Artist Spotlight: Meet Keem Smilez

Q: Welcome to 1500Radio.com we are back with another Artist Spotlight featuring Keem Smilez. Welcome to our station, tell the people a bit about who you are, where you're from and what you do.


A: Im KeemSmilez, I'm from Delaware. The first state. A lot of people don't know that. But yup, it's the first state. I am a singer, song writer and all around entrepreneur.



Q: I love it. So let's dive into the artistry. What kind of style or genre would you say your music is?


A: So recently a lot of people have been telling me, "you don't sound like anybody," which is a great great compliment. It's like huge. But some people I listen to are Drake, Bryson Tiller, Jhene Aiko, what's his name.... Brent Faiyaz.


That's my vibe.




I think I really want to do this.

Q: So what encouraged you to first start making music?


A: So when I was 11, I use to sing in my bedroom just to myself and I was like "ooh...I can sing".. but I would keep it to myself. I use to be so shy. So then when I turned 13, I just started writing music and that's when my mom got me...shoutout to my mom... a karaoke machine for Christmas.. and I just started like recording.
