We had the good fortune of connecting with Floyd Miles and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Floyd, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
Although I have quite a few one I feel that will always force me to have some accountability is “be the energy you want to attract.” Majority of the time we are projecting our own feelings positive and negative on to each other and recycling them amongst our peers. So it is important to stay conscious of the energy you’re giving other people. whatever you want or require you have to be first.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Known for introspective lyrics rooted in divinity, relationships, and self-awareness, I feel like i offer an honest / relatable take on music and life as while still uplifting, and stimulating listeners with genre fusing vibes. I like to keep my music relatable I create from the heart so I’m usually talking about the every day battles that we have with ourselves, relationships etc. I have something for everybody to vibe to and or reflect.
One of the lessons I learned along the way is to just focus on yourself. It’s easy to get caught up in the hype but focus yourself and what you want then you cant go wrong. don’t focus on how long it takes just live in the moment.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would be taking my friends to all things Nature I don’t drink alcohol I usually like to chill. I would hit up a nice dispensary and simply wholesome in englewood then take drive down PCH just stopping at places along the way. CA alone has so much scenery you can get beach, desert, forest all in the same day.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I feel like my journey is just now getting started because I’m just now coming into the artist I feel like I’m called to be. with that being said I would have to shout out the teachers that inspire me like Dr. Yosef Ben-Jochannan all the way to present day polymath/ philosopher Young Pharaoh. I draw inspiration from so many places but these individuals have reintroduced me to a lot of knowledge reminding me to look within.
