[box_dark]What is your name?[/box_dark] B.DeVINE
[box_dark]Where are you from?[/box_dark] Jacksonville, Florida or as the locals call it…Duuuuuvaaaaaal
[box_dark]When/How did u start singing and who inspired you?[/box_dark] I began singing as a kid, my parents are both singers and I have a lot of other family members in the entertainment industry. My grandmother inspired me to move forward with my music career before she passed away and now more than ever, I am determined to succeed in her honor!
[box_dark]Who are some artist you want to work with?[/box_dark] Missy Elliott, Robert Glasper, Ryan Leslie, & Lalah Hathaway. There are so many more, I’d love to work with…too many to name here, I just know that I can’t wait to B. thrown into the middle of greatness.
[box_dark]When you listen to beats how do you pick your tracks? [/box_dark]I’d actually like to think the tracks pick me; I am not nearly as methodical as I probably should B. I have always wanted to tell a story with my music and it seems to always just come together whenever I hear a beat that moves me, it could B. immediately or when I come back and listen to it later. If it’s for me..it is FOR ME!
[box_dark]You being from the south how do you feel about south music?[/box_dark] I am a little on the fence, simply because the South seems to really love rap right now and as a singer, that can B. rather disheartening. However, I am a die-hard optimist, so with that, I always make sure I support my friends in the industry that rap and I exchange contact info with rap artists who may need a female vocalist to write and/or sing on hooks. I support good music, so if it’s out there, I want to B. in the midst of it!
[box_dark]What project’s are you working on? [/box_dark]I am currently putting the final touches on “SoulBareHer: The SexTape” it’s a compilation of some of my sexiest songs and trust me when I say…the world will B. formally introduced to “Pornetry” and all of its splendor.
[box_dark]What’s next for you?[/box_dark] Everything, I can get my hands around! I am looking forward to continuing to perform throughout the US and my first show abroad. I am excited about the new music I am creating for you all to experience and meeting new supporters as I continue to change minds one at a time!
[box_dark]What would you tell somebody about the music biz that’s trying to get in it?[/box_dark] I have learned so much in the last year & a half, most importantly, I have learned the power in building relationships! Money may open the door, but a good solid relationship will get you through it and keep it open for you in the future. I am a firm believer that if you “Sow greatness and that is what you’ll reap!”
[box_dark]Let the world know the crazy thing a fan has done to you or for you?[/box_dark] The most touching thing would have to have been being surprised with a reservation to stay in “ROOM 328” (it’s the name of one of my songs) during one of my performances out of town. It shows that people not only enjoy my music but think enough of me to go out of their way to surprise me. It’s all in the details… I LOVE IT!
