Artist on The Watch: YS-MAC

Tell us a little more about how you got into music!

Music has always played a really big part in my life.

I remember at age 15 locking my self in my basement and escaping the world for days after being so infatuated with writing music.

It got to a certain point where I just felt lost on where to go from there.

I was told by many people and friends that I need to be signed to a label in order to make it.

I guess after hearing that day after day, my whole perspective changed.

I slowly started fading away from writing and being an artist all together.

It wasn’t until 2019 when I said 'fuck it, I'm going to make a way on my own.'

I started studying music and artists more in depth.

I recorded my first official single 'Find Away' on GarageBand and it took weeks to learn mixing & mastering along with distribution at that time

I had no idea how to campaign a song, I'll alway remember that feeling in my chest.
