  • Creator to Creators S5 Ep 60 Alli Fitz

    12 APR 2024 · Its seldom that a television show can have as profound an impact on society as Euphoria. The popular HBO series has had a stranglehold on this generation's pop culture by inspiring art, collaborations, and most importantly: music. Alli Fitz’s newest track “When We’re Together” was inspired by the series and helps celebrate love and happiness. An accomplished social media star, Alli Fitz achieved viral success early by singing, streaming and doing voiceover work on various social media platforms. Alli has amassed a loyal following of over 10 million fans across various social media platforms and has began shifting her focus towards music full time. Alli’s newest track, “When We’re Together,” is a celebration of her newfound love after being single for an extended period of time. “I have been single for the longest time, and people know one of my relatable posts is about being single, and people can relate to that,” Alli said. “Recently, I got a boyfriend, which is really exciting. I finally decided to write a song about that. Most of my songs are girl-empowering, you don’t need a man and can do it on your own. Now I wanted to switch it up a bit because I got a man, and it is about the feelings I have when I’m with him when we’re together.” She added, “I say that I promise that I’m worth the wait because I’m the girl that you need. It’s really a song for someone who you love.”The process of making a music video was an enjoyable one for her, as Alli had a major say in its creation since she is still independent. A newfound creative control and independence has been spearheaded by her manager, Adrian “Auidi” Vazquez. Auidi is the COO/CFO of NOGXNRE, a decentralized record label based in Los Angeles, CA. Having been featured in publications like Billboard Latino, Auidi’s experience in the Judaic industry has proved invaluable to Alli Fitz’s budding music career. She had the autonomy to choose the director and videographer and was free to do her own makeup and styling.“I got to choose all this and even where the location was,” Alli Fitz said. “It was pretty cool being the boss and the person in front of the camera.” Alli explained that back in the days of MySpace, she would watch other YouTubers singing cover tunes, which inspired her to do the same and turn it into a real career. This newfound career goal happened in 2008 while she lived in Ohio. Alli would post videos of herself in her bedroom singing covers and a spell of popular songs, which garnered her millions of views. She admitted she was a little scared that she wouldn’t get the positive feedback she wanted, but in the end, her success took off quicker than she could have ever expected. “When people started sending me song requests, I was like, ‘Oh my God, they do actually like my voice?’” Alli said. “I started doing musicals in high school, where we just had the town come in. Now it’s like people from all over the world are like, ‘We love your music.’ It’s crazy. I have a cover with Chad Perez that is going viral in China.” She attended Wright State University for musical theater, where she polished up her singing skills. After graduating, Fitz moved to Los Angeles after creating a Vine account that got her more than five million followers and a billion video views. “My dog ended up play-biting me, and everyone thought it was funny. I gained millions of followers from Vine,” she said. “They invited me to the Macy’s Parade, and I got tons of exposure. That’s what got me to LA because all the other Viners were like, ‘Hey Alli, you need to move out here.” Alli said it was such a wild and unexpected feeling to get that kind of acknowledgment. She simply posted an entertaining video, and suddenly people from all over the world were checkingout what she was up to. It was an incredible experience for her, and she has met and collaborated with some of her favorite artists along the way. Alli eventually moved on to TikTok, where she now has seven million followers. For the past several years, she has been focused on releasing her music for the world. “I released my first single, “Fill the Void,” in 2017, and it was pretty cool,” Alli said. “But I’ve been trying to get more music out and get my name bigger in the music industry instead of just through social media. I’m pretty well known there, but I want to be in the music world, too.” Alli wants her fans to know that her music is real and comes directly from her life and what she believes in. While her lyrics tend to come from her life experiences, Alli is inspired by listening to her favorite artists. She explained that before she goes on stage, she tends to get nervous, so she’ll watch those artists to see what they do beforehand.She also tries to look at the way they write their material. Alli pointed out that musicians likeAriana Grande write whatever they want these days, and this inspires her. “It’s not about what sells,” Alli said. “She writes what she feels, and I love that. So I have starteddoing that too, and it has been so much fun since then.” Alli wants to get her music out to the masses to listen to. While she has been able to do this fairly easily through the internet, she also wants people to see what she’s got in person. “I want to go on tour,” she said. “That’s my number one thing. I want to be able to sing my songs and have people sing them back. I want choreographed dance numbers and costumes—all of that. I want it all. I want to be able to show my music to the world.” The “When We’re Together” music video is available on March 11. Be sure to check this and the rest of Alli Fitz’s material on all platforms. Lastly, Alli extends a very special thanks to everyone who participated in this project: JV, RandallDidIt, Chazz, Darius Dantzler, Adrian “Auidi” Vazquez, and the entire FilmHead Professionals crew.

  • Creator to Creators S5 Ep 59 Hammaz

    11 APR 2024 · - Delaware based rapper Hammaz has been surrounded by music through friends and family hiswhole life, and most recently he created the album AlphaMale 4: Magnum Opus, which includes he single “Shitz” that will reel in listeners as it is catchy and pops. - “This one is more drill,” Hammaz said of “Shitz” which features MusicByDre. “There’s no playingaround. I’m back and letting you know. I want all the shitz, I want all the smoke. I’m coming for it.I’m there for it.” AlphaMale 4: Magnum Opus wasn’t just whipped together, as Hammaz took his time and selected everything for a reason. Instead of just writing freely, he wrote about specific events and people, and topics that were going on in his life. “I was able to tap deep into a certain bag, and to be able to put it all together in one project, is like one of the greatest art forms I’ve created over the bodies of works that I did,” Hammaz explained. “I have a personal relationship with PeeWee Kirkland, so I had a couple of sit downs with him. One of the songs on there talks about him and his life.” There are 12 total tracks on the album that also includes “Boss Talk 2,” “End of the Road,” and a song called “Becky, Karen, Susan,” which he said is a little story about three of his favorite teachers. The song “Again,” is one that shows off his range and has GRAMMY written all over it, Hammaz said. “I am really proud of the artistic ability for me to jump from different topics and different subjects, and stay in that pocket,” he said. Hammaz has a versatile style of music, saying that he performs hip-hop most of the time, and is also a great storyteller. “I’m good in each department,” Hammaz. “Some people bounce from topic to topic, but struggle in different areas like storytelling, club songs, or drill music. I think I have an A plus in all those departments. Every day ain’t the same. Every story ain’t the same. Different things happen.” Hammaz was born in Jamaica, but he moved to Delaware when he was eight years old where he lived near the Southbridge projects. He grew up with hardship in his life, but it didn’t discourage him, as it actually motivated him to share his life stories. He knows he’s not the only person who has had hard times, and he hopes his talent can have a major impact on listeners who can commiserate.

  • Creator to Creators S5 Ep 56 PRZNT

    22 MAR 2024 · Bio In an industry oversaturdsted with artists looking to mimic others’ successes and aounds, it’s always refreshing to hear consistency and growth and that’s what we got from PRZNT’a debut album Night of the Rose. Anchored by two singles “Or Nah” and “Like Pablo,” PRZNT has already smashed his day one streaming record by amassing over 120,000 streams on its debut release. PRZNT is no stranger to massive streaming numbers with more than 120 million streams across platforms, the Cuban-born artist is gaining worldwide recognition with tracks including “Laudy Daudy.” His debut album, Night of the Rose, is out now. Hailing from Cuba, PRZNT cites Latin music as a heavy influence on his style. “My first love was Michael Jackson— I was heavy on his music when I was younger until I discovered Kid Cudi and Lil Wayne,” he shares. PRZNT’s introduction to music making began in high school, when he found his friends getting into it and developed his own passion and sound. “Around that time, I used to skip school and create different things until I eventually got decent enough to make music,” adds the artist. Soon after, he met his first manager, who helped elevate his music onto streaming platforms where he found a real fanbase. “From there, everything kept flowing, and we kept going up.” PRZNT eventually caught the attention of NOGXNRE, a decentralized music label pioneering transparency in the music industry. After some negotiations, the two parties signed their first record deal helping catapult PRZNT into a new level of artistry. The artist’s moniker was originally “Present1k,” a reference to being present in the moment and “not worrying about the future or past.” As he continued to grow as an artist, PRZNT shifted to the current stage name, keeping its meaning intact. “It’s about staying true to the moment,” shares the artist. Night of the Rose, PRZNT’s debut album, was recently released on March 1. “It’s basically a compilation of the sound I’ve been polishing and perfecting for years,” shares the artist. “This project is completely me. It defines me as an artist and person. It’s a gift from me to the world.” With stark and innovative production from NOGXNRE staples Adrian Chafer and Griffin “Everlyte” Jarosinski, Night of the Rose delivers a consistent holistic sound that captures the vibe that we’ve all come to know and love from PRZNT. Additional vocals from longtime collaborator 2Scratch on the catchy Jersey-club inspired track “Video” round out a robust body of art unlike anything we’ve heard from PRZNT before. “Or Nah,” the album’s highlighted single, features the familiar sound his early fans fell in love with: somber melodies on a bed of moody guitars. “It’s for my fans who showed me support from the beginning,” adds PRZNT. The song is equal parts nostalgic, vibrant, and chill. Instead of focusing on sending a message, PRZNT wants listeners to have fun with “Or Nah.” “I want them to enjoy themselves and have a great time partying with friends, chilling in the car with it, and turning up to the song at my concerts. It’s more of an experience than a meaning,” explains the artist. “It was a typical writing day for me,” tells PRZNT of the song’s creation. “I came up with the melody for the song, chose the vibe to go for. In more broad terms, it says, ‘are you gonna do something or not going to do it?’ ‘Are you down, or are you not down?’ That’s the whole meaning of the song. It can be about a girl, a moment, or an experience. We started with the full production before adding lyrics and melody, then came up with the ideas for the hooks and verses.” In addition to “Or Nah,” PRZNT invites listeners should check out the second single “Like Pablo,” one of PRZNT’s favorite songs on the album. “The album is an offering from me to the world about who I am as an artist. It’s what I’ve learned from being an independent artist to having an independent label behind me. I’m staying true to myself no matter what I experience. I put it out there for people to enjoy it.”Make sure to stay connected to PRZNT on all platforms for new music, videos, and social posts and listen to Night of the Rose on all streaming platforms .

  • Creator to Creators S5 Ep 55 Jimmy McGee

    14 MAR 2024 · Spotify:   https://youtube//   Facebook:   Instagram: Born and raised in Ohio, Jimmy grew up on rhythm and blues and a household of music. His passion for song began as a young churchgoer listening to the vibrant gospel that echoed off church walls. At age 11, Jimmy picked up the guitar and mastered a new skill. Never finding joy in his schooling, Jimmy McGee turned to music for guidance. At 14, he joined fellow R&B enthusiasts and performed at local venues. “I am a soul music survivor,” tells Jimmy. From Bobby Womack to Johnny “Guitar” Watson, Jimmy immersed himself in all-things soul from an early age. Decades later, Jimmy McGee brings his never-ending passion for music to the stage with a refined sound. His sound is a smooth blend of R&B, Southern Soul, and Neo-soul, with a spin uniquely his own. “Bottom Line,” Jimmy McGee’s latest single, opens with bluesy tones, drawing in listeners with a smooth guitar riff as the song takes on depth. Velvety vocals emerge, telling Jimmy’s story. “What inspired the song was an experience with obstacles. When a person is gifted with song, there is often envy and stuff that goes along with it—it’s only a matter of time. But I refused to give up,” shares Jimmy McGee. “That’s what inspired it—the rigamarole of being a musician. Standing my ground and being myself.” Jimmy wants listeners to feel encouraged by his song. “I want them to realize that there’s obstacles, but they aren’t the end all be all. People look for a higher power outside, but it’s in ourselves. Self-determination is the key.” Jimmy sings in the key of determination. “Bottom Line” is life’s ballad. “It’s a reminder to never give up—have perseverance.” In fact, all of Jimmy’s songs are about life and life’s lessons. “Life’s a journey, and these songs are about self-determination,” he adds. “You can get help, but it’s you who has to do it.” Writing music usually begins with the music. “Usually, I write to the track. The process involves thinking about life, and the words come along with the music.” For the single and many others, Jimmy let life guide his art. This year, Jimmy McGee is excited to release more music. Listeners can look forward to quarterly releases throughout the year. “I’m ready to get out, sing and perform,” he adds.

  • Creator to Creators S5 Ep 54 SOTLY Shawn

    13 MAR 2024 · Hip-hop artist SOTLY Shawn wants his fans to know two things about him: never expect his sound to stay the same, and listening to his music is like getting a “home cooked meal.”  “You might have some fast food, and that’s always good,” he said. “But there’s nothing like being in your mother’s or grandma’s house and getting that home cooked meal. That’s what I feel like I am. You know that’s what you’re getting when you listen to SOTLY Shawn.” The Brooklyn based rapper has has just released a new single called “Standin’” off his EP titled Day by Day. “The message in the song is that no matter what, he’s still standing,” he said. “No matter what, he’s going to the top, he’s going to still stand. Whatever happens- we try to ignore the negativity, push the positivity, and that’s what we’re going with.” “Standin’” is the outro track on the five song EP, which he said was created at a fairly chaotic time. There was stress about work and about finishing the project he was working on, and much of this is reflected in the songs.  The first track titled “Still” coincides with “Standin’” in a way that they are bookends to the project. The second song, “No Doubt” reflects on the experiences his mom had when working a 9-5 job. This is followed by “The Soul” and “Tonight.” “All throughout that EP, the idea behind it is pushing through and not becoming so one-track minded,” he said. “With all the problems in your 9-5, or all the problems in your life, you have to look at everything in a big picture kind of way.” SOTLY stands for “someone out there loves you,” and this is a mantra that he lives by and promotes. “That’s like my whole message at the end of the day,” he said. “No matter what you’re going through…if you’re working a job that sucks or if you’re going through doubt, depression, uncertainty, anything, just know it's all a part of the process. Somebody out there cares about you. Make the decision to never give up on yourself and finding those answers, because someone out there loves you. They want to see you win. Even if it's just me, I want to see you win.” He added, “Les Brown said once that your struggle will be the blueprint to someone’s survival.” SOTLY Shawn pulls his inspiration from his own life, as well as aspects that his friends and those close to him have gone through. He’ll often put himself in other peoples’ shoes to get different perspectives about what is wrong and what is right. “I try to dig from those personal experiences, but also try to incorporate as many sides of it that I possibly can,” he said. “It’s never going to be just black and white, so this gives me a plethora of things to pull from when looking at it from different perspectives.”

  • Creator to Creators S5 Ep 53 Sophia Mengrosso

    13 MAR 2024 · Sophia Mengrosso is a classically trained opera singer with a wide vocal range that is ever apparent on her newest single “Unforgiven,” scheduled to be released on February 24.  Mengrosso has a hauntingly beautiful, and unique, voice that fits right in with the power of her lyrics and the heavy sound that it complements. This track is about putting the time and work into letting go of someone she loved. It focuses on her efforts to move on and move forward with her life, despite the scars and the pain that it has brought. “I just wanted to let go of a person, and let go of the memories,” said Mengrosso. “I’ve accepted the fact that I can’t blame someone for what happened in the past. Instead of me carrying that weight on me, I just want to forgive the person and move on.” Mengrosso wrote this song years ago, but came back to it about a year back when she rediscovered it in a different way. She said that whenever she has a significant personal experience, she will incorporate it into her material because it is helpful to handle what life throws at her. Writing this track was a cathartic experience for Mengrosso. “When I go through something, I try to put it into my music because this is what gives me a drive to go through stuff,” she said. “It’s so personal. It is about finding strength and finding something that will drive you to achieve what you want. You can find strength in your weaknesses, like pulling out the light from darkness.” “Unforgiven” is part of a 12 song album that Mengrosso eyes a release for the end of April, and it will also include a recently released single titled “Under.” She is still going through the naming process for the record, and related it to naming a baby because of how much the work means to her. Life experiences are what inspires her work, and she is taking the time to choose the proper name. Mengrosso has a background in musical education, and is a composer who has been writing music for many years, as well. She started as a classical singer and developed an interest in rock and metal as she grew up. Now she is writing and producing her own music, and she said she couldn’t be happier about her path. She started her musical journey by playing piano and harp, and then began taking voice classes as a child. Mengrosso writes all her music on the piano, and she said this has helped her in developing her style. She is influenced by opera singers like Maria Callas, Cecilia Bartoli and Nellie Melba, but also listens to plenty of music outside of the classical world. Her wide range of musical taste has helped shape here as a musician.
