Check out the new song from Dub-T – Life of The Party ft. Blake Johnson
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
I’m from Orange Park Florida right outside of Jacksonville, but when I got to UCF that’s when the music started. I headlined a band named GreyScaleMusic and we had great local success. A few years after the band eventually decided to part ways I had to keep the momentum going. I became solo and now work directly with one of the most successful producers in Orlando, Gary Carolla. My new hot single Life of The Party is produced by Coda Collins, a well known producer/remixer out of San Diego.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
Life of The Party is a journey inside the mind of the person who is actually going out to have fun. With always the underlying theme of wanting to be the center of attention, ‘Life of The Party,’ and meet someone to fall in love with eventually, hence the lyrics.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
Industry challenges are getting on major FM radio and getting the budget to produce and put out quality music is not a small number. But you gotta do what you gotta do you, don’t always need money to open doors when you back it up with hard work and hustle.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
When my first band GreyScaleMusic broke up, I had to fend for myself. But that’s what this game is about, people making choices about their careers and not even thinking about you! That’s why I def prefer the solo route.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Artists don’t sign to anyone who has not done anything in the industry. The only contract I signed was because the person I chose to partner with has 10,000,000 records sold, ten million, what you wanna sell?
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
No is not an option, don’t be regular. In order to achieve your success you have to be different, that’s where the greatness comes from.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
I’m a big Twitter fan. All those contacts and access used to cost money, now it’s at the tip of your fingers for free to promote yourself and build relationships.
