Welcome to BuzzMusic Ohreo! You give off a really confident aura through your music! Is this a skill you've developed over time or has it come naturally to you?
Thank you! Honestly, it came naturally to me. For me it has always been about expressing oneself and telling a story that everyone has heard in some form or can relate to in their own lives. I enjoy reaching out to people through my songs, and I want to be someone that represents everyone and understands them.
“Autograph” hit us to our very core with your bars! How have you developed your songwriting/rap ability overtime?
To be honest, since I wrote, produced, and rapped in the song myself, it took a lot of practice, trial and error, and long hours. It is important to ask yourself, “what do I want to say with this song?”. I sat with my lyrics and beat for a long time before finalizing anything. I did the same with my upcoming songs. It’s really about taking the time to ensure the song captures what you want to say, and that it means something to those listening.
Do you feel that your music is an accurate depiction of your life? Do you feel ultimately connected to your listeners through your music?
Yes. I feel as though my music is an embodiment, maybe hyperbolically so, of society as a whole and some of the things we all face. That’s where I feel I connect with my listeners. One of my favorite lines in the song is “after the trials and tribulations, I just don’t need these frustrations”, which I feel encapsulates the struggle we all face in society: we work very hard to get where we are, and often, without anyone’s support. I wanted to tell people who may not feel understood that I’m here, I feel your frustration, and that I support you.
Who has had the biggest influence on your life musically thus far? Can you describe the impact this particular individual has had in terms of your song “Autograph”?
My biggest inspiration has been my own life. Life is an uphill battle, and this song comes from what I see, what I hear, what I experience. “Autograph” essentially put a magnifying glass up to the superficialities of people that I have dealt with.
Thanks for taking the time to chat with us! What’s next for you artistically? Does your creativity manifest itself in other ways?
I’ve been working tirelessly on four new upcoming singles, more information to come out soon. I’m excited about these, because of the sheer effort I put into them. I know everyone will like it. I am also an actor, so you’ll see me in something along those lines real soon too.
