The Last Outlaw
Very Professional in what I say or do when it comes to music and being heard.
What Music activities are you involved in? Recording artist, songwriter, composer, producer, engineer?
Song writer, Artist, Beat Maker, Producer, pretty much everything from beginning to end.
What aspect of what you do musically, do you find challenging?
I find keeping it real and staying true to what I’ve lived through, or been witness to, is one of the hardest things to do as an artist. The real life subject matter and things I speak about are all that comes from me through living and experience. I speak my truth and what I feel or want to say, not what I think others want to hear necessarily. A lot of music nowadays sound almost the same and mostly glamorizes things us real people will never be able to relate to. The fancy cars, big houses, the jewelry, etc… all that sounds great and stuff but I just can’t relate personally as an everyday person and artist. Ill also never speak on what I don’t have or can’t get.
How would you describe your music?
Real Life Music. Raw emotion and feeling in every word spoken, out of life lessons and mistakes, the good times and bad. Living and still learning.
How much of what goes into your music is life experience?
How would you describe your sound?
Id describe it as like no other.A little Southern, and a little Mid-West combined, I guess. I really gained influence on what I speak through watching, listening, and taking in my environment. I couldn’t compare it to another artists sound or style.
How involved are you in making music, writing, performing, recording, mixing, etc?
From beginning to end. I like what I like and know how I like it, so I try to stay in every Part of the process.
What are your goals and aspirations as a musician?
Just to make great music that other real people could possibly relate to.
What is another genre of music, different from the one you play, that you like?
Alternative. I for real don’t listen to my genre much for the simple fact that I just don’t feel most of it. Its all the same stuff just repeated differently in other styles an form.
As a musician do you ever think you’ll quit learning your art?
Never. As long as I’m alive and witness to life, I’ll always have something to speak about.
Do your family and friends support you pursuing your passion for music?
Yeah, everyone, friends and family have been supportive in one way or another.
Does music play an important role in society? If so why?
I think it does because it having the power to be heard and can influence it’s listeners, whether positively or through negativity. Its heard by the masses.
What would you tell young musicians that may help inspire them to develop their talent?
To just stay true to themselves and speak on things from the heart, mind, and soul. Don’t try to imitate or gain unintentional or subconsciously be influence from radio or other artists. Let them do them, and you do you. There’s already them doing it, copying styles, or saying what’s known to sell and losing the real art form behind having the power to say something with true meaning and it be heard and felt by the listener, in hopes they might can relate to and understand with you.
What makes music special for you?
Its a way to express, and vent, and get out what I’m really feeling. And have fun doing it so freely.
Did you ever take music lessons?
Never took lessons but I’ve learned through experimentation, and trying to learn the process my own way over time.
Do you ever get burnt out working on music?
I’ve got so much to say and speak on and get out, that I doubt I’ll ever get burnt out, lol.
How important is it to fit music into your daily life?
Most important. Music is made to make people feel certain ways, and if someone can take something out of what say and it makes them feel Better or different or not alone, then my goals been accomplished.
Do you ever use mobile technology to help you record your ideas?
I might write in my phone at times if something comes to mind while I’m just out and about on a daily. But not to record verbally as a memo.
My final thoughts to inspire young musicians:
Stay true and support what’s real. Not all I speak on is positive, but it’s true and not to glorify the bad in life, but be aware and possibly gain knowledge from my past experiences… Good or Bad.
