I am a new artist with a traditional approach to hip hop and I try to push the envelope for innovation. I am bold, forceful, and my music can be dark and hideous, or, in contrast, soft and hopefully beautiful for the listener. I've been a musician since childhood and I think it's time for me to step forward with what I got. I have hundreds of songs/beats and I'm ready to break out with my best.
Spotify tells me that 80% of my audience are males between the ages of 28-44. Before the CD, my top 2 singles are "Nice" and "Rowdy", and I crafted my new CD to be more like those two songs. Some improvements on the CD: I'm now using quicker tempos and more appropriate lengths of songs. Also, above all, I now "rap" with confidence, and I'm using my natural voice.
I have a big sound with big drums with serious bass lines, and I like a light motif piano and innovative (I think, hope) use of strings.
I am an Army Band veteran, Staff Sergeant, advanced out of the military school of music, and I show up and get it done with leadership. I've done hundreds of concerts since childhood, and I've performed solos out front with band accompaniment, I fear no crowd, I love it. And I do public speaking, motivational speaking, etc. I also conduct and can rehearse and prepare a professional concert band for performance.
For shows I plan on focusing on my main hip hop beats, not so much the alts. I do listen to criticism and suggestions, and I will never turn away guidance.
