“My childhood was filled with me being the center of attention since I was the only male in my immediate family.”

Check out the interview with Shad Davis exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.­­­­

Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Shad Davis:
It all started when I was young, I always loved music and how it made people feel. My childhood was filled with me being the center of attention since I was the only male in my immediate family. I was always told I had the gift of gab.

What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
I usually just tell people before they hear my music it’s not me and this song is gonna be big one day. Also, I would flood my social media one day with the song I want to be heard that day.

What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
My greatest challenge is to be heard by more people, I overcame this challenge by doing more shows and always being ready for an opportunity to show my talent.

How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
The music scene is growing every day in my city, young artists are making great music and wanting to be heard. I like that a lot of the artists are collaborating with more artist than normal. I don’t like that majority of my city doesn’t support local artists.

Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
The future of music is all over the place. I feel like without the huge impact of the internet a lot of artists wouldn’t be where they are right now which is good in cases where artists lack support in their hometown.

What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Just keep pushing, don’t give up, and never stop sharing your music on social media and also via email which is the biggest loophole of the industry. Also learn the business side of the music industry.

What inspires you to write your next song?
I’m always inspired by other artists around me and the fans who support me and want me to continue.

What are the steps you take to make a song?
I listen to the beat over and over. Go through a couple hooks and rhyme schemes I can use.

What do you think makes a great song?
Great melodies and relative subjects are always the way to go to make a great song.
