We had the good fortune of connecting with MoeCarro and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Moe, what role has risk played in your life or career?
One of the best things I have done was to take a risk on myself. At first, I was scared. I thought I needed to keep a 9-5 in order to make money and provide for myself. But, after making the leap, I knew that this was bigger than me. It’s even bigger than money. I need to make sure I am sharing my gift and leaving something meaningful for the world to enjoy.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
When I first started my indie career 6 years ago, I didn’t write any of my own music. I couldn’t record or engineer any of my own tracks. I didn’t even know how to make beats. It took a lot of self teaching and trial and error but now, not only am I able do these things for myself, I am able to provide these services to other independent artists. Because my image doesn’t match my sound, I often get overlooked for opportunities. I have created my own lane and my own way since others didn’t want to let me in. Additionally, I have started my own music group, On Dey Necks Music Group LLC., to help other like minded, hard working people master their craft and advance in their music career regardless of what others have said to them in the past.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
When I’m not performing, I’m a home body. But, one of my favorite places to get Mexican food and a drink is the Lupe Tortilla on Grand Parkway in Katy. Yes, that specific location. They are the BEST!
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 shoutout to my wife. She’s my backbone and the reason why I’m able to keep pushing forward with pursuing my career. She makes our small team of 2 look like a mighty force of many.
