“The greatest challenge is finding individuals dedicated to creating and promoting timeless music; not just riding a wave.”
Check out the interview with KRWN exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
KRWN: In Baltimore on Lafayette and Bentalou at a seedy nightclub. My first exposure to universal sounds as a whole started in the military.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
Social media, grass root movements, and campaigns. It’s all politics in a wide spectrum.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
The greatest challenge is finding individuals dedicated to creating and promoting timeless music; not just riding a wave.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
It is very passionate and raw. It bleeds emotions based on poverty, sentiments of success, and violence. I love the immense creativity, but my heart is heavy by the jealousy that having a buzz may entail.
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 don’t know how the music of the future will sound. I just hope I’m still a part of it. Artists just have to be open to experimenting with different sounds and take some time to truly understand their craft. Good music never goes out of style.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Show patience and consistency.
What inspires you to write your next song?
Everything; I view every scenario as a possible song or story.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
I look for a simple and common connections in people; stuff we all face.
What do you think makes a great song?
Simplistic hooks with subtle nuances in the build up
