Interview: Ellist

Artist Name: Ellist

New Song/Release Title: Starlight

Tell us something about you that fans should know:

As an artist I would say I'm doing good but I know I can do better. Even though I am maintaining a steady following, I know I have room to improve. I wouldn't consider myself to be the best up-and-coming artist in the game, in fact, I'm the total opposite. I just wanna keep doing me and if people like my sound then they like it, if they don't then they don't.

Where are you from and what’s the music scene like there?

I'm from the Seattle-Tacoma, Washington area and shoutout to all of the other small indie creators there as well! They've helped me and I've helped a lot of them get to get where we are today. Washington is not all that interesting, you may think that everyone is rich and it's really not the case at all, a lot of people have been homeless (including my family when I was like 2 or 3 years old). Mainly everyone listens to the music I create or to Lil Mosey or someone from Seattle, we're a really tight community.

How have your life experiences influenced your music?

A lot of people have tried to put me down and tell me what I can and can't do. Whenever I write a song, I usually reflect on my general mood or something that has happened in my life recently. Only sometimes do I rap about things that haven't really happened.

Who would you most like to collaborate with?
