TJ How did you get into the business you are in? What do you like most about it?
BW I am using music as a vehicle for my ministry. I also really want to create music that people can relate to as music is therapy for me. I really enjoy the people you meet through connections and friends you meet even in the business.
TJ Where are you gifted musically?
BW I would say I am gifted vocally along with playing the piano. I am also known for my ability to dance.
TJ Do you have any suggestions for artists that are trying to get their name out?
BW I would recommend that you work on your craft before your work on your promotion. Once you are done with your creation that you put your self in a place to make the right connections. Also just putting the time and effort into it or else you will not go anywhere with it.
TJ Is there large time commitment for making music? Is it worth it? Why?
BW There is a large time commitment for making music. I have invested 12 hours on one specific song in a day. There are times I would not sleep or eat because I am so invested in a song. I would say this time commitment is worth it because of the end product. Also the memories you make with friends while creating this music.
