Interview by Jacqueline Jax host of A.V.A Live Radio
Band Name: Juakeen Anomaly
Song name: Sea Foam (Prod. by Serv One)
Music Genre: Rap & Hip Hop
My song ‘Sea Foam’ is about the activities I encounter on a daily basis, as well as some realizations about my life as I experience them first hand. The experiences I encounter helps me to realize a sense of self empowerment, by learning what life is really worth through what I see and what I experience everyday.
My music is more than just some run of the mill cliché term like… “It’s an extension of myself”. My music is deeper than that, it has life, personality, true emotion and on occasion some elements of fun.
How does this reflect your current direction?
I am currently focusing my music career around exposure. It’s about giving more to the people and to my fans – more content, more music, more appearances and more of myself. I want to see the people, talk to the people, shake hands with the people and get to know the people.
I think this release really represents the current direction I’m heading with my music career.
Creating your music…
I create my music everywhere I go. Whether it’s an idea that just popped up in my head, or a song I thought of while I was out running errands. I’m always creating new ideas all day and the same goes for writing music. I will usually pick the instrumental right on the spot and start writing a song at the same time. I will usually finish the writing, recording and mixing of the song all in the same session that same day. I love to collaborate with any and all music artists but it’s rare and only for the simple fact that there is a scarcity of professional musicians in this business that are truly about this life and business.
I stay focused and balance creating music with life by simply transposing my music life into my daily life. By combining the two, it allows me to live a life completely surrounded by music and this is what drives me to stay focused and keep working towards success in music. Only if there is a 9-5 job involved does it get a little tricky. Being able to juggle a full time job, whether it’s music related or not, is quite a daunting task.
If this is the life you want to live, you better start loving the idea of only 35 hours of sleep a week, max.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given…
Successful people plan on how to win, unsuccessful people plan on how not to lose. This advise that I received completely changed the way I think, not only about music but about how I live my life in general.
At the moment I live in Twin Falls, Idaho. The music scene for Rap & Hip Hop here in Twin Falls is basically non existent. Rap & hip hop is not greeted with open arms, open minds or open hearts here. But I will be the one who changes that. Now drive two hours north and the music scene changes drastically for the better.
