Life & Work with Dru Lira

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dru Lira.

Hi Dru, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Dru Lira is the name, I am a Musician Artist/Producer, and aspiring human being. Born and raised in Monrovia California. My journey starts out as a young child the earliest. I can remember being subconsciously aware of music and what it did for me then and what it still does now. I fell in love and I started to pick up little things here and there and as I got older I took it upon myself and start writing, rapping, singing and producing pretty much everything. I first went into the mindset and then lead to the craft and the business. I have been involved in music art fashion for ten plus years, made many milestone moments but still far from my biggest accomplishments. So now I am at a place where I have a great tenacity of my skills and knowledge so that the next years are my best and exciting years to come.

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?
It’s been a nonstop journey for myself and a few others around me many ups and downs along the way but I would say I’m in a better position than I was years ago so whatever I went through I manage to come out stronger than ever. always being misunderstood can be a burden but that’s art the beauty in the struggle is what makes it stand out and tasteful. one lesson learning obstacle I would say is being the first in my family to go after something more abundance than mid I’m breaking generational habit from previous into now taking control of my own narrative.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am an Artist/Producer, Musician aspiring human being. I specialize in creating music for a new generation that has never heard of someone like myself. what sets me apart from everyone is that I am a Mexican American Artist/Rapper/Singer that’s not gangster or emo I am just a laid back chill person but at the same time, I have a high philosophical to think in four detentions to better the human nation with my creative ideas and positive motivation inspiration. My music is influenced by artists such as Kanye West, Drake, Pharrell, Michael Jackson, Kid Cudi Dom Kennedy, Nipsey Hussle Hit Boy Etc. Outside of that my sound is a wide and versatile that comes from other genres very much genre-bending. I consider myself a student of the music world ii study everyone and every sound that’s how much passion I have to it. Every day picking up that brick to build my dreams into a reality.

We’d love to hear about any fond memories you have from when you were growing up?
As a kid, I used to watch movies, tv shows and play video games at the same time as listening to music a lot that would be my escape from reality didn’t have much friends, considered myself as an outcast from the rest. My fav shows would be Regular Show, and SpongeBob to just name a couple. Also just being from the LA area of California it’s something special that I have with my earliest memories here I’m blessed to be part of.
