Recently James Lowe from Kickacts Magazine sat down with one of the very exciting artists on the scene. The following is a written interview we conducted with the artist.
Welcome to Kick Acts. Tell us a little about yourself and your band and were you can be found at on the web.
You can find me on the wed at @brianpsalms for the twitter on facebook at www.facebook.com/brian.psalms ,and we are working on the website and it will be when finished www.brianpsalms.com but it’s not ready yet.
Who are your musical heroes, influences & why?
Stevie Wonder is my music hero, because his music just hits you in the heart. I love how Jay Z has been able to stay in the game so long even at 40. And there’s more, but I don’t feel like talking about them.
Do you have any advice for someone just getting started in playing music? Any pitfalls they should avoid?
Just have fun. Music is suppose to be therapeutic, and yes you are suppose to per-fect your craft, but just have fun.
Do you have a greatest gig story you’d like to share?
Actually, my first gig was a big one. I wasn’t sure how the people were going to react to Christian rap, but they went crazy, and I got a lot of compliments on the lyrics. I was performing Still I Stand Remix.
On the same token as the above question. How about a “worse gig” ever story.
Really don’t have any worse gigs yet.
Do you have any other hobbies other than playing music? Collect stamps? Collect hats from off the side of the road? Draw pictures of boobs?
I am an athlete and I love sports. I love football, and basketball.
What do you think about the present music scene or lack of? Care to address that?
I like the present hip hop scene because all the beats sound like their from Down South, and being from Texas that is right up my alley.
Tell us something about each of your band members that we wouldn’t expect to hear… Like their hobbies or something like that…
I speak in tongues in my prayer life. When I tell people that they always look at me funny unless their from a full gospel church.
Hypothetical situation. You’re stranded on Gilligan’s island and you get to hook up with only one of the girls… Is it Ginger, Mary Ann or Mrs. Howell and why?
I watched the show when I was younger, but can’t quite remember the characters.
Our last question is called “Shout It Out Loud”. It’s were you get to talk about whatever you want to talk about. So go ahead and “SHOUT IT OUT LOUD”!
I hope people will give God a little time in their life. All God wants from you is a relationship, so if you can, put a little time out for him.
