Today, we sat down with our artist JordanLivinGood for an interview. Here is what he had to say:
1. How has your hometown shaped who you are as a musician today?
The Austin music culture is very different than any other city I lived in. The locals love to support the local artist and everyone is allowed to be themselves.
2. If you could single out one artist or band that has influenced you, who would that be and why?
The artist that influenced me the most I would say is Drake, because he’s not afraid to set out of his comfort zone and make diverse music from pop to hip hop.
3. If you won the lottery tomorrow, what is the first thing you would buy?
If I won the lottery the first thing I would buy is building my fanbase with Facebook ads, since I’m addicted to them.
4. What is your advice to fellow underground musicians in regards to remaining discipline in your craft?
The only advice I can give underground artist that I learned from a OG Austin artist, was to create the music you want to create and not just follow trends to get famous.
5. Do you have any songwriting or recording tips you’d like to share?
The way I go about songwriting is just thinking of visual images in my head to held me tell some type of story with whatever track I’m working on.
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?
Some of my close friends and family support my music, but I tend to stay distant and only surround myself with artist who are trying grind hard like me.
7. If you could open up for one famous artist or band, who would that be and why?
One famous artist I would to open up for is Juicy J, because he’s one of my idols and my flow is kinda branched from his, so I think that we could have the best show together.
8. If you could have a dinner with one musician who is no longer living, who would that be and why?
The artist I would have dinner with is the great Pimp C. The reason why is because I want to become the modern day Pimp C. He was so fly when he was alive.
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 thing that I enjoyed the most is that I can contact my management team anytime I feel I need to. One piece of advice I would give an artist is: don’t rely solely on you’re manager to make you’re dream become true, because some of the tasks might not benefit you.
10. In ten years, where do you see your music career?
In ten years, I see myself being a successful full time artist and also, running my own record label full of great successful artist.
