Kirk took to social media to celebrate the successful release of Caziah’s 15-minute Ep – “Canon Tape Demos”, which is available on digital platforms.
Speaking with Voyage Dallas, Caziah said: What really got me into doing music was my family and the environment in which I grew up in. My father grew up doing gospel music, and my mother was in a R&B group in her early twenties, so I like to believe that a passion for music was forged inside of me before I ever stepped foot on the Earth. My parents did all they needed to do to cultivate my God-given gift, and they also left more than enough room for me to grow not only in my gift but in my faith, which resulted in my gift turning into a passion.
He also said: ‘I am an independent musician, songwriter, and producer who specializes in Exaltation from Artistry. Exaltation from Artistry implies that whatever work I do, is to be a reflection of my faith and my character. I want whatever work I conjure up to be crafted with time and care, and most importantly, I want it to have a message with positive attributes.’
He added: I am most proud of my faith, for it acts as a catalyst for all of my works. I also believe that it is my faith that enhances and influences my sound, and sets me apart, for it is my main tool for originality.
