Check out the new song from Elle – Indigos
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
Well, I’m originally from Panama City, Florida but I now reside in Denver, Co. I lived in Colorado Springs previous to that for about 6 years. I’m a big movie buff and as odd as it sounds that’s how my love for music came about. At an early age I was obsessed with how much emotion could be evoked through a certain song or score contained within a film. After going to college for film for 2 years, I figured music was more my calling. I had been writing rhymes since like 13, so it came about organically.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
The current song I’m showcasing is one I recorded about a month ago. It pretty much speaks to the indigo children (you know who you are) who need to come out of the shadows and share their wonderful gifts. The world isn’t in the state it should be in, I feel like we have a duty to do. My music is the only way I know how to make people aware of what’s going on and to share knowledge I’ve picked up throughout my experiences.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
I wouldn’t say I’m exactly established in the industry yet. As an upcoming artist I feel it’s hard to get my music out there. Locally, I’ve been heard but I want to reach a larger audience. I guess it’s all about grinding and keeping up with social media.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
One of my biggest setbacks was when I first started recording I didn’t like any of my songs. I was writing songs for other people to enjoy rather than myself. Once I figured out my own sound and my own place in the world I realized I only had to live up to my own expectations. It just took a little maturation.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Artists need to be careful of following trends just to stay relevant. I feel like a lot of musicians go with what’s popular in fear of being ridiculed for being different.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
To other artists out there I’ll just say stay the course. If you really love what you do then keep working at it no matter how many people doubt you. You have to have an insane amount of belief in yourself. So just keep the faith.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
I like debuting my songs on my tumblr! ellesadventures.tumblr.com, go check it out. I also post cool hippie and mystical shit. I’m not the biggest fan of social networking, but I do have a Twitter and Facebook that I post music on as well. You can follow/add me:
