Extravagant musical artist MelFigure uses her character to shake up the music industry. Known for his great energy and unique style, he relies heavily on his original lyrics to resonate with the masses. His education in Houston, Texas and his popularity in high school gave him the courage to embark on a career as a solo artist.
I caught up with the Atlanta native for a quick interview below. As he candidly discusses his spirituality, his creative process, and the release of new material, his desire for success is predominant.
The respect: Where do you get your influence when you create music?
Figure: When I create music, I am influenced by my different spiritual beliefs. I have a strong link with the vibrations of the universe, because I am very attached to the signs given by the universe. I take these signs that I receive and turn them into sound / music.
The respect: How did your upbringing influence your original sound?
Figure: Going up, I’ve always had a very diverse group of friends who I think inspires my range of genres. Around the age of 14, too, I moved to Texas and met a group of friends. There were 8 of us. We started using the name ‘FLESH’ which means free soul and spirit. This too has played a part in my free-spirited ways.
The respect: How would you best describe your unique style?
Figure: If I had to use one word to describe my style / sound it would be ‘extravagant’ which to me means outside of the natural / normal force of the earth.
The respect: What was the inspiration behind your Jaguar Induction project?
Figure: My inspiration for Jaguar Induction came from the birth of my rabid side of mind. This side of me was given the name of jaguar, which is my spirit animal. Around the age of 17, I found my name ‘MelFigure’ which means 2 action figures.
I found this name because I have 2 sides to me. I have a cold side that I describe as my island boy side, and then I have my scandalous, “jaguar” side. It was the main spirit of my album. Jaguar Induction was a side of me that I had been hiding for years. This is the side that I used as an outlet for unexpressed emotions.
The respect: When can we expect new material from you?
Figure: You can expect new music anytime over the next 3 months.
