“We find ways to get people on social media to engage in our posts by posing questions and controversial topics.”
Check out the interview with Conscience Media exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Conscience Media: From Tony walking into Saint’s store and starting a conversation about acting. It was quickly discovered that they both had the same interests. From that point on, it was one project after another. We continue on the path daily.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
Digital presence is important. We find ways to get people on social media to engage in our posts by posing questions and controversial topics.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
People want you to do some very strange things to get a small chance at fame. People will also offer the world, for over half of the profit that you haven’t even made yet. We continue to push our projects independently and enjoy the fact that we are creating positive things that the world can share and pass on the messages to others.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
The music scene in DC is not that great. There are a lot of talented people, but they never get a chance to go anywhere. A lot of folks are hyped to start a project but either get discouraged or scared when they see the amount of work they have to put in to make the dream become a reality.
Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
There will be more independent artists and labels. Rap music will continue to change and splinter into different genres just like house music did. Artists just need to stay focused on their craft and stay current.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Never stop pushing for what you want. Do not be willing to compromise your morals or beliefs for a promise of fame. And also beware of people promising you the world if you pay them a crazy sum of money.
What inspires you to write your next song?
People, past experiences, movies, pretty much anything.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
Idea pops in head, start writing, think of how the video will be for the song which helps to write it.
What do you think makes a great song?
When you put your heart into it.
