Interview with Poeboy Tone
• Performing Artist •
Describe your sound as if we were deaf
Southern bounce with city lingo. Slick talk.
What producers, songwriters and/or artists do you see as your primary inspirations?
LL Cool J, T.I., and Stevie Wonder.
Do you have a favorite musical project that you’ve worked on?
I don’t have one just yet.
What was the main factor for launching your career when you did?
Feeling that I had something major to contribute to the culture. A freestyle I did called “Standing for My Generation” is what made me realize my potential.
Who are some people you would like to work with?
T.I., Andre 3000, and John Legend. All three artists have music that I’ve listened to pretty much my whole life
How is the internet changing your craft?
I don’t feel it has changed my craft at all. If anything, just my approach on how to become successful utilizing the tool that is the internet.
Do you feel like what you are doing is important?
Without question. I speak with a voice that will resonate with a lot of people, speaking to my experiences and perspective. The culture needs substance on a consistent basis. I plan to entertain and also make a powerful and enriching impression on my peers and listeners.
Lastly, could you talk about any long-term goals or talents you have in mind?
Writing. It began with my love for music. I would love to also be a respected author in my later years. I don’t think I would ever stop writing music.
