Check out his answers below and get to know a little more about him.
How did you get involved in music?
My first involvement in music was in High School A Capella Choir for four years, which is where I learned to read and write music. Since then, I have always written poetry as a hobby. In 2012, I became more serious about my music teaching myself how to use Garage Band and Pro Tools on my Mac Pro book laptop, writing my lyrics; long story short, I taught myself about every aspect of the music business — learning from my mistakes along the way. Last year I became an MTV Artist, and now I am beginning to see the progress of my hard work.
Who were some of your influences?
I am inspired by everyday people, my personal experiences in life and — of course — anyone whom can relate to my journey, and whom are successful.
Tell me about the music you’re currently recording.
I have just released a hot new R&B track “You And Me,” which is slowly gaining attention across the country; but, now I am woking on an electrifying Rock/ R&B track called “Coffee.” The video and single will be released July 1.
How would you describe your sound?
Positive music the triggers all emotions and genres.
What are your goals in the industry?
I have a few songs that are commercially ready for major brands like “You Can’t Fill My Shoes,” “Red White Blue,” and “Coffee” — endorsement deals would be ideal for these songs.
What do you want people to take away from you as an artist?
JRS3 is an exceptional Indie artist that supports other Indie artists that are given the chance to prove their worth on the national stage.
Do you want to remain independent or sign to a major label?
Currently, I am an Independent, but I am open to a major label deal where we both profit; but, I am I ready to go from hobby to business!
What should we be looking out for from you?
Coffee, the new single and video, will be released on July 1st — and XM Radio talk shows are coming soon.
