Skilly: Tell us where this all began. What is your history in the music scene?
CoreyDreamz: I started writing music when I was in 3rd grade, but wouldn’t let anyone hear any songs until I wrote my first single “Freshman Orientation.” I have two singles, “Cali Girl” and “Faded,” playing on radio stations all over the US and Canada.

What are the best ways to promote yourself as an artist? Any tips you can give us?
My best tip is to never give up, even when some people are skeptical of your success just focus on what you want to do and accomplish your goals.

What do you ultimately want to become in your career?
I want to be a role model, successful, and someone to prove that anything is possible through hard work and dedication. Being recognized in public, signing autographs, and taking pictures with people is cool but it’s the look on people’s faces when they meet me that makes me want to keep getting bigger.

What is the hardest thing about being in the music business?
Time is definitely a hard part about the music business because time is precious and music is demanding. I always have something to do music wise and not much free time. Friends will ask if I want to hangout, go to the movies, or something but I’m always in the studio recording or working on new material.

What is it like in your city? What is the music scene like, and how is it like living there overall?
I live in Huntington, WV with a population of around 48,000. It’s a city filled with history and a place where most people know each other. The music scene for hip hop here is pretty nonexistent because there’s no venues to perform at. It’s definitely hard to get heard in the city but it doesn’t stop me from doing what I love.

What are some of advice you can give and share to other artists who are still trying to come up?
Never let anyone tell you that you can’t succeed. You can do anything you set your mind to with hard work. Keep making the music you love and you’ll be successful. Not everyone is going to like your music, you just have to look past those opinions and not let them get to you.

What is the best thing that’s ever happened in your career?
Hearing my song on the radio for the first time was probably the best thing because I never thought it would happen. I grew up listening to music on the radio every day, so hearing myself was shocking but also rewarding. Seeing that my hard work was starting to pay off made me push harder.

What is your inspiration?
I’d have to say my biggest inspiration is my exes. I learn something from every relationship and always write my best songs after a break up. I’m also very inspired by females in general. Most of my songs are me talking about a female in different ways, usually describing their beauty and body motions that as a guy’s perspective we find attractive.

Do you feel anyone can be successful now in today’s world of music?
I think so, yeah. As long as you never give up and are able to push through the criticism, I feel you can do anything you want with music. So many people nowadays turn to music for different things whether it’s for emotional reasons, cruising on road trips, or just sitting around the house. Music is used in everyday life. -
