in a world where 90% of the bands and artists could care less about their approach as they just want to make labels happy, itís nice to hear artists like Casinova having the courage to write and play music the way he wants. This is one of the most important aspects for me when evaluating talent. This is not Justin Bieber or Maroon 5 Ė itís Casinova.
IMD In lieu of your latest release what do you want fans to take from your music?
C I just want people to enjoy what Iím putting out or what I will be putting out, and have fun ;)
IMD How did this latest release come together?
C Well my label got me together with Marvin Floyd and from there we started working
IMD Who are some of your top musical influences?
C My influences are people like Tank, Ginuwine, Tyrese, Musiq Soulchild, and my favorite Sammie who currently is going by Leigh Bush
IMD Whatís the best concert you have ever been to, performed at?
C I donít really go to concerts, but edm festivals I enjoy especially with friendís. As for performing, I Love performing anywhere. Donít really have a fave yet.
IMD Tell us about how Martial Arts effects you as an artist?
"I just want people to enjoy what Iím putting out or what I will be putting out,
and have fun ;)"
- Casinova -
C It keeps me grounded as a person not just as an artist, and it helps me deal with life just as much as my music helps me, they both allow me to move and think in creative ways. Fights arenít only in rings.
IMD How have you changed and evolved as an artist over the last few years?
C Iím more grounded now then i was a few years ago. I was a little arrogant leaving high school thinking i was gonna make it right then and there, obviously that wasnít the case haha. Over time you learn to be very patient, you learn to sit back and enjoy life not everything has to happen now. You also learn things do happen over time.
IMD Whatís it best and worst things about being an artist from your locale?
C The best part itís easy to meet unique individuals like yourself, and the worst part is noone really understands how you think accept for most other artist. As artistís when we have a bad day we really have bad days, and we all deal with things in a certain way. What brings us back from that are the fans, the way they talk about how they enjoy our music, and itís very uplifting. So right now Iíd like to thank those who listen to my music, you all are great. :)
IMD Whatís the best thing about performing live?
C I really love performing, i feed off of the energy of the crowd and I always try to give 110%. People take the time out to come and see me doesnít matter if itís 10 or 100 people Iím going to do my best for them.
IMD Amy touring scheduled to support your latest effort?
C No, no touring yet but i canít wait to travel, I think it will be a fun experience
IMD Whatís next for Casinova?
C Right now itís to just keep working hard and enjoy every minuet of it :)
