Moses Jones is a breakout artist from the USA and he stopped by for a chat!
Colby: What Do You Enjoy Most About Being A Musician?
Moses: Music is hard work and you need to work it every day if it’s going to amount to anything good. I love performing in front of people because their response, good or bad, is proof that the work I’ve done has paid off or not. When I see smiles on everyone’s faces I know that I’ve done my job well. I enjoy music because it’s a way to put yourself out there with no boundaries.
Colby: Which Track Of Yours Means The Most To You?
Moses: My song “City Or Country”. I was on hard times when I initially wrote the song and was thinking which what to do with my life – where to go. It took me just a few days to write but over 5 years to get it done. I was trying to find the perfect singer for the track and end up finding out that I was the guy for this song. This is my first single that I have sung and now am looking forward to singing more.
Colby: The First-Ever Gig You Played, Can You Remember It? How Was It?
Moses: My first gig I played outside of school was with the Fabulous Jades in California. It was a packed battle of the bands show. I had a lot of fun but I’m pretty sure that I looked like a fool trying to do raise the roof and my friend tried to do the dance to MY Girl by the Temptations and let’s just say it was funny 🙂 Glad there are no videos!
Colby: What Do You Think Is The Key To Success As A Musician?
Moses: Never give up. It’s a challenging career and if you don’t push yourself and work hard, I don’t think you will be very successful. There is a ton of work involved and you must enjoy what you’re doing to continue.
Colby: If You Wasn’t A Musician, What Job Would You Be Doing?
Moses: I would have been a high school teacher if I wasn’t a musician. I love teaching people new things and showing them new ways to do things to expand their knowledge. It’s awesome when you see the students take what they learn and utilize it in their careers and life.
