I got FL studios; I looked up how to make beats and how to record myself, and then I just started making music from there.
Hip-hop and country aren't too far different: They got shiny suits and the boots and the guitars with their names on it. I was infatuated with that type of stuff.
If you like something, rock it. If you want to rock a cape every day, go for it.
I started making music... I guess I was 12, and I started playing 'Guitar Hero.' And you know, it got to a point where on expert, you can only exceed to a certain point. And so, you know, I was like, 'Let's play real guitar. Let's not waste more time.' So, I got my mom, I told her to buy me a guitar for Christmas, and I started making music then.
I like to be quiet and play guitar and just chill.
It's not normal for a white guy to get corn rows; a lot of people judged me. I like the way it looks, so you have to be confident.
In New York, my dad raised me to listen to everything like hip-hop, rock and country music. When I moved to Dallas, I started listening to whatever I wanted to listen to.
I moved to Dallas, and I started making music.
Stevie Nicks is dope.
There are times pop music is the end result when I'm in the studio, but I don't really go in and say, 'Today I am going to make a pop song,' but it can happen.
I'm just trying to make music everybody can get happy to and vibe to and turn up to. So long as I keep making good music, everything's going to be OK.
In order to find yourself, who you really are, you got to be with yourself; you got to hang out with yourself.
All my dance moves are improv. I just make them up on the spot.
I think a show is more of an interacting with fans than you just singing songs.
It has been wild, you know? I started out just putting a song that I made out on the Internet without being sure if anyone was going to like it, and it took me on tour around the world with Justin Bieber. It's been amazing!
When I was up in New York, the first record my parents bought me was the Terror Squad record with 'Lean Back.'
Miami is always super, duper lit.
I didn't have no friends or nothing; I was a nerdy kid.
I might wear skinny pants one day; I might wear thrift shop pants the next day.
I'm trying to bring a little bit of every type of sauce into one type of sound. Something that's really fresh.
