1. How would you describe your musical style?
I call it Rock & Flow, but lately I’ve been moving into an R&B space. I have influences from so many genres and time periods, and I like blending them together to make something unique.
2. What is the first album you owned?
I grew up with a collection of music, from my mom’s Bob Marley and Bobby McFerrin LPs to Living Colour and Fishbone tapes I got from my dad. Then as a teen I did a lot of downloading like most kids my age, but I think the first time I got in my car drove to a record store and bought an album for myself, it was Gym Class Heroes, Cruel as School Children.
3. How do you prepare before going up on stage?
I’ll usually do some vocal warm-ups, warm-up my hands on the guitar, dance in the mirror a little bit. If I’ve had a really stressful day, I might meditate for a minute or two to calm down. If I’m really nervous, I might do some fist push-ups to get the blood pumping. Sometimes I’ll have a drink or two so I can get on the same level as the audience.
4. If we’re going to buy you a drink, what should it be?
It depends on the occasion. My celebration drink is usually a double shot of Henny on the rocks. If I’m there to dance all night, I’ll probably get a Long Island iced tea. If I’m focusing on my health that day, I might get a vodka cranberry, so I can get some vitamins in my body while I’m getting lit. If I’m about to get on stage, the best thing for my voice is hot tea with lemon, honey, whiskey and rum.
5. What’s a song that has been stuck in your head these days?
I keep hearing that Chloe Bailey song “Have Mercy”. It’s catchy like a commercial!
6. Who’s your favorite artist?
7. Tell us about the first song you made. Was it a success or a failure?
My first song was called “Ya Heard?” and I recorded it on ‘Sound Recorder’ on a pencil mic that came with my mom’s desktop. I was 11. My prepubescent voice sounded like the tallest member of Alvin and the Chipmunks. The instrumental was just me beatboxing. It didn’t go platinum, but it gave me the confidence that I could finish a song.
8. What is the story behind
The story behind my name is that I used to go by King Zimm, but I wanted to change it up, give my name a spelling that has meaning. I spell my name with three i’s. One for the past, one for the future, and one for my intuition.
9.If you could pick one or the other what would you choose, the money or the fame?
I’ll take the money. I can party just as hard without the paparazzi trying to look up my skirt
10.If you could go back in time or in the future which one would you choose and why?
I kind of miss the 90’s. Life was more simple
. The internet was like a cool new toy. Honestly, I’m looking forward to a future with no more wars, no more poverty. Paradise for every man, woman and child. It sounds impossible, but I think with all the technology in development, that should be the goal.
