Check out the new song from Redd Head Juelz – CatWalk
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
I currently reside in Miami, FL, as of right now. In this music business, I absolutely love music. I mean, I’m always humming a tune or rapping (lol). I started off in a 4 member group when I was younger, we were just playing (lol), then I started taking it seriously when someone said that I got talent and would make it somewhere. I had a nice flow and my voice is distinctive, if I mess with the right people.
So me and one of my friends started a duo together, we were going somewhere but it didn’t work out, you know how the group thing goes (lol). So I went solo dolo and have been doing great ever since. I started networking with a lot of DJs locally where I’m from and also out of state and been getting my music out there, trying to let everyone know who this Redd Head is. I got my mixtape coming soon, Flyy Society, and working on my label FlyyQueens (lol)!
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
The song I am promoting right now is titled CatWalk. It’s a song I came up with for a fashion show that I did last year around Memorial weekend. It’s just all about a girl’s style, persona, knowing that as soon as she steps in a room or walks out on the street anywhere, she knows she’s got that CatWalk so she’s going to flaunt (lol) or for any models doing their thing motivating them when they’re on that runway. Basically I just thought about whenever I go out someone always telling me I look like I’m walking down the runway (lol), I guess because of my long legs!
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
I would say one of the hardest challenges I’m facing is having someone who is going to support you and have your back with it. Like put their all into you, believing in you and your music, and knowing you are going to go somewhere. But sometimes it’s also like music reps take you seriously, meaning seeing you as business only from a female artist, you feel me?
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
The only set back that I had was going through the group transition and going solo to be honest. I mean it was only me that was really taking it serious and it has be both people. We weren’t moving anywhere, yea we were getting our name out there a little, but only to a few main people that we associated with.
If you are trying to do music you got to give it your all, know how to take positive and negative criticism, and turn into the best for you and do better to show them that you heard what they said and put it to use. So I bounced back on 23s and went solo and thought about what Juelz wanted, where I wanted to go with this music. And like I said before, I’ve been doing great ever since.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
I would say from personal experience be careful of people posting stuff like perform at certain venues and they rip you off of what you should of gotten paid or if you are paying to perform. Also, how you put yourself out there, the way you are selling yourself. Make sure that your music is your own, if it’s not a remix that you are doing and that you get some legal standpoint.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
I would just say go hard! That’s the only thing I know. Believe in yourself, so others can believe in you too. Also, make sure you promote yourself heavy, put your all into your music, that’s your craft, your talent, and don’t play with it because no one will take you seriously. Also, you should make sure that you sign yourself up for BMI. And last, just good luck to all artists and hopefully we could collab one day!
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
One of my favorite ways to promote myself and my music is on the social networks. I mean, that’s where everyone is at so I wanna grab their attention and make my music speak to them. But I also like promoting when I go out when big events come to Miami because you have people that come down from different cities and get their vibe on my music.
Where can people visit you?
You can visit me in Miami (lol), naw, but you can check my music and any updates about me on:
