We caught up with Brandon Traylor aka Cloud Capri 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?

The streets get I have reputation that is legitimately from my city.

For one I have government copyright independence and the competition is so much greater day to day.

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

M-audio interface

Reaper audio

Spatial sound in JBL monitors

And a MPC Renaissance

...And more goodies!

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


What makes a good song in your opinion?

Harmony and melody...

I’m key of C!

How do you know that you want to work with an artist or group / band?

(The weed let you know) No! Seriously their influences and it’s soulful if it has a seventy’s soul vibe.

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

I let my label have complete control!

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

Music videos and project placements

Are there any collaborations past or future that you are excited about, producers, artists, instrumentalists or songwriters?

Big Rube from the Dungeon Family

What inspires your creative process?


And the ladies that walk the streets!

...Bartenders have influence too!

What are your top three favorite albums of all time? Why those albums?

“The Lost Boy” from Cordae because it’s respected and talks volumes.

“The Off Season” - J. Cole...it explains hip-hop

“A S.W.A.T. Healin’ Ritual” by Dungeon Family and Witchdoctor …the title does no justice to the truth!

Where can we find you on social media?
