Interview with BRAIN A (@brainabiding)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
My grandfather who grew up during the Great Depression is who lead me into music by showing me the twelve bar blues on the guitar as a kid..
Can you share the most interest in exciting happened to you since you started doing this?
Being able to work with some of my musical heroes like Myka 9 and Sadat X has been the biggest push to let me know that I’m heading in the right direction.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
Remaining humble and focused has helped me achieve all of my creative growth.
None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
N8NOFACE let me produce a solo project of his back in 2012 that really helped me begin to build a foundation for what I love to do.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I’m always looking for opportunities to pay it forward and to share what wisdom I’ve gained with others who are just starting off.
Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“It’s a big theme in my life, learning about myself and being a better person. I’m a work in progress; I have revelations every day.” from Rick Rubin has often served as a reminder to stay on the right path.
