Today we’d like to introduce you to Warren Wright.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
LOOOOOOONG STORY. During my first semester at FIT, I took an internship at Condé Nast at Glamour Magazine n. After that, I started working in Retail during college for smaller brands but worked my way up to working for designers like Vera Wang and Prada. At the same time, I did freelance styling jobs, worked at creative agencies when I wasn’t in retail, and built up my understanding of the industry. That was all by 2014-2015.
I first discovered LA when I came out here for NBA All Star Weekend in 2018. Made some connections and loved the opportunities I wasn’t getting in NY. Then after styling a music artist is what got me further into actually producing. Released my first project, a 2 song instrumental EP called Almost There on Spotify + Apple Music. Then last year I released a deluxe version.
I love the unlimited potential of unlocking your creativity that comes with producing; I’d say I like experimenting with any genre, but what I make I think is very different from what I listen to, which is R&B and Hip Hop.
The project I’m working on now however, is more in tune to what I listen to.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I think really having a focus and learning from your mistakes will help you creates a stable path towards the next level for you, whatever that may be. I think it was tricky at first when I was back and forth between NY and LA, but one must go where the money reside!
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
Currently, I’m producing music under the name 89K. I’ve released a couple of singles, but primarily instrumental R&B / Hip-Hop. I’m working on another project this year but it won’t be instrumental. I also have my own clothing brand, Subrosah.com. Working on the 2nd collection now, which is denim. I’ll still keep the joggers and shorts up on the site since they’re more casual.
What has been the most important lesson you’ve learned along your journey?
To not listen to what others say; and to do what’s best for you.
