Interview With The Amazing Artist Law Artis



1. Where are we talking from today?

A. I currently live in Jamaica Queens.

2. What would you like to accomplish in 2019?

A. I will like to connect with a team and label that gets my sound and art. Begin my album,
release it by November and Start touring by the beginning of 2020. You got to be
specific and set your goals and intentions. That’s my philosophy in 2019.

3. What is your take on politics?

A. I always remember what my 8th grade history teacher said, “You picking the lesser of
two evils.” For example, in the last election, who you rather Hillary who has hot sauce in her
bag and can’t email properly or Donald J. Trump who’s grabbing women by their
genitals and making America great again on Twitter(wink wink). I think politics are great
but I leave that to your own personal preference. Freedom and equality is what I stand for no matter the race, color, religion, etc.

4. Where did you get your artist name from?

A. My full name is Lawrence Artis, Jr. My friend who was smoking the green earth as we
were chilling says, “You should make your stage name Law...it’s the Law now drop it!” I
went with it and it stuck. It’s basically a shorter version of my birth name.

5. Growing up, how important has music been in your life? Can you recall the moment
when you decided that you wanted to be a musician? Was it an easy or difficult choice to make?

A. Music was my everything! I wanted to sing like my Grandparents who are both very
good singer. R.I.P. Pop-Pop. I knew I wanted to be a musician when I wrote my first
song at 10 years old. My cousin who was a wonderful vocalist, we had a childhood
group called Double L and we sang at a banquet. I remember thinking I want this to be
like this for the rest of my life. It was easy until I hit 18. Everything became so much
harder. Where am I going to get the money to finance these dreams? Many people kept
telling me to find a backup plan. That’s not what God is saying in my heart. It was a struggle to find balance, and peace in this artistic journey.

6. Was there ever a time when you thought about doing something else? If you weren’t a musician today, what could you see yourself doing?

A. Are you kidding me...I’m the king of back up plans. I have been a deli worker, call
center rep, bank teller, paperboy, college student worker, and a soldier. If I wasn’t doing music today. I would continue my education and become a professor for the arts.

7. What has been the biggest surprise so far about making music your career? What has been an unexpected or welcome challenge to it all?

A. The biggest surprise is how easy it is for me to record my song and write lyrics. It’s like
breathing to me. I hadn’t been in a studio in 5 years and decided to just go for it. I had to
write the songs before the studio session. My producer Ian Litovich just went with the
flow. I don’t like to waste time. We knocked out a song a day and no more than an 8-hour
session. The hardest challenge was the visuals, writing the treatments and explaining
my vision to the directors. Sometimes people come with their own agenda and you got to give them room to express but not take over your vision.

8. What was it like putting together your EP?

A. It was so organic. I loved it! I enjoyed really digging into my creative place. I was so free
from my insecurities. I was doing ME and that felt good. Talking about things that
people don’t always sing about and not caring. That’s revolutionary for me!

9. Who are some of your favorite artists or rather, what musicians have continued to
inspire you and your music? Who would you absolutely still love to work within  ?

A. Favorite Artist are Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga, Brandy, Babyface, Toni
Braxton...(basically anybody in the ’90s) Artist that inspire me is different, these artists I
can see myself in their reflection: Kelis, Pink, Lenny Kravitz, Bill Withers, Bjork, Grace
Jones, and Macy Gray. I would love to work with my Cancer sis Solange, Dawn Richard and Lion’s Babe.

10. What has it been like keeping up with your social media accounts and all of the
different platforms? Is it hard to stay up to date on it all? What would you say is your favorite way to connect with your fans now?

A. I’m a private person and will always be. I’m only on Twitter and YouTube It keeps me
sane and focused on my mission in life. I like to keep my peace and my humans(my
fans) know me and I speak with a purpose or there is no reason to speak at all.

11. If you were going to be stranded on a deserted island, what musical item would you take with you and why?

A. I would take a recorder and a pencil and paper. I’m about to write one of the dopest album on this island. Law Artis: The lost files...I’m already marketing it. lol

12. If your music was going to be featured on any TV show that is currently on right
now, which would you love it to be on? Or if you prefer, what is a movie that you love
that you wish your music was featured in?

A. This current EP, I would say Grey’s Anatomy because this music is full of mood, love,and drama. That’s definitely the Grey’s Anatomy series.

13. At the end of the day, what do you hope people take away from your music?

A. I hope people will become more transparent in themselves. Live in their truth with no
apologies. Just know you are not alone, we all got stuff, but it’s how you take that stuff and make it gold. It’s your life...do what you will :-)

14. When you are not making music what else do you enjoy to do?

A. Acting, Dancing, and watching art and tennis. I see a concert and a Broadway show once a month. I’m at a movie once a week.

15. Where you @ online?
