We had the good fortune of connecting with Aaronic Dorsey and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Aaronic, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking.
Without taking real risks you’ll never get to the point of receiving real rewards. One of the biggest risks that changed my life as an artists was slowing everything down and going to school to learn more about my craft. It was something I knew I wanted to do but when you see your brand building traffic its hard to step away and requires to zoom out and see the bigger picture. To this day I thank God I made the decision. When I got out of school it felt like I was starting from scratch but I can honestly say Ive seen my artistry grow in ways I could have never imagined.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I always approach music from an approach of wanting to give a listener raw art well done. Its raw because it’s apart of me and its honest in where I am in my journey of life along with past experiences. Well done because Im always looking to execute it in the best way possible. One of the biggest challenges is finding your voice in the midst of being inspired by so many different voices over time. I used to think finding myself was blocking out al recollections of who has inspired but as I’ve gotten older Ive realized my mix of inspirations is what makes my voice unique.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
As far as restaurants go Upbeet is at the top of my list. We can also hit Edgewood Pizza. I have yet to make it to Slutty Vegan but Ive heard enough good things to make it place to go while someone is in town. I feel if someone has never been to Atlanta Im automatically obligated to take them to either the aquarium or the Coca Cola Factory. Edgewood, Little Five Points and Piedmont Park are places worth exploring also. Depending on the time of year we gotta go to an Atlanta United game especially since thats the best sports team we have to offer and we rep them proudly.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
It would be criminal for me not to shout out Brian Lane, Korin Lane, Michael Owens, Toya Exnicious, and Alyssa Worrell. These five individuals played major roles in challenging me and giving me the platform to further cultivate what was already inside of me. I literally cant mention one of them without mentioning all of them.
