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

Hi Sawse, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I’m all about risks. Walking out of the house every day is a risk. You can’t be afraid to risk it all sometimes, having everything on the line is a different type of pressure. One that i thrive under.

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 been doing music seriously now for about 5 years, and i can say every year i grow. They say you have to put in 10,000 hrs to perfect something, I’d say I’ve put in that times 10. All i do is work on my music. These days the music gets lost in the image, i feel my music speaks for itself because you can feel the real behind it. I don’t make music for people trying to escape reality, i make music for the people that feel reality everyday. Life is real , you can’t run from it, people want to hear stuff that they can really relate to. Nothing in life is easy so I’d be telling you a lie if i said it was. There were so many times i wanted to stop but that just not in me.. i can’t quit. When you know you’re HIM. Why stop?

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Honestly I’m really a home body, i did all of my running around in college. I’m honestly kinda boring. I’m either in the studio or I’m with my fur kids ( I’m a dog dad). Other than that i love to get wings so i hit all of the spots in the surround metro areas. I really don’t go out that much i prefer not to. Unless I’m getting paid of course.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
First and foremost, i gotta show my mama some love! She birthed a star in real life. I would also like to shout out my 4 little brothers. They are my true motivation. My support system definitely deserve ms to be recognized, they push me and keep me honest. You are only as good as the people your are around and i have to say I’m surrounded by a lot of great people!
