“Having a blog site is the best way I feel and posting things of your interest. Show people what you’re into and post your music. Share that on your social network.”
Check out the interview with Kellz exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Tell us where this all began. What is your history in the music scene?
Kellz: Louisiana. I’ve always been attracted to music more than anything. My first love was art though, drawing while listening to music was my getaway. I didn’t do any musical things until after I moved to Texas at age 13, tried doing a couple of rap songs but couldn’t do it. I couldn’t lie about a life or things I didn’t have, it didn’t sit well with me. I stopped until I got to college. I roomed with producer study majors and after that it got sparked.
What are the best ways to promote yourself as an artist? Any tips you can give us?
Having a blog site is the best way I feel and posting things of your interest. Show people what you’re into and post your music. Share that on your social network.
What do you ultimately want to become in your career?
Legend. Revolutionary. Creative. Designer.
What is the hardest thing about being in the music business?
Not fully getting your vision out. Not having backing like you should. Getting signed to a major label of course.
What is it like in your city? What is the music scene like, and how is it like living there overall?
My city Alexandria, Louisiana is a drug-run-down, shoot you in your yard, fiends in your friendly neighborhood, and robberies out the ass type city. It’s all about Boosie, Webbie, Wayne, Gates, Thug, Future, the whole Houston sound.
What are some of advice you can give and share to other artists who are still trying to come up?
Keep going and don’t let anyone take your vision away. Stick to it and things will be good for you.
What is the best thing that’s ever happened in your career?
Dropping my 1st EP. I’ve had some pretty cool recognition from Mike Dean, Istandard producers, Rude Boy Mag, and Coast 2 Coast, but dropping my 1st EP was everything to me.
What is your inspiration?
My main inspiration is vibes. That’s when you’re creating sounds that take you to a happy memory. My grandmother and grandfather are to, that’s where I get my music genes from.
Do you feel anyone can be successful now in today’s world of music?
Yea, especially with the market being over saturated with a lot of club music and I’m in the conscious lyrical lane.
