Rising Stars: Meet Sid Davis

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sid Davis.

Hi Sid, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
It started back at Roosevelt High School my junior year. I had a friend that was deeply involved with music, and I asked him to mentor me. He gave me the basic guidelines and told me “Just be yourself and rap about what you feel.” From that point on, I took his advice and ran with it until I found my sound. After school, I would go home and look up free beats on YouTube and rap over them to see what kind of songs I would get out of it depending on how I was feeling at the time.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
My journey has been a wild ride with plenty of ups and downs. I am currently working full-time, with a second job, and enrolled in college working towards my degree. I’m juggling all of this while still finding time to make it to the studio to record new music. There are times where I barely get enough sleep while I’m doing both jobs and heading back to the studio at night. It can be challenging at times, but when I have my mind set on a goal, I stick with it until the end.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am known for my storytelling in my music. I reflect on past situations that have happened in my life and I turn them into songs where people can heavily relate. One thing about me is I don’t sugarcoat. When it comes to my music, I lay everything on the table with no regrets. I’m most proud of my growth as an artist and what I’ve accomplished so far. From shooting a music video at the Cheesecake Factory, to working with well-known producers, I continue to push myself to greater heights.

One thing that sets me apart from the others is that I don’t try to have the same sound that everyone is going for. I stay in my own lane and do what’s best for me.

Let’s talk about our city – what do you love? What do you not love?
I love the atmosphere around the city and how it comes alive at night. During the day it’s too hot to do anything, so people tend to come out at night to have fun. What I dislike about the city is the music scene. No one works together to achieve the common goal because they’re in competition with each other. I believe if artists collaborated more with each other, we could create something new that no one has seen before.
