We were fortunate enough to talk ish with Chicago’s very own…Keyz!!! Keyz has been singing and performing for quite some time now and recently took the world on a “Trip To Mars.” Lets get to know Keyz…
3 Voices: For those out there who may not know, introduce yourself. Let the people know who Keyz is and what Keyz does.
Keyz: Well my name is Keyz. I’m 23 years old and I’m an R&B singer from Chicago, IL. I love music and my career & take it very seriously. I got the name Keyz from a friend of mine. He overheard me playing the piano in the studio & told me that should be my name because I’m very gifted in that area. Whatever I hear I can play instantly. It just comes natural.
3 Voices: When did you realize you could actually sing? What inspires you to sing?
Keyz: I started singing at the age of 2. I sang “Soon as I Get Home” by Faith Evans which is still one of my favorite songs of all time today. I loved the chorus and how catchy & smooth it flowed within the music itself.
3 Voices: Who are some of your musical influences? Who have you worked or would like to work with that’s in the music industry?
Keyz: Tank is one of my greatest influences; he does a lot of writing and producing and is such a great artist to me. He is one artist I would want to work with as well as Tyrese, Chris Brown, Ne-Yo, Maxwell, Jill Scott just to name a few.
3 Voices: Tell us about your single, “Trip to Mars.” Let the people know why they need to download the single and even request it on radio stations.
Keyz: Trip to Mars was given to me in a dream. I listened to the actual song before I went to sleep and in my dream I was singing what I actually recorded on the song. It’s one of those songs that’s catchy but will make you think. It’s available on iTunes for 0.99 cents so if you love R&B music be sure to go grab it!
3 Voices: We know that you are working on an album. What can the people expect on your new album? Have you decided on a name for this new album yet?
Keyz: Not just yet. I’m working on a EP that I’m planning to release before the album.. Like a sneak preview if you’d say. What you can expect on this album is a great story line. I love telling good stories in my music and have my fans help me by telling me some of their real life experiences in relationships. This album is for the ladies, uplifting them especially because they need to be uplifted through music & that’s what I plan to do.
3 Voices: What’s next for Keyz? Are there any exclusives that you can share with us?
Keyz: Valentine’s Day I’m releasing a Motown kind of sounding record “Nobody Else But You” Feat B.Lin. it’s one of the traditional love songs you’re used to hearing. So please if you love R&B and great sounding music please support this record because it is a definite hit!
