Interview with artist C. Pitt ( @cpittofficial )
[Q] What's your overall vision for yourself?
[A] Help as many people as I can.
[Q]As an artist who do you listen to or follow for inspiration/influence? Any local artist/musicians on your radar?
[A] I'm not really influenced by rappers. not anymore at least. It's bigger than music especially if i feel like i don't click with your views or you as a person. A lot of rappers let me down in regards to that. Authenticity and genuineness is rare especially in the entertainment business.
[Q] How did you come about developing your own sound? Are you satisfied or still crafting your own tone?
[A] Practice and determination. I don't think i'll ever be satisfied and i'm sure i'll always be crafting my sound.
(I'm big into mixtapes myself but have grown to be very fond of a great thought out album. Mixtapes have essentially become albums -- due to people like Drake and Future. Which do you prefer?
[A] Good music is good music no matter how's its packaged or presented. I don't have a preference.
[Q] Can you describe your writing and recording style? You don't have to give away any secrets but, describe what get's you in your zone and the process.
[A] Not being around shit energy. I can pretty much create if I'm in a good mood or tame environment. I don't always write. I don't like to think too much when I record, strictly feel.
[Q] Where do you see the future of underground music in terms of sound and direction?
With soundcloud being iffy for the future of exposure of underground artist, where do you think artist will go to find more exposure? With not too many "free" music platforms out there, especially for up and coming artist that make a great deal of their beginning tracks sampled off major songs.
[A] The internet is the internet. With or without soundcloud, artists will be able to find exposure. Nobody has made it exactly the same way. No right or wrong formula.
