“Me personally I’m looking for longevity in the game, diamond and platinum hits, all else is a miss.”
Check out the interview with Ehvinchi exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Ehvinchi: It started for me as a kid. Back then I and my mom would take car rides throughout the inner city where I grew up and some suburban areas bumping Usher, Michael Jackson, MC Lyte, and DMX tapes. The feeling I got when I would listen to the lyrics were exactly what I needed to get my day going. The hypeness of the beat and the rhythm of the music would consume me. The feeling I can never forget it. At that time, around 5 or 6 years of age, I knew I wanted to be a musician or entertainer of some sort.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
My biggest advice would be hard work and proper preparation will guide you to conquer your goals if you want it bad enough. Also stay creative as well as have patience.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Some of the hardest tasks I would say is trying to always create that piece that will set you apart from the rest, creating something magnificent, something people won’t forget.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
Social media outlets such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as well as any other social media outlets that can help bring some type of attention to your craft. I will also say Soundcloud, Reverbnation, and other sites can help promote your music to a broader audience. Last but certainly not least, top promotion PR firms.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
I’m from Rochester, New York which is upstate New York. I love my city and my fans because they helped make me. Every experience can make a nigga or break a nigga. It made me. My city has talent, I feel a lot of the artists are overlooked, but by the grace of god I’m here and I’m looking to change that.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
A year from today I see myself as a growing artist but deff top 10.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
My biggest inspirations would be God, my fans, family, and music. I look up to no one because when I look up the sky is all I see.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
Honestly, I feel like some of it is rushed. Quick hits if you will. Me personally I’m looking for longevity in the game, diamond and platinum hits, all else is a miss.
