Lisa: Hi MStyleZ! What first got you into music? What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?
MStyleZ: I started singing at the age of nine. In elementary school, I performed for various Cambridge political, and social events. My resume is quite long to say the least. I was awarded scholarships for voice, piano, and music theory, at the New School of Music in Cambridge, MA My teachers were Berklee College Of Music staff in Boston, MA
I was picked for Northeast districts, when I attended Watertown High School. In Watertown MA. In 1996, I landed the lead role as “Dorothy” in “The Wiz” with Pentucket Players in Haverhill, MA In 1997, I performed at President Clinton’s Inauguration, at the Mall of America in Washington DC With “Save our Youth”.
This was just in my younger years!
To be honest with you, I have been doing music for so long, I can’t see myself doing anything else.
Lisa: How would you describe the music that you typically create?
MStyleZ: Primarily R&B and Hip Hop. With just a smidgen of Rap. When I was younger, my mother made sure I was very well-rounded with different types of genres of music. I try to incorporate a little of everything.
Lisa: What is your creative process like?
MStyleZ: I tend to write sporadically in the notes on my iphone, before I even find the melody. Some people think I’m crazy for that. When I hear the right melody, I know what fits for what I wrote.
Lisa: What has been the biggest surprise so far about making music your career? What has been an unexpected or welcome challenge to it all?
MStyleZ: How many opportunities and doors have opened for me. It makes me feel good others can relate, and appreciate my music. I am my own worst critic. I am a serious perfectionist. My EP was actually finished this summer. But I wasn’t satisfied. So I ripped it all up, and started over.
Lisa: I really loved your song “Imperfectly Perfect”, titled as your EP. Can you tell me more about it? What’s it about, and how did you get inspiration to write it?
MStyleZ: One of my music colleagues took a picture of me. Just a regular picture of me sitting on a flight of stairs. At this point, I honestly had no clue what I was going to title the EP at that point. I looked at the picture, and the phrase “Imperfectly Perfect” came to me. I wrote a song based on the picture alone. I am not perfect. However, I’m comfortable in my own skin. Nobody is perfect. So therefore, I’m imperfectly perfect. It was also a song about letting go. Letting go, of what I didn’t want. I am very independent and prideful. I was tired of dictation. I live for myself, and only myself. So I found a perfect melody, in my instrumental catalog. That’s how “Imperfectly Perfect” was born.
Lisa: What is your favorite track you’ve written so far, and why?
MStyleZ: It would definitely say it is, “Imperfectly Perfect” I felt like that song was my release of all my pent up emotions.
Lisa: Who are some of your favorite artists or rather, what musicians have continued to inspire you and your music? Who would you absolutely still love to work with in the future?
MStyleZ: So this is totally far fetched. I grew up on:
Earth, Wind, and Fire
But I really like Ariana Grande as a new age artist. Plus so many others to name. But as we are aware, we have lost some of these artists. Out of all the above mentioned artists, It would absolutely have to be the legend Mr. Stevie Wonder.
Lisa: You’ve signed for Bentley Records, how did that happen, and how satisfied are you working with them so far?
MStyleZ: I posted some of my older tracks from my previous EP “Bean Girl Vibe” (Its a song about being a girl from Boston) on a small music platform called Reverbnation. Reverbnation will post opportunities for artists. Bentley Records was looking for artists for a marketing and distribution contract. I am an opportunist. I like to knock on every door, and see what doors open. I figured, what do I have to lose? I sent in my EPK (Electronic Press Kit) to Bentley Records through Reverbnation. Bentley Records contacted me via email, then sent me a proposal. I read the proposal, and felt like it was a great opportunity. Also, it was a very fair contract. So I decided to take the deal. I am more than satisfied to be signed to Bentley Records. They give you the tools you need to grow as an artist. They also were more than helpful, and supportive on my release. I am happy I made the decision to sign with Bentley Records. They do their job, and do it well.
Lisa: What is the best advice you’ve been given?
MStyleZ: So much advice, from many great artists. Here are a few I live by:
“You have to stay humble, or life will do it for you.”
“You cannot let anything take you off your creative process.”
“Thank God for your blessings.”
“All that glitters, isn’t gold”
Lisa: What’s next for you?
MStyleZ: During Corona, I was in and out of the studio building my catalog. I have so many unreleased songs. I am still in and out the studio. I am also working with other local artists. I think it’s time to release a LP in the near future.
Lisa: At the end of the day, what do you hope people take away from your music?
MStyleZ: At the end of the day, what do you hope people take away from your music?
I am a person with feelings and emotions like any other. I want to inspire and give hope. I also want to uplift, especially during such an uncertain time.
