Out Now Magazine Spotlight series featuring Alli Cazaam for an interview
Where are you from?
I was born in Brooklyn, NY on October 31, 2009.
How do you describe your music?
I’ve been labeled as Pop, R&B, Electronic, and Adult Comtemporary.
Who is your biggest musical inspiration?
My biggest musical inspirations are of course my Dad, Prince, My Godfather (“Ace” Frehley of KISS) — I call him “Chuckles” for obvious reasons if you ever heard him laugh, Madonna, Sa-Fire, Lady Gaga, and Taylor Swift (Friend of the family).
What is your producing software?
My studio has Avid ProTools and there are a couple of 24 track mixing boards.
What other things do you do besides making music?
I also love dancing, amateur puppetry (Me and my Dad made The Alli Cazaam Halloween Special on my birthday for my Official YouTube Channel this week with a muppet made for me).
What is your favorite track of all time?
My favorite track on my album is a tie between “I Drown In My Tears” and “Stop!”. Of all time, a tie between Prince “Little Red Corvette” and “New York Groove” by my Godfather Ace Frehley.
What is your best-producing tip?
My best producing tip is to always remember that a song will sound completely different in your head before you play it so don’t try to correct what eventually comes out. The chances are that it is even better.
Why did you start making music?
My Mother died when I was young and I needed something to channel my fears, frustration, and sadness.
What are your goals for the future?
My goal in the future is to be as much of an inspiration to others as my family and friends have been to me.
What advice can you give for young music producers/DJs?
My advice to everyone out there is to surround yourself with people who love you and support you but aren’t afraid to tell you their true opinions and advice.
Please write a message to your fans.
Thank you so much for your wonderful support through the years. Thank you for believing in the same dreams that I do. Hang on, because this journey has just started! My debut Album, ‘Incantation’ drops Friday, November 24th!
