Futureboy Wavo Interview
HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
Futureboy Wavo. Futureboy Wavo stems from a combination of ideas. Firstly, I’ve always had a passion for technology, space, sci-fi, digital evolution, and other things revolving around those types of interests so I decided to choose a name that can fit into this category. The “Wavo” part of my name is a spin-off from my original artist name on SoundCloud.
HCM. When did you discover your love for music and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in music?
Futureboy Wavo. Believe it or not, I’ve been creating music since elementary school. My first beats were made on a Nintendo 3DS and I would bring my 3DS to school to share my beats with the class. By the time I reached middle school is when I started thinking about content creation. It wasn’t until high school that I fully realized that making and sharing music is something that I would be able to accomplish full time, solely because during my time in high school I was finally able to understand that producing content for my audience is something I really enjoy doing. My main goal is to eventually be able to learn and work for myself rather than an employer who decides what is right for me.
HCM. To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
Futureboy Wavo. I wouldn’t particularly say that my sense of style is derived from a singular person. In its entirety, my fashion style is influenced by modern American hip hop and pop culture.
HCM. On your current/upcoming album… How did you come up with the concept for this project?
Futureboy Wavo. Lemon Stand is literally about the lemonade stand that we would see as children. The seed for entrepreneurship was planted early on! The concept for this song is that, even as a young child – I’ve would always sought to be different from the rest of the crowd.
HCM. What are some of your greatest challenges as an artist, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
Futureboy Wavo. Developing focus and discipline likely is difficult for everybody, but I would say that is my greatest challenge. As you grow older and learn new things, you start to realize similarities between many other things that you thought seemed distant. Noticing and comparing these moments in my life gives me a better understanding of the world.
HCM. What impression would you like listeners to be left with after hearing your music?
Futureboy Wavo. I like to present myself as a well-mannered young man, so my music and style might inspire you to take action in your own life and seek opportunities for self-improvement.
HCM. What are your plans for the near future?
Futureboy Wavo. I like to inspire, motivate, and spread positivity. This coming year will be flooded with new single releases and collaborations from across the country. Not only will there be new music, but also a new journey to follow.
HCM. Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout-outs?
Futureboy Wavo. I wanna give a huge shout-out to B-dope for inspiring me to pick up a pen and write a song. If it wasn’t for this step, I wouldn’t have made it to where I am today. I also would like to thank Mz.Melz for giving me the opportunity to create full-time. Lastly, my manager has impacted my adventure since joining, it’s easier knowing you have someone always by your side to provide personal advice when you need it.
