B. Andre Interview: Keeping it real and never giving into the trends

Taking us through the real life journey and never backing down, B. Andre shows us into his new release EGO and reveals more about never giving up on love and what it takes to be a successful musician.

We appreciate your time today, B. Andre. Where in the world do we find you and what is your favourite kinda meal to keep your systems firing all day?

B. Andre: My favorite meal has to be anything seafood lol. I can be found on all social media sites @b_andremusic but this link will take you to all my music

When you are in that booth recording music, what does it feel like when you close your eyes?

B. Andre: I’m promoting more now so I haven’t been in the booth for a month or so, but closing my eyes while in there lets me envision my music and not just hear it.

Your new 11-track release called EGO has just dropped. What are your favourite songs from the project and what should new fans expect?

B. Andre: My favorite song is Broken Dreams, not to be mistaken with my lead single Broken Record, Broken Dreams speaks on my real life heartbreak. Fans should expect plenty of content to get you in the vibe of the album.

Broken Record is the lead track. What is the vision behind this smooth song?

B. Andre: Broken Record is a track that should teach you to keep fighting for love and not give up on it like this generation seems to do so frequently.

Do you have any live performance events to tell us about or any tours looming in 2023?

B. Andre: I have a music festival I am doing in February in my hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio and another music festival set for June 2023 in Kentucky.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

B. Andre: I was told to always do what I feel is best in my artistry and never give into the trends.

Last, what advice would you give to a new musician starting out in this wild game?

B. Andre: I would say, always bring your hard drive to the studio with you and take your sessions because you have to truly treat your music as your baby and your hard drive you keep it on is your car seat lol.

Hear this fine single on Spotify. See more via IG.
