A one on one interview with Conquer Entertainment heart and soul artist Olamide Faison.
Olamide, Where are you from and what are two things most people don’t know about you?
“Well; I was born and raised in New York City, Midtown Hell’s Kitchen to be exact. And two things people don’t know about me, and two things that people don’t know about me. One. . . I’m in Love. I’m in love with Spanish Food! And the second thing. . . I sometimes snore. WOO that’s a weight off my shoulders!”
Now about your album “Live at the Bitter End.” What was your inspiration when creating those songs and recording that album at that time in your life?
“What brought that album, is constantly playing at the bitter end and not having any product to share with peope, for them to take home. So after a few residencies, I figured it would be great to give people something that was authentic to their experience at the bitter end. So; That’s how “Live at the Bitter End” came about, and those songs were a selective few of records that I performed at.”
What is your favorite song on that album?
“My favorite song would have to be. . . Well I have two; “At Least not Today” is one of my favorites that I’ve written, and “My Life” which pretty talks about my journey from getting to this point.”
How did it feel to perform in front of 20,000+ people in Greensboro, NC? Di you ever imagine yourself there?
“Performing in Greensboro was definitely a dream come true, its something that I’ve only seen in my mind and felt in my heart. So when it actually happened, there was a lot of energy and a lot of reflecting happening before and after doing the show for Market American and Shop.com, and Conquer. I definitely see myself doing things that big, but you never know when it will happen or if it will happen so the fact that it actually did, you know, it prepared for that happening some more”
