We caught up with Champ Angelo to talk about his music.

At Indiy we champion musicians. Let's get to it @Champangelo_iam

What do you enjoy most about being an independent musician?

I love the ability to be as creative as I want to be, without having to ask a label if it’s what the public will accept.

I also love the fact that I control all the profit and revenue that I accrue on my own terms from the things that I create.

And I don’t have to wait for any kind of schedule because I make my own schedule.

It’s very important to be motivated and determined in your approach, because you can easily get side track with the success of different projects.

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

My studio is amazing ????

I think it’s the #1studio in Dallas, Tx right now!

It’s initially a Rock Band studio, so they have many instruments and audio equipment, heavy metal guitars, drum kit acoustic stuff.

The microphone setup is second to none in my opinion and they handle business in the most professional way

My engineer, David, is my brother from another for real????

Our chemistry and understanding of one another is really a class act to witness.

I always hire this studio for my projects!

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

I believe I like both of them equally.

I have a real passion for my music and my brand...they both give a different feeling!

Recording and production creates the anticipation of brand new vibes.

And performing live and promotion lets you express that vibe!

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

I would want people to tap into whatever mood the songs give them.

Some people have to get over a bad situation, and some people are really enjoying life at the moment...so I think your gonna get diverse answers actually!

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

I plan everything.!

My releases are designed around the brand and vice versa.

Sometimes I bring merchandise with the release...

So I have to get in contact with different business contacts to create the experience.

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

Yes! You can expect my latest E.P to drop in March!

My song 'Top 3' is streaming on all platforms right now.

And “Skybox” drops on February 15, 2021...

I don’t have any gigs planned as of now, but we are in process of creating shirts and shorts for the e.p...and also preparing for a video or two!

Be on the lookout for that as well.

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

I did a video in 2018, from my album 'ChampWorld' - 'F##k*n With A Star'.

I am currently seeking new videographers to do two more videos this year...

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


I have a beatmaker from Europe that goes by SVGAR BEATS and another one from New York that produces heat!

And I’m eager to work with and am always open to new opportunities and meeting new talent!

What inspires your creative process?

My life experiences!...Love!...90’s Hip Hop!

And doing things to make the world a better place to live in.

I also desire to be legendary.

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

Tupac - All Eyez On Me (Double disc album)
When PAC was at the highest height of his career before his tragic demise!
A lot of dope DJs and unforgettable feelings and visuals.

50cent - Get Rich Or Die Tryin'
This is one of those legendary albums!
Every song was hitting and showed how much Fifty dedicated to becoming a force.

Michael Jackson - Thriller
I mean it’s MJ!
...Need I say more?

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?

I want to shout out my mother, Billie Thomas, for making me who I am today.

She pushed me to becoming as great as I am!

The queen has style class wisdom education and entertainment.

Love you Ma.
