Yes there have been others before him, with him but there will never be another quite like Quelle.
given to do and i have to do it. I live for my family and Hip Hop -Higher Infinite Power , Healing Our People.
PIF: With any artist, entertainer, human being: travelling opens your eyes, if given the chance what would you change or add to what is considered to be the Bahamian music industry?
this ability that exists all over the world. The industry of music ,which is really is the business of music and then the entertainment
industry in The Bahamas has not grown to meet the needs of the talent or acts that it produces. I think more attention should be put on
educating music lovers that didn’t see the industry as a career choice and a unified effort should be made to understand truly what the
business of music is about. There are far too many people that claim to be in this “industry” that have either very little or no real
education on how the world of music operates. It’s one of our greatest downfalls.
Abstract A.R.T Volume 2! Are you as excited as we are!?!?! What can we expect to hear from you on this album?
wanted to focus intimately on the true struggle an artist can go through from losing loved ones to death and friends to reality. I
wanted to take the listeners even deeper down the “rabbit hole” of my mind and feelings. AATPV2 is meant to invoke a renewed sense of
freedom in expression. It’s my unconventional thoughts and beliefs through my spiritual connection to Hip Hop.
PIF: As an artist who has made waves and become a common name, what were the struggles you faced starting out and what are the struggles you currently face?
a fight to achieve this. On my road to “80’s Back” i dealt with all the usual lies and deception that young artist get from local
promoters and local wana-be mangers. When you really want something you will give it all you have and let foolish people assume they are
getting a “come-up”. The struggle continues for an artist no matter what level you get to and that is one of the best lessons i received
this year. Along with people only seeing you as a dollar sign or hype trophy.
PIF: I gotta ask for all the “lay lay babies” out there, is Mr. Glover/Quelle single?
PIF: Which Bahamian artists, that you haven’t worked with yet, would you like to or see yourself collaborating with?
Complex , Leah Eneas, Dash, Tony Mckay’s daughter, Kara Smith, Chippie Chipman , Adrian D’Aguilar and Pat Rahming.
PIF: Music can be a beautiful thing or such a cold mistress, yet most spectators expect an artist to make it in the space of a month when the harsh reality
is some never do. What advice would you give young artists who are considering or trying to get involved in the music industry?
finance out there. Don’t let your position defined you. Be honest with yourself and skill set, if you need to get better don’t make-believe
that you’re better than you are. Love your genre and know it’s history and major players. READ.
PIF: After the Art Volume 2- what inspired the name of these albums (1 & 2)?
present myself one way because of my raw sound. I wanted people that take this journey with me to understand that i’m more like an abstract
art piece than a one tone painting. The After The Art series which is a sub-series of AA was created to just give my listeners more music
between the main series. With that said there will be another After The Art coming after Tenacity & Perseverance. #smiley
PIF: This or that. Gonna give you a list with two choices, pick one:PIF: Macy Gray or Eryka Baduh RQ: Erykah hands DOWN !
