Ecksell // Don’t tell me the sky’s the limit when there’s footprints on the moon.

Q1: If you had the opportunity to get an inspiring message across to a large number of people, what would your message be? 

A1: My message would be no matter who you are, where you come from, your race or religion, you can achieve your dreams, its all a mindset with positive thought comes positive outcomes, dedication, vision, and persistence, believe, achieve, receive, is key, my favourite saying ‘Don’t tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon’

Q2: How did you get started with your music? And if you weren’t an artist/musician what would you want to be doing?

A2: I was born in a musical family my dad being a rhythm guitarist in a small reggae band and both my sister singers, even though this was not my preferred style of genre, I was intrigued by the creative process of making music and how it made me feel and act, the vibrations from different sounds and frequencies, I started off mimicking artist like Dr drew, snoop dog eminem’s songs and relealized there was more to it it was a story a life a journey and the artist was expressing this through sound, I had to try this myself , I spent most my time locked away in my room with a pair of headphones on going through endless instrumentals trying to find a sound a style that raised my vibration I was young at the time but very aware of the energies, a few likeminded friends shared the same interest and we would spend most our time in the playground doing rap freestyle cyphers etc, loved the feeling of the energy exchanged through music.

Q3: What or who keeps you motivated and inspires you?

A3: The only person that keeps me motivated is myself n Kim no one tells me to wake up in the morning giving me orders on what I have to do by the end of the day as I am my own boss , the passion stems from wanting to also help artist on their journey and also the want for change and a positive future for the music industry,
