Interview: C.A. Brown
Your new project “King’s Testimony” is gaining a mean buzz not just based on your historical grind and roll out for this project, but the music in general. How does it feel and what’s the overall reaction?
The feedback that i have been receiving from the project has been dope to say the least! The album is being regarded as a classic and i have been compared to the greats which is surreal to me im still taking it all in!
Tell us about the name change from “Trigga Trend” and the growth into who “C.A. Brown” is becoming?
Trigga Trend is a former version of myself where my content was focused on the streets. C.A Brown is who i am today! I chose to go with C.A. Brown because my content is more personal now as it show all aspects of my life so i chose to go with my real name instead of hiding behind a character!
The music videos have also stepped up, tell us about your process with creating your visuals and how precise you are about quality control etc.
I am very particular about my visuals these days. I try to make sure the treatment matches the energy of the song. It is important to me for the visual to bring the song to life!
What would you say the music game is lacking?
Right now the music game lacks substance and emotion. This is the void i plan to fill.
Tell us who you worked with on your latest project producer and feature wise and what were your own favorites?
I worked with 2 producers on this project, DJ pain 1 and ILL Brown. As far as features i worked with Beadz, K love the poet, Ike the writa, Tony Rush, Alonda Rich, Tina G, and Brian Hill. My personal favorite collaboration was probably Colorful Vibrations prod by ILL Brown feat K love the poet and Brian Hill.
How do you feel social media has impacted the business?
As an independent artist i feel like social media is a great thing. When used properly we have the ability to connect with our audience and monetize our brands without needing a major label.
Thusfar, what has been the best advice you’ve been given?
The best advice i have been given is to remain consistent with content. As an independent artist it is important to keep the attention of your audience!
What is one message you would give to your supporters?
To my supporters i want you to know that this is only the beginning for me. I plan to bring quality content and meaningful music every time i release.
What’s next for C.A. Brown in 2021?
Be on the lookout for more visuals as i plan to release one for every song on the project. Also you can look forward to the deluxe album sometime in the near future!
