What was your first introduction to music?
Music was a big part of my upbringing, I grew up in a music loving household.
Thriller by Michael Jackson is the first song that comes to mind when it comes to my introduction to music.
-How did you come to develop your current musical style, who were your inspirations?
By trying out a lot of music genres as I’m always under development ,like anyone should be.
My first inspirations were T-Pain, Chris Brown and Akon to name a few, but that list keeps changing with the times. I’m currently inspired by Anderson Paak, Jamiroquai, JMSN and many more!
-What came first for you, singing or producing?
Singing definitely. Producing came later on in 2020.
-When did you make your first song and what was that like?
2009! Not my best work haha
But no, for my beginning I think it was alright, I downloaded a beat from YouTube and wrote to it and recorded it at my house studio at the time, which was a conference call microphone that was covered with a bunch of socks for clarity lol.
-What’s your favorite song of yours so far and why?
I’m gonna say “Who Pulled Up.” The reason why I say that is because of how simple, yet complex it is when it comes to the performance.
-What do you think about the music/creative industry in Saudi and where do you see it going?
I think we have a lot of undiscovered talent. The potential is extremely high!
We’re still in the first stages but good things are coming god-willing!
-Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Hopefully still doing what I love to do but on a much bigger scale!
Maybe touring too.
-From the beginning of your journey until now, what is the most important things you've learned?
Consistency is key. I cannot iterate it enough!
Be on the look out for my upcoming single in the next couple of weeks!
