It all started with a stereo, a keyboard, and a Georgia-born/Delaware-raised boy with a dream. The moment Ahmad was able to quote song lyrics as a toddler, he knew he found a new love; that new love was music. From that special day, Ahmad McCown was listening to the sounds of legends such as: Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and Luther Vandross. In addition to being introduced to these talented artists, McCown became heavily influenced by artists in the names of Tevin Campbell, Babyface, Boyz II Men, Musiq Soulchild, Donell Jones, and many others. As time went by, McCown decided to use his musical gifts by participating in elementary school choirs and high school talent shows.
At that young age, Ahmad knew he wanted to take his talent to a new level. When Ahmad was fifteen years old, he got the chance to work on his musical talents when he received a keyboard as a gift from his parents. While attending high school and college, McCown spent the majority of his time writing and composing original songs. He then went on to join the youth band and the worship team at his local church. Ahmad is known for being very cheerful and laid-back. McCown has been told that he has a high level of maturity, which makes him have an older demeanor. Ahmad also enjoys laughing and reminiscing with his wonderful family and friends. Those who know McCown also consider him as a hardworking individual who has always been so focused on any task he plans on achieving.
Modern Soulful Music: What made you decide to jump into the music industry or music business?
Ahmad McCown (AM:) Ever since I was young, It was my dream to entertain. For as long as I can remember, I have been a dream chaser. Plus, music is my gift. As I have said multiple times, God gave us all a gift, and he would want us to share that gift with the world, or else he wouldn’t have given it to us. Using our gift could inspire others to use their gift as well.
What do you think makes you stand out from all the other aspiring and upcoming artists in your genre of music?
AM: I feel what makes me stand out from others is my demeanor. All my life, I have been taken for someone older, and that’s what you hear in my music. People have told me that my music brings an old-school vibe to listeners. What makes me different is my content. Not only do I provide a great beat, I also bring meaningful lyrics that would catch the attention of listeners.
If you could collaborate with ANY artist/band… Who would you choose and why?
AM: Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds is someone I have always wanted to collaborate with. I have the utmost respect not only as a performer but as a songwriter and producer. He is responsible for a lot of the great R&B classics we know and love. I feel that Babyface would not only be a great collaborator but also a great mentor to learn from.
Out of all the songs you’ve released, what do you think is your Best song and why?
AM: Out of the songs that I have released so far, I would say that “My Destination” is my best song. I feel that it’s a song that everyone can relate to. That reason is that we have all been in a situation when we were trying to accomplish something and someone has tried to bring us down. “My Destination” is a track that would give listeners the motivation to go after what they want.
Between creating in the studio OR performing live on stage, which is your most enjoyable one and why?
AM: Well, to be honest, I made my debut during the pandemic, so far I’ve experienced the studio mostly. However, I’ve always enjoyed performing in front of an audience growing up.
What would you consider the most successful or proudest moment in your music career, so far?
AM: So far, my proudest moment so far is “My Destination” reaching number one on the IndieTop Chart in November.
What inspires you the most about the music industry these days?
AM: What inspires me the most about the industry today is the empowerment that today’s artists have. As you know it’s not easy being an independent artist, but these artists have the talent, the freedom, and power to make a change. They don’t have to rely on a record label to promote themselves. Investing in yourself is the best decision anyone can make.
What kind of impact do you want to make with your music?
AM: For me, it’s more than about making music. It’s about making memories as well as having a career with longevity. While I’m in a creative state of mind, I ask myself: Will people be listening to this ten, twenty, or thirty years from now? Are people going to be listening to my music when I am no longer here? If the answer is “YES” to all of these questions, then I know I accomplished something.
