Haitian Artist, Wicked Haitian Is Just Getting Ready To Take Over The Music Scene

In the world of overblown hype and excess, it is hard to find an authentic artist that embodies the fin and vibrancy of the originals that did so to establish the artform back in the day. Well, debut artist Rodshield Richard popularly known as Wicked Haitian from Haiti is here to remind us of that and more.

Music always has a way of sticking with you when it’s a good time. When you can hit play on the music and immediately have your spirit lifted due to the great vibes of the music. Those types of records always last long because of the feeling people have while hearing it. This is what you get from Wicked Haitian from one of his recent songs “No Love”.

Check out his latest songs on Spotify below:

Hi there, welcome to Honk Magazine. Thank you for taking out time to respond to us. To kick things off, Can you tell our readers about what really inspired you to write music?

Wicked Haitian What really inspired me to write music is my people that I still have in  Haiti. My goal is for me to make a way for them in order to have a better life.

When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?

Wicked Haitian – I realized I was going to make music professionally about one year ago. I’ve seen that I can actually make a difference for the people in Haiti and the music in me has helped me in different ways financially to help them.

 

Tell us what is so unique about you and your music?

Wicked Haitian – What’s unique about my music is that I speak from the heart. I don’t really go off what people say or what people think I just speak on how I feel.

 

Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?

Wicked Haitian – The funniest mistake I’ve ever made was two years ago when I signed a deal but it wasn’t beneficial at all. It was only beneficial to them. I’ve learnt from that mistake.

 

Can you tell us about your latest releases and what inspired you to create them?

Wicked Haitian – My latest releases are No Love,Time and ION FWY. “No Love” is basically explaining how I can show someone love when I don’t know how to love, and “Time” is basically saying you don’t really have to rush anything in life everything will fall in place just take your time and just keep going, and “ION FWY”  it’s basically me saying I’m all to myself now I don’t really focus on fake Friends or females because when I had nothing to my name nobody was around everybody loves to be around when you’re shining but nobody likes to be around when you’re down

Can you give us a brief insight about your upcoming projects?

Wicked Haitian – My upcoming projects consist of the videos for “No Love”, “Time” and “ION FWY” and in the videos I will go in detail explaining what each song means.

 

What do you wish you were told when you first started making music that you think would help artists just starting out?

Wicked Haitian – When I first started, I wish I was told that nobody really cares about you. They only care what they can make of you and It’s a dog eat dog world.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

Wicked Haitian – Just keep going don’t give up and keep it real as long as you love what you’re doing you will never burn out.

 

What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?

Wicked Haitian – When I don’t do music on Sundays I go on Jet Skis or I’ll go to the gym or I play basketball. I like to travel. I love travelling to Haiti a lot. There I’ll go to the Dominican Republic.

 

Any last piece of advice for those artists who just started making music?

Wicked Haitian – For someone that’s just starting doing music, don’t rush anything and never look for a handout.

Jeremy Parsons Delivers “Otherworldy” New Single “Tickin'”

A distinct western twang makes “Tickin’” a true trip showing off the deft skill of Jeremy Parsons in creating his own world. The heavy psychedelic elements alongside the sprawling approach gives it a surreal quality. His vocals have a steadfast aspect to them for the many elements that filter into the fray threaten to disrupt his lyricism. Yet he remains fully committed to the deliberate pace, proving to be the only constant in the ever-swirling series of atmospheres that rise up. Rhythms have a delicacy to them for they rise out of the sonic ether.

Opening up with a strictly minimal approach, him and the slide guitar start things out. From this tiny beginning he lets a whole series of genres into the fray. Beyond the obvious rock and country, pieces of electronica, industrial, and more find their own places. The way that the song tries to careen out of control adds to this tension. Word choice is impeccable. Usage of the sounds around the verses further adds to the mysterious aura that he conveys. Dry vocalizations help to give the song a hypnotic quality as the rest of the work descends into outright chaos. For the rest of the piece he makes sure that shards of melody pop throughout, and the rest of the piece gradually gets degraded into absolute nothingness for the final stretch.
