- What is your name and what city do you rep?
Michael Jones from Boston Ma
- What is unique about you and your music?
My music tends to speak what the mouth won't say
Life experiences growing up in a middle class single family household going through all the difficult challenges and being a kid you couldn't really do anything except watch the hurt in your moms eyes, I lost my mom to cancer at a young age I was 21 just starting to experience life yet I was forced to grow up because I have two younger sisters to look after, so going through all the things I went through at such a young age from relationships to just living the heartache the happiness where I've been and where I'm trying to go all gets put into my music and creates my life line story
- When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?
I was 8 years old music has always been my comfort zone if I was sad, angry or happy I turned to music, I remember just sitting around and singing in my own little world not knowing anyone was listening to me, everyone always told me " I had a voice that makes them want to listen" as I got older I fell in love with singing/music more and more so the thought of doing it as a living only felt right the first time I sung in front of people was at a church charity event the goal was to keep kids off the streets and I sung the climb by Miley Cyrus that song speaks volume and as I'm singing and I see the kids singing along and the reaction I got when I was done they wanted more it just felt like I helped them get through something that's when I knew I can and I got to do this not just for me but for the people who think they can't
- What type of music do you listen to?
I love anything I can vibe but my favorite would have to be country, hip hop and R&B
Who, to you, is the most undervalued music artist?
Honestly I feel like keke Wyatt is the most undervalued her range is amazing and I feel like she's under rated she's amazing
- How do you prepare for your performances?
I have to have at least two cups of tea with the works some halls and a dap of honey I wouldn't talk the whole day until show time my voice is my tool and it must be taken care of, the very moment before I hit that stage I say a prayer because regardless of you been doing it for years or a moment there's always nerves you got to be able to put all those nerves into your performance and keep in mind this is your brand your building and knock em dead
- What ignites your (song) writing flow?
Life, my music is based of life experiences and some aren't mines personally they may have been a friend of mines but I was there and I've seen the hurt I felt your hurt your pain and the thought of if I was to ever be in your shoes is where that song came from, sometimes I mix what they been through and what I went or am going through and build a story you got to be creative
- What do you do when you don't do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?
My second love is acting modeling and writing I'm always writing whether poetry or just writing out how my day was its very relaxing to me other than music
to me inspiration we all have a purpose we all go through things but if you could change the someone's life in a positive just one that's success to me life is such a blessing and a journey no matter what your going through you got to keep pushing
- What do you wish you were told when you first started rapping that you think would help anyone recently starting artists out?
I wish there was there was alil more in Dept as to all the work you have to put in and all the investments you have to input within your self to establish your brand it's definitely been a lot but I'm not going to stop until I get it
I will be performing life in Elmhurst New York part of the showcase tour June 22nd
- Where do we find you music / music project?
