We are sharing our recent interview with a multi-talented artist Jac Steele.
Twist Online : First of all please introduce yourself to our readers.
Jac Steele :My name is Jac Steele. Singer, Songwriter, Actress originally from Kalamazoo, MI. Currently residing in ATL.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Jac Steele :I would have to say all the music I heard my family playing when I was growing up. I remember hearing all different types of music. My mom would play alot of Mary J Blige, Faith Evans, Pac, Biggie. Grandma would be playing Whitney, Isley Brothers, R.Kelley. My aunt was heavy into Keith sweat. I would hear Kelley Price. Then I grew up in the 90’s and 2000’s when Pop music was killing the scene so I got into Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, Backstreet Boys, and of course the King of Pop Michael Jackson. I fell in love with all of it, I was very inspired by all genres. I discovered I could sing before I could even walk so it all just clicked for me.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent project?
Jac Steele :So I have a project dropping ‘You Should Have Loved Me in E.L.’ ‘College Boy’ is a single off of that project. E.L stands for East Lansing which is where my Alma Mater is located, Michigan State University. So ‘College Boy’ and the project itself is actually reminiscent of my days at school, and the things I was sort of experiencing at the time. I’ve always been a lover so a lot of the songs are about my relationships around that time and a couple of guys I dated over the years back then. It touches on the good, the bad, and the hurtful things. Although ‘College Boy’ is one of those fun loving, light hearted songs… I haven’t always received the love ive shown others…So the title of the project sort of sends a message. You know how sometimes guys who mess up try to come back?’ You Should Have Loved Me in E.L’ says you should have loved me when you had the chance. You know, now I live in ATL I’ve moved on to different things, I’ve matured, time has passed… so things aren’t the way they used to be.
Twist Online : What kind of response you have received so far?
Jac Steele :‘College Boy’ is definitely a Bop. I mean it features Divine 9 Fraternities, and they are always the center of attention at any party so that alone grabs the listeners ear. Anybody who has heard the song has been like Ayyee, been ready dance, and has had nothing but good things to say about it.
Twist Online : What’s your favorite music genre?
Jac Steele :I guess you could argue Rnb since that is what I do.
Twist Online : Have you set some goals to achieve?
Jac Steele: As far as goals are concerned for this project, I just want to lay a foundation and get momentum going. Hopefully build a fan base that will grow with me.
Twist Online : Are you working on any new project?
Jac Steele: I am hoping to pound out my next project im the coming months. I’m about 3 or 4 songs in. This project is my baby. I really want it to be next level for me. It will reflect the journey im currently on, which has been the craziest yet. I have really transformed as a person recent occurrences in my life has really forced me to level up so im really excited to share the pain, the love, the self discovery, and the transformation.
