Listen to “Bait” here.


Hey there, JASHAR! Welcome, and congratulations on releasing your single "Bait!" How do you feel about the response you received back from this track?

Thank you! Its always cool catching up with you guys. The response on Bait has been really dope! I've got more people now than ever supporting my music and really it's the best.

Hailing from Detriot, how do you feel the current music scene there is aiding in progressing your overall sound?

I like the sound this coming out of Detroit for the most part but I wouldn't say it's helping to progress my sound. My music is still very different from the Detroit scene.

As an artist who prides himself with mixing certain genre styles to create the one you currently possess, how would you describe the influence you received in order to put a huge emphasis on divergence from the "norm"?

Well I would say I just strive to sound different so I like to combine different genres that normally wouldn't sit together and create something that fits what I'm comfortable with and that's just with production. When it comes to vocals I like to put my spin on how I think certain flows should sound or how to make them sound better.

Where do you see the ultimate sound of your music extending to from here on out? Do you feel that you've found the exact sound you've been striving for, or do you believe you'll consistently work on the level of your sound?

I'm working on a pop project with another artist actually so I see that being half of the future of my sound and the other half I believe that it's gonna just keep evolving. I feel like I'm in a good place to where I can make great music now but I don't wanna keep creating the same thing over and over so I plan to keep switching up my style to keep em on they toes lol.
