“Remember your name and artwork is a business, it takes money to make money.”
Check out the interview with JUBI exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Tell us where this all began. What is your history in the music scene?
JUBI: My dad had a home studio in Jamaica and that’s how I started messing around with Pro Tools ad FL Studio at a young age. I made music a career choice at 15 years old right after I migrated to Philadelphia.
What are the best ways to promote yourself as an artist? Any tips you can give us?
In this day and age, social media is the way to go. Also, find great promoters who understand promoting and pay to get it done. Remember your name and artwork is a business, it takes money to make money.
What do you ultimately want to become in your career?
The highest of the highest, I can’t elaborate on that because the possibilities are endless. Though if I must say in one word, that word would be legend.
What is the hardest thing about being in the music business?
The hardest thing would be finding a great team to work with and you need that. Right now I’m doing everything by myself. Making money is the least of my problems. Getting love from the people is the real goal or should I say gold.
What is it like in your city? What is the music scene like, and how is it like living there overall?
Right now I live in Queens. There isn’t much popping off in Queens right now, but I want to be the one to do that. The clubs are great though. I’ve only been here for one year and its great so far.
What are some of advice you can give and share to other artists who are still trying to come up?
Make great music and believe in yourself. Also, study the ones that are doing it big right now.
What is the best thing that’s ever happened in your career?
The day I woke up and realized my music is starting to sound great. When I started to want to listen my own music 24/7. I’m getting high off my own supply.
What is your inspiration?
The intense desire to take care of my extended family.
Do you feel anyone can be successful now in today’s world of music?
Sadly, no. Not everyone has the mental vigor to persevere. However, to be more optimistic, you can if you have the passion and drive.
Where can we find you on social media?
