Zoe.L Shares Insights on Her Musical Journey

After Zoe.L’s Caravan’s exceptional single was released, we caught up with an insightful interview with such a talented artist to explore her eidetic experience and what she had to say about her incredible musical journey so far. Read below to learn some interesting details about Zoe.L

What draws you to your preferred genre?

I Want Them All track is about exploring all genres. And that’s the way I feel. I don’t want to be put in a box. I want to be free to express myself outside of the confines of any one genre.

“Friend” is captivating from the start to finish with a combination of unique beats and catchy lyrics. What was the inspiration behind the single?

I saw my female friends being done dirty by boys and the rumors were making the rounds through the grapevine. I enjoy the narrative arc of storytelling and easily find a voice for that as a singer-songwriter. I like to write about what I know even though second-hand experience.

Which one of your songs has the most memorable story for you? Whether it’s the writing process, recording sessions or release of the song.

I would have to say I Want Them All. I have African, Jamaican, Cuban roots. My ancestors escaped Castro’s Cuba by immigrating to Jamaica. “Mi mamá pretty and she pray for mi” is a line that carries me through as I suffered a gruesome fourth-degree burn in quarantine and needed surgery to cut the burn out, then they pulled the skin on both sides of my leg and sewed it together. I was left with a six-inch scar running down my left knee. It broke me open. I never experienced that kind of pain in my life. That’s when I went to explore Reggae-pop as well as Dancehall after focusing on Pop-rap-hip hop and R&B.

Are you working independently or with any production house or recording label?

Phillip G. Henry was the only person in history to play a guitar solo on a worldwide Billboard number one song: Angel by Shaggy Featuring Rayvon. Philip is my director of music and I thank God for sending a multi-instrumentalist musician who has literally played on thousands of records, as an industry veteran. He guides me like a Godfather.   My management team is an indie Canadian start-up Label, and I am the only artist signed to their roster so they on my career and invest in me while offering à la carte label services for independent artists.

If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be?

I dream of collaborating with SAWEETIE, Drake and Rihanna because I appreciate their artistic grind.

What is one message you would give to your fans?

I want my fans to know that no matter how young you may be, you can do whatever you set your mind to because creativity is not based on age it is God-given.

Thank you for speaking with us! For our final question, is there anything else you would like to add?

Yes. Please help me to assemble my international Dance Delegation for I Want Them All. And I’m searching the world for a feature artist for the remix. Check out LibbyRecords.com.

When the Streets Called, Hip-Hop Whiz Daraja Hakizimana, Known as $TYLJA, Answered With a Game-Changing Masterpiece, “MVP (Mix 1)”

Painting the intricacies of his own musical canvas with multiple colors is the producer, rapper, songwriter, and singer Daraja Hakizimana aka $TYLJA from Houston, Texas, and a proud member and contributor of “My Block Recordz,” a Houston-based indie label known for transforming the dreams of so many upcoming art creatives into reality. As a producer, Daraja has a knack for creating infectious beats and haunting melodies that tell deep and relatable stories. He released the 12-track album “MVP (Mix 1),” which received critical acclaim, with many applauding his production skills and competency to tell stories with mere beats.

“Shut That Trap” brings life to the beat with its ethereal vocal layers, sirens, and other distinct additions to elevate its appeal to stunning heights. The production fits the right merit for those introspective listening experiences, seeing that it has not been overdone and is still expressive in its own captivating ways. A fine balance has been achieved here between atmospheric appeal and laid-back melodicism.

With “Back To Work,” the stripped back foundation serves as an earworm for anyone listening and serves as an exceptional accompaniment for morning drives to work. The beat feels special and soothes the soul as well as warming the heart.

The song “Practice” gains depth and intensity from the famous quote by Allen Iverson, “I mean, listen, we’re talking about practice, not a game, not a game, not a game, we talking about practice. Not a game” sampled over the exquisite production.

Featuring eye-catching NBA clips, the music video for “Majic” elevates the jam to epic heights as you enjoy the music and get fascinated by the killer moves and dunks being unleashed by the players. This is a music clip that captivates and holds your attention.

Throughout this album, $TYLJA continues to showcase such production excellence with some otherworldly music in “We Outside,” “After The Game,” “Gang Gang,” and “She Needs To Go.”

The collection stands as a work of art, akin to a musical hall of fame (if it exists!)

After the long day you’ve just had, you deserve to listen to some good music, and $TYLJA offers just that with “MVP (Mix 1)”

The streets were calling and this is how Daraja Hakizimana answered the call—think of him as a musical Batman.
