Check out the interview with Trell exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.

SKILLY: Tell us where this all began. What is your history in the music scene?
T: It actually started about six and a half years ago. that’s around the time I took a devastating loss of my sister Sentrell. after her death, it inspired me to put all my pain and hurt I was feeling into music.

What are the best ways to promote yourself as an artist? Any tips you can give us?
Well, most definitely I think the internet is one of the best ways to promote yourself and your music. And whenever the opportunity presents its self-do as many shows as possible. And of course, you have to get out there and push your music with your cd’s. so there are various ways an artist can promote themselves those are just a few.

What do you ultimately want to become in your career?
A well-structured businessman first because there are things I’m still learning when it comes to the business side of music. Second, a well rounded respected lyrics who put out dope music and hits.

What is the hardest thing about being in the music business?
The hardest I think to me is finding that right piece to the puzzle to make everything fit. That person or people that can start that fire for you and give you that opportunity to showcase your talent to the world. I think that’s the hardest getting your music in the right hands. putting out the music doing the shows all the things that go with being an artist there’s nothing hard about that. Getting your music in the right hands in the music business is the hardest I think.

What is it like in your city? What is the music scene like, and how is it like living there overall?
My city is like any other city you got your adversities, everyone, trying to make some way out. for as the music scene it’s starting to warm up here we got artists like Tech N9ne and the strange music camp doing there thing and I’m sure you’ve heard of A-1 Bentley he’s making some noise as well in the industry. So my city, we are coming. I love my city I think my city is the most slept on city when it comes to talent. The overall living here I would say is no different than living anywhere else you have your suburbs you have your hoods. When you grow up in the suburbs you’re sheltered from struggle cause most families are what you call middle class so its a lot they don’t endure like someone growing up in the hood. Growing up in the hood your subject to encounter everything from robbery to murder so living here is no different than living in Harlem or LA. You just have to be careful and stay in your lane. But for the most part, we love to kick it.

What are some of the advice you can give and share with other artists who are still trying to come up?
Learn as much as you can when it comes to the business aspects.

What is the best thing that’s ever happened in your career?
I would have to say this moment here, being featured in a major hip-hop urban magazine would be at the top at this moment of my career. Featured in Skilly Magazine! This opportunity gives me a sense of how my music may be heading in the right direction. Or should I say coming to the right people? Cause if not I don’t think I wouldn’t be here now doing this interview.

What is your inspiration?
My inspiration would have to be the belief I have in my self when it comes to this music and the fans. To see your fans anticipate your next song or CD, it’s a feeling like no other. That’s every artist’s goal having people feeling their music.

Do you feel anyone can be successful now in today’s world of music?
I think anyone who has that drive determination who never gives up even after being rejected. who believes in there craft and self-has that chance to become successful.
