Hey Koncept, welcome to BuzzMusic! We’re loving your self-assured tone within your track “Sheeesh”. How does “Sheeesh” standout from the rest of your album “Champagne Konny”?
Sheeesh is a song I had a lot of fun making. It’s just something about how the beat hits right from the beginning. It instantly made me say “Sheeesh”! On the album, and on all of my art, I create from feeling. So each song has it’s own feeling and/or mood, and “Sheeesh” was me feeling good, having a good time, and being happy and proud of where I was and am. And it fits real nicely in the middle of the album.
Speaking on your track “Sheeesh”, Koncept’s bars beam confidence and knowing exactly where you’re headed. How did you want your audience to react to the song, and what role did you want “Sheeesh” to play in the lives of your audience?
It’s about knowing how far you can go, and how proud you can be about, and in yourself.
I’ve come along way in my life, and I’m proud of all of it. The past as well as the present. I truly believe you can accomplish anything you really want as long as you put in the work and effort, and believe and envision it 100%. Feel where you were, feel where you are now, and feel where you’re going, Sheeesh!
Koncept’s music provides a very self-assured tone, giving listeners a ray of light to brighten up their days. How do you write from such a confident place? What helps maximize your songwriting process?
A positive mindset sees positive results. I’m always trying to learn, grow, and improve. That’s in all aspects of my life, from my art, to relationships, to business, etc. So my mood is always about seeing what’s in front of me, what I’m/we’re dealing with, and how to fix it, enhance it, grow it, and then setting the next goals and steps and achieving them.
We’ve noticed that Koncept has endured many notable musical experiences over time. Could you speak on what your most valuable experience was, and what lessons it taught you?
I think one of my most notable experiences for me was my whole experience in Asia.
For those that don’t know, I spent over a year in Asia touring, which originally was only supposed to be a two-week tour. It taught me a lot. As a person and how I move, I’m very strategic and I plan things to go and follow a certain way. I learned more than ever in that situation that sometimes your plan won’t always go exactly how you “plan” it, and that’s okay. In fact, my advice would be to be open to those changes in paths and direction. They can lead to even greater things that you couldn’t have imagined prior. For those that don’t know, I partnered with Sony Music Asia, who I met at my second show of the tour in Seoul, S. Korea, and released an album titled “14 Hours Ahead” and toured all around Asia for a year and a half. I worked with a lot of different artists like Twopee from Thailand, Paloalto and Hi-Lite Records from Korea, VMC from Korea, and many more. Performed at Seoul Olympic Stadium opening for Wiz Khalifa, was cast in Korean commercials. If I wasn’t open to staying in a foreign country that I was unfamiliar with, I wouldn’t have been fortunate to be blessed with so much opportunity.
What can we expect to see next from you?
I’m about to release a few new videos from my album “Champagne Konny” which I’m really excited about. And then this summer I’m releasing my next album. I’ve been recording a lot of new music during this quarantine so I have a lot coming! I can’t wait to share it with all my fans and supporters!
