Upcoming Burlington Emcee & Producer, CAL, Interview Hosted By: P-Rice

 

Now a Junior at University of Vermont, Callan Clarke AKA CAL, has been making music throughout his whole childhood and is now in the works of producing and releasing his debut “3”- with plans to take his solo career into flight and shine as another emcee on the mic. Myself, P-Rice, was able to catch up with the inspiring emcee and deliver you all the details of the un-known gem who plans to be making his rounds in hip-hop music.

Interview was done: 1/6/2014

Questions asked by P-Rice:

P-Rice: For those that don’t know who you are, introduce yourself & where you’ve derived your stage name from…

Cal: Hey peoples, my name’s Callan Roberts, but you can call me CAL.  I’ve always gone by Callan my whole life, but always thought of going by Cal.  This just seemed like the moment to finally try that out.  Hopefully people will be able to pronounce/spell my name now.

P-Rice: Where did you grow up?

Cal: I grew up for my first 11 in Georgia in kinda upper middle class neighborhoods, then moved to Vermont and have lived here since, hopping around towns all in the state.  Been in Burlington a while and it’s kinda my home base at this point.

P-Rice: At what age did you get into hip-hop music?

Cal: I got into it when I was 11.  All my classmates were really into hip-hop and frankly the only music I’d ever been into was what my sister and mom played.  So lots of Barenaked Ladies and Good Charlotte.  They showed me Eminem, 50, Lil’ Jon, Snoop, and all of those guys who were big in 2003 or so.  So even though doing rap is newer to me I’ve always been into hip-hop.

The 20 Year Overnight Success: Interview with Michael Wallace

Very interesting interview with indie writer and author Michael Wallace, hosted by David Gaughran, about Wallace’s success as an independent author who has released several novels through the Amazon e-book services. This is an inspiring interview because it exposes the truth in being an independent writer- it takes a lot of work to maintain a well-structured fan base but the hard work does pay off if you do it correctly with a little bit of luck. This interview along with others with Michael Wallace are full of knowledgeable information about being an independent writer, the marketing and industry behind it. If you are a striving artist like myself who is open minded to being involved with many genre’s of writing (like Michael Wallace) or even if your a writer in general- you may find this interview influential, knowledgeable and interesting.

Michael patiently took the time over several days to answer my questions about writing, marketing, the craft, and the business. Given the length of the interview, and because I didn’t want to cut any of the great answers he gave, I’m posting this over two days.

The second part will go live at the same time tomorrow: 5pm GMT/Noon Eastern.

When I started self-publishing a couple of years ago, you were one of those guys already doing well that everyone was watching closely.

I think you uploaded your first in January of that year, and, if memory serves me right, The Righteous – your thriller set in a polygamist compound in the Utah desert – launched straight into the Top 100 of the Kindle Store and has…
