We caught up with Ar5on to talk about his music. At Indiy we champion musicians.

Let's get to it...

What do you enjoy most about being an independent musician?

I like the fact that I'm doing everything myself and building from the ground up

If we were to peek over your shoulder, what does your studio look like? What gear do you typically use?

I actually go to one of the dopest studios in Albany, NY...

"Capital mixers", Shout out to Green!...

That's the lead engineer!

Do you enjoy recording and production, or do you like performing live and promotion?

To keep it a buck...I love doing both!

I get to spill my heart out in the booth and I get to interact with fans

How would you want people to describe your latest project in a tweet?


Do you plan your music releases, or do you just finish a song and release it?

I really don't plan any of my releases... but I do sit on a lot of my music because timing is everything

What can we expect from you within the next 6 months? Any releases planned? Future gigs?

Just stay tuned in because I've been recording a lot lately!

And it's all different feels...

Are you planning any videos for your music? Are there any videos we need to know about!?

There will be videos...

I have everything written down...

I'm just looking for a new camera guy!

Are there any collaborations, past or future, that you are excited about?

I have a few collaborations from the past in the tuck

And I have two collaborative projects that are in motion as far as the future

What inspires your creative process?

Life and weed...Lmfao

What are your top three favorite albums of all time & why?

Tha Carter 2, The Blueprint, and The Marshall Mathers LP .... self explanatory lol

Who makes up your existing creative team?
i.e. photographers, video directors, social media managers, paid media specialists, stylists, hair, and makeup…Name someone who you think deserves a special shout-out?


Where can we find you on social media?
