Hello everyone and welcome to Episode Eight of Sounds of Tomorrow presented by the ReRackNetwork. In this episode, we had the opportunity to interview one of the West Coasts’ hottest up and coming producers… Black$hear.
*Stay tuned each week for a brand new interview with up and coming producers/artists.*
Black$hear is currently a 20-year-old college student who was born in Portland, Oregon, but now resides in Riverside, California. Throughout High School Black$hear always had an interest in music as he was in concert band and drumline, but due to basketball he had to choose one or the other and he chose hoops. Eventually, in college, he was introduced to the idea of creating/producing music by friends in college Now, this may sound shocking with the amazing songs you may have heard from Black$hear, but he just began making music less than two years ago.
Black$hear’s music can be found on all streaming platforms. On SoundCloud, he has more than 200K total plays, a majority of the views coming from his hit song, “Uno” featuring LYD, Selemoh, and A1 The Great. On SoundCloud, Black$hear currently has 54 followers on his account and the followers will just continue to rise as people find out more about him. On Spotify, as we say for all upcoming artists that the numbers aren’t always solid, he currently has 70 monthly listeners, but mark my words, people… When everyone finds out who Black$hear is, his numbers are going to INCREASE EXPONENTIALLY! To produce the type of music he is creating/producing with less than two years under his belt is absurd. HE IS DESTINED TO BLOW UP!
Ultimate Goal as an Producer
“As a producer, I want to be the best producer in California and the world eventually. Even in year two, I’m making greater strides than artists that have been doing music longer than I have. I want to land bigger placements with bigger label artists.”
The Future: 2020 Vision & Beyond
Black$hear shared with the ReRackNetwork that he has a plethora amount of projects on his hands. Some of them include:
- BLACK$HEAR X LYD: SHOCK THE WORLD
- ILLBOYZ: YEAR OF THE BOYZ
- A1 THE GREAT X BLACK$HEAR: BLACK$HEAR THE GREAT
- Ella Mai (IAMSU’s song)
And many more to come very soon.
“[At the end of the year] I see myself emerging into the music game as a rising producer with many credible artists under my belt.”
