May his legacy continue to touch people through his music!
When asked how he'd describe his music he's quick not to limit his audience . A native of New York, this 22 year old R&B artist likes to classify his style of music as a fusion of R&B, Soul, and Hip Hop. Both self taught and technically trained he feels he has a lot to draw from. When asked the question what separates him from the rest of the pack he says, " Well, vocally, I'd say I've cultivated a sound that's all mine...although singing high notes and ripping off fast runs are a necessity, I like to think that the quality and uniqueness of my sound is just as important, it's like spice on something you cook ...with just the right flavor you can make something delicious.I like to think of my voice as that spice and when I add it to a song I can make your ears wanna eat it up!" Also an accomplished producer and songwriter, Motif has his own strategy for what makes that hit song, "I like songs with big hooks and memorable phrases that people can't forget, I go for what sounds good and the feeling, not how technically amazing something is". While singing in groups, choirs, and church since the age of 5 Motif has not overlooked the importance of a balanced lifestyle, he says, "I have lots of other interests to balance my life. Music is just one part of Motif... a big part", he adds.
In the Spring of 2002, after graduating from college, Motif immediately had lots of interest from major labels, several of which had been waiting in the wings for his decision upon graduation. He formed his own record company, Motif Records, because as he puts it, "I have all the artistic control". Although he enjoys the challenges in the near future and has the hopes of becoming a household name, he also advocates a simpler lifestyle." I like to keep things simple, I like technology and where we're going, but sometimes we need to just take a step back and really appreciate the simple things in life... like walkin' down the beach on a moonlit night with your lady...now that is priceless!" When asking him about that special lady in his life...he proclaims, "thats the only thing missing", but just like his music, he says, "I'm determined to make that happen too!"
