ALTERNATIVE ROCK ARTIST "TERATON" TALKS NEW SINGLE "HULLABALLOO" PLUS MUCH MORE!

 

Alternative Rock Artist Teraton Immerses Listeners in a Sonic Experience with New Single, ‘Hullaballoo’

 Los Angeles-based, up-and-coming industrial/alt rock artist, Teraton, recently dropped his new single, “Hullaballoo.” The single “is kind of chaotic and definitely noisy—intentionally. It’s supposed to be a kind of sonic experience.”

 

Defying genres and structures, the artist strives to create music that resonates with discerning listeners. “It’s always difficult and stressful releasing your first single,” shares the artist of this track. “It was also very exciting hearing all of the positive feedback.” Mostly, Teraton wants listeners to find belonging in his music—no matter what the genre.

 

At the beginning, Teraton began writing as a method for expressing both personal and social ideas, reflected in both the lyrics and the music. Now, he brings these ideas to life through an unforgettable auditory experience.

 

“In this track in particular, the vocals have a new-wave feel on top of what is a very industrial rock kind of instrumentation which gives the song a unique feel both stylistically and in regards to genre,” shares Teraton of his latest single. “Lyrically, it’s erratic, chaotic. It’s about cultural brainwashing. I wanted to describe that feeling of wanting to remain asleep, instead of waking up to the reality that we very rarely ever hear the truth. Now, more that ever, it’s something you have to dig for, and most Americans are too lazy and apathetic to dig.”

 

When it comes to writing music, Teraton is no stranger to hard work. This single in particular has 215 tracks! “I think the process is first finding the hook, then building all the right electronic sounds and samples that are going to work well together,” explains Teraton. “The process is time consuming, it’s layer by layer. The mixing took months, playing with different tracks to figure out how they can come and go and be heard.”

 

“The full album I’m going to release is industrial rock but certainly alternative rock and maybe electro or tech industrial since most of the instruments are synthesized,” shares the artist of the album he hopes to release later this year. The album will also feature a longer version of “Hullaballoo.”

 

For now, Teraton is hyper-focused on finishing his album—but that doesn’t mean he’s not thinking about the next big thing. “I definitely want to shift into doing live shows once I have enough material released” shares the artist. “I would like to take a more live band approach, rather than one guy on stage pressing buttons and turning knobs like a DJ. A guitarist, bassist, and drummer would be ideal. My music needs that kinetic energy.” At the end of the day, it’s all about the music. “I think of most of my songs are going to be cerebral; I think that’s a valuable thing. Music should be able to make people think and not just feel—it’s a great thing to do both.”

SINGER- SONGWRITER CLAIRE LEFTON TALKS NEW EP "RENAISSANCE WOMAN" PLUS MORE!

 

Claire Lefton expresses joys, tribulations of common folk in EP ‘Renaissance Woman’


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!


Claire Lefton expresses joys, tribulations of common folk in EP ‘Renaissance Woman’

By John Hacker


CINCINNATI, Ohio — With lyrics born of real experiences and a powerful voice inspired by the freedom and grace of 1990s female rock stars, Cincinnati-based singer-songwriter Claire Lefton is sending her second EP, “Renaissance Woman” out to the world on Oct. 7.

This five-track EP reflects the challenged feelings of an entire generation of young people who have endured unprecedented isolation for parts of the past two years of COVID-19 and the thoughts of someone who spent her isolation in sometimes tortured self-reflection and deep thought.

Lefton said she’s coping with her isolation by singing songs that express the emotions that many are feeling as we come out of this period of isolation into a future that has changed forever.

The five songs on the EP include the track that gave the EP its name, “Renaissance Woman,” and four others: “Cosmic Wind,” “The Library,” “In the Sun,” and “Different Tracks, Different Trains.”
I’ve had quite a year writing all of these songs over a time where there was a lot of self-reflection because I’ve been pretty isolated because of things like COVID,” Lefton said. “So it's been a lot of how I process things and what I’m thinking about.

A song like Renaissance Woman is how I’ve been very frustrated when you have to look at your body every day and judge it and you realize that body standards that have been imposed upon women. Women's bodies have been treated like a fashion statement. What is the ideal body now might not be the ideal body in like five to 10 years thanks to plastic surgery industry trying to profit on women’s insecurities and self-hatred.”

While some of the songs are introspective, other songs, like “The Library,” are Lefton’s frustration with attitudes of today.

I wrote ‘The Library,’ as a sort of multi-perspective song about my frustrations with the rise in anti-intellectualism in America and the world at large,” she said. “It’s different people talking about the same event — basically this town burning down a library because they were told the people who wrote the books were heathens who didn’t know what they were actually talking about. I feel like it’s sort of where we’re at in a lot of ways. I wrote that one in a burst of frustration over several political things happening at once and I thought that was a good way to get it out of my system.”

In the Sun,” was written after Lefton suffered a full-body sunburn during a day outside and came to the conclusion that Summer being the best of seasons was one of many lies people tell themselves.

I have the very strong opinion that summer time is not actually the best season and we’ve been trained to like it the most as kids because that’s when summer break is,” Lefton said. “It’s sarcastic because I’m like oh, isn't it awesome when it’s like a thousand degrees and you go be out in the ocean and then you get salt in your eyes. I talk about how we tell ourselves it’s all fine when our boss screams at us at work about nothing because this is how it is and I need this job and things like that. It’s about the lies we regularly tell ourselves.”

The songs ‘Different Tracks, Different Trains,” and “Cosmic Winds” are different takes on feelings and relationships and dealing with people and their complications.

Lefton said the entire album is a story of self-reflection.

It’s the thoughts I've been ruminating on for the last year or year and a half, especially when I’m alone and I spend a lot of time with these thoughts,” Lefton said. “It’s what comes to mind, what are the things that I think about the most and what are the things I feel compelled to express in a way? I really admired how a lot of the rocker women of the 90s were like free to express their thoughts and emotions in a way that was a little more messy than what came before and a lot afterward. This album is in that vein.”

Lefton said the colorful cover art for her EP is an original artwork created by her talented cousin, Zoe Nourie.

TMIKE STOPS BY AND TALKS ABOUT HIS NEW SINGLE "ALREADY MADE IT" PLUS MORE!

TMike, with a new single, ready to take his own mix of musical artistry out to the world


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

By Kurt Beyers


He has made music that blends rap with guitar and with piano and with other instruments, because that is what music is for Fort Myers, Florida, artist TMike – a blend of instruments, genres, life, mood and moment.


For instance, his newest single, “Already Made It,” blends celebration and manifesto.


The celebrating is a party-beat rap about how far he has already come, and the manifesto is that the celebration is not going to replace the hard work of getting where he wants to go.


The first two lines of the first verse starts the celebration: “I done made the most I ever made / When I was struggling,” and a few lines later comes the determination: “Now I can’t stop for nothing / Too much money I can’t let it go.”


Asked what’s next, he said, “Really, just continuing to push, continuing to grind. The sky is the limit, and there's no time like now. So I'm gonna do as much as I can and see how far I can go.”


He started making music as a young child but didn’t take it seriously until about 2017. He has released four singles and two albums this year alone, but he has a lot more out and even more ready to go.


“Honestly,” he said, “I have a lot of unreleased music. I have enough music right now to release one song a week for the next three years.”


So, is that his plan?


“Depends on what happens, man. I'm trying to stay relevant. I'm trying to stay ready. I don't want to be caught with my pants down.”


Growing up, he listened to hip hop, R&B and gospel. Gospel is still a big part of him. “I grew up in the church,” he said. “I’m a God fearing man. I put God first. Without God, I’m nothing. That’s just the truth on my side.”


In college, he was introduced to a lot of different music, country, rock, “a lot of different types.” His music now he calls a “mashup” of everything he has been exposed to, the mainstream music of all kinds around him, how he feels when he goes in to the booth, what’s happening around him, all of it.


That’s how “Already Made It” came about. He was in the studio and, with his engineer and producer, was “going over ideas.” His engineer, Hero, had created a beat, “and I just felt the party vibe on it,” said TMike.


“And the way I was feeling, you know, I was looking back on my life and thinking about the things I overcame, and the things I went through to get to where I am already. And I felt like ‘Damn. I'm not even really started, I'm not even done yet, and I feel like I made it.’ I'm doing a lot of things I never would have thought I'd be able to do, and I'm accomplishing what I never would have expected me to accomplish in so short time.”


He doesn’t call himself a rapper. He is an artist who sings and is creative with sounds and feelings. When he goes into the booth, he said, “I let the mood guide me. I go with whatever happens in that moment, or whatever may going through in the studio that day.”


A lot of mixing goes on in his music. “Start of the Summer,” a single from 2019, features a machine-gun fast, explicit rap on top of a soft guitar melody. Another, “Wavy,” also features a hard-core rap, but this one is mixed with a wandering, speculative kind of melody played on a soft, flute-like instrument.


Asked about that one, and what that instrument was, he laughed. “I don't even know that instrument, but I fell in love with the sound and I told Hero he had to put it in,” he said.


And another single from earlier this year, “JPay,” features piano. That one was inspired by Pink Floyd’s album Dark Side of the Moon.


“Backside of the Moon was like a classic album and, as an artist, you got to listen to things like that, just because it's music and it's, you know, classified as legendary.”


TMike, his engineer and producer create his beats together.


“I try my best to like make my lyrics a dance with the instrumental. I want everything to be intertwined, you know, seamlessly, so when you listen to it you really enjoy it. I was a fan before I started making music, so I try to put what I love from music into mine.”

FOLK & BLUES RECORDING ARTIST ROYCE DEZORZI STOPS BY AND TALKS ABOUT HIS NEW RECORD "DENVER" AND MUCH MORE!

Royce DeZorzi’s Album Denver Pays Homage to His Adoptive State

By Gabby Cast


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

Step into the mind of an Americana artist, and what you’ll see is the horizon of the West coast and the illustrious Mountain state terrains that evoke chords balancing between bluegrass and folk.

Royce DeZorzi’s music paints an image of those same sonic landscapes.  On his upcoming album, Denver, he nods to the mountain city where he shaped his sound while also paying homage in parting, as he soon relocates to Nashville, TN.

“I’ve ended up on the outside looking in from a lot of past relationships, friendships, and musical partnerships. During recording, I found myself in the right space to sit down and reflect on some things I’ve learned and experienced here,” says DeZorzi, “and, just as importantly, say thank you and goodbye.”

DeZorzi’s journey started near Annapolis, MD, where he grew up in a military family.  As a child, the family moved to Augusta, GA.  After the passing of his brother Alex, a passionate guitarist, he inherited the instrument, which sat in a closet for a year before he tried to sell it to a friend.  Instead of purchasing the guitar, the friend showed DeZorzi how to play, and he was hooked.

Shortly thereafter, DeZorzi traveled to Western Colorado, spending the next several years working on farms and playing solo in forgotten corners of the American Southwest.


After relocating to Denver in 2017, acoustic compositions took a back seat to electronic-leaning group improvisations, resulting in the New Freedom Movement LP and VISIONS (2020).  These experimental offerings highlight DeZorzi’s sensibilities as a band leader and electric guitarist.  Now, as a solo artist, he’s going back to the basics and exploring the vulnerabilities of acoustic guitar.

“I guess that was where I had started on the guitar and couldn’t escape it. I fell in love with playing solo, where you get the space to compose orchestrally and improvise freely,” explains DeZorzi. “But the fingerpicking thing always felt a little old-timey to me, and for a few years I put the acoustic down.”

The album’s title track explores traditional folk and blues idioms through DeZorzi’s unique style, and his emotive playing lets listeners interpret its meaning.  No vocals — simply the echoing catharsis of DeZorzi’s solitude.  Denver is a snapshot of the city he’s called home, weaving threads of his own experience into the tapestry of the plains, mountains, and sunsets that dance across the Front Range.

“There’s nowhere to hide in this kind of music; it’s very stripped down,” says DeZorzi, “and for me, it always evokes the same relaxing space.”

The voyage to Nashville will be Royce DeZorzi’s next story.  He is planning a US tour in support of the album, which is set to be released on September 1st.  

Denver is set to be released on September 1st.  To stay up to date on DeZorzi’s upcoming tour and other releases, be sure to check out the links below.

DR KEE STOPS BY AND TALKS ABOUT HIS NEW SINGLE "SPARKLE LIKE 24K GOLD" AND MUCH MORE!

Dr. Kee’s “Sparkle Like 24K Gold” seeks a universal language of love

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

By: Nadia Sobehart

Pastor and musician, Dr. Jefferey P Kee, shares pure emotion in his newest single, “Sparkle Like 24k Gold.” His latest single is a celebration of love and happiness. The song reflects on what it truly means to be in love and to appreciate and value your relationship. 

Ideal for weddings, the single speaks to people who are serious about love. Motivated by his cousin, Dr. Jefferey P Kee wrote the song originally for his wedding. The couple fell in love with the song as they made a commitment to everlasting love. As more people within his inner circle began to hear the song, Dr. Jefferey P Kee realized it needed to be shared. After all, the world loves to love.

“It transcends a particular title,” says Dr. Jefferey P Kee of “Sparkle Like 24k Gold.” “Everyone can understand the thread of love, no matter who you are, in or out of church. The song captivated emotions and immerses you. It takes you to a place of imagination of something you can love and appreciate.”

A senior pastor of New Faith Baptist Church, Dr. Jefferey P Kee is moved by people and religion. The self-proclaimed “Pastor for the Master” is more than a man of faith—he’s a talented musician, producer, and bass guitarist, stemming from a family lineage of gifted musicians. The Prince of Gospel Music, John P Kee, is his cousin. Kandy Johnson Isley, wife of music legend Ron Isley, is his cousin as well. 

When Dr. Jefferey P Kee is writing music, he hears something in his spirit. “I hear the music first,” he explains. “The sound is a gift inside of me. The symphony from my inward journey speaks to my inner core and then must be delivered, that resonates in a song.” After the song is conceptualized in Dr. Jefferey P Kee’s inner mind, he heads to the studio to record. He continues to add pieces—first, the singers, then the harmonies. “I let it speak to me instead of me speaking to it. I don’t try to impose a particular song—it just resonates within.”

This year, Dr. Jefferey P Kee is looking forward to sharing more music with his listeners. “Sparkle Like 24k Gold” is one single off his newest project. “I wanted to transcend the label of being a gospel preacher. This is music at its best. Whatever genre you really love doesn’t matter— it captivates every audience.”

HIP HOP RECORDING ARTIST "KeyLo_G" STOPS BY AND TALKS ABOUT HIS NEW SINGLE "CHRISTMAS" AND MORE!

KeyLo_G Drops Fresh Hip Hop Sound with “Christmas”

By: Nadia Sobehart


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

Hip-hop artist Keshawntay—otherwise known as KeyLo_G— weaves rhymes and storytelling to create a powerful sound of his own. Versatile and style full, his sound blends classic hip hop beats with current life experiences to create a handful of projects including his latest single, “Christmas.” 


The Las Vegas-bred rapper, who resides in San Antonio, says this about his music: “It’s different—it’s a whole new vibe. I put a lot of different sounds into my own style. That’s the way I am.” When it comes to creating music, KeyLo_G mostly is invested in the vibe—“it’s a vibe, I create vibe music.” He wants listeners to be able to escape into sound when they listen to his music.


A music lover through and through, KeyLo_G isn’t interested in sounding like anyone else, not even his favorite artists. “When I’m writing songs, I just take it as it is. It’s a download.

Of his many projects, “Christmas” is KeyLo_G’s favorite work. “It was made to be a joke song, but to be real, it came off mad authentic,” shares the rapper. “It started out to be something fun when I was making it.” At the end of the day, it was all about the vibe. “I don’t want to put listeners through a guessing game or test. It’s a vibe. I want you to be able lose yourself in the vibe going on around you when my music is playing.”


KeyLo_G has come a long way over the years. “I started off performing in front of friends. Then moved on to making music and posting on Instagram. What I’m proudest of is people being interested enough to be part of my journey. Getting to share it with them.”

45 REDLINE STOPS BY AND TALKS NEW EP "DARK MOON" AND MUCH MORE!

45 Redline is on the cusp of greatness with new EP ‘Dark Moon’


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

By Gabby Cast


SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Emo trap group 45 Redline is on the verge of success, debuting their second EP Dark Moon, and working with Grammy-nominated and award-winning producers and engineers like Million Dollar Snare, Q Made the Beat, J3M sound, Jorge Marroquin, and Tatum Martin. 


The five-member group started making music right out of high school in 2017 when original members Blake Evan and Cole Henry, who had then been making beats and learning how to engineer, joined forces with Flam Pkmn.


By 2020, they wanted to start a group and brought in additional members—people they worked with in the past and already knew. Those people included Duxe Lee, born in Sac and raised in Atlanta till his return to California, Hersadhero, and additional engineering and instrumentals from guitarist Miguel Ramirez. 


Signed to independent label Pakkmann Records, 45 Redline’s members all singularly contribute to their sound, but also do the photography and videography work seen on the cover of the group’s singles and EPs. Their writing, engineering, and production collectively put together their musical influences – think the guitar riffs of mid-90s to early 2000s rock, the lyrical structure of emo rappers like Juice Wrld, the beats of trap music, and the cadence of mumble rap, make their blend a unique sound thats heaviness is for a purpose. 


“For a second we were kind of going with not a planet theme, or a space theme, but a changing of time periods. With Red Sun, or Dark Moon, for me it's more of a mental health kind of thing. When you look at tides changing and stuff like that, it just kind of all correlates with our lyrics talking about when you're waking up and maybe you don't feel the greatest, or relationship problems, or whatever it is that kind of feels dark,” says Hersadhero. “Certain songs that we have like ‘bloodyred6,’ and ’Planet Pain,’ it all kind of just goes back to mental health and depression and the kind of the things that we want people to overcome, but not necessarily talking about the positive message. It's more so of how everybody kind of feels this way. And so we kind of want people not to feel like they're alone.”


Listeners are introduced to members of the group in their latest video released for “Nightmare.” Melodic guitars open the track and cross paths with equally melodic vocals with a trap beat, singing about what each member describes as a failed relationship. On Dark Moon, tracks like “It doesn’t matter” have a progressive metal-like style, while “Bloodyred6" and “Planet Pain” mix together hip-hop and screamo. 


Growing out of the small but mighty Sacramento scene means relocating to Los Angeles for 45 Redline. They make their move this August, but have previously performed in the Los Angeles area at Kush Stock Festival. Their sound is catchy in the hip-hop underground, but as a group, they also aim at bringing up mental health stigmas through the reality of those pains, where the positive cannot exist without the negative. Although the group's music surrounds that ethos, their career will only be going positive from here. 


“We want to be able to hint at the stuff that people don't want to talk about. I want to say things that might get a little bit too dark for certain people, but if it's too dark for certain people, that's the faint of heart. That's not what we kind of want; we want people to understand that it's not great outside, but you have to be okay with it.”

SINGER SONGWRITER 'WAA'daa'dah'Boi' STOPS BY AND TALKS NEW EP "JUST A MAN" AND MORE!

Waa’daa’dah Boi Blends the World’s Sounds to Appreciate Nature and Humanity in New Ways


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

By Francis Galang

 

HILO – Waa’daa’dah Boi will release his EP “Just A Man” on July 25. This EP follows his previous Album “Dah Ancient Inside” released earlier this year. Waa’daa’dah Boi self-describes as a singer/songwriter who blends together elements of hip-hop, gospel, R&B, and world music. 


His influences are wide. As he has moved from place to place growing up, he has amassed a large musical vocabulary from sounds heard all around the world. He is also very diverse in his

instrumental palette, learning many different instruments in each of the places he has lived. His inspirations include those who bridge together different forms of music, such as Burna Boy who bridges music together across continents in his Afrobeat, and Tems who brings new school to old school instruments. Waa’daa’dah Boi also loves to dance and uplift the souls of others. 


Waa’daa’dah Boi was born in Harlem, New York, developing himself out of the melting pot of cultures in the city. He grew up religious, which greatly influenced his music. His earliest genres are those of gospel, hip-hop, and R&B, learned through his time with church and family. At age 15, after 9/11 had happened, he moved from New York to Oregon and the Midwest, finishing high school and college in these areas. In this time, he became exposed to many different genres of music from around the world, learning djembe drums and conga drums and listening widely to music from all cultures. 


When he reached age 22, he moved to Hawaii to finish his bachelor’s degree and begin a master’s degree. In Hawaii, he became immersed in island music, reggae, and blues, encountering many different styles and instruments that are uncommon in today’s musical landscape. He learned openly from the many cultures of Hawaii, especially from the Filipino, Japanese, and Samoan people there. 


He began writing instrumentals which blend the multiculturalism of Hawaii and New York. He became Waa’daa’dah Boi as he helped people out and performing these instrumentals. He says, “Instruments are so full of life. You can add so much to your voice through instruments.” 


As he began incorporating digital elements into his music, he became a recording artist, mixing his vocals with a diverse palette of instruments and world-styles. Themes dominant in his music include the harmony between human beings, our connection with nature, cultures connecting as world cultures, and the healing of the soul through music. 


Right now, Waa’daa’dah Boi is in the process of recording his first music video for the single “Just A Man” –  one of three singles from his EP of the same name, with the other two singles being “Best Friend” and “Taking It In.”


“Just A Man” sees Waa’daa’dah Boi return to his roots in a simple and fun-to-listen-to project. The EP will release on his birthday on July 25.


“With this project, I want to do something simple but profound,” he said. “I want to play with change through sound. Just A Boy will incorporate elements of Afro-Pop, Afrobeat, R&B, and hip-hop. It’ll bring in Caribbean, Hawaiian, and Nigerian sounds on its beats and instrumental energies.” 

 

On his previous LP “Dah Ancient Inside,” Wah’daa’dah Boi reflects on the magnificence of Hawaii, thinking about the pandemic-affected world and the ways in which God can be found in nature. The album was written in the midst of the pandemic in 2020, where Waa’daa’dah Boi spent a great deal of time contemplating. 


“I was going through many things at that time,” he said. “I’m raised very Christian, and I was thinking about all the religions of the world and what it would be like if we had all gotten along. To learn to praise God, no matter what you call him, and to appreciate the life that was given to us.” 


He connects these religious reflections to those about nature and culture. 


“I was inspired from my Creator, seeing all the beautiful surroundings around me,” he said. “It’s all a beautiful thing created by God, but also made by human beings as well. Dah Ancient Inside is about what it’s like to be in part of the Creator and be a being inside of the world He created. It’s also about what it’s like to witness nature with eyes that are not dulled by modern-day fast-paced society. It encourages people most-of-all to just take time and look at nature.” 

 

In both of these projects, Waa’daa’dah Boi thanks his personal crew, family, and friends for their inspiration and motivation. He is excited to be releasing “Just A Man” to all major streaming platforms and finish filming the music video for that single. Afterward, he hopes to perform more live shows and travel more with his music. 


“Ultimately, I hope to affect people in a positive way with all this,” he said.

HIP HOP RECORDING ARTIST 'YOUNGWORLDIBI' TALKS UP HIS NEW RECORD "BLACKOUT" PLUS MORE CURRENT PROJECTS

With Blackout, Youngworldibi makes his own way into hip hop universe


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

By Kurt Beyers


With the upcoming release of his second album, Blackout, set for global distribution on July 14, Youngworldibi hopes to break out. He already has 40 or more songs out, including his first album, Taking The Throne, but with this new one he wants to get his music to a much wider audience.


“I started writing at 15, and then I got locked up,” he said, and the locked up took place at age 17. “That's when I really took this serious and did a whole lot of writing, to the point where I don't have to write much now. It was just, you know, for hooks and stuff like that.”


Another motivating factor for him is to quiet the doubters: “When people say you can't do something, if you are a competitor, that drives you,” he said.


Youngworldibi (he pronounces the ibi as separate letters: Eye-Bee-Eye), was born and raised in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and now lives there and in Camden, New Jersey. His music has always been hip hop. It’s what he listened to as a kid, when he “used to blast it all the time.”


“I just love that style,” he said.


When he started writing, he wrote hip hop. His influences were The Notorious Big, Jay-Z, Juelz and Cam’Ron and the Diplomats and Lil Wayne.


“It was Big that actually made me want to start,” he said. 


He has been putting his music out in front of the public as a professional for two years now. About Blackout and its 13 tracks, he says, “Honestly, I think it's the best tracks I've put together thus far. And this is not just one style, one style of beat. I switch it up.”


Rapping to different beats is important to him. He chooses the beats for his songs based on whether he likes them. He doesn’t want to get stuck in just one style, and he takes professional pride in going for his own unique style and, with no major label backing him, trying to forge his own career and audience.


He describes that audience as “all those true hip hop heads out there looking for something different.”


He says he can’t explain his own style. It is “just different.” But he is heavy into the lyrical aspect of music, yet the sound of rap, the beats, has changed since he was 15.


“So I gotta try to find a way to blend in while still being different.”


He plays with music. On his Facebook page, he has a little video of him rapping freestyle to Jay-Z and Cam’Ron’s “Welcome to New York City.”


“I just like that beat,” he said. “To me, personally, that's a classic,” so one day in the studio he played that beat and freestyled his own rap to it.


“As a writer, you write so much sometimes stuff is just in your head. So when you play the beat you start rapping and it just kind of comes out.”


Now there’s Blackout.


The best track for him is “Blue Pills.”


“It's got a a club sound to it. At the same time, my style’s hard, gritty. I'm lyrical with it, and I kind of go in on it. I talk kind of greasy on it.”


The album also reflects his desire to change up styles, to find what he likes and mix them up.


“You’ll hear some beats,” he said. “I'm trying to expand, trying to grow as an artist. It’s real lyrical, and it just speaks my truth. You know, everything I've been through.”


The album has his struggles – growing up, prison, and the hard work of trying to break through professionally with his music.


And, he adds, “It's definitely a good listen.”

HIP HOP RECORDING ARTIST "KUNSERVATIVE" STOPS BY AND TALKS ABOUT HIS NEW SINGLE "LIGHTA" AND MUCH MORE!

Energetic Artist, Kunservative, Brings Us a Fresh R&B/Trap-infused Single for Summer


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

By: Nadia Sobehart


Singer-songwriter Kunservative is a musician (and businessman) who fuses R&B with trap soul beats to take listeners on a musical journey. Hailing from St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands, the artist is an ambassador to his homeland and renowned in the Calypso and Soca scene. His newest single, “Lighta,” brings us a fresh new sound for summer complete with vibrant energy and island vibes.


“Lighta” is a song that speaks to love. It tells of having a spark for someone and the things in life you would conquer for that someone. The ballad weaves simple vocals with a chorus for a smooth, strong delivery of emotion.


Overall, Kunservative’s music can best be described as a truthful telling of real life. “My life is a movie, guaranteed,” says the artist. “I express and sing what most people are feeling and not able to express. Relationships and all of life’s stuff.” Music comes naturally to the performer, who can simply close his eyes and let new music flow through his brain. “I don’t have a set way of writing. I don’t really write. I envision anything I want to sing about. Close my eyes and just go with the flow—whatever goes through my mind” explains Kunservative of his unconventional “writing” process. 


Also known as Spacey and Shamall Ferdinand, Kunservative has been making waves in the local music scene for years. Participating in the St. Croix Festival Soca Monarch competition, he was a finalist in 2020 with his hit songs “Fete Interview” and “Sanctuary.”


With strong vocals and a passion for spreading light through his talent, Kunservative has graced the stage as an opening act for reggae artists including Collie Buddz, Third Wold, and R. City. He has collaborated with artists and provided background vocals for numerous collaborations over the years. An active church member, Kunservative also plays the drums at church. The singer and songwriter’s talents go beyond writing—he is above all else, an outstanding musician.


Kunservative acknowledges that nothing in life is perfect—whether that’s getting writer’s block occasionally or wanting to live up to your potential when the road ahead is still long. “I can’t wait for my journey to start,” says the artist. “I want to have something to be proud of.” While humble about his current position, conservative knows it won’t be long until his hard work is recognized. 


These days, Kunservative is in the midst of signing to a major label. He works alongside producers Masai Harris, Bengi, loudestro, and Ralph Tiller, among others. 

 By next year, he plans to partner with artists across major labels and sign to a label himself. He looks forward to leaving the island life behind for international performance adventures.
