Today, we sat down with our artist DIG for an interview. Here is what he had to say:
1. How has your hometown shaped who you are as a musician today?
My hometown has shaped my music in many was the first that stands out to me is pronunciation of some of my words or my accent also Pittsburgh being a blue collar work ethic based background I feel I like to exemplify those characteristics.
2. If you could single out one artist or band that has influenced you, who would that be and why?
Any music I listen to influences me in some way shape or form me being from the era of 2 PAC in his prime I feel he is a very big influence in music with me reason why is it always was more than music it came with some type of message.
3. If you won the lottery tomorrow, what is the first thing you would buy?
If I hit the lottery and depending on for how much my first major purchase would probably be a business to employee my people as well as generate revenue to give back in a big way.
4. What is your advice to fellow underground musicians in regards to remaining discipline in your craft?
My advice to anybody still trying to get a break in music is to stay solid and true to your craft you can always get better so remain humble and stay consistent and never stop loving music.
5. Do you have any songwriting or recording tips you’d like to share?
The way I write is so weird I think lol a thought comes to my head and I attempt to turn it into poetry then write it in a rap format or cadence but as far as tips keep sharpening your craft have fun when putting the words to the paper.
6. How does your family and close friends feel about your music career? Have they always been supportive or have there been issues in the past?
My family and friends support me being happy doing something that is not affecting my foundation in a negative way they laugh at the timing of it all however for the most part the remain fans of me being happy.
7. If you could open up for one famous artist or band, who would that be and why?
If I could open up for anybody, it would honestly be any artist that dug my music and felt the platform I’m tryna build would be worthy to open up and do the show justice.
8. If you could have a dinner with one musician who is no longer living, who would that be and why?
If I could have a dinner with any deceased musician it would be PAC to thank him for his contribution to shaping the 90’s.
9. In your time with LiquidSound Records, what is the number one thing you have enjoyed the most? Also, what is your advice to those artists who would be interested in joining the roster in the future?
The number one thing I enjoy about LiquidSound Records is the feeling I’m not doing everything by myself and the direction they take creates a more professional look as an underground artist my advice is do all you can and weigh your own options and if management is the avenue you wanna take then definitely give LiquidSound Records a look.
10. In ten years, where do you see your music career?
In ten years, if I’m still alive making music, I just hope a few more people know the words to some of my songs I have no expectations doing it for the love in hopes to provide for my family doing something I love doing.
