I’ve been great! I’m hard at work promoting my new album, Chaz, and enjoying working as an entertainer in Orlando!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Without You”?
Without You has been one of my favorite songs off the album since day one. I’m so thrilled to have it as my first single and the reaction has been great!
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Every song I write stems from a life event or feeling. This one, in particular, sparked in a moment of confusion and being somewhat mislead.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Yes! My team and I just wrapped production on the music video and will be releasing it within the next month, or so!
The single comes off your new album Chaz – what’s the story behind the title?
Seeing as this is my debut album, it only seemed appropriate that I self-title it. However, I didn’t want to take the typical path in doing so, so I decided “Chaz” would be the way to go!
How was the recording and writing process?
The recording process was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. Countless hours go into deciding what the “sound” is going to be and then every little aspect has to be calculated to suit the final product. It was also one of the most amazing experiences of my life…getting to bring my music to life in a way I’d never had the opportunity to before.
How does your other background as a model and dancer influence your music and the other way around?
While modeling doesn’t really play a role in my music, dancing certainly does. I love to dance and a big part of my brand is dancing, as well as singing. I love writing music that I know will be fun to sing as well as fun to dance!
Do you take a different approach when you are writing for your own than when you are writing for someone else?
I don’t currently write for other artists, however I believe it’s incredibly important to keep each artist’s brand in mind when writing. I wouldn’t write an electronic pop song for Beyonce, for example.
What aspects of your life did you get to explore with this album?
This album really does explore many facets of what goes on in my mind and life. It allowed me to project things I typically wouldn’t express, out loud, and tell secrets I wouldn’t typically tell.
Any plans to hit the road?
We’re currently working on booking new and exciting opportunities to launch a national promotional tour for the album! Any tour updates will be announced on my website, www.chazrobinson.com
What else is happening next in Chaz Robinson’s world?
I’m currently on a press tour and my team and I are hard at work putting the album out there and making the release the best it can be! Our next big announcement is that my album will be reviewed in Billboard Magazine by the legendary, Fred Bronson! The review should be dropping soon.
