We were fortunate enough to talk ish with Music Group…I.D. Entification!!! I.D. is a music group that consists of two brothers; R&B Singer, Impulse and Rap Artist, Demeanor. We first noticed I.D. at the Chicago Music Industry Panel & Indie Showcase, where they impress the entire crowd performing a capella. We knew right then and there that these two young men had pure talent. Just recently, I.D. released their official video for their single, “Crush”. Lets get to know I.D. Entification…
3 Voices: Introduce yourselves to the world. Let everyone know who I.D. is and what I.D does.
I.D.: We are an R&B group consisted of two brothers giving our personal experiences of our pasts, present, and just waiting to see what the future holds. In our music we want to give the fans our full identities. We want people to be able to listen to our work and feel as if they know us personally based on what they hear.
3 Voices: The two of you are brothers. When did the two of you decide to create, I.D.? What inspired I.D.?
I.D.: Yes we are brothers; we have always been musically inclined and have been working with each other since we were children. We would say we wrote our first song at maybe 12 years old, but I.D. officially became a group recently 2-3 months ago. The group was inspired by our own individual talent and we thought it would be a great idea to mesh the two R&B singer and Rapper together to create one.
3 Voices: Who are some artists that the two of you grew up listening to? Who are some artists that have influenced your music careers?
I.D.: Um, where do we start?
For me Impulse: I grew up listening to Anthony Hamilton, John Legend, Kelly Price, Tank, Music Soul child, TLC, Brittany Spears, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, usher, Chris Brown and more.
And For me Demeanor: I can go from Sade, to Mary J. Blidge, to Michael Jackson, um 2pac was big for me, Notorious BIG, KRS 1, NWA, Do Or Die, and Jagged Edge. On a more recent tip I like, Euroz, Mark Battles, King Los, etc… guys who deliver a real message along with great flows.
3 Voices: What do you guys generally discuss in your music? How does I.D. stand out from many other artists?
I.D.: In our music it’s generally positive. We discuss events placed in our lives emotionally, physically, and mentally. Now a days, drill music has taken over in our city and more so our generation. Our main focus is to come with originality, create our own lane, and discuss OUR real, giving OUR story for the fans to relate.
3 Voices: You all just recently released a preview of your single, Crush. Tell us a little about the single and the concept of the visual.
I.D.: Crush is a song inspired by..
For Impulse; a female in which he has had his eye on for years. The two of them being friends, as she didn’t know he has had a crush on her for a while.
And for me, Demeanor; the song was written in sequence to the exact way I met my present girlfriend who is now pregnant with our son. It all started as a “Crush” before I made things official with her.
3 Voices: What is next for I.D.? Are there any exclusives you can share?
I.D.: Well we are working on a mixtape hosted by DJ Amaris, so please look out for that. Estimated release time would be around or before New Year’s. Also while working on the mixtape, we are preparing for our first Album titled “I.D. Me” which will be available on ITunes upon release. Furthermore, look out for the “CRUSH” video which will be dropping in a day or so from today’s date 11/3/2014.
