Unraveled Artist Interview:
Q: Why did you make this song? What does it mean to you?
A: I made this song a few summers back. Writing is one of the only ways that I can remember things exactly as they happen. I knew that what I was going through at the time and where I had been needed to be captured and thrown on a beat. Javier Ochoa produced it, he’s one of the great underground producers. We recorded it at like 4 in the morning, after a few blunt sessions at his studio in the Pasadena Hills. It means a lot, especially the imagery. If you listen, you’re there. You can actually feel the weather.
Q: What do you want listeners to understand from this creation?
A: Capturing moments happens when you least expect it. As people we don’t have the ability to live in the present. Everything happens too quickly to process and exist in the moment. I want people to understand that music is art, there is no defined structure, there are no rules, there are no boundaries.
Q: How can people support you further?
A: If you see me, say hi (FREE HUGS). Don’t only follow me on social media and shit. I mean you can if you want, @theonlyhudson. Give me legit feedback, if something sucks tell me why so that I can do better. If you like something high five me. If i’m performing in your city, come through. Oh and share it with your friends if you like it. Thanks in advance for your support.
Q: What is your ultimate vision for your work?
A: What a question, hahaha. Ummm, probably just for people to have music that serves a purpose. Anyone can rap about blunts and bitches. I want people to hear me and feel what I felt when I was in the process. I want to be an influence for everyone to do better not because they need to, but because they want to. I want to have a record of mine playing in living rooms some random sunday morning, accompanied by open shades with sunshine beaming in, and good times. Music transcends everything, time, generations, racial barriers. I’ll live forever through my art. That’s an amazing feeling.
As a female artist and older sister, I feel like I have an obligation to make music that serves a purpose. People learn through music, trends are set, behaviors are exhibited. I want to make shit that my parents can listen to and feel good about. I respect any female artist out there, trying to do what they love when it comes to music. It’s a tough industry, resilience is key. Persistence is clutch.
Q: Do you consider your music to fall within a genre(s)?
A: From me, to you.
