Hey David! Welcome to BuzzMusic! What age did you start recording your music? Did anyone give you a push to begin doing that?
I have been recording music since I was a kid. I was always fascinated with creating chords. My grandmother was an incredible piano player who sang as well. I always grew up watching her play in church.
Tell us more about “Girlfriend”! What’s your favorite part of the track?
Well, GIRLFRIEND, is about the time I met my current girlfriend. Lol. Literally inspired the song. All of my music I wrote from true facts about my life and where am at in the moment. My fav part is the throw back *NSYNC vibe I put in the prehook.
What was your childhood/ upbringing into music like?
My parents use to put headphones on my mothers belly when she was pregnant and would play various types of music depending on the mood of the day. They say it contributes a lot. I always grew up dancing in the corner and singing. I feel like a combination of everything just led to the inevitable.
How does your sound differ and compare to some of your earlier releases?
I def would say the my current sound reflects more of my personality with who I am compared to last music. I think it’s important for every artist to know who they are and what they want to say to the world. We’re all unique... so just the world you.
What can your fans expect from “Good Guy Off Track”?
Um... well... haha. I’m trying something new. Instead of releasing it as one package, I’m releasing it through singles. It still tells the story I wanted to portray, but so much has happened with my life in a short amount of time that I thought it best this way.
