It's great to have you here on BuzzMusic Ardy! Tell us a bit about your journey into the Rap/ Hip-hop music industry and any struggles you experienced along the way?
As a kid growing up in Toronto, I fell in love with hip hop instantly. My introduction to the music industry happened in 2011 when I discovered that I have talent in writing and performing music, so that gave me the confidence to keep going. Obviously there have been many struggles along the way, but at the end of the day, I continued to work on my craft and believe in myself.
How does "On My Way" represent you as a music artist? What did you envision in the makings of this track? ON MY WAY represent my journey, my belief to keep going, and striving for greatness, knowing that " No one can stop me".
Has your music been influenced by any music artist? Do you see it changing over the next few years? If yes, how so?
My city is a huge influence on my music. People like Drake, The Weeknd, Tory Lanez play a big role in pushing the culture forward. And most definitely artists like J.Cole, & Kendrick Lamar are huge influences from recent history on my music. Though Hip Hop artists are not the only people who have influenced me. Groups and artists such as Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Smokey Robinson, BB King, and many more have helped shaped my sound. At the end of the day, we take all of our influences and we make it into what we feel sounds dope. I do like to keep up with the time and release music that is accepted by the mainstream consumers, while still staying true to my soul and release music that has a positive message.
Enlighten us on the message being portrayed in "On My Way". Does it come from personal experiences?
ON MY WAY is an anthem for anybody who has goals in succeeding. I wrote ON MY WAY to not only share my belief with the listeners but to also inspire and motivate them to never stop believing in themselves. I too like many artists/people have doubted myself many times, and I have to continuously remind myself that I am on the right path and that I will never stop pursuing my dreams.
Thank you, Ardy for being here with us! Overall, such an amazing song that could definitely be a huge hit. With 2019 coming to an end, what can we expect from you in 2020?
To close out the year, I will release more videos for my singles off of my iMAGINE EP. And in 2020 I have more music in store which I am working on now, and I can not wait to share them with you!
