Today we’d like to introduce you to Bris R.
Hi Bris, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Growing up, my great-grandmother was a music teacher at the church. And her daughter, my grandmother, was a pianist and a singer. She sang all over the world and I always thought that was pretty cool. Since they were so music-oriented, we had a piano, an organ and a closet full of instruments ever since I was a kid. Music was just always around. I never thought to pick up music. When my Granny tried to teach me how to play the piano, I wasn’t interested. I regretted it because now that I’m older, I wish I had that skill. I started to get into music around 2016 with my cousin & some of my roommates when I was away at school. It was just for fun though and I never intended to make a career out of it. Until around 2018 is when I decided that I would pursue a career in music.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Not at all. Nothing has been easy. A lot of people have a misconception that being a rapper or a musician in general is just going to the studio and making songs. There is much more that goes behind being an artist especially if you expect to execute at the highest level. I would say the hardest thing was starting out. And I feel like it’s that way with anything you pursue. When you first start, no one takes you serious and you have to really be persistent because you expect everything to go a certain way. That’s our human nature, but nothing goes the exact way you plan it in your head. Things will be thrown your way that you have no control over. For example, COVID was a big shock to us all. And I feel like it hit musicians the hardest. Not being able to go outside and perform is one of the biggest setbacks for artists. Still, you can’t use that as an excuse if you really want to be great.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I’m a rapper/songwriter. An artist to put it simply. The main thing that separates me from others is that I have a distinct way of using my voice and I feel like I balance all of the aspects of what rapping is. Lyrics I got that, melodies I can provide those too. Punchlines, witty phrases I kinda just say what comes to my mind. It’s all authentic. I would say I’m most known for my hook writing ability and I find it interesting because I never liked writing hooks. They felt tedious and I felt like I had to make a hook a certain way. But as I grew with my music, I learned from others that I can actually come up with really good hooks.
Alright so before we go can you talk to us a bit about how people can work with you, collaborate with you or support you?
I’m open to working and collaborating with anyone who takes their craft as serious as I take mines. You can hit me up on Instagram or Twitter @br2craze. You can send stuff to my email as well: email@example.com The best way to support me as an artist would be to purchase the music if you really like it. I will be producing merchandise as well very soon so that’s another way you can support. All the support is appreciated even if you just stream the project it’s all love.
