“Music is a form of therapy. We as artists should be able to express ourselves in a way that will be therapeutic to us as well as the people we want it to touch.”
Check out the interview with Dominique King exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Dominique King: I had the opportunity to audition for The Voice. From there, I was able to birth my first project.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
Mostly word of mouth. Social media has been my best friend, being able to post and have friends share it with their friends.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
I guess so far just trying to get my music out. I’m just going day by day.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
The music scene here in Huntsville is starting to grow. But at the same time we don’t get the recognition that we need. Well it’s not much that I don’t like except the fact we can’t seem to work together in this area. We need to do better in terms of working with one another.
Where do you think the future of music is going? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
The future of music will be going up. Music is a form of therapy. We as artists should be able to express ourselves in a way that will be therapeutic to us as well as the people we want it to touch.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Don’t give up on your dream! Keep pushing, keep grinding, keep praying, and fight for what you believe in.
What inspires you to write your next song?
Every day events. Things that have happened to personally. Things going on in the world. Most times it just pops up in my head and I start writing.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
I literally just sit down and I have fun doing what I do.
What do you think makes a great song?
There’s not a true definition of a great song. I may like a song, and someone else may not. If the song is able to reach someone I believe that speaks for itself.
