Keshore- Speaking To Many

Personalities

When it comes to having a talent that touches people with its impactful and moving ability, 18-year-old Atlanta, Georgia, artist Keshore is a prime example. The artist speaks to many, including his loyal audience, with his deep life experiences which showcase themselves throughout his music, as well as his nostalgic outlook on life.

Keshore, in this interview, speaks about the many hardships he’s gone through, his music, his beginnings, his future, and more.

Let’s uncover this Georgia artist.


Artist Keshore states that his musical alias is actually his middle name. Keshore’s father and sister gave him that middle name based after a famous Indian musician and actor.

Growing up, Keshore comments that he felt like he was a loner. He states that he loves his family but he always felt like an outlier to everyone. Keshore felt alienated due to his music, and his differences.

“I was there but the majority of the time I didn’t feel that way. It’s getting better now kinda but like any wound, it needs time to grow [heal],” says Keshore.

The Georgia artist states that he suffered many hardships throughout his life. Some physical, and others mental. This included depression, and family-based trauma/issues.

Keshore comments that he backpacked and ran away from home at one stage.

“Most of my hardships though I don’t really want to get into. I’m not a very open person so I keep things like that to myself but every now and then you’ll hear it in my songs,” says Keshore.

The artist got through most of these hardships by saying ‘”f*** it”, if they don’t love you somebody else will.”

Keshore likes to stay in regular contact with those that bring positivity to his life.

The Georgia artist describes himself as “weird.” However, as an artist, he likes to try and bridge different people, and things, so that people can cross them and be happy with their lives.

Keshore also explains how he got into music, and started his career.

The 18-year-old artist failed to get into a certain high school that he wanted and became depressed due to his failure to get in.

During this period, Keshore began to get into rap music during his freshman year [9th grade] of high school.

One of Keshore’s friend’s, an artist called “Not Cool,” also known as Byron, used to freestyle alongside Keshore. In 10th or 11th grade, Not Cool gave Keshore a beat to rap over, and Keshore fell in love with doing it and his voice.

However, Keshore didn’t take rapping seriously until 12th grade, which for him was only last year.

Keshore’s personal greatest achievement so far is getting the multiple millions of plays in which he has throughout his career.

“Gathering multiple millions of plays is a nice cushion of a confidence booster to sit on when I feel down. Let’s me know if I got this far I can go farther. Just needs more work,” says Keshore.

Regarding Keshore’s music schedule, he states that he searches for beats all day while working with super lowkey producers. Keshore then freestyles on a mic, or writes lyrics.

The artist comments that he is always writing, be it if he’s eating, about to have a shower, watching T.V, Keshore is always looking for inspiration and lyrics.

“I record as soon as I can then I mix and drop when I feel like it’s ready,” says Keshore.

The artist states that life around him, and his friends, are what gives him the inspiration to write certain lyrics or search for the right beats to capture and embody the right life experiences and emotions.

Keshore also comments that if he didn’t pursue music, he would have liked to pursue fashion.

The Georgia artist states that he was previously going to a fashion school before he left home. He was going to sign the papers to enrol before he disappeared and ran away from home.

“If music never worked out, which I hope it does work out, I would pursue fashion,” says Keshore.

The 18-year-old artist also gives advice to readers.

Keshore states that it is important to be true to yourself.

“Make what you want. If that means being an industry plant, do that. If that means staying true to yourself and being as original as possible, do that.” says Keshore.

Keshore also states to make the music that you’ll be happy to leave behind as your legacy. The artist comments also to not cap [lie] as it will not get you anywhere.

Keshore states that at this moment he is looking to only work with his friends, and on himself.

The artist is also dropping a tape on the 21st of September. He will also be dropping some merchandise, and some leading songs with music videos.

Jah Darko- From EMPIRE To Building An Empire

Personalities

19-year-old Maryland artist Jah Darko speaks about his growing audience, his upbringing, their signing with EMPIRE Distribution, and more.

Let’s explore the artist’s mind, and story.


Jah Darko’s real name is Elijah, and the artist’s father previously, and currently, calls him “Jah,” as it is his nickname. The artist originally didn’t like the name, but once he grew up and realised the meaning behind the name, Darko grew fond of it.

Regarding the “Darko” aspect of his alias, it is because the artist’s favorite movie is “Donnie Darko.”

“This man [Donnie Darko] was just in the cut saving the world and no one knew. That’s fire to me,” says the artist.

The artist was originally born in Baltimore, Maryland, but moved to Los Angeles, California, for primary school.

However, the artist moved back to Maryland and settled in Montgomery County, for high school. The artist has lived there since.

Darko comments on his childhood being composed of moving back and forth between LA and Maryland. The artist’s mother lives in Maryland, and his father lives in LA.

“I got to see two completely different worlds at a young age. Constantly having to adapt. I’m grateful for it,” says the Maryland artist.

The artist also states that they’ve been alienated by people who were once their best friend, due to Darko’s success. The 19-year-old artist also had many people doubt him, as well as his own self-doubt.

“I learned to use that as motivation though and its kept me going,” says the artist.

Darko describes himself as a “nerd.”

He is a gamer whose console of choice is Playstation. Darko also watches anime, and “occasionally” makes music. The artist says that although he doesn’t release music often when he does he ensures it’s his best work.

The artist also recently signed to EMPIRE Distribution, a record label and distribution company located in San Francisco, with offices in New York and Atlanta as well. Darko comments that this is his greatest personal achievement thus far, and readers can expect more frequent music releases and content from him.

“I’m working with a few big producers I think my fans will be excited about,” says Darko.

The artist also believes that joining Empire Distribution was a good choice for himself as he is happy with what the label has done for artists Kendrick Lamar and XXXTentacion in the past.

“I felt like it was the right fit,” says the Maryland artist.

Darko also comments on how he began his musical career. The artists’ father was a major influence on him and always was in the studio with his friends making music. Darko’s father also incorporated the artist in his music, and began the artist’s musical career.

“I remember recording and making little music videos when I was like 4. It’s always been in my life,” says the artist.

Darko also could never see himself pursuing another career path, as music has been all that Darko has known his whole life.

The artist’s other influences include Captial Steez, Michael Jackson, Lil Uzi Vert, and Nujabes.

The Maryland artist also wishes to become an influence for those in the music industry to be the “best they can be and follow their dreams.”

The artist also comments that their musical creation process is random and spontaneous.

Darko can go months without making music, and then produce new content daily.

“I made my new song Palm Trees right after I got this Basquiat tattoo on my arm. It gave me some sort of inspiration and as soon as I got home I started recording,” says Jah Darko.

The artist also gives advice to those in the industry. He stresses that visuals are incredibly important, as is being yourself and doing whatever feels right for you.

“Success will come,” says the Maryland artist.

Darko states that right now he is not looking to work with anyone new as he is focusing on improving himself and his craft.
