Artist: Cris Cray
New Release: Spiritual
Are you living your life with peace, positivity, and love?
Cris Cray, Spiritual was written in remembrance to Lil’ Peep, xxxtentacion, and all the youth who passed away too young. Cris Cray wants us all to remember to embrace your life with all the positivity you should be embracing each day.
I love what I do but the music business is..
watered down and flooded with trah music. Today’s hiphop is still too focused on the promotion of drugs and violence. when what we really need is now people promoting peace and togetherness. Where is the peace, positivity, and love at?
Maybe if we try, we can be the kind of change we want to see in this world.
Being an Independent musician is…
harder than you think because people aren’t as willing to support or make the connections with the artist. Social media is great but it’s difficult for a young artist to get a good message out. I rap about the positive and how it can make a difference like it used to be back in the day. I cherish those values and I’m always hopeful that if I keep telling my story my way, the message will reach the right people.
Why I Love To Create Music:
I love to create music for happiness and the performances. The joy I get seeing my fans connect to my music while I perform is unmatched by anything else. It’s a blessing.
Band Name: Nytro-T
Person Interviewing: Terry Montgomery Jr
Song name: The Fight Is Still In Me
Music Genre:: HipHop
From Mableton, GA which is a small city inside of Cobb County Georgia.
This song is about…
Encountering troubling situations countless times over yet still staying determined to not give up. The willingness to continue the fight is the songs main theme driven from intense personal struggles in my life.
I’ve always pushed through the hurt and agonizing pain, not giving up on this precious life. Recognizing that because you are choosing to overcome what you are dealing with, the person looking to you is being encouraged to do the same. A nice quotation that I really liked “Quitting is not an option,” I read that some where on Instagram. (Jax)
My music is…
Motivation: When people hear a song of mine, they become motivated. I’m not just saying this, I’ve been told this several times. I asked them why? And they tell me it’s something about your music that touches my soul.
it helps me to relief and express how I am feeling. Throughout my day I am constantly creating music it calms down my spirit.
My music is my escape route from reality of life.
This release represents me not going back to the way I once were with creating music. I would make several songs but after a few months or weeks I would lose momentum, motivation. I felt no matter what tried my music was not going anywhere. So with this release I am breaking down the wall that was built up around me when it came to music.
You cannot allow anything to deter you away from what you want to achieve. Keep going many hard roads will soon lead to smooth paved roads of success.
The music business is
an aggressive adventure but so rewarding. Being a musician today: allow so many creative minds to be heard and more opportunities.
I love creating music because I am able to express and let go of all emotions, for several hours or less I am free.
Artist: Fer Rivero
New Release: Ain’t Nobody Go Home
Genre: Pop, Indie Pop
My music was becoming too commercial, I was creating what I thought people wanted to hear so I decided to come back to my roots and compose from my soul, this song is by far my soul printed in music.
Creating Music is a skill you can improve, it can be a talent you are born with, and one of the hardest paths to choose, but remember is your love for music what makes people listen to another one of your songs, make them feel how you felt creating it and success will arrive.
Artist: Yolanda Sanders
New Release: New Thing
New Thing is a song about redemption, overcoming obstacles that would have defeated you if you had given up. I wrote New Thing after a tragic event in my life and I believe it can help many people dealing with any kind of adversity.
Music is appropriate for any occasion. It can take you to the highest mountain or the deepest valley. Either way it will take you.
Band Name: In The Stars
Person Interviewing: Daxton Edwards
Song name: Desperados
Music Genre:: Rock
Los Angeles California.
This song is about…
Desperados is about the underdogs of the music industry righteously rising to the top with self respect and appreciation. My music is fun; high energy and stylistically diverse!
This single represents our drive to reawaken raw sounding melodic rock! There are elements to most rock today that are missing! Rawness and distorted melodic guitar are two of them.
Link to play:: https://m.soundcloud.com/inthestarsband/desperados-master
The piece of music advice that forever changed my way of thinking was, “ A song doesn’t have to be complicated to be good!”
The music business is…
like that perfect “friend with benefits”, that you want so badly to turn into a soulmate!
Being a musician today is either really hard or really easy! You’re either appealing to the masses or not!
I love to create music because, to me, it’s one of the greatest forces that can instantly change one’s state no matter what he or she is up against!
Artist: I DON’T TRUST ROBOTS
New Release: Refugee
Genre: Rock - Jazzy
Refugee by I DON’T TRUST ROBOTS is a tail of a refugee migration as told by a weary refugee. He is not one by choice, and he’s not very happy about it. This song explains why.
Can you also include a quote from you about how you feel about any of these things. : The music business : Being a musician today : Why you love to create music: I DON’T TRUST ROBOTS has been fortunate to be part of the Maryland Music Community for many years, participating in many outstanding events promoting originality. we need to continue to support the Arts as much as we can so we can the the very Best that we can be.

The music industry and technology is…
changing all the time and sometimes it’s hard to keep up with. Knowledge is power, learn as much as you can and don’t stop practicing your instrument. My main instrument is my voice, then guitar. There will always be someone different and unique that is not you, but our biggest competition is ourselves. Try not to compare yourself too much. Singing and writing songs is what lifts my spirits! When I sing, I sing for the joy of it and to bring joy to others. I love writing songs that fill up your heart. Nothing makes me happier than music and reaching my fans!

Going through being in love with someone and they kind of just stop and you don’t really understand why. You think things are going good but then all of sudden it’s over.
My music is…
Is all about what I have gone through personally and I try to relay that message where everyone can relate to it. I want my music to be memorable and I want it to connect with the people that hear it.
This song is a commercial release. I want it to represent me as a pop artist.

Genre: Electronic Rock
This is the second track from the album called ‘Sound Machine’. Essentially a dance tune, it has been composed and created in lines with the Album’s name. The feel of these tracks is popular Rock Music tones and playing style along with present day sounds.
The Music Business is ever evolving and being a Musician today is challenging, yet exciting as there are so many different forms and genres of music and ways of presenting them these days. Creating music apart from being liberating, is also very satisfying once it hits the right chords with its listeners. Have always tried making music which is not genre or age specific for a wider listening, and believed in finding new sounds and styles along with the traditional ones which are pleasing to the ear. If it can connect with the listeners, there’s nothing more that one would want.

The Refusers rock rebellion anthem Disobey, bitches and moans for the sake of the people, but does it with classic rock guitar riffs, sharp on-point percussion and bass, tasteful organ backdrops, and, of course, Belkin’s vocal timber—which could be described as some twisted hybrid of Ozzy and Bon Scott.
The blasé pop music status quo should shatter like an ice sculpture blasted by a sledgehammer. Blasting through the establishment’s twisted goals, The Refusers perform songs of musical defiance. The Refusers speak today’s spirit of rage and simmering revolution against the establishment.
