“I’m a true artist. I feel like it’s my responsibility to paint a picture of my life to leave behind when I’m gone through sound or whatever field is most necessary at the time.”

Check out the interview with Eyezic Haze exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.

Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Eyezic Haze:
I was able to start my journey by researching all possible avenues and opportunities that’ll bring me closer to my goal. Focusing on the most beneficial routes and staying determined brought me to where I am right now. It all started 5 years ago.

What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
I host my own events.

What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
The greatest challenge is getting other people, whether they’re close to me or not, to see my vision. The best way to overcome this is to lead by example and execute plans properly.

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 my hometown is diverse. This is coming from my perspective though. I’m sort of on the other side of the tracks. People don’t take hip hop as anything serious or that has any potential and respect I feel. That’s one thing I don’t like. All genres hold weight in music. Whatever you can connect to and express yourself with is important.

Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
I think the future of music’s going to be on streaming platforms. If you want to have individual success in this era you need your own platform. Something like an app that has all your information in one place.

What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
I would tell other upcoming artists to take control of themselves. Quit waiting on some 360 deal to appear out of nowhere. No label’s going to hear a track on Soundcloud with under 10,000 plays. And if they do you probably will get an offer that isn’t even worth your spit on the concrete.

What inspires you to write your next song?
Anything really. I’m a true artist. I feel like it’s my responsibility to paint a picture of my life to leave behind when I’m gone through sound or whatever field is most necessary at the time. That’s what artists are here for in my opinion. At the end of the day, there’s a lot of different things and vibes that inspire me randomly.

What are the steps you take to make a song?
It varies all the time honestly. Most of the time lately though (over the last year and a half I’d say), I find a beat, vibe out to it for a bit, and freestyle a few times. If I don’t like the freestyles then I’ll scrap them and write to it. If not that, I’ll have a verse already written and mold it to a beat I find.

What do you think makes a great song?
There’s only one thing that makes a great song for me. It has to give me chills at some point during the listen. If that happens I consider it a job well done.
