Michael Washington





What is music to you? What does it give you?

To me, music is my way of communicating with those around me. Growing up in an environment and a culture where music plays such a huge part in everyday life made writing, producing, and performing come second nature to me.

What is your music dream?

To understand how my music affects the brains of those who listen, on a deeper level.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

If I could change the world I would have to start with those closest to me.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

2Pac- Mama

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Future Tory Lanez Gunna Lil Baby Drake GoldLink Brent Faiyaz Ella Mai Meek Mill

What inspires you to make music?

The love and happiness that it brings me, gives me the drive and passion to try and recreate that feeling for everyone else that hears my music.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

You don't have to be just like everyone else and do what everyone else is doing to have a good time or pursue your dreams.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Performing in front of a crowd of people who are there to see you brings a very humbling feeling. I feel excited and nervous. There is a "hyped" feeling mixed with a feeling of preparedness

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

I don't think anything needs to be improved in music generally. I think people make music that sounds good to them and if other people like it too then they should make more. I do however think that with that there should be more separation and distinction between genres of music.

What do you think of Drooble?

So far so good

What frustrates you most as a musician?

The fact that there isn't a manual on how to do this.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

As a young aspiring artist who is trying to get my name out into the industry, whenever I see someone doing the same I try to help out any way I can. I try to give advice, help them connect with people that could help them out.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

I believe being able to take criticism is the best quality you can have. Understanding that being in this industry depends on mastering a talent that you possess. And it's not easy and when other people get themselves involved it's not just about you anymore. Also being a self-starter. Being able to get up and get things done without having someone telling you or reminding you. Being able to use your resources and network every opportunity you get.
