We had the good fortune of connecting with Vizionvry and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Vizionvry, how has your work-life balance changed over time?
My whole life is about balance. I’m a Libra, so the scales of balance in my life are what determine if I’m on track or not. I’m a firm believer of that. The thing is, overtime I realized if I didn’t have balance, I don’t have order or direction in my life. All I have is chaos. But sometimes, the order turns to chaos, and the chaos becomes beautiful. It’s all about perspective. It took a long time to learn that, but when I did it all made sense to me. I had to weigh what was most important to me in my life, and what it was that I wanted. Now I see it clearly. Once I got to the point where I figured out what I wanted, I knew that no one would ever be able to take that away from me. See, for an artist it’s usually easy to understand the fact that sometimes you’re greatest work comes from pain and hardship. I guess that’s the curse that comes with the territory. From the darkness comes the light. From the ashes comes new beginnings. From the losses comes discovery. With the death of an ego we are born again. Not everyone will understand, but being misunderstood is ok.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I write and create music. Mainly Hip Hop. However, I do create other types of music as well. I play guitar and also create music that is completely outside the realm of Hip Hop. I would say the thing that sets me apart from everyone else is my versatility. I wanna have as many cards in my hand as possible. The more cards I have, the more doors there are to walk through. I think I’m most proud of the bodies of work I have put together that are released and unreleased. I’ve learned along the way that you should do your best to try not to care what other people think of you or your artistry. If I cared about every negative comment or opinion I would never accomplish anything. I learned to always be myself no matter what. Be original. Don’t be what other people want you to be. That’s boring. I’m weird, and that’s fun to me. I embrace weird. Tell em to put “He was a good dude” on my tombstone and I’ll be happy.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
In no specific order we’re gonna pull up to the studio and record a track or two. We’re gonna go to the gun range with a lot of fire power and throw a lot of lead down range. We’re gonna go to Galveston and link up with a couple of my contacts I have to do some paranormal investigating. We’re gonna go do some antiquing in Galveston or Houston. We definitely gotta swing by some good card and comic shops while we’re at it. As far as food, I’m gonna whip up some of my venison dishes from what I harvested in the previous hunting season. At some point we have to stop by “T-Bone Toms” in my home town of Kemah. We have to slide by “Asian Bistro” in Friendswood. But if that doesn’t suit us you can catch us at “Pomodoro’s” for some amazing Italian food, or you can find us at “Bakkhus Taverna” in Kemah for some delicious Greek food.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I wanna thank all of my friends, family, followers, fans, and supporters that always believe in me and always show love to me no matter what. I couldn’t do it without them. I also wanna thank all of the people who ever doubted me or said I couldn’t accomplish what I have. It feels good knowing that they were wrong. I wanna thank a fellow writer and recording artist aka my best friend Peej for always being there for me, never judging me, always understanding me, and knowing what it’s like to be alone in the dark. He made me feel not so alone, and put a piece back in my life that was missing before. Most importantly I wanna thank God for the journey.
