We caught up with YECR 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?

I enjoy talking to fans!

And making music the most.

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

I don't own a studio!

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

I love taking my time while recording and with the production.

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

I would want them to describe me as a hard working artist who is 16 years old!

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

I usually plan my music releases.

But sometimes when I finish a song I just release it!

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

I plan to release my album 'Tenet' with my friend, Yung Hush.

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

I am not planning any music videos at the moment as of right now

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

I have not collaborated with anyone yet!

What inspires your creative process?

Music, and having the time to make music!

And learning new talents while doing music!

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

My favorite albums are Drip Drown, YXME, and Hush SZN.

I like those because I took my very time on them and they both blew up having over 10 to 15K Views!

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 think Yung Hush, my friend, deserves a shoutout!

Where can we find you on social media?
