkes, Mage9 & Crimson Godz.

Who inspires you?

For my upcoming album I have tried. to incorporate a wide range of sounds, while maintaining my own unique blend consistently throughout. My artist name "The Downer Disco" comes from my love of funk/disco/dance music as well as heavy metal/punk/rock. My three main influences sonically would be Kanye West, Gorillaz and Rage Against the Machine. I enjoy having a very gritty sound that you can still dance and move to. I think Rage especially has mastered that formula.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Making music. Quite simply. You know, it's nice to have recognition and a solid fanbase, so I hope for that obviously. However, even if I'm not famous, and only have a few listeners I'll be making tunes either way. I've been producing music for almost 9 years now with little to no plays. Making music is cathartic for me.

Tell us something about yourself that we need to know:

It's a cliche, but music saved my life. I always felt that if I am going to put something out into the world, musically, it needs to be good. I feel like I owe it to music to be better, to push myself.
