Interviews

Today on our Hot Seat we have music artist TGYE with us. Let’s have a chat with him.

Twist Online : First of all please introduce yourself to our readers.
TGYE : Wassup, my name is Tigye, I go by TGYE, still said the same way, some people can’t even say my actual name right..I’m an artist out of NC, bringing a whole new sound, feeling, and wave to music.

Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
TGYE : I can’t say anyone inspired me really to get into the industry, I was born into music its in my blood, I guess the drive of wanting to do music and then on top of that wanting to be real different as much as I can with my sound is what inspired me, always wanting to prove something. Now it’s like i know my music is good, not to sound cocky, but I see the route I’m taking with it, and I know the outcome is gonna be crazy wild, in a good way.

Twist Online : Tell us about your recent work?
TGYE : Recently I dropped a quick play around song ‘The Bling Blow Anthem’, I wanted to test my melodies and see what levels of sound ti can take it too. It’s really a song just for people to all be together and sing together whenever they listen.

Twist Online : What kind of response you have received from the release?
TGYE : I mean so far it’s straight I guess, in term of plays it’s at like 10k now, about to hit 11k. Although i do appreciate the plays and stuff, I don’t really do it for plays though, I just want to get heard, I want to open a new door to music. I get a lot of feed back, like I’ll have random people hit me up telling me how much they love the song. I want to be able to get people to really feel my music, as if my music is 6th sense.

Twist Online : What attracts you more, performing on stage or working in studios?
TGYE : I like both equally, if I wanna vibe and get some work done, the studio is one of the calmest places for me, keeps my mind at ease when working on music. But when it comes to getting lit, performing on stage all the way, I like to rage, I love it when a crowd of people are all singing together in harmony. That’s the most beautiful thing to me, music brings people together, that’s what I plan to do with my music.

Twist Online : What’s your favorite music genre?
TGYE : I can’t even hold you, I don’t have a favorite genre. Nowadays music is so versatile, and it’s been artist that even mix genres together, I really couldn’t pick one. I listen to all kinds of music, anything but country, I can’t do country
music.

Twist Online : Have you set some goals to achieve?
TGYE : My biggest goal, is stay true to myself and never forget where I came from. Right now I’m steady working on music, trying to expand my audience and continue to better my craft. A few shows coming soon. Something very big too, but I’m gonna keep that on the low.

Twist Online : Are you working on any new project?
TGYE : Always. I’m always working on something new, I have plenty of new songs that’ll be dropping soon. When I feel I’m at a good point for an actual project, like a mix tape or even an e.p, that time will come
