Check out the interview with Starkynova Muzik exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Starkynova Muzik: I started making music in 2013 and ever since I just always wanted to perfect my craft and make dope music. I was always into music from a young age; I grew up on reggae, hip hop, rib, soul, etc.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
The best advice I can offer to young kids is to stay focused, follow your dreams, and if you’re really serious about making it in music you have to always learn and invest in yourself. No one can do those things for you.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
The hardest challenges and tasks for an up and coming music producer such as myself is building a brand in a market where there is an abundance of artist are doing the same thing.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
I find that the best way to promote and advertise music is by using utilizing social media and streaming platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Soundcloud, YouTube, and Instagram.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
The town where I currently reside is in Monticello, New York. As far as I know no one ever made it big out of this town. Aside from that, there is a lot of talent in the area just waiting to be discovered. The fans are very supportive and they definitely show love.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
A year from today I see myself being in high demand for the sounds that I can craft together.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
Some of my biggest inspirations were Nas, Jay Z, Neptunes, Timberland, and Harry Fraud. Today I look up to Jay Z because of the way he evolved throughout his career.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
I feel like the music coming out today all sounds the same especially that trap sound. I’m not knocking it, but I feel like music was better when there were more unique sounds being put out.
