We had the good fortune of connecting with Armstrong WW and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Armstrong, career-wise, where do you want to be in the end?
By the end of my career, I’ll be a musician that has inspired the next generation of creatives globally. I believe that is my obligation because there are musicians who inspired me, and it would be wrong to go on living without re-paying that favor to the future of music. Realistically, the end of my music career will be the day that I leave this earth, so until then my goal will always be to expand and use my knowledge to free peoples minds.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My music is often described as unfiltered and genre-less, which is agreeable because when creating a song I never limit myself to any pocket but my own. I believe that good music doesn’t need a genre, and if more artists where to experiment with their sound, it would be heaven on earth. Moving on, as of lately I am most excited about my upcoming debut album by the name of “Pursuit of Perfection”. It is an album that I think will change a plethora of lives and the music industry forever. On my quest to create this master piece, I have endured much stress due to certain life situations but I know in the end it will all be worth it. To get to my current position, I’ve had to mature quite quickly and learn to manage myself as if I am a business. Being a musician is not easy, the financial and mental struggles that come with this path in the beginning can cost most to give up. The key is that just as doctors take 7 years to become a doctor, being a musician takes time too. So one must be patient and willing to work day in and out, which is what I believe currently defines me. I want the world to know that I make music for you all, and I hope what I create can help you get through some tough times. Everyone stay safe, and be free!
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.
Firstly, I’d take them to go biking in downtown Houston; the scene is extremely beautiful in the night time. Also, if it was truly a bestfriend of mine then they must love food, so we’d definitely eat at Yo-Yo’s hotdogs, Whataburger, and one of the many taco trucks in our lovely city. Last but not least, what I would recommend anyone to once they arrive in Houston is to go to as many open mics as possible (especially Relabze). Houston has much talent when it comes to music, and most likely you will run into a future superstar if you visit an open mic a week.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My shoutout easily goes out to two people by the name of Luz and Bowen. Since I started taking my music career seriously, these two have been by my side helping and being extremely supportive. I love those two like family, and I believe in time we all will be extremely successful in our respective fields. One more shout out goes to Amit, a manager based in LA who flew me down there and completely changed the way I view my music career. All of these people are a reason why I am working as hard as I am now, so I can show them they did right by putting faith in me.
