Featured Artist: Andrae


September 16th, 2016

We recently sat down with Andrae to learn more about his music.

Us: How did you come up with your artist name?
Andrae: At first it was pretty hard to think of one to be honest with you, but then I was at home and my mom was just yelling my name and then she yelled my middle name which is “Andrae” and exactly when I heard it I knew that’s what my artist name should be.

Us: What inspired you to start making music?
Andrae: I have always been in love with music from a very young age and as I got older I would begin to showcase myself more and more to show people I could sing but I was shy and then I stopped going to school for a while and then transferred out. The school I ended up going to changed my perspective on things and music too and with a lot things happening in my personal life I needed a way out to express myself the best way I could and it was the music. So basically it was the life I was living that made me come closer to the point of this is what I want.

Us: Who is/are your biggest influence(s) and why?
Andrae: My biggest influences are Drake, Bryson Tiller, Tory Lanez, JB of right now. Of all time its Michael Jackson and Boyz II Men, Ginuwine because these are the people I grew up listening too their music is what made me who I am today and shaped the way I look at music and I would want my music to influence people.

Us: What do you want your fans to feel when they hear your music?
Andrae: I want my fans to connect with the stuff I put out not just on a music level but on a deeper level like I want my lyrics to be able to resonate with you. Like with Bryson Tiller said in exchange ” Lord please save her for me, do this one favor for me.” That hit people and its been almost a year since that song was released and people are still feeling a type of way when they hear it. That’s how I wanna influence people.

Us: What can we expect from you? What are you working on? What do you have coming out?
Andrae: You can always expect the best from me, I am always writing new songs, songs that people will hopefully love and I am just working as hard as I can to put out some good quality tracks so that people can love and see the good production work from my producer who is an amazing upcoming producer. I have some songs that should be coming out soon and I’m planning on working on a little EP or mixtape.
