We have quite a treat for all the ladies out there looking for some real R&B/Soul music. Walter Devon is the next best thing to have emerged in our music playlist. Just remember you heard it here first Walter Devon is up next to blow.
FROST: How is it going, Walter? Thank You for taking the time to interview with us it is a pleasure.
Sang2em: Excited man! Everything is going well, things are coming together.
FROST: For those who don’t know who you are, please don’t make them wait any longer and introduce yourself.
Sang2em: Yo! I go by first name middle, Walter Devon upcoming artist out of Long Beach.
FROST: Now you just dropped a Vol. 1 EP “Sang2em,” and I have to say this body of work you put together is straight FIRE. Tell our readers what does it take to put out quality music?
Sang2em: Thank you! Much appreciated! Hard work pretty much, long nights early mornings. In regards to what it takes for great quality it’s about having a great team who believe in your vision. It’s a lot that goes into putting a project together so that was very helpful to me having a solid team who all contributed. In regards to the process, it starts with a goal. My goal on this project was to capture a solid vibe and reintroduce myself to my audience. So from setting a goal, you take it from there and then move forward with track selection, writing, etc.
FROST: Is there a new project dropping? What can your fans expect from Walter Devon in the future?
Sang2em: I’m actually in the process of switching lanes a little bit, I’m working on a few singles, some will be uptempo, more current styles of music now, which will dictate the flow of the next project…so stay locked in with me.
FROST: What are your thoughts on the current state of R&B/Soul as a genre?
Sang2em: It’s definitely different…not in a bad way as I believe every generation has there time for certain vibes, but in regards to the music I grew up on listening to Tank, Jamie, Case, Avant, etc it’s not enough singing if you ask me, more rap singing if you will.. Being said I do think music has a way of coming full circle.
FROST: Do you see yourself staying in the realm of R&B/Soul or trying other genres in the future?
Sang2em: I love R&B I wouldn’t want to be boxed into a specific genre, I really just want to make timeless music…. so rather R&B/Pop I’m pretty open if it makes sense
FROST: What is the secret to keeping your voice healthy and controlled? Would you recommend vocal coaching or anything else?
Sang2em: Vocal training Id say. You have to continue to work on perfecting your craft and learning new creative things about your skills.
FROST: What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not making music?
Sang2em: Play 2k…I’m kinda viscous…
FROST: If you had the opportunity to collaborate with any artist throughout the industry dead or alive who would it be and why?
Sang2em: Michael Jackson. The greatest to do it.
FROST: If I were to go through your playlist right now, what 3 artists would I see in your most recently played list?
Sang2em: My guy Eric Bellinger, Tank, and Chris Brown.
FROST: What kind of advice can you give an artist trying to pursue a music career?
Sang2em: Keep grinding through the No’s…
FROST: Lastly, are there any shout-outs that you want to throw out there?
Sang2em: Shoutout to HitBangaz, Seantu and Big Yacc
