“The internet is taking over and the labels are looking bad because artists are starting to do everything by themselves.”
Check out the interview with LAMBO exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
LAMBO: I made a song called “Fullyloaded or Nothing” which featured my childhood friend. I did the song because I fell in love with the beat and when my friends and family heard it they were just so amazed. I always was in love with music but wasn’t trying to be in the front line. I was trying to push my team but they thought differently. My career as an artist started in Brooklyn opening up for Manio.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
I used to email everybody my music, people I knew and people I didn’t; that was my way of getting heard.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
Staying relevant and staying focused on my craft. I used to get side tracked real fast, but now I understand that hard work pays off. I keep that in mind every time I get side tracked and the key thing I do now is film everything to show my growth.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
I like that everybody is understanding the business and there’s a lot of unity. The only thing I don’t like is that some of the artists that have a lot of power don’t reach out to the up and coming ones. That’s why the grind is a lil harder which is cool; it’s always good to be humble and reach out
Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
Right now I see it going great because now you are starting to see people coming out with their own sound. The internet is taking over and the labels are looking bad because artists are starting to do everything by themselves.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Stay patient and stay focused, don’t ever use the word can’t.
What inspires you to write your next song?
Life actions and my team.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
I let the beat talk to me and go from there. I got many different ways I make songs. I might first work on the hook or I might just go off the title or I just might write a whole verse and get the hook last.
What do you think makes a great song?
All facts, the more you speak about facts the better because you are not thinking too hard.
