We caught up with Trill Treal 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?

Having creative control and being able to watch myself grow as an artist.

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

I try to record wherever there's a studio!

I might be in a professional setting, or I might be in a trailer park!

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

I like both recording and performing.

To create a song then perform it and see how the crowd reacts...

It's a beautiful thing!

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?

It all depends on how I feel about the song or the project.

The last mixtapes I drop were planned releases...

I can release a single at any time!

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

I'm currently looking at two major recording contracts that I'm looking forward to signing!

I didn't know it cost so much for lawyers to look over recording contracts!

And as soon as I get the money up, I'm going to have them reviewed!

I'm also working on releasing 'Trill Sh*t 2'.

As of now, I'm working on two projects at the same time!

The other project is called 'Way Past Due'.

Basically I'm saying that I should have been major by now...

In other words I'm working!

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

Of course!

I want professional quality from known videographers.

I had videos and deleted them when I was unhappy with my career as I had a mental breakdown, but videos are coming!

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

I'm excited about working with Boosie Badazz.

We had a chat about a collab but I don't wanna speak too heavily on it just yet!

What inspires your creative process?

The instrumentals I'm listening to and what I feel like the beat is saying to me...

Plus whatever I'm going through at the time being!

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

Back for the First Time by Ludacris
Nellyville by Nelly
And 400 Degreez by Juvenile

The reason why I chose these albums is that I can play them from beginning to end...

And also because mostly no one knew about these artists before they released those albums.

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?

My late best friend, Marcellus Hollis, deserves a special shout out.

As many times I wanted to give up on my career, he kept pushing me to keep going.

He is amongst the very few people who kept me going...RIP BRO!

Where can we find you on social media?

I went through a mental depression and deleted all my social media due to the fact that I wasn't happy with my music career at the time!

But I'll have media accounts back up and running soon...
