Inspiring Conversations with Isaiah Smith of Hood Saviors

Today we’d like to introduce you to Isaiah Smith.

Hi Isaiah, 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’ve always been involved in music from a young age, from a kid to starting out as a music major in college, it’s always impacted me. Once I realized I wasn’t looking forward to the typical 9-5 life, I started looking for avenues to succeed outside of that. I picked up marketing and worked with a couple of businesses while also on the side still enjoying and learning more about the rising music industry artists. I figured I could merge my marketing skills with my passion for music and find a lane there and… Enter: Hood Saviors. The music marketing group and spotlight for upcoming artists in the Carolinas and beyond.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It’s not been a rough road per say, but that doesn’t mean everything has went smooth so far. I have had a couple of challenges on the way that makes you look at everything a little bit differently. While I won’t get directly into the struggles, I will say you definitely need to make sure anyone you bring in has mutual interests or a common end goal. Besides that, I would say growth has been steady and consistent as has the progression.

As you know, we’re big fans of Hood Saviors. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
Hood Saviors is a music marketing group and blog owned by Isaiah Smith that focuses on helping putting shine on dope artists and helping them build a true, engaged and supporting fanbase.

I work with artists and their PR, marketing and promotion for their careers as artists, and I also manage. While there are other people who do this, I think what sets me apart is my goal to educate along the way. I always found pride in the fact that I’m usually always there to help artists out with whatever they may need. If I can’t help, someone in my network can and I have no problem picking up the assist.

I want everyone reading to know that if they need help getting press done (like this article), help marketing their music after a release, or looking for management (yes, I’m looking for one artist and producer) then they should contact me!

We love surprises, fun facts and unexpected stories. Is there something you can share that might surprise us?
One surprising thing y’all may not know is while I don’t currently play any instruments or produce, I definitely used too. I played drums since I could walk basically and as a music major in college, I definitely downloaded FL and Abelton (smh.. I know.) I cooked up a few beats with Greenville artist Khristoff98 in the summer of ’16. I look forward to one day getting back to producing, but for now I got other things to focus on.
