Indie Spotlight: Krishna Frazier
Artist. Producer. Engineer. These are just a few words that describe Houston’s own, Krishna Frazier. In the midst of creating his own music — which has a variety of it’s own covering hip-hop, pop, and a little R&B — Frazier has also produced for the likes of TWayne, Just Brittany, Willie P and Rizzo Rizzo just to name a few.
Frazier prides himself in eating, sleeping, and breathing music – literally! The 24 year-old musician expressed to us how he has had nights of sleeping in his car or the studio just to save money during his transition into his artistry.
His love for music extends all the way from his adolescent years. Frazier tells us a story of how he wrote his first song for his middle school talent show — A song that went on to become the middle school’s theme song. That’s a pretty bold move for a seventh grader!
Frazier’s inspiration he says can attributed to his dad which was also in the music industry. After his dad’s death and growing up with an absent mother, the young Frazier turned to music to express himself. “After my dad’s death, I started to meet a lot of (music industry) people and I realized that I really want to talk about this (his struggle).”
Frazier can also attribute his success in music to shadowing the likes of Lil Flip and DJ Screw. One of his personal icons is Pop recording artist Florida. He says one of the ways to be successful in the industry is, “having loyal people around you. It’s impossible to do it all by yourself.”
What’s next up for Frazier is an EP with distribution through Capitol Records which will be released this Spring.
