"Delly Everyday" Keeps Wack Music Away
You read it right! Listening to “Delly Everyday” is like getting a dose of hip-hop vitamins...every day. The man has skills, and he embodies what we here at Tsunome look for in independent art. We first met Mr. Everyday at the “Respect the Underground Hip-Hop Festival”, in Arizona, a few months back and have monitored his progress ever since. In an industry that is encouraging many to sound similar, Delly has found effortless authenticity. With fresh rhymes, stunning imagery, and a unique ability of taking conscious undertones and wrapping them into a lyrically playful delivery, Delly ranks high in our nationwide artist pool. He is also very well known for his electrifying stage presence and is undeniably one of Arizona's finest, or best kept secrets.
Born and raised in the poverty-stricken ghettos of South Phoenix, Delly has overcame tremendous obstacles. Dedicating all his time and efforts into his craft, Delly has catapulted ahead of other artists in the genre. After Releasing his “Kobe Back” project in late June 2015 Delly has started on an endeavor filled with ups and downs dismantling show after show with his intense passion and energy for the music. Embracing the motto “You Only Have to See Him Once”, which stems from newly acquired fans and supporters who say that Mr. Everyday’s Live performances are truly un-parallel to any hip-hop artist they’ve ever witnessed.
Living up to his name sake “Everyday”, which is simply Delly’s belief that if you do something “Everyday”, you will excel in it, he has worked nonstop to claim his respect musically. Set to drop a new song every day for the entire year of 2018 in his 365 Challenge, you can expect phenomenal things from Delly as he continues on his journey to change the world one song at a time. We sat down with the man himself, and this is what he had to say.
Interviewer: How and when did you start making music?
Everyday: I started making music at the age of 13 that’s when I recorded my first record in a professional studio.
Who were you early inspirations, and how have they changed since Then?
My earliest inspiration was my uncle he was a great role model at the time and I wanted to do whatever he did from music to martial arts…anything really. These days being older I find a lot of inspiration through life and the process of growth. Getting better inspires me.
If you could work with anybody who would it be?
Right now, It would be St Louis artist Smino everything about his style is amazing to me.
What do you like most about the industry?
I love how the industry is constantly changing and evolving so if you aren’t really actively working you can get lost in the crowd. As well as all the power independent artist possess.
What do you hate most about the industry?
I don’t hate anything about it I understand it’s a business at the end of the day. I like to focus more on the music and let the industry do what its designed to do.
What message do you want to send with your music?
I really want to make people believe in themselves again and push to grow and become better as people. As well as showing love which is huge for me.
What's the biggest challenge you face as an independent artist?
The biggest challenge at this point is fan reach…the process is really slow gaining more fans organically. But I do believe good product will rise to the top so it’s only a matter of time before the exposure I need comes to light.
How do you overcome those obstacles?
I stay patient and continue working and prepping for the moment when I do have an amazing fan reach I will be able to deliver a great product. So staying focus and keeping my eye on the prize.
What else would you like your listeners to know about you?
I would like them to know that this year I will be dropping a record every day for the whole year so far I’m over 60 Days in.
Where can they listen to your work?
All of my records for the 365 Challenge can be found on my Soundcloud.
