Introduce yourself to our readers, let them know your name and where you’re from
My name is Edison and I am an R&B and Hip Hop artist. I am originally from Northern California and I currently reside in Los Angeles, California. I have been creating music ever since I was a little kid and it has been something that I have been pursuing and creating my whole life and I look to share it with you and everyone else in the world.
Why did you start to do music?
It was something that just felt amazing. Music does something to you that makes everything worthwhile. It brings out the smile and energy that you need to get through your day, to get by sad moments, to get through tough times, and is able to bring a party to life. I did music because it is a part of who I am. I love being a part of the atmosphere that music has to offer and the energy that it brings to me.
When did you know that it was actually going to be your career?
I was about 6 years old when I realized that it was going to be my career. I bought my first ever CD at that age and that is also when I first got on stage and performed in front of crowd.
If you could get advice from any artist in the industry, who would it be and why?
Usher. He was the one that inspired me to do music so I would do anything to work with my inspiration and ask him as many questions as I can about the music industry. Working with your inspiration is always a goal so one of these days I hope I get the chance to work with him and learn from him.
What or who influences your music?
When it comes to creating music, I usually get my influence from personal experience or imagination. Those are probably the two main ingredients to songwriting. I have a lot of musical influences that range from Usher, to Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Michael Jackson, Ginuwine, Boyz II Men, Beyonce, Whitney Houston, Ne-Yo, New Edition, B2K, Bryson Tiller, and so many more. There are a lot of other artists’ that have become huge influences on my music and who I am as an artist.
Has anyone helped you or guided you in getting your foot in the industry?
Absolutely. Having UneekInt on my music team as my manager has been great. He’s been giving me the blueprint on what to look for and what not to look for. He’s taught me what executives are looking for these days and why it’s important to get more involved with blogs and magazines. He is guiding me throughout this whole process and he has been a tremendous individual to work with.
What differentiates you from other artist?
I always try to mix my main genre to other genres. I always want to mix R&B with Hip Hop, Pop, Jazz, Reggae, and Island Reggae. Experimenting is something that I tend to get involved with when it comes to the creative process of songwriting.
What do you hope to get out of your involvement in the music industry?
I hope to become the best artist I can possibly be when it comes to this industry. I look to learn and become better each day when it comes to my involvement in the music industry. Being able to do music full time would be a dream come true. That is all I can ever ask for.
