Meet HeyDeon

Today we’d like to introduce you to HeyDeon.

Deon, before we jump into specific questions about your work, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
In 2014, I began to carve out a name for himself among the hip hop scene. I started to become an increasingly favorable artist amongst the generation of tastemakers changing the face and sound of future hip hop. Deeply rooted in Long Beach, California, I showcased how my West Coast ties is the foundation of my music. As time passed I began to experiment more with sonics and my voice. I instantly started creating the music I tend to enjoy the most which is “Alternative”. Today, I embody the meaning of being yourself in music and not gearing towards the sound of your environment.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Nothing in life is smooth, we all face adversity. It is what makes us who we are today as people. I believe in learning from situations and passing it along to others who have similar battles. In the beginning of my music career, I was in a sense recreating a nostalgic feeling within my music until someone I appreciate the most told me I did not have to do that. I could be creative and free as possible and now I am here today.

Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I am a singer-songwriter. I am known for being a unique black artist from Long Beach, CA. I am most proud of being able to spread love and share my experiences with the world. The ability to be vulnerable and honest within my music. I understand that I am not alone and there are others out there that have experienced similar issues in life. Being myself is what set me apart from others, individuality is key to success.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I would not start over or do anything differently. God has a plan for me and I’m just taking it day by day.
