We are sharing our recent interview with music artist Joey Flats .
Twist Online : First of all please introduce yourself to our readers.
Joey Flats : Hey, my name’s Joey Flats, I have been doing this music stuff for almost 10 years now. I’m from Staten Island, NY , I’ll be 23 on the 19th of June (Gemini) and I won’t do anything else with my life as far as a career goes if it doesn’t involve musical creation.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Joey Flats : So I have always loved music and always loved to write random stories as a kid, so as I grew into my teenage years I began to develop my skills as a songwriter. When I was about 14/15 years old, my younger brother used to rap all of the time for fun and one day I decided I could do that to and started writing. I haven’t stopped since.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release ?
Joey Flats : My most recent release, “Love Something” is a 6 track EP I put together to express a certain mindset I was in at the time I created it. Each track is meant to express somethings we all experience, and it’s expressed through my own stories. The artwork is intended to help express the title which is meant to tell the listener ,”love something, anything, about yourself .. because if you don’t your demons , your fears, your emotions.. they’re all going to destroy you and break you down”
Twist Online : What kind of response you have received from the release?
Joey Flats : So far from this release the feedback has been great, I was skeptical about releasing it due to the nature of the music being a little more emotional and vulnerable but I am glad every one that has listened to it has enjoyed it so much.
Twist Online : What’s your favorite music genre?
Joey Flats : My absolute favorite music genre would have to be hip hop/rnb. It’s hard for me to pick a favorite I listen to so much of all different forms of music and genres.
Twist Online : What’s the best part of being a music artist?
Joey Flats : The best part about being a music artist in my opinion is being able to express yourself through different sound and words, the arrangement of your music can invoke feelings in anyone if it’s done correctly. Powerful music can save lives and change the world. That’s what I love about it. How people sometimes tell me it helps them and they can relate and all those things just make me feel good about what I do.
Twist Online : Have you set some goals to achieve?
Joey Flats : I set new goals all the time, I’m a goal oriented thinker. You have to be in this industry because if you don’t you will never have any solid work done. I create ideas, and once they are in motion I set a deadline for myself. Goals are important.
Twist Online : Are you working on any new project?
Joey Flats : I am intact working on a new project right now set to release in the summer time. I’m constantly working on new music nearly every day that I am free.

The best way to follow me online is through my Instagram account, My facebook page or by following my account on streaming services (Apple Music, Spotify, Soundcloud, Youtube Music, Etc)
