INTERVIEW: Keith More-Fire

Hi Keith’ More-Fire, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
I’m pretty good! I’m still taking in all the love from “Sugar.”

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Sugar”?
Sugar is one of its kind, and you don’t really hear a sound like it nowadays. If you enjoy music that compels you to get up and dance then ‘Sugar’ is definitely a good song to add to your playlist. ‘Sugar’ is my take on Outkast’s “Hey Ya” and Pharrell’s “Happy.”

“Sugar” also subliminally highlights the congeniality and essence of a woman.

Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Yes, I have a true love for old school music and how in those times, artists created music out of passion. These days, music doesn’t seem to come from the spirit like it once did. I hope to bring back passionate and enthusiastic music back to the scene.

Any plans to release a video for the single?
Many people who want to see the visuals for “Sugar” and I’m excited to say that the music video is on its way! Be on the lookout for it real soon! It’s going to be so dope!

The single comes off your new EP Six 20 – what’s the story behind the title?
Six 20 is a reflection of my accomplishments in my music career so far. I think those who have been with me on this journey will agree that Six 20 is a seamless compilation of the best six songs I’ve created before the age of 20.

How was the recording and writing process?
The writing portion was fairly easy. I find that the small intricacies in my music go a long way, and ‘Sugar’ demonstrates that.

How did Outkast and Grease get to influence the music?
In my opinion, Outkast has always proven to be one of the best musical groups of the 90’s.  Around 03’ when I was collecting CDs and downloading mixtapes to burn my own mix CDs on my dad’s computer Outkast released Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. “Ghetto Musick”, ‘The Way You Move,” “Roses,” and “Hey Ya” were all instant classics to me! Grease is just one of the best dance movies ever! I simply incorporated my love for those creative pieces of art into how I create my own.

First album was about struggles, what’s the “theme” on this album?
The theme of Six 20 is happiness and joy. On my first album I released all my anger, pain and most of struggles. With this one, I feel you can feel my happiness and you can tell that I’m having fun.

Any plans to hit the road?
Yes, I plan on going on a national tour in mid August. Until then I plan on playing shows around the east coast.

What else is happening next in Keith More-Fire’s world?
A whole lot! I’m starting a new day-to-day vlog soon, and we are starting back with More Fire Mondays so make sure you follow me on Instagram (@KeithMoreFire) and know a new song is coming every Monday. I have so much more music  with enticing features coming for you guys that couldn’t fit in Six 20. There will also be more shows involving many of your favorite music stars!
