Who is Moslikely give us a brief summary about yourself and your artistry?
i’m a hustler, and I’m passionate about art. Even outside of music. I’ve been making music since I was young, but I quit when I moved from downtown Albany to the Bronx. When I got here, I designed clothing and got into photography, graphic design and modern art. Over the last few years I’ve had the privilege of writing music for some really talented artists, and I couldn’t stay away.
Who and what has been has influenced your sound, and your overall aesthetic?
I’m a big fan of everything going on up north. The Toronto/Canadian trap-soul type movement could go down as the best sub genre in music with how versatile it’s becoming. I’m a part of the generation who grew up on Drake, and growing up I listened to a ton of The Weeknd, PartyNextDoor, Tory Lanez, Bryson, all that. I think right now my favorite artist would be FRVRFRIDAY.
I see from your Soundcloud that you are from The Bronx, New York how has that area influenced you as an artist?
Living in the Bronx has allowed me to broaden my horizons and live and feel new things and I couldn’t be happier about it. Although when you hear of an artist from NY people get caught up in asking if the artist represents that vintage NY sound, I think since getting here listening and connecting with local talent has made me try things with my music I never would of thought. I feel like creativity is in the tap water here.
Who have you worked with, and how was the experience so far connecting and working in the industry?
I’ve worked with some larger profile artists when it comes to writing records for them over the last year or so but I’m still waiting for that big collab myself. You’ll see my name sprinkled over some writing credits throughout next year.
You seem to be very lowkey social media like you want to draw the audience in to lean more, how has this strategy worked?
I wouldn’t say it’s a strategy, I just like to be lowkey. My team we call ourselves the C0, the lowest key on a Piano. Although I’m passionate about style, if you asked any of my friends they’d say I’m happiest in a hoodie and sweats and grinding away from the spotlight.
Who are some of the artists you are looking forward to working with as you make your way higher into the music industry?
I’ve had an opportunity to link with The Weeknd and I think that one day me and him will make a hit. I’d love to work with Tory, FRVRFRIDAY, A Boogie.
What's your long term plan, ultimately where are you planning to go as a musician?
I wanna be able to live doing what I love. I’d love to be a superstar but at the end of the day I wanna provide for my family while doing something I’m passionate about. I don’t want to just make music either, I wanna act, direct, write a book, design clothing, and one day own a production company.
Do you have any new projects on the way, and what can we expect from you in the near future?
My debut EP “Arrival” is coming soon we’re just getting some of the finishing touches together as we speak and then we’ll go handle the business side. It’s coming soon.
