We had the good fortune of connecting with Fonzy Reilly and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Fonzy, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I wanted to start a platform where artist can promote their music and music videos. Also create a one-stop shop for artist to get interviews, music videos, and promotion for their music.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I do everything! Literally! Im a cameraman & editor, Magazine owner, Manage music artist, A&R for Empire/New Money Productions, graphic design & web design plus so much more. Which all these services I provide for music artist and business or anyone who needs brand building. Nothing in life is easy if you’re doing it at a high level. I played sports growing up and also played NCAA BBall & Professionally for a year with the Utah Jazz so i think i was built for this life! Owning your own business comes with plenty of things to overcome but you cant look at it like loses ONLY LESSONS. Everything happens for a reason and nothing is good or bad… just experience.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Everything we would do would be filmed because im always working so we would catch a professinal sporting event no matter which one. Go get food…Film some more and create content!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
All credit goes to my family! Mom(Audrey) and Dad(Frank) raised me the right way so I forever give them the credit! I always looked up to my cousin Wilbert Hunter aka Chill Wil and im a product of my grandfather SJ Farrar!
