We had the good fortune of connecting with KYO! and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi KYO!, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I started interning/working at a lot of studios in LA. I never received the opportunity to show my true talent, so I decided to invest in opening up my own recording studio. It definitely was not easy because I had to build up my clientele. No one knew about my studio, so I really had to put myself out there. By networking, going to different music events, and word of mouth I achieved my goal.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a music producer, engineer, and recording studio owner. I’ve worked with many small upcoming artists, along with many A-list artists as well. What sets me apart is that I produce/engineer multiple genres of music and I take pride in that because many people only excel in one genre. I’ve had many celebrities come to my studio and that’s definitely a success for me. The lessons I’ve learned is that patience and perseverance is key. Without struggling, and having the door closed on me many times, it wouldn’t have shaped me to be the successful person I am today. I want the world to know that through all the trials and tribulations, you can achieve all your goals by working hard, and trusting the man upstairs.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my friend was visiting for a week long trip, I would definitely have a lot planned for them. I would take them to popular spots that La is known for. I would take them to In-n-Out forsure! That would be one of the first stops. There’s also a few taco spots that I would hit up as well such as King Taco. Nightlife, I would definitely take my friend to some rooftop lounges that overlook LA. There’s definitely a lot to in LA, so my friend would not be bored at all.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to give a shout-out to my family and friends, and to whom ever has given me an opportunity so far. I just want to thank everyone for their support and patience with me.
