Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Blvck Jagger : Music for me is an innate thing. As it is with us all. So I’ve always been a creator. I trust my instincts and my truth so that’s how the process starts. I knew at a young age I wanted to Free People. So I needed a resonance and that was music. Sound and frequency. It’s important to know that words truly mean things. So I knew the words and the Resonance I wanted to emit. The canvas then was set. I chose the medium of music to channel my energy for now. My whole family has musical talent so it’s like a tribal thing it’s spiritual thing. I just wanted a place of unlimited.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release “Welcome 2 L.A.” ?
Blvck Jagger : Welcome 2 LA it’s a vibe. Lol no really I had an idea about literally what I believe a perfect day in Modern Los Angeles sounded and felt like I called a great guitar melody and songwriter . I love to tell stories this was a cautionary tale over a sunny pacific coast highway sunset, hanging with the love of your life or your tribe or family type of energy. I’m from Compton, Ca but I love nature, I’m also Native American so it’s apart of me. I needed young people to see a different perspective about Los Angeles besides the propaganda media against people who look like me. My music is designed to push the aesthetics of copper-colored people forward. It’s a New Paradigm for a new time. Ultimate freedom of life and creativity in a natural way. I’m participating in the pioneering of a new world with other like minds. Welcome 2 LA is a part of that tapestry.

Our most powerful moments come in the present the mindful place because it’s sad we don’t get to live our lives as fluid as they designed but the great thing about our will and choice is it’s continuous. That’s why performing for me is the best i meet the people and they receive me in that moment and that the best feeling about music the untamed spirit of freedom of expression. Performance Transmutation.
