Today we’d like to introduce you to HowFlyy.
Hi HowFlyy, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I am from Paso Robles, CA and I am a recording artist, songwriter, producer, business owner and entrepreneur a true jack of all trades. I have been pursuing music for as long as I can remember but got my real first start in the small college city of Chico, CA around 2012 where I am recording and dropped my first mixtape titled “2 Damn Flyy” on datpiff.com (that I recorded on Garageband in my bedroom) which to my surprise generated about 100k views and downloads with no type or promo or anything it just happened. I then went on to drop three more mixtapes generating a little buzz on SoundCloud and booked myself two summer tours where I linked with the LA-based collective Long Haul Music Group and started doing music business with them. By the time I graduated college, I packed a backpack and hit the road to Los Angeles and worked my way through studios and networking for three and half years to where we are today with over half a million streams as well as views and owning a brand new full-functioning creative factory In North Hollywood called “The Arcade Los Angeles”.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I think being a creative especially coming into LA as a newcomer is anything but smooth. The biggest struggles I faced, I would say we’re definitely trying to find my niche or where I fit in this huge scene of talented people. It takes a while to learn how to navigate and the dos and don’ts when presenting your ideas and music.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a recording artist, songwriter, producer, studio manager, business owner, brand manager, entrepreneur and influencer. I think I got them all? Lol, I mainly specialize in song-writing and artist development and have recently been tapped by labels to aid in the development of their newest acquired talent. I am mostly known for my SoundCloud freestyles and my two more popular tracks “Own 2” and “Pull Up’ I am proud of everything with my name attached to it. I’ve come a long, long way from recording in the basement! What I believe sets me apart from others is my unique voice and melodies. You know exactly who it is anytime a song of mine or one I have written starts to play.
What quality or characteristic do you feel is most important to your success?
I feel that authenticity and genuineness has allowed me to be successful this early in my career. It has opened up a lot of doors by just being myself and knowledgeable about music.
