My first major musical influence came from my mother, she introduced me to "Motown" and i fell in love with groups like "The Temptations" and "The Commodores". Alaska has never had a very thriving music scene, so starting off, artists like myself had to constantly break new ground virtually creating the scene from the ground up. The music business is particularly difficult up here due to the lack of media but it has never stopped us from pushing forward.
William George Smith I thought the song was pretty good. The hook was the best thing about. It was catchy, and had meaning to it. The 1st verse was too hurried, but the 2nd verse fit more with the beat, and flow of the song. I thought it was good though. 👍🏾
