Today we’d like to introduce you to Lyzrd.
Hi Lyzrd, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today.
The Lyzrd artist and brand came about throughout my high school years when I began to put together my artistic abilities to create marketable music and apparel. This was a slow process that began in 2014 and led to the first published album you see now which was released in 2020.
This took countless hours and sleepless nights of learning software, practicing instruments, writing lyrics, learning about publishing and royalties, rehearsing music, long drives for gigs, countless failed business ideas, overcoming personality clashes, and doing the same scene over and over again for a video.
I have only begun to come into my own artistically, I am very grateful for all of the love and support I have received thus far in this endeavor and I look forward to the Lyzrd brand moving forward to the ability to employ creative people at the price they are truly worth.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The creative route is nothing without the potholes along the way. That’s what forces us to be creative. Theft, accidentally wiping hard drives, setting up video shoots, and key people bailing on it the day of, the list goes on and on. If you cannot adapt to these complicated situations you can drown in the sauce. Drugs. I could give you a book on drugs. To sum it up it’s not too far from the tabloids. A true artist thrives in chaos.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Rap/Rock. That’s what I do. My way. Nu-Metal but modern and more hip hop, more trap, more lyrical. But more guitar nerd too. I try and stay away from the blues scale and what I call public domain chord progressions. If I can haha. No one is perfect. I am super proud of doing these producer albums. Me and 1 producer make magic. 2 out 2 on the way. Stay by your phone.
Where we are in life is often partly because of others. Who/what else deserves credit for how your story turned out?
Clutch Lyfe, Shmu-el Ocho, Joseph Odhiambo, Rmata, Popz Tha Kon, 6Phonesmalone6PhonesAG, Alxvnder Tha, Sam Rothstien, Bill Shaft, Dj Master Fresh, MC-Z, Urban Artifact, Nls Tofer, God, Chris Wise, Klassy, Miles G, Flatline Franko, Roxx Mcfly, Lantana, $ir Quest, Dash Cash, Dray Yee, K-Town, Phot0n, Cincinnati State, YourMomsHouse-Denver, and even this magazine.
Every name above deserves credit and your support. Most people, a few venues, and a community college. Some are great friends some are people I’ve met briefly along the way. Everyone has shown me at least one moment that inspired me and kept me on the path.
