Meet Tyràn Edwards, a musician, a New Yorker, and a business man. Everything in that description will set up new readers and potential fans to know that Tyràn works hard and knows how to make things
happen. As an independent artist, he or she has to figure out a formula on what works best for him or her. Tyràn is already there. From his music speaking truths, relating to his supporters, and his energy and passion for the craft, it is hard to not like him. So that’s why we had to get an interview with the budding artist. We discussed his new music, what’s next for him and some lesson he has learned along the way. Peep the interview below.
Tell us about yourself and your music.
I am Tyràn Edwards. I’m from Long Island, NY. I have a background in music since grade school. I was in chorus until my first year of junior high school and orchestra until my
sophomore year of high school. I lost interest in playing because, I learned how to rap during that time, I stopped. My music is an capsule of emotion. I learned to use emotion to reach a level of revealing myself. Sometimes I listen back and cringe because, I said too much.
I try not to hide anything. I learned that from 2pac, you never hear anyone exposing him. He puts all his personal issues in his music.
How would you describe your sound?
Emotional and filled with energy.
I never purposely made it that way. One day, I did a track like that out of no where and I never turned back. I would play my tracks to my own family members, and they wouldn’t believe it was me sounding so hype and pissed off (laughs).
Talk about the experience making your song/mixtape.
“I Put a Spell On You” was done very fast. I made it in 10 mins. I had to let go a lot of frustration dealing with people at the time. I was built up with a lot of pain. Knowing I lost my dad was the key to me feeling like that.
What are you currently working on? Any new projects? Shows?
No shows yet, but the project I’m working on is titled “I Have a Vision” every song will have I in it. To connect with the vision. Each song is branches of a vision.
What has been your biggest highlight in your music career this far?
The biggest highlight, I say this and it’s really important. Having my company 7Life, and being my own boss. I put up the money for the budgets and decide on what’s the next great idea to commit for this company.
Name your ideal collaboration: mainstream or independent artist(s)
Mainstream collaboration I would say Nas.
For indie, it would be Chance the rapper. That dude is smart how he used an agency to push his brand out to the public.
Name something random that people do not know about you.
I have a passion for cooking. Due to being a full time business man and entertainer. I don’t have time to do it everyday.
What’s one thing you have learned or discovered while being in the indie music scene/industry?
I learned that some artist really don’t know how to set up publishing or get their music streamed. I seen how they lacked music business skills to get paid off their work too. I met one artist who was reluctant to put his music out on iTunes, but was only fine with putting it out for free. He wasn’t listening to me when I said “you can do both.” All my music is free too but, you can support it and buy it and play it on your iTunes or Spotify or any streaming service you use.
What can we expect from you in the future?
You can expect quality arts like graphics, photos, along with music and videos and strong businesses. I’m providing services for artist who are interested in getting on music streaming services and publishing and video play.
