24 Apr IT’S A KNEW ERA
I was blessed to have another interview with the talented KnewEra from New Jersey. This young man who looks and sounds like he is from the pages of GQ is ready to make his mark on the world and I was delighted that he let me pick his brain for this interview. Hope you all enjoy.
FIERCE: HOW ARE YOU DOING THIS EVENING?
KNEWERA: I AM WELL.
FIERCE: FOR THE PEOPLE THAT MAY NOT HAVE HEARD OF YOU CAN YOU EXPLAIN A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF AND WHO KNEWERA IS AND WHAT HE REPRESENTS?
KNEWERA: WELL KNEWERA WAS BORN IN SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA AND I CAME OVER TO THE EAST COAST IN EARLY 1996. I GREW UP ON JAZZ WITH A JAZZ BACKGROUND. I AM A BIG FAN OF JAZZ AND I ALWAYS PUSH FOR FOLLOWING YOUR DREAMS AND REMAIN INDEPENDENT AND AS A ARTIST WE ARE ON A PLATFORM AND THAT IS THE MESSAGE THAT I IMPLY ON ALL MY MUSIC. A LOT OF MY MUSIC YOU WILL HEAR ABOUT MY LIFE AND WHAT I LIKE TO DO WITH MY SPARE TIME AND HOBBIES. ITS JUST MOTIVATING THE PEOPLE AND PUBLIC.
FIERCE: NOW I KNOW YOU HAVE A NEW EP ‘4 LAPS’ OUT RIGHT NOW….CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHAT FEEL WERE YOU GOING WITH THIS EP?
KNEWERA: WELL WITH THE EP I AM A BIG NASCAR FAN SO THEY (THE SONGS) ARE BUILT AROUND NASCAR. THE SKITS ARE FROM TALLADEGA NIGHTS; IT IS A THEME FOR RACING TO PUT YOUR MIND ON THE TRACKS THAT IS MY DRIVE. WITH EVERY PROJECT YOU HAVE TO GET REALLY INVOLVED WITH THE THEME SO WHEN YOU LISTEN STRAIGHT THROUGH, IT PUTS YOU IN MIND OF NASCAR. IT TELLS PEOPLE YOU CAN BE INTO DIFFERENT THINGS AS WELL THAT IS ANOTHER THING THAT I DO LOVE THAT I DO NOT ACTUALLY TALK ABOUT. I CALLED IT LAPS BECAUSE I DO NOT CALL TRACKS TRACKS I CALL THEM LAPS. IT HAS FUNNY SKITS SO YOU CAN LAUGH AND AT THE END IT IS MUSIC AND IT IS A GREAT PROJECT. I RECOMMEND IT TO ALL
