Check out Earn Money’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Earn Money.

Earn Money, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I was born a Creative to a family full of creatives. It’s in my DNA, creation and the knack to enhance runs through me.

I was birth into my Earth Form on The Southside of Chicago, where I lived my life under the teaching of “it’s not where you live it’s how you live” these teachings always encouraged me from my mother and grandmother that the world is vast and it’s a lot to see and do so “Go far and go fast.” This ability to be free thinking and free in general molded me into the person I am today.

Since an early age, I was allowed to participate in many activities and anything that would drive my wild imagination. From martial arts to computer science. All of my life experiences are constantly reviewed by me personally and bottled into all of my work.

The Boys and Girls club as a kid changed my life along with the early introduction to different cultures opened my mind and taste level to an unending curiosity and inspiration for creation.

Fine arts like painting mainly was one of my first loves that transferred into a design which transformed into music songwriting and production. These gifts slowly developed all throughout my teens while excelling as a student and all American/collegiate athlete early on. At this point, I am refined in several different trades (painting, fashion design, graphic design, sound engineering, sound design, music production, singer/songwriter to name a few). All of self-teaching and have invested over 10,000 hours into three of the several.

I accredit much inspiration to the undying eternal student within. This undying eternal student has a quest for all knowledge and Research of thing inspirational.

Outside of creation as an art form, I’m recognized by the general populous as an International DJ (which is what I’m most noteworthy for). But I have so many behind the scene accolades to mention but I shall not see as it’s only more accolades to accomplish and I have tunnel vision towards those.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
My art form and main focus at the moment is “digivibe.”

“Digivibe” is a genre of music I have created and cultivated the sound for over four years. The first project that I will be releasing displaying this sound as a whole is a self-titled project “Digivibe” releasing on all music streaming platforms September 21st, 2018.

The second part of the digivibe sound is my second LP titled “yesterday @ 7:12 AM” that will be releasing October 19, 2018.

Being the multiverse artist that I am I hope that you understand my focus as mentioning solely my genre of music as my art form. Because I have a lot of different projects in the works and it can be a bit too much to centralize the focus of others at times when you have so many things going on. Because at the end of the day my art form is “creation” in multi mediums.

The message of my artwork/art forms is that you are infinite and ideas and creation are infinite. 💧

What do you think it takes to be successful as an artist?
Well, I think that the role and responsibilities of an artist have always been a highly important role. Artist is the ones with the vision to see the change and spark the inspiration for the change. Artist has to dive deep inside and realize what is being communicated. Art can communicate things that no languages could ever speak. For instance, I can’t speak Portuguese but Baile Funk music communicates something to my body that will drive me to dance uncontrollably. This is a small example of the level of communication within the art.

My focus within art is communicating steps we will take to evolve into the future and become higher beings and as I constantly work towards being a higher being myself the discussion of what that takes and what that looks like is my constant. This type of focus, in my opinion, is one of the only things that will push us past the things that keep holding us as mankind in the past.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
