Movement Music

Featured artist: Fogey – Movement Music

As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Fogey from Wenatchee to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Fogey! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Fogey: Been writing poetry since grade school. I was a teenager when I started putting rhymes to beats, and it just continued to build from there. Wasn't really a choice to become an artist, but it was a choice to become serious about it.

The best advice given to me as an artist, was to be patient. Nothing in this industry comes easily, and never overnight.

What about concerts? Do you play live?

I do play live, I have been doing live shows for over 10 years. One of my favorite parts of making music.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

"You should emulate my rhymes, cause my lines are Zen; created by the Divine, they just find my pen."

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I am currently working on a new album titled, "Manifestations". My first full-length album to follow up two EPs. I have released a few singles recently, one of them features Madchild of Swollen Members, called "Born to Be Free". Then two other solo tracks, "Our World Is Crying" which has a powerful music video to go with it, and "Audible Thoughts", an intro to my upcoming album.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

If the contract was the right move for me, then yes. If it was a solid distribution deal, and I was able to keep full artistic control, then I would definitely be open to exploring that opportunity.

Any last words?

Much Love to our entire community and our region! I live in the Wenatchee Valley, in Central Washington, Pacific Northwest. Our community has supported my music for years, and continue to help my music grow.
