Today we’d like to introduce you to Chris Mohead.
Hi Chris, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers.
Well, I always wanted to be a rapper since I was about 5. I started actually recording songs around 15. My dad and I started a music/entertainment company when I was around 25.
Right now, I release music and perform all throughout South Carolina, and my dad and I put on a variety show about twice a week where we interview local talent and give them an opportunity to perform and network.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It’s been mostly smooth actually. A lot of hard work.
Nothing too rough just yet but we still have a long way to go. One of the first obstacles to get over was with my dad being my manager and business partner, just getting him to see me as an artist with a lot of ideas that you might not understand when I explain, but just see it through and it’ll all make sense.
That’s one lite struggle we sort of had in the beginning.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am a rapper/singer and an aspiring filmmaker/actor. I’m currently most known for my music.
My most recent project “The Sunflower” is what I’m most proud of. The main thing that sets me apart from any other artist is just simply me. No one on this planet has the same story.
So the foundation of everything I do creatively is honesty. If I create from an honest place I never have to worry about sounding like anyone else because no one else shares my exact experience.
If we knew you growing up, how would we have described you?
I was quiet and antisocial around certain people and silly and outgoing around certain people.
I’ve always been a critical thinker. I’ve always questioned my surroundings. Growing up, I was really big into movies and I loved behind-the-scenes footage, the process of making a film always intrigued me.
Some days I would play football outside with neighborhood kids, some days I’d sit in my room on music blog sites and movie news sites.
