Splitting ImageIAA:  What is your music background?

SPLITTING IMAGE:  Our music background began in our childhood. We grew up listening to music by great artists like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, and Beyonce. As children, we would make up songs and beats for them. As we grew older, we began to find unique ways to hone our craft. Leshai, the singer of Splitting Image, began to cover songs by our influences to find her voice and her sound. As producers, Hood Angel and I began to practice making beats by using a music production program called Ableton Live to perfect our sound and learn how to become better producers.

IAA:  Why do you want to record and release your own music?

SPLITTING IMAGE:  We really want to use music as an outlet to speak about our past experiences and give our fans something they can relate to. With our beats, we tell a story that is unspoken. We tell stories through instruments the same way a poet would with words. Leshai brings the emotional aspect to the music by singing about love, heartbreak, and just having fun.

IAA:  What are your songs about?

SPLITTING IMAGE:  The songs that we make are about life. What we have experienced is a big part of the songs we create. We usually come up with a concept and build on it. For instance, if Leshai comes up with a melody or song title that we all like, we immediately dive in and try to develop a sound that will bring out that concept. We put a lot of our own thoughts and feelings into our music.

IAA:  Who is your fan base directed toward?

SPLITTING IMAGE:  As producers, most of our fan base consists of unsigned hip-hop artists looking for beats that will bring out the message of their song or image. The artists are usually looking for a hot beat that sounds like what you hear on the radio, but is also unique.  Leshai’s fans are mostly young men and women between the ages of 18-30 in all areas of the world from the US to India.

IAA:  Who are your musical influences?

SPLITTING IMAGE:   We have been influenced by Kanye West, Swizz Beatz, Pharrell Williams, Missy Elliott and Timbaland.

IAA:  How would you describe your music to people?

SPLITTING IMAGE:  Our music can be described as something different and unique. While we try to make music that can be played on the radio, we do not always look to the latest trend when making a song. We go for what sounds good, and what feels right to us. We stay true to our music, so the best description for our music is that it is 100% original.

IAA:  What makes you stand out from other artist?

SPLITTING IMAGE:  We stand out by being three sisters with three separate talents and personalities that merge together to create a musical force. We are all years apart, I am 23, Leshai is 17, and Hood Angel is 14. We also write, record, compose, and produce all of our own music.

IAA:  What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?

SPLITTING IMAGE:  We are currently working on Leshai’s sophomore album and working on new hip-hop and r&b beats to put our for our fans. We are hoping to release Leshai’s album this spring.

IAA:  What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

SPLITTING IMAGE:  Even though we all have our own individual goals, one common long term goal we all have is to become a prominent force in the music industry. We want to build a legacy through music, but also make a name for ourselves in the television and film industry.

IAA:  How can your fans access your music and contact you?

SPLITTING IMAGE:  Fans can listen to our beats on reverbnation.com/splittingimageproductions, follow us on twitter @ImageBeats, and like us on facebook, http://www.facebook.com/pages/Splitting-Image-Productions/471564112874893

Leshai’s music and videos can be found on reverbnation.com/leshai, YouTube.com/bsosweet18, and on her facebook page,  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Leshai/226256030739750
