Describe your sound.
I think my sound is based on art and comes from all different forms. I take movies, paintings and try to jumble them into a cohesive sound, and at the same time try not to stay in the same genre. I think music is art, so I try to put everything together all at one time.
Do you play with a band or solo?
I perform solo. I like to try to do different things. Sometimes I bring out my trumpet and I'll do a trumpet solo. I try to show people that I'm musically inclined. I like to show people that I'm behind the music, too. I like to play the keyboard and engage the people and try to do things differently.
Have you played with a band?
I tried playing with a band accompaniment, but what I found people is people don't hear me as much.
Kriss Kross was an earlier one. Puff Daddy. Tupac.
What's your biggest vice?
Good question. Well, I was going to say something, but I'm not going to say that... I don't think I'm envious, but when I hear something that's really good, I wish I had done it! I critique myself hard. I need to become a fan more of others than always comparing myself. I'm way too hard on myself.
What's in your festival survival kit?
I have to have my Mac laptop. That's the first thing I grab. It keeps me so sane. My Blackberry is essential. My iPod – I have a crazy playlist. I have to have it – it zones everything out for me. Oh, and this is random, but Sour Patch Kids.
Who's your musical guilty pleasure?
Soulja Boy. I love him because he just has so much fun. He's a kid and he doesn't overthink it. I love to see someone have fun.Kelly Roseis a contributor from Seed.com. Learn how you can contribute here.
