“What is inspires us is not necessarily certain people, but the energy of good music. We’re inspired by all the different styles of music and the vibes they give off.”
Check out the interview with ForeverFly exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
ForeverFly: In the break room of our old job. Hearing through mutual friends that we were both into music, we decided to take a listen to each other’s music and exchange contact info. We started off as solo artists and would just feature each other on our songs. It came to a point where so much of our music was done together that it led to an agreement of teaming up and pushing our music as a group.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Invest in yourself. And when we say invest, that doesn’t necessarily mean money. Invest time and effort into yourself. Work hard and perfect your craft, whatever it may be. The sky is the limit, but it all starts with you.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
The hardest challenge for us would have to be finding the most effective route for getting our music heard. We have the content, but lack the connections.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
Nowadays promoting your music has never been simpler. Soundcloud has probably been our best platform for getting our music heard being that you can upload as much music as you want for free. And with all the social media out there you can easily promote your music and connect with your fans for free.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
Atlanta is the music capital of the world. It’s a pretty dope city full of energetic loyal fans. Every concert is always live. If you can get your music heard down here, the opportunities are endless.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
A year from today we see ourselves having a hit record on the radio. We plan to connect with a lot more people and expand our fan base. The journey of success in this line of work can be a long one, but it’s a journey we’re willing to take. We plan on making music for years to come, it’s what we love to do.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
We’re inspired by hip hop artists, all way from Big Krit to Drake. What is inspires us is not necessarily certain people, but the energy of good music. We’re inspired by all the different styles of music and the vibes they give off. It makes you want to create your own style which is precisely what we’ve done.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
Music today is obviously very different from back in the day. It’s full of energy and a lot catchier. We like it. With so many different styles out there now, artists have to be a lot more creative in order to stand out which we feel we’ve successfully accomplished.
