We had the good fortune of connecting with Tosinger and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tosinger, why did you pursue a creative career?
Like a plant bending towards the sunlight, I found myself going towards an artistic career path by virtue of my innate talents. Pursuing an artistic and creative was a no-brainer for me. As a child, I was surrounded by creativity and as I grew older I realized, it’s what makes me happy the most.
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. What sets you apart from others?
As an artist/musician, I have evolved and keep evolving. I am most proud of my consistency and commitment towards my art, my music, whether perfecting my skills in private or expressing and sharing in-front of an audience, live in public or via social media content. The lesson I’ve learnt is to remain consistent even if you are not where you think you are supposed to be, keep at it, and don’t give up despite challenges. I’ve learnt that music and art is subjective, and you will attract your own audience. I want the world to know that my brand and art/music have a healing essence. My aura and vibe is what sets me apart.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I live in Atlanta,so I will surely take a visiting friend to the most artistically eclectic locations and events. Artsy events are “my thing”, so we are talking concerts, stage plays/theatre and art exhibitions. We would visit the High Museum of Art and/or Hammond’s House Museum to check out beautiful, cultural art exhibitions. To eat out, if they are open to my preferences; I will love for my guest to have a taste of my African culture, so I would take them to an African restaurant like Cafe Songhai or Ike’s. I also love Thai Food. Little Five Points has the most exciting spots and diverse people. Lots of boho type shopping and music venues with live shows. Downtown ATL also has some fun spots, for touristy vibes, there’s the Aquarium, the Atlanta zoo and Coca-Cola and of course MLK center. I love nature, so we could hang at Piedmont Park or hike at any other beautiful trail parks or visit the Roswell Mills Waterfall. So much to do.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My shout out definitely goes to my immediate family unit. My husband and my two teenage sons have been very understanding, encouraging and supportive of my creative process and endeavors so far.
