Isiah Palmer

ISIAH PALMER is not only an emerging artist from the nineteenth state, but is also the focal point of this edition of Straight Official Sit-Downs. Check out his convo with @klassikceo down below and check out more interviews right here.


Q: What is your Name? Where are you from and what first got you interested in the entertainment

I’m Isiah Palmer and I live in Indianapolis, Indiana. I first became interested in the entertainment industry at a very early age as I really wanted to be an actor. I started becoming involved in musicals in my church and also acted with a local civic theater company. Singing and acting became my passion. However, acting was something that was picked up very naturally and came easy to me.

Q: Who and/or what inspires you to create?

Honestly, just living life to its fullest is the best inspiration! Life experiences truly inspire me to create…you can say that my life experiences truly push me forward in ways that may be difficult to explain. I not only have the opportunity to speak on things I’m going through at the time, but I also find that I truly enjoy the process; whether it be songwriting, rapping, singing, performing live to name a few, and am dedicated to bettering myself and my craft with every song I write or through every unbelievable opportunity I find coming my way.


Q: How would you describe your sound?

Hmmm, I’ve been told by others that I have a unique inner fire to create. I just let it happen. I do not try to achieve a certain sound but again just let the process happen. In doing so, I’ve also been told that I am not beholden to any single genre. Therefore, my songs may have Hip Hop, R&B, Pop, Rock, and many other influences. I do though find myself composing more melodies with rap vocals…something about that percussive feeling.

Q: What is your creative process like?

At present, I find myself creating while I am around incredibly talented and creative people, my friends, and we are in the studio just having fun.

Q: What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?

Gerard Way, Drake, and Kanye West.

I enjoy telling everyone to believe in themselves. Always treat people with respect. You never know who can change your life.

Isiah Palmer’s message to his fans

Q: What is a skill you have that most people don’t know about?

That’s easy…I love basketball! And, I ended up quitting both singing and acting early on in my life due to my love for basketball. I had my hopes set on joining my high school team but unfortunately that did not happen. My family moved several times during this time and I never gave up wanting to play basketball.

I finally ended up at a private, non-denominational Christian school where I made the team. We actually won a state championship and I received a basketball scholarship to play in college. While at college I was injured thus ending my basketball career.

Q: What would you be doing right now if you weren’t doing music?

If I were not making music, I would be acting and modeling.


Q: Who are some artists/people you admire and why?

I was blessed to have grown up around hit-making producer Chucky Thompson. He was my dear friend and mentor whom I worked closely with. His tremendous influence on my music can be felt to this day. His death from Covid was super hard on me, and I took it personal to be the best artist I can be.

Also, Gerard Way and My Chemical Romance as they were the first CD I ever received. Wiz Khalifa due to his military background and Kanye West because he is a different artist making generational music.

Q: What is the best advice you’ve been given?

To build and keep a healthy circle. This means finding and keeping people around who are not only positive but who really want to see you become successful on your own terms!

Q: If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

I really wish many more artists would have opportunities to be great. I feel we have outlets for artists to receive help, but we are not really giving indie artists the blueprint to be successful.

Q: What’s next for you, where would you like to see yourself in the next year?

I am incredibly blessed to be building a remarkable team and we are singularly focused on promoting my new
single entitled ADIOS. We really believe in the record. I am looking forward to performing live for larger audiences whether they be supporting slots or headlining small gigs to big festivals.

Q: What is your social media? How can people get in contact with you?

Everyone can follow me on Instagram. You can add me at @isiah.palmer

[La Bodega] Quarantine Talk: LUPE

Welcome to the New Installments of Quarantine Talk, where we’ve held various conversations with artist’s & groups from around the world via Zoom, Email, Social Media even plain old phone conversations.

We were previously on the 16th edition but due to cyber hacking by a group of web hackers, all of our published web content & website was removed and deleted permanently. But thanks to our amazing web server admin we are back in full swing! The artist we have today is LUPE from Athens Greece. You can check out our conversation down below.


DJ GOJABEAN: What is your stage name? Tell me where you’re from and what first got you interested in
the entertainment industry?

LUPE: My name is Michalis Latousakis (Lupe), I’m from Athens, Greece and the main factor that got me into the music industry was my need for expression.

DJ: Who and/or what inspires you to create?
LUPE: My thoughts and feelings about life, humanity and every kind of love.

DJ: How would you describe your sound?
LUPE: The sound is based on dark alternative and art rock. The deep, theatrical and wide-
ranged vocals along with the confessional lyricism and the dark sound make up the
obvious characteristic of the Lupe project.

DJ: What is your creative process like?
LUPE: I just record a piano progression spontaneously which express my thoughts and feelings.
Accompany that with a vocal melody and I write all the other instruments. Then I finally add my vocals to finish it out.

DJ: What is one message you would give to your supporters?
LUPE: The music industry is more plastic, and unreal. This is because technology has advanced so much. This is a great development. Let’s combine it with more human touch!

DJ: What is the most talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?
LUPE: I am a breakdance dancer and a bridge player

DJ: What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?
LUPE: It is hard and a little painful to think that! Anything where I am able to express myself. I would go through a different type of art like dance or theatre.

I admire David Bowie for his multifaceted and diverse music career.

LUPE on which artist(s) he admires


DJ: What is the best advice you’ve been given?
LUPE: Always choose your partners & colleagues wisely.

DJ: If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
LUPE: I believe that music and all forms of art have the role to give food for thought and provide
people with stimuli that has to do with self development. Today, the industry is just following trends instead of making a statement. Not really if at all and engaging with the fans. This needs to change.

DJ: What’s next for you and where would you like to see yourself in the next year?
LUPE: The next step for me is the promotion of the 2nd album Dark Room which has just
been released! The next year I would like to take part in big festivals and release my
next album.
