We caught up with Stoney Hawk 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 would say the best part of being independent for me is networking,

and learning the music business for yourself!

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

Neumann TLM 103, Logic Software, and a Presonus interface.

I record & engineer my own sound!

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

Recording & production...I love it because it brings out the creativity!

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

"The hardest thing I ever heard"

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

Scheduled releases only!

Gotta figure out appropriate artwork, promo strategy & build up hype!

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

Possibly my first album.

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

Yes ! I’m planning!

And I have videos on YouTube...

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

I’m excited about all collaborations!

New projects...new sounds...new supporters!

What inspires your creative process?

Just being the best honestly!

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?

Deseer visuals! Dope cameraman, dope energy and understands the vision of the artist.

Where can we find you on social media?
