OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

Tell us about yourself and your music?
I was born and raised in New Jersey. I grew up my whole life with an interest in music and I’ve been actively pursuing a career in it since I wrote my first verse at age 10. I didn’t have a lot of friends and I was always getting into problems with people, so the music kept me out of trouble — for the most part.
How would you describe your sound?
My sound is mainly influenced by hip-hop, R&B, and alternative rock, since that’s what I mainly listen to. Even though it’s obviously hip-hop, I wouldn’t really label it as anything that’s out right now; I call it “joatwave,” because ain’t nobody out making this kind of music but me, the JOAT.
Talk about the experience making your single?
Most music I release is created in the house, that’s where I’m most comfortable creating. Teyshon sent me the beat for “KIN” about a month before, then I sat down and recorded some drafts to it once I had an idea of what I wanted to do. Since Teyshon lives across the country, we can’t really share ideas as well as we’d like, but we went back and forth over the phone for a bit exchanging ideas and critiques on the track. After that, we fleshed it out and released it for the world to see.
What are you currently working on? Any new projects? Shows?
I’m currently working on a project executive-produced by me and Teyshon. Originally, it was going to be an EP produced entirely by me and him, but now it’s looking like a full-length album with some coproduction from some really talented artists I know. It’s coming together real nice as of now so we’re looking at a late-2019 / early 2020 release date if things go according to plan.
What has been your biggest highlight in your music career this far?
The biggest highlight of my music career so far has definitely been meeting Tim and Barry. I did an interview and a beat challenge with them while they were out in Newark. They’re really cool people, and I’m definitely looking forward to linking with them again (Thanks, Nadus).
Name your ideal collaboration: mainstream or independent artist(s)?
And ideal collaboration would be me, Lule, Che Ecru, James Fauntleroy, Tory Lanez & Eli Sostre providing vocals, with me, Gravez, Rascal, Wondagurl, Pi’erre Bourne & Mike Dean handling production. Would definitely be an opus.
Name something random that people do not know about you?
People don’t seem to know I’m a real ginger — I didn’t dye my hair this color, I’m a natural redhead.
What’s one thing you have learned or discovered while being in the indie music scene/industry?
The most important thing I’ve learned is connections and relationships are everything. You can’t get it all done by yourself, and chances are you know someone (or know someone who knows someone) who can help you get closer to your objective.
What can we expect from you in the future?
Besides the album, nothing else is set in motion so it’s best not to spoil it. Just know I have big things coming.
