IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What city and state are you from?
MAJOR FLOW MUSIC: I am a native of a small town called Raywood, in Liberty County, Texas. I am currently in The Woodlands, a booming area just north of Houston.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?
MAJOR FLOW MUSIC: I started doing music in 1998, with my cousin and we managed to independently release an EP titled “FIFTY-FIFTY” in 2001. It sold around 8,000 copies locally, and we managed to do some shows with some major artists and got some radio play on local stations. I play the piano, the guitar, and have an unbelievable ear for rhythm and drum arrangements.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
MAJOR FLOW MUSIC: I want to record and release my own music because I feel I have something that people want to hear. The public has been force fed trendy music and have forgotten the way real music sounds. It’s been my life’s work, and I feel like there’s something I haven’t accomplished until I put it out there and know what will or won’t happen.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?
MAJOR FLOW MUSIC: Most of my music is about real life experiences. When I write, I try to be objective, and speak in a general voice so that anyone that has experienced a similar situation can completely relate to what I’m saying.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who are your musical influences?
MAJOR FLOW MUSIC: DMX got me started and influenced me to start rhyming. UGK has also played a role in the sound I’ve developed. Believe it or not, Paul McCartney has also been a major influence in my music.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How would you describe your music to people?
MAJOR FLOW MUSIC: My music is not typical. I don’t try to “fit in” to trends or try to sound like anyone else. My Dad told me that if music doesn’t have real instruments, it’s not real music. Since that day, I have incorporated real instruments into the sound. Most music today is completely synthesized and made on a computer, but mine is not.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?
MAJOR FLOW MUSIC: What makes me stand out from other artists is the fact that I can write, produce, and record my own music. Not to mention, I design my own flyers and promotional materials.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in your music career and how did you overcome?
MAJOR FLOW MUSIC: One of the hardest things I have had to overcome was the break-up of my group. I had a partner, and we recorded lots of music together. Once we went our separate ways, I was left with the music, and bill. I used that experience to be cautious of whom I work with, and it also was the driving force behind the music and sound I developed afterwards.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?
MAJOR FLOW MUSIC: I am currently working on my album project titled “NO LOVE”. I am also producing tracks for open submissions to ESPN, EA Sports, and the X GAMES.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
MAJOR FLOW MUSIC: My career goals are to be successful and make an impact on the music industry. I think music changes with the times, but the foundation is still the same. If it’s good, sooner or later someone will hear it. I would like to say I have a GOLD or PLATINUM project one day. In ten years I see myself as one of the premiere artists in the South, and one of the top producers in the industry.
