Twist Online : First of all tell us about the start of your professional career?
Cjae : Well I’ve always been a writer, I transitioned from poem to songs. I’ve been writing music for about 9 years but only began taking it seriously just about a year and a half
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Cjae : I’ve always had a love for music. A close friend of mine passed away in 2015 and that’s when I decided that life was too short not to chase my dream and follow my passion.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent work?
Cjae : I released an EP on December 14, 2016. I did that with the help of one producer. It’s the first project I’ve committed to and I’m very pleased with both me being able to stick to it as well as how it turned out. It’s a project very close to my heart and I hope to continue making bigger and better projects.
Twist Online : What kind of response you have received so far?
Cjae : It’s been very very positive. Which makes it even more thrilling.
Twist Online : What attracts you more, performing on stage or working in studios?
Cjae : Working in studios. I’ve always been sort of an inside person, so being in there surrounded by music makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. Performing live is something I’m getting used to as I’m relatively shy.
Twist Online : You have been experimenting with different genres.What’s your favorite music genre?
Cjae : My favorite is definitely R&B/Soul. I’ve grown up hearing the likes of Barry white, Boyz II men, and New Edition playing around the house. So that has the biggest influence on my style.
Twist Online : Have you set some target to achieve as a music artist?
Cjae : My biggest goal/target is to make this my professional career. Currently I’m trying to break into the industry and make a serious mark. Right now it’s doesn’t pay the bills so it’s an investment I’m making in myself and my future in music.
Twist Online : Are you currently working on any other project?
Cjae : I’m working on 2. But I won’t say what they are just yet. I want to roll everything out slowly. Be on the look out for new, exciting stuff.
