  • How long have you been a musician? What age did you begin? What motivated you to become a musician?
    • Chance Primo: In all reality I started creating music in 2009, that’s when I recorded my very first legitimate track, “BOW DOWN.” However, I feel that it is imperative to voice that I have been creating my own songs spontaneously ever since I was old enough to sit on the toilet. I had always enjoyed music while growing up, no matter what kind it was I cud always find a way to entertain myself with it. The real motivation to pursue my talent and create music although came to me in desperate times in my life. I was 21 years old and had nothing to call my own due to an abundant amount of mistakes I had made around that time, to sum up the details I was homeless. It was only then while battling alcoholism that I realized the importance of my talent and how I could use it to stay sober. Realizing that an idle hand is the devils best friend is what truly motivated me to put my time and effort into writing music.

    • Chance Primo: Growing up I found myself surrounded by people that all had different tastes in music. The community in which I was raised I would have to say generally influenced me to listen to the genres of hip hop, R&B and rap music. Bone thugs n Harmony, Biggy Smalls, Eminem and 2pac were among my favorite artists when I was young. My family as well as friends on the other hand also had a helping part in broadening my music interests by introducing me to the likes of alternative, rock, reggae, techno, country, and pop. For examples; Nirvana, A/C D/C, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, ATB, Infected Mushroom, Kenny Chesney, and Michael Jackson were all popular selections at one point in time. Still though with this said, my heart and passion for music no doubt lies within rap/hip-hop/r&b music and because of this I have focused on these areas of music but that will not limit me to experiment with others in the future.
