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

Hi Gaddo, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
To me, taking risks is essential to real growth. I can’t recall when taking a risk hasn’t benefited me in one way or another. And after a while you can identify which risks are really worth taking. Moving to LA with nothing to fall back on was a definite risk but has changed everything for me. I get to do what I love, with the people I started with.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I feel like what sets my art apart is how clearly I’m able to capture the energy of any given moment. We’ve been through a lot of trials and tribulations that definitely were not easy to overcome, but we made it work. And now being able to authentically express that through my music is a blessing in itslef. From moving to the states from Germany at age 10, to starring in feature films and landing roles on network TV shows and touring the large majority of the Southwest with our sound, I’ve learned that as long as I do what feels right in my spirit I’ll be taken care of. When it’s all said and done, I want the world to remember Gaddo and 3REIGN (the brand) as a true contributor to the zeitgeist of entertainment, fashion and the world of business.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We’d definitely have to hit the Grove. Feel like that’s an LA must if you’re from out of town. The beach is also on the list but that might be cliche. Honestly, all my friends are creatives so we’d probably just end up in the studio for the week. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Definitely have to shoutout my family for always being extremely supportive of my endeavors. And also, the world’s greatest manager, Niko Ivanov. Gotta show love to Chris Melee too for setting up the interview.
