Let's get started with the interview and hear Tayvon's journey…
Please tell us more about your EP, INTERNAL.
The music from the recent album was created through pain, growth, and understanding, the cultivation of all of these three things that bring a philosophy level once you get to the last track. Hopefully, you will have an entirely new understanding of the world through one person's state of being – Reaching many forms of Enlightenment and Ascension in just 4 songs.
What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?
The strategies that helped me become successful in my journey have been repetition, many, many, many sleepless nights, persistence and determination. Never giving up and believing in myself regardless of what people said on many other occasions and by me following myself. I was able to come and find the answers in my perspective and understanding versus the way someone else wants me to view something.
Any message for our readers.
The message that I would want to give to the readers would be to continue to dream on, Dreamer. There are so many people out there that wished they could do the things that you as a dreamer want to do and probably are doing. So they will come with their own level of hate and jealousy just off of the fact that you're dreaming. So, continue to dream and continue to move forward to those steps because as long as you are moving, you will get to where you need to get to. Sir Isaac Newton's law states that whatever is put in motion stays in motion and whatever is put at rest stays at rest. So, if you're not even moving, how can you expect to get anywhere, and if you are moving, how can you not expect to get where you want to be?
Fantastic! So tell us, how can people find out more about you?
You can find out more about me by checking out my social media platforms and by listening to my music. The best way to really learn about me is to truly listen to my music because I put my soul into everything that I do. And those words that are created in that amount of time are some of the most crucial words that have changed my reality in such a way that I hope that it changes yours in the same positive way.
