We caught up with FreshYeWest to talk about his music. At Indiy we champion musicians.
Let's get to it...
Having my own control over my creations.
And being able to work at my own pace...for the most part!
Well, I engineer my own music...my setup is very independent.
It’s not the prettiest, but hearing my music, you wouldn’t think it had come out of such a small space lol.
I enjoy the recording and production part of music...I’m more so the creator.
Performing my material isn’t my strongest suit!
"Creative", "free", "confidence" and just "pure fire".
I try to plan my music releases but for the most part, I just work and release to push my music out more.
I’m planning to release more visuals, working with more independent artists and try to get my music into more important hands this years.
Yes! I want to do more visual work now.
I think I have a look that a lot of listeners would love and appreciate.
But I don’t have many videos at the moment.
Just working more with my producer, Pyrex Black, who is from Detroit as well.
But I’m always willing to work with more dope artists!
What’s going on in the world and in my personal life.
Seeing events from others' lives and outcomes, and just keeping my eyes open.
The most simplest things can bring me inspiration by just thinking outside the box.
J Cole - KOD
Cole always been a storyteller and I know that’s not everyone’s favorite from him, but I really enjoyed the creativeness from him.
2pac - All Eyes On Me
He went against the odds and was going at everyone’s neck when he got out of jail. He had a chip on his shoulder.
Frank Ocean - Channel Orange
It’s just a calming project to listen to when I want to escape my own world.
Shout out to my producer and brother, Pyrex Black.
And shout out to my girl, Zo, she does my photography and hair!
