We had the good fortune of connecting with G. Torres and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi G., can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
As an independent artist, outside of what inspires and motivated me, I wanted to build something that I could represent and stand for as I grow in this music business. Something not only myself but my city can be proud of. Not only something that I can call my own but also some thing I can call home for everything I create.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I pride myself in authenticity. I feel your music should be unique to your story because no one can tell your story better than you because you went through it, you lived it. That i believe allows my music as well as me as an artist to stand out from others who may do what I do. As far as what I’m proud of, I would have to say starting my independent label, Lion Side Music Group, and gaining the support from the fans and followers that have stuck with me up to this point in my career. The exciting part is networking and building relationships with those that can help me elevate as an artist and brand as well as gaining new fans that gravitate towards my music and whatever content I put out. Getting to this point in my career strictly came from grinding and consistency. Yet the work is never done and there’s still a long way to go. Definitely not an easy journey. Many ups and downs come along with pursuing a career in music and many factors play a part in that. I believe the best way to overcome the rough times is to pray, keep god first, never give up. Always keep in mind your purpose and reason why you go hard in your pursuit and that setbacks and “no’s” are a part of the journey on the way to that one yes that can change your life. If its one thing I want the world to know is that I am G. Torres, I represent Lion Side Music Group, it’s time we get acquainted lol
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Some of my favorite spots I would probably recommend is Sivas, Whiskey Blue and Whiskey Mistress. Area 4 is a dope spot too. The belt line and Ponce city market is a dope place to take a stroll, hear music, eat at a restaurant and shop. Literally a one stop shop. As far as restaurants i like Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint, I like Pappadeaux and Juicy Crab. Then of course there’s the tourist attractions like the Georgia Aquarium, Coca-Cola museum and The trap museum. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
All of my fans and supporters
