What inspires you the most when you create? What inspires me to create is knowing that in some way shape or form I can touch someone’s life thru my music. If I am able to make someone feel emotions thru music I feel like I have done my job as an artist. Some people define art as creating a reaction from the viewer. That’s what I aim to do. I’d also like to be a voice for people who are going thru hard times. I hope that people can come to me or my music as a way to confide. I am inspired by everyday people who are just like me. We are all humans that bleed and feel emotion.
Who are your top 5 influences? Musically my top 5 influences in no order are LOVEONFRIDAY- one of the most underrated artist to date. His melodies are crazy. He has put me on so much knowledge and is one of the most genuine people I know. Trevor Daniel- man has never made a bad song and I’ve heard rumors that he shits out melodies and lyrics for breakfast. But fr tho he is a huge inspiration to me from the music he makes to the way he moves about his business. Trippie redd- he is so versatile which is why he will be relevant forever. He influences me to push the boundaries between hip hop and alternative styles Christopher Drew- I like the way he can accurately paint a picture of how he feels into a song. Radiohead- influences me to say things in my songs that allow the listener to make sense of it themselves
When are your new projects coming out? I’m sitting on a lot of music at the moment. I plan to drop singles until I build the demand for a full length project. Anyone who wants to keep up with my upcoming music can follow me on IG
@vino.tarantino or twitter @vinotarantino for updates on that.
What helped you get into music? I got into music because a friend of mine got some recording equipment when we were about 15. We started ripping beats off soundcloud and recording vocals over them not really knowing what we were doing. Fast forward to now and I’ve learned so much and figured out exactly what I want from music.
What is one thing you would tell your fans? One thing I would tell my fans is that they are more than fans to me. We are family. I am nothing without the people who support me. Everyone rocking with me is in for a long ride. I promise I won’t let y’all down.
What are your biggest goals for 2019? My biggest goal for 2019 is to continue growing a solid fan base organically. At the moment I have no labels or public figures pushing me. My fans are rocking with me because they enjoy my music, not because they are told to like me. Another goal for 2019 is to work with more producers in the industry. I’m excited to show everyone how versatile I can be and I believe working with different producers is a great way to hone into different styles and sounds. Also I strive to spread positivity and love. Life is to short to be a hating ass bitch. Let’s enjoy the time we have on this earth and leave with an everlasting impact. Much love- Vino
