Featured artist: Leekjaymusic – Upcoming indepedent artist
Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Leekjaymusic.
How did you decide to become an artist?
Leekjaymusic: My father put me in it and had me around it since the day i can remember. At age of 10, i partook in my first ever live performance. The song i performed was original but it was written by my father and i performed with my neighbor at the time who was 5 years older than me. We performed, and won first place. So my desire to be an artist definitely starts there. Then i began to pursue basketball at a high level with aspirations of a nba player. Through that process, i still was musically involved as i would link with my friends and make music wit them and freestyle over beats. I swayed away from writing for a while, as i didnt take it as serious as i did when i was 10. But when i hit college, i began to write to beats again and freestyle as often as everyday and even dabbling around in the studio, Then around november of 2016, my debut mixtape "now they know" dropped.
Make music thats you and no one else. Speak the truth as there is many fake artists present in the business.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I am constantly adding shows to perform at. Always looking to expand my brand and perform in front of live audiances. I have been performing live since i was 10 years old. I am now 20! However i wasnt consistently performing, this age is when i started. Sky is the limit when it comes to me and performing because its a part i love to do and i have dreams of hosting a nationwide tour. So im just excited to keep seeing my growth and improvement. I currently have two shows coming up for the summer and looking to add more.
