What is your name and what city do you rep?
My name is Alex DePalma I was born in Queens NYC & I represent
Tell us about your latest releases, what inspired you to create them?
I was inspired to make my album because I felt there was no consistency from the albums I’ve heard from my favorite artists. There was always 2-3 amazing songs with 1-2 radio hits & then the rest of the album is always a flop when I listen from beginning to end. I wanted to make my album like a party that never ends. From start to finish every song is a hit it is consistent all the way through to Emergency the 8th song.
What is unique about you and your music?
My music is Unique because I solely write every song I put out. I am an independent artist that has the sound & lyrics of an industry artist.
I am also very versatile I’ve been writing music in all different styles & genres for 7 years now. You’ll listen to my rap and hear me go crazy rapping with a flow, or on a drill beat, then be able to sing & make a #1 hit pop song. You never know what I’m gonna do next I am the most underrated artist in music.
What shaped your music?
What shaped my music was working at professional studios in NYC. It helped just find tune everything and it made my music sound A1 & brought it to the next level.
When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?
When I made my song What Is Love? That was the first song I put out & I spent a lot of time writing. I knew it was great before I even recorded it I knew it was special. It was the first song I made that I knew was really good and it was really fun to write. I made dozens of songs before that one but I made sure my music was at that level before I even released anything to the world.
What type of music do you listen to?
I listen to everything because I make everything I feel as an artist it’s important to know what’s popping in every genre. I listen to Rap, Pop, Alternative, Country, Reggae literally just about everything.
What inspires you to write music?
A great beat inspires me to make music. If I hear an amazing beat the lyrics just come to me it’s like I know the words that were meant to be in each place of the beat.
What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?
I love to travel when I’m not making music. Traveling either on vacation or just taking a road trip to the beach and relaxing. I’m passionate about slowing down when time moves slow. When life is moving fast and your in a rush it’s stressful. I feel the most fulfilled when I don’t have a care in the world and I’m laying on the beach & the weather is beautiful.
Happiness to you is…
Happiness to me is loving being able to love my family. Being able to show love to my friends to love my significant other. Those types of things are priceless and if you are able to love that’s worth more than anything in this life.
What do you wish you were told when you first started making music that you think would help artists just starting out?
I would say I wish I knew that labels don’t care about how good your music is. I put so much focus on getting the music to sound good thinking that they would sign me when it was. I got connected with a higher up at a huge label & he told me my song “Cant Let Go” is a #1 song if they promoted it. Unfortunately all the industry cares about is your clout. They care that everything looks good. So I would say focus on the marketing when you make a decent song and run up the numbers. Instead of waiting for that perfect song to be made.
Tell us about your upcoming projects…
I have my second album “ONLY GOOD VIBES” dropping soon. It’s a pop funk type sound that I think is the most consistent pop album ever made. It shows off my voice & my singing abilities. I always knew my pop music would be what I would be known for. So I waited to drop pop after I dropped a rap album so I’m not put in a box & so that I can always go back to rap if I wanted to.
Where do we find you music / music projects?
You can find my music on only Apple Music & Spotify
Any last words for the readers?
I plan on being your favorite artist of all time and delivering only vibes with every project I drop. I am confident saying that I am easily the most underrated artist in music. Let your friends know about Devibe before your to late and they already know Devibe. I got nothing but love!
