Interview with AvenueN9ne

Today, we sat down with AvenueN9ne to talk about music inspiration, advice for musicians and much more! Be sure to check out his music below after the interview!


What is your inspiration to write your music? Is it your

The inspiration for my music is life. My pain, my past, my truth, everything. The things I have a hard time saying, come out in my music. I didn’t have the best upbringing and I was in a lot of pain for a long time because of it. My emotional intelligence was practically nonexistent, but when it comes to music though, its like the emotional intelligence came out so naturally. I do not think when it comes to music. Everything is based on a feeling. Emotional intelligence is by far the thing that has taken me the furthest, but it has also held me back. Music gave me that bridge to understanding it.
What type of music did you listen to growing up?
I listened to a ton of different genres of music. Some of my favorite artists growing up were MJ, Avril Lavigne, Adele, Kid Cudi, and A Day To Remember. I never wanted to limit myself to what I should listen to or what I shouldn’t. If it made me feel something, I was gonna listen to it. I know A Day To Remember is kinda weird after hearing the music I make. However, in high school, during some of my worse days bands like them got me through.
Is there someone you looked up as a hero?
I have three heroes in my story and they are my two aunts and my grandmother. Without them, simply put I wouldn’t be here. They saved me in so many ways and made me the man I am.
If you weren’t a musician, what would you be doing today?
I would probably be working my way up in a company. I have been in a lot of different fields so I can’t say which one I would have stuck with honestly. Music has always been endgame. Music is really the only thing I ever saw myself doing. It sounds cliche, but music saved my life.
What advice do you have for our fans out there that want to create

Be your truest self. In every way. Don’t worry about if people are going to like it. Everyone is always going to have an opinion, make the music you love and stand ten toes. All you can give to anything is 100 percent, but how can you put 100 percent into it, if you are spending your time pretending.
