Ev. Vinyls is an up and coming artist out of the Mile high city, and though he has only been making music for two years, he portrays himself as one of the most dominant as well as the most potentially dangerous in the game. Inspiration of iconic musicians from the 50’s and 60’s like bands such as The Beatles and the The Rolling Stones as well as artists like Marvin Gaye and Al Green have shaped Vinyls into the artist that he is today. Vinyls also grew up listening to bands like Blink-182 and Sum 41 that really gave his music a “punk” edge. With other inspirations such as J.Cole and Drake, Vinyls uses versatility in his verses to stay in the game. Originally from Dallas, Vinyls follows the flow with a bit of a southern style, and though spitting on a mainstream level he can still provide a soulful feel that almost anyone can relate to.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What city and state are you from?

EV. VINYLS: I was born in Dallas, Texas. I moved to Denver in 1999. Though I still have love for Dallas, Denver is my home now.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?

EV. VINYLS:  To be honest no one in my family plays any instruments or is musically inclined in any way. My father was just a huge fan of music in general. Listening to artists like The Beatles, Marvin Gaye, and The Rolling Stones definitely helped me develop a love for music at a very young age.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Why do you want to record and release your own music?

EV. VINYLS: The thing I love most about music is that it tells your story. It defines who you are as well as what you can potentially become. In my opinion, when it comes to stepping in front of that microphone, there’s no better feeling in the world. I’ve always said if you do something you love you’ll never have to work a day in your life. So if I can make a comfortable living making music that anyone can enjoy, I’ve truly succeeded as an artist.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?

EV. VINYLS:  Literally everything. My versatility I believe is one of the main reasons I can become a dominant artist in the music Industry. Until I can gain a substantial fan base I am just trying to make what I think the people want to hear. But anything from Party tracks, to Love, Trap and Pop tracks we have on lock. There really isn’t any limitation to what I can do.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who is your fan base directed towards?

EV. VINYLS: That’s a good question. It’s hard to say whether or not I’ve found my specific target audience yet. However majority of my listeners I would consider being in high school or college. So students most definitely, but being able to do a bit of everything definitely expands the potential for a much wider and diverse fan base, so I’m pretty interested to see who it reaches the most.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who are your musical influences?

EV. VINYLS: I am one of those artists who has a love for all things music. Like I said before music from the 60s is definitely one of my favorite eras of music. Artists like Al Green and Marvin Gaye will always remain a huge part of my inspiration. Bands such as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones all the way to more modern-day bands like The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sum 41, and Blink-182 were groups that had made me originally want to play an instrument in a band. That was until I found hip-hop. I have a number of idols that inspire me to wake up every day with the strength to continue to follow my dream. Off the top of my head, a couple of artists such as Big L, J Dilla, De La Soul and Lupe fiasco were the reason I initially started writing lyrics. Then J. Cole’s “Friday Night Lights” and Drake’s “Comeback Season” were what made me decide I wanted to give this a real shot.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How would you describe your music to people?

EV. VINYLS: A damn good time. For the moment, and while I’m still building a fan base I’m going as hard as I can to make music that anyone can enjoy. My music is easy on the ears, and I think anyone who listens has the potential to relate as well as instantly become a fan. I make music for people who work hard and play harder. In my opinion as an artist you are only as good as your production. And though it’s not cheap it’s always worth the investment. I’ll always make sure to have the best quality for all my listeners.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?

EV. VINYLS:  I can sit here and name off multiple reasons why I think I’m unlike any other artist, but the truth is my music speaks for itself. I’ve only been recording professionally for a little over two years and in that time the progress I’ve made and how far I’ve came already is incredible. I just have to continue to learn, stay confident, and stay consistent and anything is possible, I have a great team and great fans that keep my head on straight and keep me moving in the right direction.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?

FLYY PARIAH: I’m working on my next project “The Morning After” that’s going to make a lot of noise. On the LP I’ll be focusing on making more radio friendly music and targeting a total different audience than I did with “YAOML”. So stick around because there’s going to be a lot more to come.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

EV. VINYLS: Of course practically every artist hopes for a deal of some sort. Signing a major deal is obviously number one on my list, but like I said before if I can just make a comfortable living doing what I love, I’ll have accomplished my goal. As soon as I get my foot in the door, I’ll continue to make music but also focus on other business ventures such as starting a clothing company, or perhaps a liquor brand, as well as trying to get into a bit of acting. Once I can get the connections sky will be the limit. In 10 years I should have accomplished majority of those endeavors and living well.
