“The music scene in my hometown of Louisville was a little slow, now it’s starting to get recognized. With more participation from the music lovers in the city, I believe it can grow more.”

Check out the interview with Tissy B exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.

Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Tissy B:
It started in the late 1990s. I used to go to 550 Studio in downtown Louisville to record. I later met Kool Daddy Fresh and started to collaborate and record music in different studios.

What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
I have CDs pressed up from Atlanta as well as dance contests to my music.

What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
The greatest challenge in today’s entertainment business is finding time to link up with people in the industry.

How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
The music scene in my hometown of Louisville was a little slow, now it’s starting to get recognized. With more participation from the music lovers in the city, I believe it can grow more.

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 going to be way different than before simply because of the up springing of technology which makes it easier to engage. At the same time it makes it harder to weed out the bad from the good. Staying up with the future of technology will definitely make more artists be a part of it.

What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Put money toward your dreams and believe in yourself when no one else does.

What inspires you to write your next song?
Everyday life inspires me to write my next song. It’s just how I feel at the time that inspires me. I’m a Gemini so I can change up at any minute.

What are the steps you take to make a song?
I really tune into the beat. If I can’t feel the beat how I want to, it wouldn’t be for me to write to. I can write to anything, but if I feel it I can write faster with a much better outcome.

What do you think makes a great song?
Most definitely the beat makes a great song. Sometimes the lyrics suck, but it could still be a great song nowadays anyways.
