Conversations with G0ldilock

Today we’d like to introduce you to G0ldilock .

Hi G0ldilock, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Growing up, I was surrounded by music, from my grandma playing Whitney Houston and Al Green to my mom playing Lil Wayne and Ciara. Music played a big part in my childhood. I started playing instruments in elementary school up until middle school. Afterward, I would freestyle and mess around in middle school with a few friends. It wasn’t until high school I started writing and putting my story on the mic. My brother was also another influence to start making music.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road. There are always new challenges and obstacles when being an artist. Many people get caught up in what’s trending and happening around them instead of focusing on the craft. Also, I did not realize timing is everything. I don’t focus on numbers anymore, just on the craft. Could it be better? How could I make it better? And, what’s next?

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about what you do?
I’m an artist from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I specialize in vocals, lyrics, and songwriting. I’m most proud of finding others that relate to me and my story through the music. Many people are going through things, and music can be a way of escaping reality; what sets me apart from others is being 100% authentic and always bringing a breath of fresh air to the table with my work.

Had we loved to hear about any fond memories you have from growing up?
My favorite childhood memory has to be growing up in the Ames lake apartments community on the east side of St. Paul. I met many people there and made connections with some who are no longer here or living an opposite lifestyle than I live now. The memories of running around just being “ghetto kids” always make me laugh because it seemed nothing mattered back then.
