IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What city and state are you from?
BLIZZARD: South Lake Tahoe, CA
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?
BLIZZARD: I started writing music when I was 17 in Juvenile Hall. It quickly became my form of expression. I always feel like I can really be myself on a track and find the all the right words I want to. Its always been that escape for me to get away and think, and get myself lost in the rhythm.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
BLIZZARD: I want to make a name for myself and help put other amazing underground artists on the map. I want to continue to make songs that lift people up when their down, make a difference in the world, inspire the whole music industry and generations to come.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?
BLIZZARD: The rough parts of life. I talk a lot about the problems we face in the world today through my own experiences and an outsider looking in. I try to express the brighter side of bad times, whether it be getting passed it or coping with it daily. I relate to the everyday struggles in so many ways.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who is your fan base directed towards?
BLIZZARD: I really have a fan base of all ages, gender, religion, wealth, and so forth. I feel like the realistic approach to reality is interesting to people. The fans out there are not as simple minded as some portray them to be, especially in the independent world. People want new, yet something they can relate to, quality sound, and something to follow and believe in, something real.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who are your musical influences?
BLIZZARD: I love music and I do enjoy listening to a lot of other artists, but there are only a few I find inspiring my music. I would have to say “Prozak” is a big one, as well as “Mr Enonomuss”. The groups “Twiztid”, and “Swollen Members” never seize to amaze me. Same with the solo projects of “Madchild”, always incredible work from those guys. As much as I stick with my own style, I can’t lie, all of those artists continue to inspire me today with old hits and new ones.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How would you describe your music to people?
BLIZZARD: My music is real, incredible hip-hop rhythm, mixed with the melody of life we live.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?
BLIZZARD: I am me haha. I keep an all around open mind, My style is not set to one way. I bring it all 100% of the time, doing things at my own beat. I’m not set on bars, or BPM, I do Blizzard on the track! I come out to express a feeling or opinion and I do it the way I feel right. I have an un-matched sound on the mic.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?
BLIZZARD: I am currently working on “Late Night Drinkers 2”. The follow up to the remix mix-tape, this full length album will feature my personal remixes of songs from Atmosphere, Tech N9ne, Wiz Khalifa, Cody Massacre, Cheech & Chong, NOFX and many more. This album will be available 09-11-2014 for free download all over my personal pages around the web! I am also working on “Yee-Yuh” which is my 5th Studio album. It currently has 13 tracks and no release date. Previews of both these albums can be found on my personal pages.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
BLIZZARD: I want to make music all the time, and I want touring and playing shows be my job. I also want to help other artists grow and make a name for themselves. In ten years I see myself doing just that. I know I will have at least 20 more albums under my belt, and I’ll be touring and bringing in fresh new faces to open gigs for me. I want to continue inspiring people, and let my inspiration speak for me long after I’m gone. In other words, I’m building a legacy.
