The Urban Twinz
1. Where are we talking from today?
A. We are talking from the Island of Barbados.
2. Where did you get your artist name from?
A. Our artist’s name was created based on the genre of music we have chosen, our style of fashion & us being a twin.
3. Music wise what are you working on right now? Are you currently promoting a single or album?
A. We are currently promoting our new single and also working on our next music project which is scheduled to be released in August of this year.
4. Who or what were the most significant influences on your musical life and career?
A. Firstly, we were influenced by the artist Rihanna who is also from Barbados and as teenagers watching her grow in the industry, we decided to pursue singing after realizing we also have a passion for it. As we began singing in the hotel circuit and at events, we were always encouraged to become independent artists. As we are from the Caribbean, we are also influenced by the artist Tyga, due to the style of music and videos he produces.
5. Who are your favorite musicians?
A. Our favorite musicians are Rihanna, Tyga, Migos, Cardi B & Gucci Mane.
6. What have been the greatest challenges/frustrations of your career so far?
A. Our greatest challenges are financing our music projects, finding the right streams to promote our music to America & the rest of the world and gaining global exposure. In Barbados, the culture is Soca & Calypso music, so it’s very difficult to gain recognition as a HipHop/Rap, Pop or RnB artist while promoting your music here. This is why we would like to move to America where our music will be greatly supported.
7. As a musician, what is your definition of success?
A. Our definition of success as musicians is creating great music and doing what we love. Making money isn’t our number one priority right now but in doing what we love, it will come. Living our dream as artists who are making a mark in the music industry is our true definition of success.
8. What is your idea of perfect happiness?
A. To us, there’s no such thing as perfect happiness, however, happiness to us is becoming financially stable and becoming an award-winning artist someday.
9. What is your present state of mind?
A. Our present state of mind is working on writing and releasing new music. Our music is our number one priority and we are constantly researching new streams in which we can promote our music globally. This is our main focus.
10. What is your most treasured possession?
A. At this point we do not value material things, however, our phones and laptop would be considered our most treasured possessions as these are the devices we use every day to promote our brand as artists.
11. What do you enjoy doing most?
A. We enjoy performing (whenever we get the opportunity) and also creating vlogs and videos. We enjoy dancing and anything relating to entertainment.
12. Where would you like to be in 10 years’ time?
A. In 10 years, we would like to be successful artists in the industry and living our dream. We would also like to be able to travel the world someday. We would also like to have collaborated with our favorite artists and be known globally.
13. Where you @ online?
A. We are on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Spotify, Itunes & Soundcloud.
