Featured artist: essence - A life long journey
Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist essence.
How did you decide to become an artist?
essence: I became an artist by truly finding myself . I found thru my life of gangs ,drugs , violence, Marine Corps and 2 failed marriages that I was always living for everyone one else and what they wanted me to be . I realized after being used and taken advantage of for so long that I wasn't being true to me and when I did – my true inner self is a artist . I make beats , rap , draw and tattoo . Being an artist is my whole existence. Even at 39
Be your self and don't apologize for it
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I have played live at parties and raves in the past dj/Mc . Currently I'm not doing any venues
Best punchline you ever wrote?
It's best to describe how I feel is real ,all you see is hate and racism be for real
What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?
Primarily making tracks to put vocals down to . Previously has been a lot of instrumental electronic and trap , and hip hop beats. I'm currently looking to get into a studio to lay some vocals down and make some solid tracks
Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I believe I would sign if the terms were right . It would be nice. to have financial backing for a project but I worry my creative input would suffer and possibly be controlled on what I should say etc
Any last words?
The Bay Area , Tracy , Stockton Cali and now I'm in Arizona and getting love in Phoenix
