We had the good fortune of connecting with Rockwelz and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Rockwelz, what’s the most important lesson your business/career has taught you?
Time waits for no man. Ive seen alot of artists come and go. No matter what excuses we come up with, we are going to make time for the things we really want to accomplish.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Ive never been a follower. Being a leader when it comes to music is important because your conveying a message. These days the information we receive can be so tainted its important to me to release music that talks to your soul, provokes thought and still knocks. Im proud of what I put my name on because its real. Im still not where I want to be in my music career but each year I get closer and its scary. The people who have shared how my music has helped them keep me motivated to continue to challenge mainstream and apply pressure to anyone coming after me. I learned along the way that art is valued according to what someone is willing to pay for it. Knowing my worth is key when sacrificing my time and energy. Money isnt everything. The world needs to know im a success story they havent read yet. Its still being written and the best is yet to come.
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?
I love the A, when im in town I try to support local business. Eating good food at The Copper Cove or Blue Water Seafood truck. Take in a bit of rich local history and grab a drink or 12 at the gentlemans club. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Shoutout to the Mxnxpxly team, all those involved assisting with this new album Blue Chips. I believe its truly a masterpiece. Producer Gutta Brown, features John Jigg$, Skyzoo, Bub Rock, Mouf, Nam Nitty and J Surprise. Also Swab on the cuts and scratches.
