We’re happy to be speaking today with a phenomenal underground music artist with mainstream notoriety in Hip Hop “ Scorch”! Before we get started, how has 2023 been treating you thus far?
2023 has been treating me excellent, so far so good. My new single Tan Caliente is steady rising in numbers on TikTok and we just reached 7.5 million views.
What was the role of music in the early years of your life?
Music acted as a positive outlet for me to express myself allowing me to connect to people on a higher level.
Who was your main musical inspiration?
Stephen Brown Senior, my father who was my musical inspiration. He was in a group called The Charts back in the day and had a hit song called Desiree.
What are your top 5 dream collaborations?
My top 5 dream collaborations I would have to say that my list would be significantly longer because there are so many artists I’ve been inspired by but I would have to say Jay Z, Kanye, Rihanna, Eminem, Lil Wayne.
Do you create music for yourself or for your fans?
I create music for my fans but I have created some intimate songs that were therapeutic for me as well so I would have to say both.
What is your best gig you’ve ever played?
I would have to say Glendale arena.
How do you energize your audience?
I’m an action junky so I’m jumping into the crowd. Dancing getting the fans to repeat the hook back to me literally moments after they hear it.
What formula do you follow when you are writing songs? Or is it not a formula, but a process for you? Explain.
I listen to the beat, if you listen to the music the song will literally tell you what to write making the finished product organic and not forced.
What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?
Getting my music out to a larger audience was a problem that has since been rectified.
What are your other interests besides music?
Acting, I’ve always wanted to star in a leading role in a movie.
What advice would you give to someone inspired to walk in your footsteps?
I would tell them hard work and dedication is a key component to reaching their musical goals. Also, don’t look for people that you know to support you. Don’t get me wrong any and all support is good but a stranger doesn’t have an attachment to you, so when they support they don’t expect that back ten fold and when they give criticism it’s raw because they are not invested in your feelings. You don’t need a bunch of yes men around you.
