Hailing from South Carolina, 4-4 Water is a driven, passionate and charismatic artist with a unique approach to his blend of hip-hop, pop and R&B.
The eclectic performer set out to achieve something truly unique embracing the refreshing idea that great music is something that one can relate to from many different angles: his sound is all about connecting with the listeners through high-energy release, uplifting melodies, a smooth lyrical flow that knows no boundaries or useless genre definitions.
We recently had very interesting conversation with him.
Twist Online : How was your start of music career?
4-4 Water : I’ve always had a love for music since I was knee high! I can still remember jumping out of my high chair when “soul train” came on the tv! Lol I took it seriously at the age of 17 & really focused on what I wanted to create. It was bumpy at first but once I found my self & sound it was on!
Twist Online : Do you write lyrics yourself?
4-4 Water : Yes! I’m a firm believer in writing my own lyrics! For me I always have felt like how can someone else write my story? Listeners want to feel & envision what your saying & believe you not someone else.. I just thank the most high for the ability to write!
Twist Online : What’s your music genre? Hip-hop, pop, rock or any other?
4-4 Water : My genre is a blend between hip-hop/r&b/pop i do not believe in just one style of music! We all feel different at different times in our lives..i really like to push the boundaries! For me it’s exciting, fun, & challenging! I’m the type of artist that loves branching out and experimenting with different sounds! With all said..At one point in time it was all about music! Whatever happened to that? Like the saying goes.. it’s either good or bad!
Twist Online : Tell us more about your single””House party“?
