How did your music career start?
I’ve always loved singing since I was still a young kid. I never took seriously until I left matric. I was asked to help out a friend in studio making a demo. He knew I had a natural talent but wanted to see me exploit it. Ever since my first day in studio I knew it was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
Please discuss your style of music – what makes you unique?
I wouldn’t want to ever put myself in a box but I’d say my style of music could be labeled as Soulful-Pop. I think I am the gap between a plethora of genres. I have a very old school method of writing music, soulful music at that but I try to adapt it to new contemporary sounds and music. I don’t want to limit myself. As music changes, I try change with it but keeping my soul element with it. I have a unique voice that is quite emotional too.
I also Freestyle sing, that’s how I come up with a lot of my songs too. It’s always important to write the lyrics and honest lyrics but I do get a lot of my ideas from playing around with melodies with producers.
Who are influences or inspirations to your music style?
My favourite artist since I can remember was always John Legend. I started following him way before he was famous, I’d always see pages on the internet and I just fell in love with his style of music and what he represented. His honesty, his musicality and his voice have always pushed me to better myself. Other major influences are ‘Majid Jordan’, ‘The Weeknd’ and other artists like ‘6lack’, ‘Ed Sheeran’, ‘James Vincent McMorrow’, ‘Black Coffee’ and ‘John Carol Bukenya’.
