ShaVazz The Weirdo is an artist who is all about expanding his music. Since starting his career he has released an EP that landed a distribution deal under Virginia Is Kool under Universal Music Group, released numerous singles, and is back with a brand new release with Ryan O’Shaughnessy “Have You Seen Today?”. It's the perfect tune to put on and mellow out to at the end of a long day.
There is so much raw emotion here, and it’s full of positive and wholesome energy, that is all about making the world a better place. As we listened, we felt incredibly calm, like we are floating up in the sky being guided by ShaVazz The Weirdo and his performance here is just lovely to listen to. It has a sincere sound to it that makes you feel comfortable. Combined with a super jazzy smooth guitar performance and the ever so humble message about everyone coming together, “Have You Seen Today?” makes for the perfect late night-tune. This release has us completely in love, and we can’t recommend enough for everyone to check out this release, it has something in it that will make you feel whole inside.

Welcome to BuzzMusic ShaVazz! We are completely in awe with your latest release “Have You Seen Today?”! What was your inspiration behind the lyrics and how do they connect with you?
My inspiration behind the lyrics came from how exactly the world is today. It may not bother many people but I’m very sensitive to the way things are & other people's feelings. I did my best to get that feeling out hoping others would feel it & eventually make efforts to change the world for the better.
We are loving that it’s just guitar and voice, it perfectly suits your voice. Is that you and Ryan O’Shaughnessy? What was it like to collaborate together? How did you meet?
Me & Ryan O’Shaughnessy met after I made a post asking who was the best guitarist in Ohio. It was at least 14 people tagging his profile to my post saying get with this guy. After that we exchanged numbers & I told him my plans & we got it done. Collaborating with him was amazing because he’s very talented & was able to get the perfect sound out through the voice samples I sent to him via text.
It’s amazing to hear you got a distribution deal with Virginia Is Kool, that’s awesome! How did you land that opportunity? How did you feel when you found that out?
The deal with Virginia Is Kool came from a Dm on Instagram. The CEO of the company reached out & conversations went further through a few phone calls & I made the decision to sign the contract. I felt really great when I found out they were interested in me. Mostly happy that someone out there was appreciating my art & creativity.
You’ve definitely come a long way since you started, How do you think you have grown as an artist since your “The Weirdos Project” EP? Do you see yourself growing a certain way with future releases?
As an artist, I’ve grown to open my ear to more genres of music & give the supporters/fans what they want to hear at the very best I can. Future releases will be of any & every genre because I am comfortable & creative enough to make music worth listening to any genre.
