Today we’d like to introduce you to Zaleb Brown.
Zaleb, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I always had a passion for music growing up, but I always sang privately. It wasn’t until 2017 I started singing publicly. I never thought I had what it takes to make it in this industry because I had a stutter, but it was my friends and family that pushed me to pursue this career. I sang my first cover “When we were Young” by Adele and put it on YouTube. When I shared it with the world, the positivity and love I received was overwhelming and I started realizing I had a gift. My covers began getting hundreds of thousands of views and eventually topped 1 million. In 2018, I started working with my brother Jdagr8 and we released our first song together. I started learning more about the industry, like the production end of it. I released my first single “Projection” in December 2019.
Has it been a smooth road?
I struggle with self-confidence. One part of it is because I was bullied in high school, as much as I tried to fit in. Another part is because I’m my worst critic, and am always criticizing myself. Speaking with a stutter growing up hurt my self-esteem and I still fight with thoughts of “I’m not good enough to make it”.
Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I am an independent artist. My specialty is my vocals. I also help other artists build up their platforms by helping them with self-promotion. I think what sets me apart is that I’m not in this all for myself. I believe we’re a community of artists who should be helping each other out, and I try to represent that in my own artistry.
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
I have been saying this from day one that LA is the place for music. I tell so many people in the same profession that I am in, that you gotta make that move out here. Singers musicians, actors, models this is the one stop city for everything. I can’t stress this out enough. I encourage all upcoming aspiring artists to relocate to Los Angeles, California.
