Hey Sidney! Welcome to BuzzMusic! Can you tell about your upbringing and how you got started making music?
I always loved music. I remember when I was a kid, impersonating Michael Jackson in front my TV. I started writing lyrics, making beats and founded a rap band when I was a teen. I’ve been producing music ever since. My style evolved a lot throughout the years, naturally blending different influences like Funk, Pop and R'n'b into my music.
What emotions did you channel when writing “My Time”?
"My Time" feels like a stadium anthem. I wrote this song to inspire and empower people, in a period of my life when I needed to fulfill these feelings.
What’s the meaning behind the lyrics “My Time”?
It’s a statement about taking a stand and stepping in your power. When you overcome obstacles and thrive to become the best version of yourself, you know what time it is: "Your time to shine".
What’s your writing process generally look like?
As I produce most of my music I often start with laying down some chords on the keyboard and from there I come with a singing melody. With the feeling of the chords, words and ideas start to appear, then I usually work on shaping sentences using subtleties and double meanings.
Can you describe your stage presence for someone who has never seen you perform? What sets you apart?
Definitely the words that the people use the most are: High Energy! It’s a big party, we are sometimes 9 on stage with the full band and brass section. I sing , I rap, I dance and I love to move the crowd. It's a communion , people sing along and jump around, its fantastic!
Keep up with Sidney B!
