For fans who have never heard your music, can you pick three words to describe it?! If I were to choose three words. I would choose: positive, inspirational, and uplifting. A great writer from the blog Dancing About Architecture described my music as "Positive Pop," which I think has a nice ring to it. Shout-out to Dave Franklin for writing such an awesome review. What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, or something else? That's a great question! I would have to go with songwriting. The reason why is because I feel that's the starting point. It starts with how I'm feeling. Once I'm able to gather my thoughts together, I begin to write them down. After I write them down, I begin to play notes on my keyboard, and then the rest.
Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you? When I'm in the studio, I feel like I am home. I feel like it is where I was meant to be. I remember when I walked in there for the first time, I felt like a kid in the candy store. I could not get over the fact so much music can be created in just one room. Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing? I enjoy reading and listening to motivational videos. Personal development is something that I take very seriously. I believe that we should all make an effort to spend time with ourselves and grow our minds. Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why? I admire anyone who has the effort to pursue music because it is not an easy road. I respect anyone decides to take a leap of faith and invest in themselves. I am the type of person who supports anyone who follows their dreams. I am an advocate for dream chasers. Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it? "Ahmad Is My Name" is a song that I feel is the most emotional to me. That song is about me re-introducing myself to the world. I call it an emotional song because of the message I'm trying to deliver. In the song, I talk about how I plan on using my God-given gift to help make a difference. Later in the song, I say that we all need to unify to make the world a better place. In other words, I'm here to make a difference. However, in order for me to make a difference, I need help from all of you.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year? This year I am focusing on brand-building and promoting the music I currently have. I'm currently researching website building and merchandise. I don't plan on recording anything new until next year.
