We caught up with The Joker 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 like the fact that I am in control of my own creativity…

With nobody to tell me how I need to make my music…

Or who I need to sound like!

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

I got a decent studio setup…

A HP DV7 laptop and a Levano desktop, with fruity loops installed on both krk studio monitors.

And a sound proofed microphone booth.

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

I love them both!

I’d have to say that I enjoy performing a little more!

It’s the look on the crowds faces for me!

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

“Spittin’ some real stuff”

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

I plan all of it!

Every now and then I’ll drop a song out of the blue for the fans.

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

I got some new stuff I’m working on.

I’m hoping to finish up this new album and drop some videos for it…

Fingers crossed I get Lil Wyte on one track!

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

I got some ideas for some…

It’s all still on the drawing board!

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

I’ve been talking with Lil Wyte’s manager and working on getting him on a track wit’ me.

What inspires your creative process?

Mostly events that have happened in my life!

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

The Marshall Mathers LP
The Eminem Show
And Encore

I grew up listening to Eminem and those albums give me the creative spark!

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?

It’s all done by me!

Where can we find you on social media?
