We caught up with Ben Reilly to talk about his music. At Indiy we champion musicians.
Let's get to it...
Being able to connect with other artists & showing love to their music as well.
It's a mess! I am always working on something. I'm my own engineer.
I record my songs using a blue snowball microphone & edit all of my songs in audacity.
Usually I get mastering done by a buddy of mine, on the rare occasion I'll work with other engineers, but if I can't find someone else, I usually master my own songs as well.
I enjoy recording & promotion, however, it's the production part that's a pain for me and although I look forward to performing live more often, I have social anxiety, which also makes that a pain for me.
"The perfect blend of lyrical hip-hop & trap/drill music."
I always plan my music releases and try to find a strategy to market it.
I'm releasing my song "Potion" Ft. KiddHillz & Luke XI on March 5.
Later this year, I'm dropping my first mixtape, which will feature guest appearances from Tory Lanez & Dave East.
Actually, yes! I am filming a music video for "Your Way", the lead single from my mixtape.
And I also have a music video finished for a song called "The Shadow", another single off the project.
In the next few months I'm also dropping songs with Kurupt & KXNG Crooked.
I have more collaborations with Stevie Stone on the way, as well as my first (of many) collaborations with Lydia Caesar.
Not just by listening to songs by others, but I am inspired pretty much by watching or reading anything that involves creativity.
I can't watch an episode of an anime without wanting to pause the episode to go make another song.
This is a tough decision! I usually prefer listening to singles!
My homie, King Cobra & I, usually handle the promo and manage our social media.
We have our homie 99 Productions as a photographer, video director, editor and graphic designer.
