From the success of his family being on “Family Feud,” Eric the Prince, a young artist from Hawaii, is off to a great start. As he is branching out and branding himself in the music industry, Eric knows what it takes to get his music out there to the people. Even though, Hawaii, has a small music scene, Eric uses social media as a marketing tool to share his music and gain new fans day by day.
We got a chance to interview Eric the Prince about his artistry, what’s next for him, and some of his highlights of the year. Check it out below:
Tell us about yourself and your music.
I’m Eric. I go by Eric the Prince, it’s a play on Prince Eric from the little mermaid because I am from the middle of the sea.
How would you describe your sound?
I’d describe it as uplifting, dominating, victorious.
Talk about the experience making your song/mixtape.
I would say it’s been quite the experience learning how to mix and engineer songs, working with almost every studio in Hawaii, and working with lots of other artists. The egos are hard to deal with sometimes, but I’ve learned enough to now know how to get the whole process up. I’ve got a bunch of collaborations I am doing, and in Hawaii it’s important to merge the fan-bases of several artists because the scene is small out here and the reggae shows are getting a lot more turn out than the hip hop shows, so I try to branch the two, collaborating with major reggae bands is something that’s still on my list, I do have a couple songs that are reggae inspired though.

What’s one thing you have learned or discovered while being in the indie music scene/industry?
It will go as far as you take it, you’ve got to get in the face of the people who can make a difference… the whole thing is about complaining to the right people. Some people complain to others when they should be complaining to God, dumping their concerns and frustrations on Him so that He can take care of it, same thing with record label executives – you gotta get in their face, show them what you want, ask big, and never give up. It’s the same as sales.
What can we expect from you in the future?
Big collaborations with major artists, charity projects and albums, traveling worldwide.
