Explain who you are for those who don’t know
My name is Brannon Cloy but I am known by my artist name B. Cloy. I am 20 years old and I am from Havana, Fl.
How did you come up with your name?
Funny story actually. So, I originally used my real name as my artist name but I found out there was already an artist under that stage name. So I decided to use my the initial from my name and combine it with my last name.
How long has music been a grind?
I have been working on music for a little over a year now. I’m relatively new to it but I love it!
When did it start?
It started around the summer of 2016. I realized I wanted to pursue music during my senior year of high school but I didn’t record my first song until January of 2017.
Who are influences to the struggle?
Some of my biggest musical inspirations are John Legend and Emeli Sandé. I love everything that they embody.
What is the motivation behind the grind?
Music. It’s the only thing I can see myself doing for the rest of my life. Nothing can ever replace it.
Talk to us about Looking For Love. How did it come about?
I came up with the title
What’s your favorite song from the project?
Crash and Burn
I put a lot into that song. It took me a while to write it because there was so much emotion behind it that I knew I had to take my time if I was going to create the song.
Do you think it’s your best work?
No. I think my best is yet to come. I’ve written a few songs in which I thought, “Man this is the one.” But I think I’m just getting started.
Define what HipHop is to you
Hip Hop is more than music. It’s culture, it’s struggle, it’s success. But mostly it’s a story and every artist is just another author who is contributing to the story.
What is in the works?
I’m currently working on releasing the music video for Crash and Burn. I’m also working on my next EP “Emotions pt. 1” which will be out in May.
What is your 5 year goals?
In 5 years, I see myself performing on tour and selling out shows. I also see myself as being one of the best artists in the music industry.
Anything else you would like to say?
It’s not always easy to follow your dreams and I know there are people right now who are doubting me, but I want those people and everyone else to know that I will be best.
