We caught up with Bakyawd to talk about his music. At Indiy we champion musicians.
Control of my own music and style.
It looks like whatever the engineer has. Yes.
All of the above
Nirvana – Nevermind…inspired me to combine sounds.
OutKast – Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik…This album inspired me to think about what and how I say words.
Jay-Z – Reasonable Doubt…inspired me to learn the business and to use what I have.
The freedom to create whatever crazy things I want to!
My studio is very simple, an IMac, A Shure SM7B, IRig midi keys, a guitar, a bass, a ukulele, and an attitude. As far as an engineer…I only trust my homie D-SIK.
Production is amazing and I love it but my favorite part of being a musician is performing for people.
My latest project is a love letter to my wife and daughter.
I like to plan my music releases months in advance to keep myself accountable to work hard and stay productive.
In the next six months, you can find me at open mics and small venues all around the south Florida area.
As for future releases, I am planning something for next August.
I don’t have plans for any more music videos at the moment but I do have videos for my songs Lost Boi and This Quarantine which can be found on my YouTube page at Manner Music Productions.
I do have a few collaborators that I’m working with right now on songs but, I can’t tell you who just yet.
Keep an eye on my Instagram @not_Manner to find out when I do say.
I honestly get inspired by so many things but the most prominent is my personal experiences whether it be with a relationship, gig, or just life stories.
In no particular order…the Marshall Mathers LP2 by Eminem, 2045 Deluxe by Parris Chariz, and Vessel by Twenty One Pilots simply because they all tell stories so well and got me through different points in my life.
Shout out to Isaiah Jones, Rascal Trax, Heart Beat Muzik, & Yawdcutz.
