We had the good fortune of connecting with Carlos Battey and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Carlos, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Taking risks has allowed me to be the person I am. I started out taking a risk as a street performer singing on the streets for strangers then advancing to taking a risk at songwriting now being a performing artist and owning my own record label. Risks are essential to growth and wisdom.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am beyond blessed at where I am in my career being a Grammy winning songwriter and now record label owner has allowed to appreciate so many things! I am never forgetful on what it took to get to where I am and I want to spread love and knowledge to those who are looking to find their own musical path,

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I think Los Angeles is a big playground filled with exciting things to see. I would first check out the Santa Monica Pier and Third Street Promenade where it all started check out the amazing talent, followed by going to Tito’s tacos for some amazing Mexican food in Culver City. After you gotta check out the Griffith Observatory some of the best views are up there! Then end the night with amazing steak and one of my favorite spots in Beverly Hills called Lawry’s Streak House.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to give a shoutout to every person who supported me in my journey from the people giving tips when I sang on the streets to my first manager Rachel Noelle who believed in me without hesitation. Also thanks to all the A&R’s and artists who allowed me to be apart of their musical journey. Thank You!
