Welcome to BuzzMusic Lo’Ren Diggs! How did you come up with your stage name?
Ans: As a kid I use to work in the garden with my family. I was too small to handle the big shovel so they gave me the handheld shovel called the Diggs. Lo'ren is actually my first name. Most my friends/ fans call me Lo Diggs.
What is your new track “Slide Close” all about?
The story line is about a guy wishing he could dance well enough to impress the girl he likes. Its sort of a country line dance / Dance fever kinda song. Hence the lyrics in the chorus "COWBOY HUSTLE" it was also secretly a way to shout out a recently pasted music friend Nipsey Hustle.
Your songs have a very powerful lyrical presence. What’s your writing process like?
Melody and Concept is normally how my writing starts. The words come later but if I cant see ( visualize) it... I cant write it.
Do you have any shows, events, or tour dates you’d like to talk about?
I have a few from October to December. My fan base is so broad in age. Im even doing a middle school, a highschool, a post office appreciation banquet and Southern Los Angeles " TASTE OF SOUL".
What’s next for Lo’Ren Diggs?
I'ts hard to think about "Next" when I focused on the now. My Dad taught me that success isnt really success until you cant do it again and again. While most people are thinking about money & fame. Im thinking about making a big enough impact to effect the next generation. Today its a song, tomorrow it might be the anthem for courage. I stand for empowering people to "do more than live & have desire...THRIVE & INSPIRE". SO BE FEARLESS & SLIDE CLOSE.
