In Their Own Words: CASE
Can you believe R&B singer CASE has been in the game for over 15 years. He was discovered by Russell Simmons who signed him to Def Jam Records. Case sang background for artists including Usher, Christopher Williams and Al B. Sure. He also wrote songs for Faith Evans among other singers.
Take a minute and get reacquainted with CASE.
ON THE 6TH proudly presents CASE :In his own words
I am an r&b singer, songwriter, producer. I have been nominated for 2 Grammy's, put out 4 albums, have worked with The Neptunes, ll cool j, Usher, Charlie Wilson, Foxy Brown, Joe, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Al b sure, faith Evans, Dave Hollister and others.
My first project in this business was a vocal arrangement for Al B Sure. It was my first time working in a real studio.
I don't ever remember NOT wanting to do this, there was always music in my life heavily, been singing all my life and writing songs since about 12.
My proudest moment I've had was being at the release party for my first album and my mom telling me how proud of me she was.
The only goal i haven't accomplished yet is to make my masterpiece, don't know what its going to be about, don't know what it's gonna sound like but i know it will come.
I have no regrets, don't really believe in them, but what i would've done is paid more attention to the business side of things earlier in my career.
I have a fun personality, I love to laugh and make other people laugh, i can be moody at times, but mostly i just like to have fun.
Definition of sexy to me is an attitude that goes along with the looks. When i find my soul mate the most important quality they must posses is that they have to be understanding.
Best advice I've received is to stay humble and prepare yourself for a time when your not hot as u were, because that time comes and goes for everyone.
My advice would be to know who u are as an artist, stay true to your vision for yourself and remember that the music business is way more business than music.
I'm currently working on an album titled "Heavens Door" to be released later this year.
