Thank you for sharing your music with us Cornered Badger! In what ways have your background and upbringing impacted your artistry?
When I was younger I took a couple of piano lessons so that really helped me with my tempo and finding rhythm. The local scene, while still being on the come up, pushes me to keep grinding because I can’t let any of them outshine me haha. My friends offer some constructive criticism when I show them my songs so that helps too. At the end of the day, it’s a team thing.
How would you describe your songwriting approach to us? What are some challenges you face in writing a song?
These days I’m trying to vibe to the beats more than cram syllables in. The wordy flow is more normal for me when I write so sometimes I have to take a step back and think, “Would people actually like this?” And more importantly, “Would I actually listen to this?” I’ve been trying to simplify my music and just make it unique.
Let’s talk about your record “Overseas”, what was the major theme surrounding this song?
I was just feeling melancholy that day so I tried to translate that into a song. When I heard the beat, I started vibing to it. Then I showed it to Young Zaire and he loved it. All of our homies loved it too. They kept bugging me to release it so I did.
What inspired you to write “Overseas”?
My girl from overseas… These calls are getting expensive… She’s still figuring out how to FaceTime…
What’s next for you Cornered Badger?
More music and visuals for sure. Me, Grandpa Beats and Young Zaire always cooking up.
