Hello Cipher! We’re excited to have you here at BuzzMusic! We love the vibe you’ve captured in “Make You Mine”. Are you able to delve deeper into the process behind the production and writing for this song? What was the inspiration? Absolutely! My wife is the inspiration for this song. When we first met she tried to put me in the friend zone. Obviously that worked out very well for her . I ended up winning her over and we started dating shortly after that. I found this beat on BeatStars and I started writing to it as soon as I heard it. Its from the heart and writing it came easily. I have a behind-the-scenes video for ‘Make You Mine’ that dives even deeper. You were born in California but raised in Texas. How do you think culture impacted your musical style? What inspired you to start making music?
I think culture impacts everything we do. Sometimes the impact is subtle and comes subconsciously without thinking about it. Sometimes the impact is very obvious. In my case I think some of my slower style music is influenced from my time in Texas. My family really inspired me to pursue music. We spent a lot of time around the campfire with two of my uncles playing guitar and the rest of us having a little too much fun. I learned a few instruments and then started recording hip-hop music at home with a friend when we got done playing football in the evenings. It helped keep us out of trouble. You’ve achieved so much in your career thus far. Do you have any ultimate goals or dreams you’re looking to achieve in the future? Are any of them currently in the works?
Oh, I have a ton of goals! I’m very goal-driven. Some of my goals include reaching 100k monthly listeners on Spotify, going on a world tour, getting my first platinum record, and winning a Grammy! Some of them I have no idea how we will accomplish them. A mentor of mine used to say the HOW is not as important as the WHY. Who has been the biggest influence on your sound? How have they helped you improve and progress as an artist?
Logic has been a big influence for me. I feel like he talks about topics that are considered taboo or takes positions or stances on topics that others might disagree with. He knows that not everyone sees things the same way as him, but he says them anyway. I like that. As an artist, I think one of the biggest ways it has helped me is to realize that not everyone is going to like my music, and there’s nothing wrong with that. What can we expect to see from you throughout 2020?
In 2020 you can expect more great music! To help me grow right now, I am releasing a new song every month. I plan to focus on growing my fan base, getting more exposure, and doing more shows. Let’s work!
