We sat down for an interview with up and coming artist Avis. Here's how it all went down!
Interviewer: What first got you into music?
Avis: I have always loved music. I’m always listening to it and I can’t imagine life without it. I started making music probably like one and half years ago, just thought I would try it for fun and I love it.
Interviewer: Who or what inspired you to make music?
Avis: I think the best music inspiration comes from things happening in your everyday life. Good music comes from your emotion, no matter what emotion that is. My music inspiration would include J Cole, A Boogie, Tory Lanez, Post Malone, and Tech n9ne.
Interviewer: What is your creative process like?
Avis: My creative process is nothing special. I just write everyday. My goal being writing a verse everyday, eventually my lyric writing ability will improve no matter what.
Interviewer: Has your musical journey had a deliberate direction?
Avis: It for sure has, it’s gone from just making random songs to trying to pinpoint my music toy emotion. To try and show a side of myself to people that can’t be said with just words. I’m still trying to find my sound but I am getting close.
Interviewer: What is your biggest musical challenge?
Avis: I think my biggest challenge musically is not knowing what type of music I want to make. I’m all over the place, wanting to try and experiment. They say it’s harder to gain traction switching your sound, but that’s a chance I’m willing to take.
Interviewer: What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?
Avis: Right now I’m not at the point where I’m doing music full time but I am hoping to get there. I know I can if I keep the grind going.
Interviewer: What is the best advice you’ve been given?
Avis: Somewhere from an author I heard the quote, in life you must jump off the cliff and build your wings on the way down. I’m sure a lot of people I know clown on me and my music but it doesn’t matter. I’m building my wings and I can’t wait to fly.
Avis: I would tell my younger self to not be so hard on myself. I have anxiety and depression so that’s hard but I don’t really think I would have listened to myself.
Interviewer: What’s next for you?
Avis: What’s next for me? I’m gonna grind, I’m gonna improve and my numbers will catch up with that. I guarantee. Even if they don’t I’m just doing what I love, some people already enjoy music and that’s enough for me. As far as future releases go I try to release music every 2 weeks to a month. Streaming on all platforms. If anybody reads this and connects to my sound, I got love for you. Music is the universal language
