Songwriter first, Deenyo is a multi-talented artist making noise out of Baltimore. He writes poetry, stories, TV shows and whatever else peaks his interest. Using his real life experiences to inspire his songwriting, Deenyo writes anything from summer bangers to deep emotive poetry, he always keeps his listeners at the edge of their seat. Deenyo much anticipated EP “Reverse Archaeologist” is a lyrical and personal project set to be released August 9, 2019. Pulling from his notable influences like Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco, Deenyo is a force to be reckoned with. His older brother introduced rapping to him and he hasn't looked back since.
Pouring his heart and soul into his art, Deenyo is unstoppable. Improving with every track, Deenyo just dropped his newest banger “Switch”. A more fun and upbeat side of Deenyo, “Switch” still focuses on heavy subject matter such as loyalty. “Switch” is Deenyo’s strive to appeal to the demographic of listeners that love the DC flow and the hype uptempo vibes. “Switch” features Shabab that Deenyo claims is the secret weapon when he spazzes on the beat. A true summer vibe, “Switch” has had phenomenal success already and continues to grow. I highly recommend you check it out and keep a close eye on what Deenyo delivers next!
Listen to “Switch” here and read more below in our exclusive interview!
Can you tell us more about the lyrics and meaning behind the song?
-Switch is a unique song. My idea for the track was to use the concept of ‘switch’ in various ways. Shabab and I switch up our flows, switch up our topics, etc. Even the engineering in the song has various drops and edits. The lyrics are fun and we wanted to throw some lyrical gems in there so people can listen multiple times and find something they didn’t hear before.
What do you do to feed your passion for making music everyday?
- I draw inspiration through my experiences in life and the stories and poems I write. My friends and fans urge me to continue making content and that means a lot to me to know that they enjoy my creative content. I have a great support base!
What are some challenges you’ve faced as an up and coming artist? How do you overcome those challenges?
- Getting more Fans and streams have been slow and difficult at times. I’m working with more blogs as of recent and I feel like I’m figuring this music thing out a bit more. I am eager to work with more upcoming artists and promote my brand.
What’s your stage presence like? (for someone who has never seen you live before?)
- I have never performed in front of a live audience before just a little bit at parties but I am very charismatic. I find performing exhilarating and look forward to performing in the near future.
What can we expect from your upcoming EP “Reverse Archaeologist”?
-Reverse Archaeologist is an emotional journey about growth, coping with the challenges of time, love, and love lost. The EP contains 6 songs. I wanted to make a short project with quality tracks. I didn't want any of the songs to sound the same. I used 5 different producers. Expect a lot of story telling and lyrical content. Much different from ‘Switch’. This has great end of the summer vibes.
