Jason
Where were you born?

David
I was born in Philadelphia, but I was raised in Delaware.

Jason
How did you get started with your career?

David
Well I was trained as a dancer in ballet and hip-hop, but I always wanted to sing. My parents would always put on Michael Jackson or Prince and I would go crazy. I never lost sight of that dream of singing and becoming a performer. I remember I thought I wasn’t good enough, but my friend really encouraged me to do it. My belief is, if God gives you a gift and he wants you to do something, you better do it.

Jason
I agree with you on that one. So how did that lead to where you are today with your online empire?

David
I was doing some promotion for a lot of artists. I’m really known as a super promoter in the industry. I use a lot of social media, but I also put together street teams and use that as well.

Jason
So when did you decide you wanted singing to be your career?

David
When I was a sophomore in high school, I was in a choir, but my voice didn’t really mesh well with the group. You know, I was kinda doin something a little different. So I had to stop that and go on and do me.

Jason
Can you tell me a little bit about this “Fierce Wings” movement?

David
Yea Fierce Wings is my label and management company. I self manage at the moment. I think that’s the best way because some people in the industry are crazy, so I gotta protect myself. Fierce Wings is also the name of my first album. That should be out soon. I’m not gonna put a date on it. You can’t really rush these things.

Jason
Can you tell me about your remixes to “Til The World Ends” and “Work Out”?

David
Yea, I did those because honestly, I wanted people to leave me alone. (laughing) I came up with this whole concept before I graduated high school. So people were hearing about it and wanted to hear me sing. So I decided to lay these two songs down to get a little buzz goin.

Jason
You also recently performed for the first time. What was that like? That must have been exciting.

David
That was in Pennsylvania and the experience was amazing. I literally worked my ass off. I had been preparing for the last 4-5 months and this group I was promoting for asked me if I wanted to perform. So I closed the show down and it was just an overall great experience.

Jason
That’s awesome. What is your dream goal?

David
My dream is to be an alternative rock/hip-hop mogul. Almost like Diddy, but I want to do things a bit differently. I actually got to meet him, so that was real inspiring.

Jason
What was that like?

David
Well I was with Dawn and Kalenna of Dirty Money, those are my home girls. Shout out to them. They are definitely a big influence. They helped me out a lot. Diddy was just a nice guy. He just gave me some good advice and it was really cool to be able to meet him.

Jason
Cool man. So, that brings us to the last question. You mentioned the album, anything else we can expect from you in the near future?

David
I have some music videos coming soon. I’m in the middle of talking to a director. We’re coming up with a few different concepts. It’s gonna be real nice. The quality is gonna be amazing. You’re gonna feel like you’re watching my life as it is unfolding. So that is definitely something for all my fans to look forward to. I also have a couple new singles coming out real soon. One is called “You Lost Me”. I produced and wrote that one. There’s also a song called “My Heart Is On Overload”. That’s a real nice song. And yea, my radio show is called “The Biz With D” and that’s on every Wednesday from 9-11 EST. Thanx so much for the interview and be good!
