Indie Artist Breezy247 Chops It Up With The Dubb Spot
He’s An Indie Artist From The Motor City
Let’s Take A Look At What Indie Artist Breezy247 Has Going On
DSR: Welcome Breezy247! Let the people know where you are from.
Breezy247: Coming str8 out of Detroit, Michigan
DSR: Every indie artist has a stage name, what is the significance of yours?
Breezy247: Well originally my name was Kbreezy which isn’t so original. So I figured I’d do a name change before I made some major moves. I took off the K and kept Breezy and added on the 247 after signifying that I stay true to myself all day every day, no matter what.
DSR: How old were you when you developed an interest in music and wanted to be an indie artist?
Breezy247: 14, I have always had a passion for music but one day I got amped up and picked up a pen. I must admit it was the wackest shit but since that day I’ve been completely devoted towards working and perfecting my craft.
DSR: Have you learned any lessons so far as an indie artist and if so, what are they?
Breezy247: Plenty of lessons become apparent when self-managing myself and a label. To keep it short I can mainly say too many people expect handouts everyone wants to take shortcuts in this game when it takes time to grow. And D.J’s and show promoters make you pay them to perform, I feel like I have the talent to bring down the house but you want ME to pay YOU? Come on I deserve a free slot or sumn’. Also signing the dotted line of a record deal, a few years ago I signed with a local label and was completely shelfed, but I won’t go in to too many details on that, just watch who you invest yourself into. But other than that the list can go on but a part of this game is making mistakes and learning from them to become a better, stronger artist.
DSR: After reading your bio, it seems as if you stayed on a constant grind and was determined to get your music in front of everyone you could. Can you speak on how you managed to handle all of that as an indie artist?
Breezy247: From having such a passion for music since a kid I learned a lot about having an online presence and good marketing, as an artist I truly believe in investing into my work. I got tired of waiting around for studio times and everyone wanting money so I invested in my own studio, programs, marketing etc. From there on I created my own music, mixing, mastering, promotion, music videos, and became self-managed. Sometimes it gets hard managing myself and my label but at the end of the day it’s all for the love of music.
DSR: Being an indie artist sometimes it can be hard trying to attract the type of attention you’d want to from your fan base. How would it feel to be putting out a lot of money and not seeing any of it come back in from failed promoting attempts?
Breezy247: No one likes wasting money lol. But one thing about that is you know where the mistake has happened and this will make you a better artist every time. This game is about taking risks, if you don’t take them then you won’t make it anywhere or might be stuck in one lane, one of my favorite quotes is, “Chances Make Champions.”
DSR: And with perseverance you managed to come through it all! That’s rare for an indie artist. Where can the people find you performing these days?
Breezy247: Usually local spots all around Michigan.
DSR: How would you describe your sound as an indie artist to someone who has never heard it before?
Breezy247: Very unique, I like to switch up styles a lot, I hate sticking to the same sound. I try my best to think outside the box and not be like other artist’s. Just like I stated earlier I must stay true to myself at all times.
DSR: Not every indie artist writes their own songs. Who is in charge of writing your songs? Where do you draw your inspiration from?
Breezy247: Of course all my songs are written by me. And it just depends on what’s going on in my life at the time. Sometimes I try to take everyday living situations and turn them into a poem that people can follow along to and feel on a personal level.
DSR: As an indie artist if you had to put yourself into a genre or create your own, what would it be called?
Breezy247: Gotta be that Trill Music.
DSR: You’re one indie artist that stays on the grind. Are you working on any projects at the moment?
Breezy247: I’m actually working on an album/mixtape called #3rd Chakra, I’m thinking about putting it on LiveMixtapes as well as an album on iTunes in case people love it they can make a purchase to help out. The entire album will be produced by @Kushingham a fellow producer on my label.
DSR: We ask every indie artist, “where can we find your music online and offline?”
Breezy247: I’m everywhere lol mainly people subscribe to my Youtube www.youtube.com/kdeezytbg but, your best bet is just hop on Google and search Breezy247 That’s where my investing comes in you will find me EVERYWHERE! As far as offline I go around putting my cd’s into gas stations or directly into someone’s hands, promotions always a priority of mine.
DSR: If you can change one thing about the music industry being an indie artist what would it be and why?
Breezy247: Mainstream scams, by that I mean the industry is a trickster. They make you believe negative music is all you can do to make it. Everyone’s story sounds the same.. Money, Cars, and Hoes. There’s more to it than that and people should just stick to them being thereself but the industry is who tricks our young people into believing those are goals in life. To sum it up just be yourself, don’t portray an image you AINT!
DSR: What other talents do you possess being an indie artist?
Breezy247: Many talents for my young age of 19. Aside from rapping I run my own label www.2breezyent.com I am a recording engineer, mixer, master, director, promoter, marketer, and graphic designer.
DSR: We ask all the artists we interview, what’s the best piece of advice someone’s ever given to you?
Breezy247: That’s a good one. For this one I’m gonna have to stick with what my mom has implanted in my head since a baby. You can be whatever you want to be if you put your mind to it. I’ve stuck by that line ever since that day at age 14 when I picked up that pen and started writing, and will NEVER lose hope of my goals. #TrillShit
Thanks Breezy247. You’re An Indie Artist Trying To Make A Difference In The Game.
