“As far as the fans go they are tough. I believe it’s that way because they haven’t seen anyone make it to the next level. I’m taking the challenge to show them it’s possible.”
Check out the interview with Yukon exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Yukon: I started my music career in January 2015. The previous summer before that I moved back home to New Britain, Connecticut from Atlanta, Georgia. Spending my last dollars I purchased my own studio equipment and I’ve been recording and engineering myself ever since.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Do what you love, love what you do.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
In my position right now I would say the company I keep around. I need those who truly want to see me reap all of the benefits knowing that if I win we all win.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
The best way for me is music videos. The fans want to see visuals. I’ve realized that 30-60 second clips on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter you can gain a new fan because they will want to see more and maybe even share your clip.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
My hometown, New Britain. Very small city. Few established artists, but everyone pretty much has their own sound. As far as the fans go they are tough. I believe it’s that way because they haven’t seen anyone make it to the next level. I’m taking the challenge to show them it’s possible.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
I see myself traveling the world spreading my movement.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
My biggest inspiration is where I came from, where I am now, and where I’m headed in the future physically and mentally. I look up to everyone who made it out the struggle with no handouts. That’s not easy at all.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
I like all of the originators of this new music. There are a lot of artists who steal others sound and get popular off that. I think that hurts the game and their career. Other than that it’s great.
