Q&A with Mosez X
Q: Your new music has more R&B influences. Can you tell our readers about the evolution of your style?
MOSEZ X: I can say my style originated in church. I really enjoy listening to people that voice forces emotions out of you and to me there’s no genre of music that does that more than gospel. I’m also a huge hip-hop fan, so wordplay is important to me. Those two genres really evolved my style, and help me become a better artist.
Q: You’re from New Orleans, a city with a rich musical heritage. Has the
city’s legacy and vibrance influenced your sound?
MOSEZ X: The city has definitely shape my sound. New Orleans is a city full of emotions. When people love here they love hard, but when they don’t like you, they let it be known. Everything in New Orleans has emotion; the music, the color of houses, down to the food, so you can be inspired to write something just by walking down the street.
Q: You’ve put out a number of releases in 2021- what has been your recent
MOSEZ X: Really just locking in. Lights off, headphones on, and let the music itself tell me what to write.
Q: Is there anything specific that you hope your listeners get from your music?
MOSEZ X: The main thing I hope listeners get from my music is my ability to relate to everyday situations. I don’t think anyone is special when it comes down to the test of life and love. We all go through our trials and triumphs, hopefully, anything that I’ve been through can help the next person through music.
Q: As the world returns to normal, what is up next for you?
MOSEZ X: I have the video premiere for my single “Pull Up” dropping soon & a new Ep dropping in the month of June. I also drop a visual remix to different songs every Friday on Instagram and YouTube so listeners can expect a lot of content coming from me for the rest of the year.
I plan on moving around a lot too, going to different cities, and networking.
To any listener out there thank you for giving me your ear & to you, thank you for having me on your platform.
