IAA SPOTLIGHT| GET TO KNOW HAWAII’S- TUNEZ- “My music is one of its own and more than you can fit in any image” @TunezGz | #IAAThePlug


Producing for the known unknowns; dive into the illustrious world of Tunez. The 26 year old artist was born in England and spent most of his time in Hawaii. Having an ear for music since he was young, he became more inclined to make his way into the music scene. In 2006, Tunez originally started producing music. Furthermore, he started writing rhymes in 2009.

The young mogul has a distinctive sound when it comes to music. Being that Tunez was raised around the world, his music stems from various cultural experiences, relationships and hardships. Tunez is always eager to find any way to improve as an artist. What better way than to write rhymes and spill a mental image over tracks he either produces or can’t leave off of a playlist.

Tunez only knows one way to steer the mic and that’s to subdue every beat he comes in contact with. He emits charms and chraisma on wax and in person. His versatility is one of his best weapons. Through his dedicated wordplay, Tunez uses hip-hop as a platform to enlighten and empower the community. “I’d love to unify those who doubt hip-hop as a whole; sculpt a new age of art if you will. I’ve always been instrumental throughout my life. I look forward to inspiring others through music.”

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

TUNEZ: I was born in England. Growing up, I spent my years traveling. I’m currently focused on build that place to call “home.”

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?
TUNEZ: Most of my influence stems from my upbringing around the world. I’ve had a chance to study acoustics and different styles of music hands on as I’ve traveled.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
TUNEZ: Music is universal. It’s conversation you can have with anyone. I wish to expand and continue to build the right bridges with my words. Unify those who doubt hip-hop.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?
TUNEZ: My songs are memoirs of my life, and an extended resolution to help us all move forward in our day to day. I had open heart surgery twice as a kid, so I’m always eager to show others that we can endure and always look to the road ahead of us.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who are your musical influences?
TUNEZ: My musical influences are Ski Beatz, Nas, AZ, Cool & Dre and Little Brother. From versatility, to progression. Those are my top 5, hands down.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How would you describe your music to people?
TUNEZ: My music is one of its own and more than you can fit in any image. Cinematic if you will.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?
TUNEZ: I’m always focused on developing as an artist. We grow every day and as I mature outside of music, I’m able to reciprocate that back into what I create.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in your music career, and how did you overcome?
TUNEZ: One of the hardest challenges I’ve faced in my music career has been the decline in my health over the past few years. The best thing to do was remain positive, and continue to put my all into the things that I love. As we look for ways to better our bodies, we do the same to better bodies of art.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are some upcoming projects that you are currently working on?
TUNEZ: I have a new instrumental soundtrack on the way. I don’t want to give too much detail about it, so we’ll let the anticipation build. Other than that, I have a smaller recorded project I’d love to release this year all leading into my next phase of music.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
TUNEZ: Never stop learning. There’s no limit to how high we construct our ideas. Through this, I want to continue to build the right bridges and help others find their light on their trail. In 10 years, I see myself venturing back to the places that brought the most influence throughout my life as well as reconnecting with those who helped shaped who I am today.
