Welcome to BuzzMusic, Kjuz Cosner, and congratulations on the release of your latest single for "Cold City Vision." Creating from a purely instrumental standpoint, how does that waver into the story you transmit to your audience?

I'm very proud of my single "Cold City Vision" I believe my music serves a purpose. A lot of my fanbase has most likely heard my most popular song, "Monkey Dreams," a tribute to my pet monkey named Sanjay, who passed away in 2017. My main goal with my music is to motivate others who are struggling and going through rough times. Creating music was my escape, and I want my audience to feel how energizing my music is and to never give up. Unfortunately, I felt lost when my best friend Sanjay passed away. I loved taking care of my pet monkey and living in the city in a penthouse. I felt like my vision of happiness and success faded after Sanjay passed away from old age and called my single "Cold City Vision" so I could express the emotions and love that I had for Sanjay.

Do you find that leaving your music up for interpretation is the best route for your artistry? At what point do you want to take complete control of the script and say what you feel?

I truly believe that the type of bests and melody I create within my songs reflects my emotions of hardship or if I'm uplifting and having a great day. As an artist, I've found huge success in making music for those who are in a dark spot. Part of me believes that letting the listener interpret my music and connect it to their life makes it more meaningful. I've found passion with my craft of music,

What central theme are you looking to get across in "Cold City Vision?"

That's it's okay to not be okay. When Sanjay passed away, I felt like I'd lost a piece of me. Part of me was gone. I felt very helpless. Whenever I was having a rough day, Sanjay would make me smile, he would always be prancing around, and I would even dance with him with some of his favorite music. The central theme is expressed through the sound of "Cold City Vision," probably one of my favorite songs I've produced, and with the feedback I've gotten on my Instagram page @Kjuz, I've felt so inspired by the positive messages and the love in the comment section.

Since your mass success with 'Monkey Dreams,' how has that helped to elevate your music career and personal growth?

With the success of my single "Monkey Dreams," I've seen a lot of love in public. Taking pictures and getting to know my audience is why I'm so happy with my personal growth and hearing that my music has helped others who in the past were battling depression. When I perform I feel, the love that Sanjay had for me. I'm very thankful that my music career has taken off, and being able to inspire others is what it's all about.

What's next for you?

I was going to be going on tour more often. With my music, I feel that I serve a purpose, and my goal is to reach as many people as I can who are dealing with heartbreak or having family issues or other problems in their life that are making them feel lost in this world.
