Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY... then moving all the way to Miami, Sean Levine, also known as King Soloman, has gone through multiple changes and has had a long journey thus far. From using music as a creative outlet, to now having an audience who can relate to the struggles of overcoming many obstacles, Levine has left an outstanding impact on the music scene. He isn't just a regular music artist with the intent to sing about subjects that aren't relatable. King Soloman has shown acts of triumph, strength, and perseverance. He writes about defying the odds and rising against challenges. Real and relatable lyrics that you all need to hear.
Amanda Gabrielle: How do you feel about the music you have created thus far?
King Soloman: I feel like I can do a lot better. I’m happy with what I have, but I need to continue to work harder on my craft. I have been creating and creating for so long, but even though I am incredibly proud of what we have done now, I know there is always room to improve and build.
Are you different as an artist now, rather than how you were when you were younger?
Honestly, I’ve grown a lot. I look back at old lyrics and I’m like, why did I write that? Every day I’m changing as an artist, as an adult. It’s all about growth. The experiences you have in your life and the obstacles you face make you who you are today. So that’s why I think every time I write. It’s just a better version of who I am.
Do you have any musical inspirations that you look up to as an artist?
I would have to say J. Cole. That man is legendary. He would also be really dope to play with.
Who would be your dream artist to tour with?
Probably Flo-Rida. I saw him perform and he gives a lot of energy and his interaction with the crowd is on point. That is how I want to be. Sold out shows, a sick energetic performance, and just being able to do what I love, surrounding myself with people who love my music.
Where would be your dream destination to tour?
Honestly, my dream is to play a sold-out show in New York City is my absolute dream. If you can play NYC, you’ve made it. But if it would be outside of the US, I would love to tour Australia.
What is something you would want your listeners to know about you?
Fun fact, I got bitten by a shark when I was 4... I’m a survivor! But in all seriousness, I make my music for people to relate to it. I want everyone to know that you can do what you love, no matter what obstacles come your way.
What advice would you give your 13-year-old self?
Make sure you get a lot of friends to your bar mitzvah so they can give you money and invest it all in Amazon stock. Also... do what makes you happy no matter what anyone thinks.
8. What can we expect from you in the future?
You can expect a sick music video coming very soon, and new collaborations with many artists. But mostly, just straight fire.
As far as what is to come next for King Soloman, he will in fact be releasing more music, and more straight fire. Check out his music on Soundcloud, and make sure to stay tuned on his socials for everything we can expect. Keep defying the odds, and keep doing what you love.
