Speaker 1 (00:50):

Uh, so I'm from Madagascar. So, um, yeah, so African, um, but I'm, we are a, we called operation. So I have, um, gone to African and Malaysian and Indonesia in me, but yeah, I was raised there. I'm still here, but yeah.

Speaker 1 (01:29):

My are a little small


Speaker 2 (01:30):

It's OK. Come in. Yeah, yeah,


Speaker 1 (01:33):

Yeah.


Speaker 2 (01:33):

But so then when I started to watch your videos, I'm like, yo, you really, you know, go by this ation, right?


Speaker 1 (01:42):

Yeah. So it's more like, um, it's more like afterwards, you know what I mean?

Speaker 2 (02:14):

Sounds so when did you like realize


Speaker 1 (02:27):

I was really a shy kid? I always loved to sing. I just, you know, kind of was afraid of judgment, I guess, you know, and I was growing up, but, um, I started finding my confidence after I, um, released a cover song. It was a cover song of a song that's never been heard in 20 years back home. Right. So, um, I released a cover and then the, the original singer contacted me and remade the song.


Speaker 2 (02:57):

That's beautiful.


Speaker 1 (02:58):

But he was studio yeah. Back in, in Spain. So I was like, damn, like I was so blessed to have that opportunity. So that kind of like, you know, I was known for that back home for covers, you know? And I was like, no, like I, I wanna do my own sound because when I do covers, I imitate there. Um, I wanna like copy their tone, you know? Oh. So I wanted to do like, yeah. So I wanted to do like something on my own. And I started to like, learn how to write in English. Uh, English is my third language, you know? So it's a, it's a very, kind of like hard for me to write. But at the same time, I, I think like I express myself really well. So that, that works, you know? So yeah. It's all about soul. Yeah.

Speaker 2 (03:41):

Your music is very like soulful. It gets so much like soul and then so much whatever you feeling. So first what's your sign?


Speaker 1 (03:51):

I'm an NA

Speaker 2 (03:53):

Oh, Aries. Beautiful. Okay. So you got some fire in, you definitely got some passion in you. So what is some kinda like artists that inspired you in regards to just being able to express whatever you put in your music?

Speaker 1 (04:09):

Um, you know what, um, my first influence I would say was a, she's an African singer. So she was a, a Maga singer and my mom was helping her. She was going through like, you know, kind of like the voice, but not really the voice, but back home, it was called PABA and she was, she was, my mom was helping her and then I was singing with her while she was, um, you know, rehearsing for her performances and like for her competitions. So that's like, she was like one of my biggest influence, I would say her name was TUI. And then as far as like mainstream, I would say, um, Erica bou.


Speaker 2 (04:51):

Oh, beautiful.


Speaker 1 (04:53):

Yeah. Jeanie ICO, um, Lauren Hill, you know, um, I'm more of an old school person, but

Speaker 2 (05:02):

No,


Speaker 1 (05:02):

As you, cause that's all we heard back home, everything we heard back home is just old school stuff. Yes.


Speaker 2 (05:09):

Yes. So it's crazy. Cause as you named them artists, I think of your song, baby love and the song, you know, baby love is very, very soulful. So that that's the question I was gonna get into is like what gave you, um, the courage to express the things that you expressed in, um, the song baby love and your other like soul songs.


Speaker 1 (05:35):

Yeah, that's a really good question. Um, you know, when I, um, when I created baby love, I was actually, we created it from scratch, you know, so I was there with the, um, producer. His name is DPO Jimmy, um, out here is a local producer, but basically we created that and I was like, you know, know, add some saxophone, add this, if there's anything that has saxophone, you know, it just touches the soul, you know, in my, so I just, um, I didn't really go off with like a specific vibe, I guess, with that sound, but I just wanted people to, um, feel while you just while you just, um, why you just told soul. So that's all, that's all I wanted to do, you know, music really like just anything that touches the soul and no, for sure. I feel like, um, um, as I say, like I'm, I'm, I'm an nearest, you know, to sign all the sign people out there, but you know, I'm an nearest, um, I used to not talk about science before, by the way, until I got here,


Speaker 2 (06:40):

I love it. I love it. Oh God. That's like one of my


Speaker 1 (06:43):

Favorite people, but yeah, I learned about it, but you know, I have that fire in me. I wanted to add that fire in there, you know, with what, with how, um, expressive I am, um, um, talking about, you know, um, lollipop, vibe, you know, kind of like a metaphor, but at the same time, it's like something I wanna say in that, you know, like turn down, turn down the lights, you know, stuff like that expressive. Right. But at the same time, the soft sound of my voice mm-hmm,


Speaker 2 (07:14):

<affirmative>

Speaker 1 (07:15):

Make it, um, you know, kind of fire and smooth at the same time. So I wanted to


Speaker 2 (07:21):

Be very touching, very


Speaker 1 (07:22):

Touching. Yeah. Appreciate that.


Speaker 2 (07:26):

Very touching. Yes. Yes. So I'll see you, um, you know, you like shows and I see you, um, perform well as shows. So do you like performing love? I, you played a good guitar where,


Speaker 1 (07:42):

You know what I'm telling you. I like right now I'm actually looking into performance outside of Utah because I don't wanna be too comfortable, um, in a way that I don't grow. You know what I mean? Oh, right. Yeah. Because like, yeah, because I feel like I really I'm grateful for all the shows. I, I tried to do like two shows a month, you know? Um, and I used to do shows, like I started doing shows. I did it for like, I wanna go do something so I can get paid and out here and promoters, um, I got hacked right on my Instagram. I got hacked. That was almost at five. I got hacked and I had to start from scratch in November and I like to do organically first. Right. So as you know, that's how I like to do it. When people see your numbers that don't really understand what's going on would not, was


Speaker 2 (08:57):

Like, that's the CRA great observation.


Speaker 1 (09:01):

Mm-hmm <affirmative> so I, um, I just, I've been kind of like, okay, I have to start out to like, go from scratch again. And you know, I'm, I'm like, I consider myself as, you know, someone that likes to go and look for opportunities. I'm not, not much of people don't come to you. You know what I mean? So like, so I, I would like go and like, look for shows, you know, look for where I can submit my music, you know, like right now I'm trying to get into a show in LA, you know, like I'm trying to like, kind of like expand my horizon because, you know, as I say, like, I wanna grow is what I'm saying, so,


Speaker 2 (09:35):

Yeah. Right, right. As you should. And that's a beautiful way to look at things too. And it's crazy how you mention numbers and music. Cause a lot of the times in today's day and age, you know, they, Trump, I guess, popularity over what, um, talent is. So how would you say it was a struggle coming back? Um, and how did your supporters find you? Or did you feel like, you know, it was faster cause you was already established.

Speaker 1 (10:08):

Can you repeat that question? I'm sorry.

Speaker 2 (10:10):

How was your supporters able to like, you know, find you over after you got hat?


Speaker 1 (10:17):

Oh yeah.


Speaker 2 (10:17):

When ports looking for you or did you have to really completely start over with people who support your music?


Speaker 1 (10:24):

Oh, lemme tell you about that. That's a good question. Because I had never talked about this, right?


Speaker 2 (10:29):

Yeah. Yeah. I'm you, or did you like have to regain like what happens

Speaker 1 (10:37):

For real? So, um, so I, I created cuz I did not have a EPK before. Like I'm still creating my okay, right, right now, like building it. So I was like, okay, I have to create that to put it out there so people can, can find me. Right. I was like, no, I have to have to put that on my Instagram. So that's what I did first. And then I also sent like messages to everybody that I remember.


Speaker 2 (11:07):

<laugh> that that's that's you from for real them back. Yeah.


Speaker 1 (11:16):

It's to do that, you know?


Speaker 2 (11:18):

No, it's it's okay.


Speaker 1 (11:21):

Yeah.


Speaker 2 (11:21):

Nothing. That's literally handing out your mistake on the street.


Speaker 1 (11:25):

Yeah. Because like I'm telling you like what I'm, I'm always frustrated about this because I feel like nowadays person, but


Speaker 2 (11:34):

No,


Speaker 1 (11:35):

That's how we heard home. Everything we heard back home is just old school stuff. Yes.


Speaker 2 (11:40):

Yes. So it's crazy. Cause as you, them artists, I think of your song, baby love and the song, you know, baby love is very, very soulful. So that that's the question I was gonna get into is like what gave you, um, the courage to express the things that you expressed in, um, the song baby love and your other like soul.


Speaker 1 (12:06):

Yeah. That's a really good question. Um, you know, when I, um, when I created baby love, I was actually, we created it from scratch, you know? So I was there with the, um, producer. His name is DPO Jimmy, um, out here is a local producer, but basically we created that and I was like, you know, add some saxophone at this and there's anything that has saxophone, you know, it just touches the soul, you know, in my, so I just, um, I didn't really go off with like a specific vibe, I guess, with that sound, but I just wanted people to, um, feel why you just, why you just, um, why you just told. So that's all, that's all I wanted to do, you know, music really like just anything that Tashas the soul and no, for sure. I feel like, um, um, as I say, like I'm, I'm, I'm an nearest, you know, <laugh> to sign all the science people out there, but you know, I'm an nearest, um, I used to not talk about science before, by the way, until I got here,


Speaker 2 (13:12):

I love it. I love it. Oh God. That's like one of my

Oh yeah. When


Speaker 2 (16:49):

Supporters looking for you or did you have to really completely start over with people who supported your music?


Speaker 1 (16:55):

Oh, let me tell you about that. That's a good question. Because I had never talked about this, right?


Speaker 2 (17:01):

Yeah, yeah. I wanna know. I'm like, I'm sorry I had to be murdered. I'm like, how did people find you or did you like have to regain like what happens


Speaker 1 (17:09):

For real? So, um, so I, I created cuz I did not have a APK before. Like I'm still creating my okay, right, right now, like building it. So I was like, okay, I have to create that to put it out there so people can, can find me. Right. I was like, no, I have to have to put that on my Instagram. So that's what I did first. And then I also sent like messages to everybody that I remember <laugh>


Speaker 2 (17:40):

That that's OK. You know what I mean? That's how you gotta start from the bottom for real them back. Yeah. Like, Hey I'm here.


Speaker 1 (17:48):

It's OK to do that. You know?


Speaker 2 (17:50):

No, it's it's okay.


Speaker 1 (17:52):

Yeah.


Speaker 2 (17:53):

That that's literally handing out your mistake on the street.


Speaker 1 (17:57):

Yeah. Because like I'm telling you like the, what I'm, I'm always frustrated about this because I feel like nowadays everything is just handed can talking about talent via numbers. Mm-hmm <affirmative>, it's very kind of, at this point would be hard for me to, to saying even anything about that, because at this point, okay, talent matters, but you're not your numbers also matter, you know what I mean? Your numbers matter. And you have to find the right way in, in the industry right now. You know what I mean to do that. So what I'm trying to do right now is like build a team because you have, you have to build a team and I've be, I'm trying to partner up with a band because I wanna start singing live with bands, you know, sometimes, um, I create


Speaker 2 (18:58):

Cool and shit,


Speaker 1 (18:59):

I got songs. I got like different type of scholars. I got R and B drill. I got so


Speaker 2 (19:06):

Yes, I wanted to, I talk about that. R and B drill track that you did. I heard that track and it's, it's cool as shit. It's dope. It's dope. Like what was the response? And then you, you just it's like your appearance is so soft. You can hear the fiery, but then when you threw the drill, I was like, that's dope. That's dope as fuck.


Speaker 1 (19:28):

Thank you. So sure. What is he's? Uh, he's from France. He's from Paris, but he moved here, you know? And then, um, yeah, so he, he created that, that, and then we're doing another one. It's um, I perform it sometimes it's R and B drill. I wanna do R and B drill until five right now. So I have that project going. Um, I have R and B too. I'm trying to release a video, you know, every time I drop a song,


Speaker 2 (19:53):

So that's fine.


Speaker 1 (19:55):

Yeah. So yeah, it's more, a bit more expressive that way, you know <laugh>

Speaker 2 (19:59):

Yeah. Cause people are visual and I, I always tell artists, I love when you give people a storyline, I mean, while like a visual storyline of your song versus having them figure it out themselves. Cause they can get taken away from whatever you're trying to express.


Speaker 1 (20:16):

Yeah. It just makes so much more sense, you know, mm-hmm <affirmative> cause see you, you know, they see, you know, they gotta

Speaker 2 (20:26):

See you too. They gotta see the essence of everything. You know what I'm saying? That's so dope though. I love your personality and I think your music is great. So tell us what's next. Before we wrap it up, like tell us what's next. Are you gonna go on tour? I think I see something in regards to that. Maybe traveling.


Speaker 1 (20:43):

Yeah. Okay. So right now, um, my next, um, um, show is, um, at the Metro music call down here. <inaudible> uh, it's on the 29th. Uh I'm actually, I've been, so I have been selling my ticket. Okay. I'm a hustler. I sell my ticket, I drop him off, you know, and it's a good way

Speaker 2 (21:03):

You do drop what's


Speaker 1 (21:06):

For my music. You know, I grab my ticket, you know, I drop him off. I'm gonna do that this week with everybody and um, yeah, it's almost sold out. Um, I'm excited choir. Yeah. So on that it was uh, it's uh, his name is SI Lanta. He's the main artist. And then, you know, he got me in the lineup, so appreciate. Um, but anyways, uh, next one, hopefully September, I'm still deciding on the day have two dates, but it's uh, it's gonna be in LA.
