PORSCHE "SPAYCE" (NEO-SOUL ARTIST)
1.) Tell us about yourself and your childhood?
My name is Porsche and my stage name is "SPAYCE". I was raised in Des Moines, IA by my grandmother. I have traveled quite a bit living in Minneapolis, MN to Atlanta, GA, to Bryan, TX and coming back home to Des Moines. I have 7 children and they are my inspiration in everything that I do in life.
2.) Tell us about a challenging time in your life and what lessons you learned from it?
I would say that being labeled as an at-risk child at a young age pressure on my shoulder. My mother was incarcerated most of my childhood and not knowing who my father was (until the age of 28). I would say it taught me that when nobody else is there you still have to have faith that things can always change, and you can write your own story. I have always been determined to prove everyone wrong who wished bad on my life.
3.) What motivates you to follow and pursue your passion?
My kids motivate me the most. Every time I come home with a new song I run it past them. They are the true test. Making them proud is everything. My fans that I have gained motivate me as well. They literally tell me to keep them coming and that is exactly what I try to do for them. So, I get up and write every single day, I pour my life into it so they can know me and it's just not a random song. I want my fans to know I stand for them.
4.) What advice would you give to the new up and coming artist?
That it is okay to be different. I wasted half of my most precious years thinking that nobody would like my music or understand it. I finally released it and found that there are actually more individuals out there just like me.
5.) What is the best advice would you give to your younger self?
"Go for it and don't wait. Don't think twice just go!"
6.) Have you or how do you do you contribute to the community?
I try to contribute in every way I can with services and items that I can. I have held city coat drives, can drives, helped organize back to school giveaways, charity skates, volunteer at youth and homeless shelters, and more.
7.) Who do you look up to besides your parents?
I look up to my grandfather. He was just one of the most kind-hearted individuals, so I try to always remember that it is good in the world.
8.) What are your goals for the next 5 years?
To be able to get my music to as many countries as possible, literally. I want to be able to spread the music and with each song tell a story.
9.) What is your motto in life?
"DARE TO BE DIFFERENT"
10.) How did you find out about Made4Mankind Clothing?
While working with other artists in the community while helping them build themselves, I had previously spoken with Made4Mankind Clothing.
11.) What do you know about Made4Mankind Clothing?
I know that Made4Mankind loves to give back. I know that they are known in the city for trying to help young talents. I have seen their presence in events and helping build confidence in individuals. I also know that they are bringing some of the dopest clothes and shoes around. Lol!
