We had the good fortune of connecting with Ja’ness Tate and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ja’ness, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I’ve learned that In my career if i don’t take some kinds of risk or even leaps of faith in certain situations I won’t grow I won’t go anywhere. I believe that there are some necessary risks you have to take in order to jump start or keep your career going. It is also good to do this in your life as well. As long as it’s not physically hurting you or anyone else it’s okay to fail because you can always try again!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’ve learned so many things growing up in music! One thing that has stuck with me throughout the years is the phrase “Consistency is Key”. In the beginning I didn’t understand what that meant I mean I was singing all the time and performing all the time but that wasn’t enough. I needed to find what makes me ME and why that thing should make others interested in what I’m doing and to keep doing that. And I practice that every day!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If my Best friend were to come down and visit me we would go everywhere! I myself don’t really have time to explore the city because I’m always working on music or another role, which is so fun for me! I get so consumed with that that I forget to indulge in some entertainment every once in a while, so I wouldn’t really know the best spots to go, but I don’t mind exploring with my friend!
