Everydayclout interview with [Tone Eyeful].

Q. Hi, how are you today?

I’m doing well today!!

Q. Where are you from?

My name is Tone Eyeful and I am an artist from New Haven, Connecticut.

Q. When did you start making music - and what or who were your early influences?

I’ve been making music since I was a kid, but I’ve been taking it seriously for about 10 years now. My influences growing up were 50, Nas, Big, Cole, and Kanye. Along with the fact that my father was heavy into hip hop and always had the newest mixtapes and my mother could actually sing so there was always music going on in the crib growing up.

As far as skills to be successful I think its important for an artist to be personable and well rounded, especially now a days when you have to be in front of the camera so much. 

Q. What skills do you think artists need to be successful?

I think staying up to date with the latest trends really depends on you actually being outside and more importantly on the producers that you chose to work with. Your sound is 50% of your artistry and having the right people behind you to help hone that is important. 

Q. When performing, what techniques do you use to engage the audience??

My performance strategies depend on the size of my crowd and the vibe of the record, but it’s all about your energy and keeping your audience engaged.

Q. What would you say is the most rewarding part of being an artist?

I think the most rewarding part of being an artist is having your music resonate with different people from all over the world. Knowing someone in Germany or Japan is listening to me in the car with their friends is dope. The fact that something I do as an outlet can be consumed by someone else is rewarding within itself.

Q. How did you spend your lockdown/pandemic time? What did you accomplish before the entertainment world began to open up again?

I spent my lockdown making alot of music and building connections, amongst other things. I built up a heavy catalog which enables me to get that head start and stay consistent because I always have something in the clip ready to go. 

Q. Last question, when not making music, where can we find you?

Aside from my range and versatility, I don’t make music like other artists. A lot of artists sounds are starting to mesh and sound the same. I can go from rap to r&b to house and sound different in every record. I’ve never wanted to be boxed in as far as genre goes, because it limits me. I like to be able to explore my artistry and find new ways to delivery and create because you never know where it could lead you.
