Hoosh makes a splash in South Florida with “Better Days”
The emerging artist grew up in Saudi Arabia and later relocated to Ohio where he was introduced to 90’s and early 2000’s hiphop. Later on, he moved to South Florida for school where he currently attends the University Of Miami.
“Better Days” has a great melodic swing and is perfect for any lazy day weekend playlist. The track echoes pieces of Berhana and Amine, but has a unique flow change throughout.
WE HAD SOME QUESTIONS FOR HOOSH
Tell us something about yourself that your fans may not know.
There was a time in my life where I had little to no self-belief. Everything I did was in the attempt to garner either attention or outward validation. Culturally, what I was passionate about was unacceptable, and there was no shortage of individuals who reaffirmed how slim my odds of “making it” would be. Music was my tunnel into self-love. It allowed me to find my voice, identity and self-esteem.
When did you choose to pursue music?
Ever since I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a musician. In fact, when I was five years old my grandma asked me the infamous question, “what do you want to be when you’re older.” Despite foreseeing her disapproval my immediate response was: “a singer.”
The thing is, pursuing music where I’m from is culturally taboo. From a standpoint of instability, lifestyle choices, and often poorly portrayed mishaps; you’re more likely to be viewed as problem child then a creative by partaking in this career. Being so, it took me until my junior year of college to officially make the leap in professionally pursuing my music. By the end of that first semester, I knew I couldn’t work a desk job.
What kind of style would you say your music resembles?
It resembles a mix between Soul, R&B, Hip-hop, and Alternative music coupled with various acoustic elements.
What kind of mark do you want to leave on listeners after hearing your music?
I want my listeners to view me as their equal. Just another individual, living and learning from experience. I want my listeners to take my music as an accurate expression of the different stages of my life. An autobiography in a way, detailing the intimate experiences that have helped me grow.
What is your goal for the end of 2019?
My main goal for 2019 is to be a full-time musician/actor with no compromise. Fully sufficient monetarily off my creations without having to work a day job to make ends meet.
What is your favorite thing about the Miami music scene?
My favorite thing about the Miami music scene is the diversity. As overused as that word can be, I don’t think anywhere does it like Miami. Coming from various walks of life and often speaking multiple languages, many of the artists you’ll meet in the Miami scene are bicultural. Pair that with the city’s originality and you have a hot bed of ultra-creatives.
