Q: What is inspiring you right now consistently to work on your endeavors?

A: Surrounding myself with like minded individuals definitely keeps me inspired. I’ve been in a creative space for over a decade and I’ve seen really talented people come and go due to life’s unexpected curveballs. I can’t stress how important it is for me personally to keep going forward because I see myself as a teller of stories. Anyone who takes a listen to my catalog can definitely find something relatable or cathartic within the message. I would hate to stop then see all the work and time I’ve put into it fade away. It’s like working out. You put six months to a year in and start seeing results. Looking good and feeling good, but the minute you take your foot off the gas, it takes two short weeks to get stagnant and slip backwards. Keeping myself around people who are working towards the same goals; we keep each other accountable.

Q: How have you overcome struggles to be where you are at now?

A: It was a struggle to find a consistent professional studio that took my time and talent seriously. Most people unfortunately have a “crab in a barrel” mentality, not all people but a lot, and that was a struggle to overcome when you genuinely want to create dope content and people are focused on instant gratification versus the bigger picture. I’m the type of person who wants to see everyone win so I’ll give away the plug and share information if it means I can help someone grow.

Q: What piece of advice do you want others to take back from the work you display?

A: I would tell them that despite what’s going on in life, don’t stop doing whatever it is that you’re passionate about. If you love working with animals or want to be a magician then do that, even if it’s only for 20 minutes a day. That 20 minutes can turn to an hour and so fourth. One day you may look up and be so great and genuinely happy that you’re ready to quit a mundane job and go on tour with the circus! Lol

All I’m saying is do what feels good and makes you happy because this life isn’t forever.

Q: As a business owner, what are some obstacles you’ve had to overcome to get where you are at?

A: I’ve had to overcome people not willing to support me. Trying to grow as an independent artist, support is vital. It amazes me when the people closest to you will go out on the thinest branch for celebrities they don’t know personally. Support for an artist doesn’t necessarily mean monetarily either. It can come in the smallest gestures like a repost on social media, or sharing your music to others but the people closest to you tend to be the most distant to your aspirations.  The problem with this is the fact that today, the majority of people aren’t independent minded. With the power of the internet, they tend to rely on “influencers” to tell them what is cool or uncool, right or wrong, good or bad, etc.  It’s only when others outside of your immediate tribe start to show support and “co-sign” your popularity, is when the bandwagon of previous non-supporters start to hop on.

Q: Who were the most influential people in your life?

A: Honestly, I’ve been most influenced by my upbringing. I grew up with the typical single mother household with multiple younger siblings, I had to be more mature than other adolescents around me. My brothers and I have different fathers, and I’m of mixed descent so it all played into how I viewed myself going up. Despite our socioeconomic status, my mom never let that hinder her work ethic and she definitely instilled that discipline in us. While submerging our house with all kinds of music, food, and a broader view of the world outside our own home, I think all of that shaped me in a multitude of ways.

J. Anders, is now focused on continuing to be an inspiration so that she can build on her already strong foundation even more than it already is. With all of us in the audience, she is excited about how excited we are about what she can do for the whole community. As a result of the COVID-19 epidemic, a lot of big-crowd events, like concerts and festivals, were banned in 2021. This was because of restrictions put in place by both the city and the federal government. As a result, the number of chances for artists to show off their skills was dramatically cut down in 2021. However now in 2022, J. Anders is fully focused and inspired. “I'll be dropping the video to “Run That” within the next couple weeks as well as the projects I’ve previously mentioned. I’m currently working with super talented producers so this summer will for sure hear a variety of new music.” 

The #Focuseddd multimedia brand highlight the skills and motivations of people who have a good reason for what they do, like J. Anders.
