SEVEN DAVIS JR.: The tour was amazing. A moment in my life I will always remember. [Flying Lotus] is one of the kindest, most creative people I’ve ever met and his fans are equally as unique.
What did you learn from it?
All that matters is the music. Not social media, not politics, just the art. Do it from a true place within and you’ll be fine.
You’re around other artists, both aspiring and established. It’s literally a playground for creatives.
Steven Julien, a.k.a. Funkineven, once said about you: “To me, he’s like a new Prince.”Seven Davis Jr's "Church" (Ninja Tune)
It’s an honor to be compared to Prince even though he and I have many differences. Prince inspired me to be a brave artist.
Your first release on your own label Secret Angels was actually a tribute EP dedicated to Prince and Michael Jackson. What’s coming up for the label? And what’s coming next for you?
Secret Angels is still growing. We have a lot of projects lined up for 2018. Currently working on my third album, plus some alias projects. On the road again, it’s a true blessing to be able to do music in these times.
