Hey JMB Music! Congrats on the release of your new single “Am I Wrong?”! What does this song represent for you?
Thank you, I really appreciate it! To me, this song represents growth. It's the first song I have released that I also co-produced, (shoutout to Spaceman) and getting into the production side of creating was one of my goals for 2019. This record is also special because I didn't lock in on a direction for the song. I created what felt good in the moment and didn't try to fit into a specific genre or category.
Where is the best setting to listen to “Am I Wrong?”, and what do you hope people take away from it?
That's a good question. It's an upbeat song with fun melodies and a catchy hook, so I think the best settings would be at a pregame before a party or event, or in the car on your way somewhere. Although it is a fun song, I hope people really tune in to the lyrics as well. Am I Wrong really embodies what the dating or "talking" scene is like nowadays. In the beginning, a lot of people claim they aren't looking for something too serious but somewhere down the line emotions get involved and it becomes hard to decipher their feelings and what to do.
If you had to pick just one song in your collection to adequately describe your sound, which song would you choose and why?
If I had to pick just one song it would be “Andele” off of my last EP, Late to the Party. "Andele" really showcases how I create and execute melodies and different cadences. Even though it's an up tempo song, the chorus still has an R&B vibe to it. So all in all, I guess you can say my sound is versatile, and Andele definitely shows that.
What’s the concept of the music video for “Am I Wrong”?
For the video we wanted to paint the picture of a first date or first interaction type of scenario. While on the date they are getting to know each other and they're vibing. At the same time, their intentions and each person's views on relationships or dating are also being exchanged. We definitely wanted to keep the visuals as fun and as colorful as the song is, so we thought the Atlanta Beltline was the perfect location because of all the artwork, eating spots, and good weather. Shoutout to my good brother Brook Waven on directing, shooting, and editing the video!
Do you have any upcoming events or shows you’d like to talk about? What’s next for you through the end of 2019?
I had a few saxophone gigs this summer, that were really cool. I am still working on the schedule as of right now, but I am planning to throw a soundstage pretty soon. It will feature me and some artist that I’m cool with, so I will keep you all updated on that. I also have another single lined up for the fall to get everyone back in their feelings lol. In addition to that, I will be working on writing some songs for artist and producing.
