Meet Ejay Mallard

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ejay Mallard.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
Los Angeles & Houston have been the settings and proved to be life’s greatest teachers, behind experience, for him. The cities provided much-needed joy and pain that helps mold him into a young man that carries hate in his vision but love in his heart.

Through the classic tale of good vs evil lies a young man trying to overcome the struggles of his relationship while attempting to find its beauty. Ejay Mallard is not only an extraordinary artist, but a very intriguing individual as well. His mannerisms, the way he moves, speaks, and his outlooks on life makes him seem almost as if he’s been here before.

With “High Hopes.”, Ejay Mallard embraces his own insecurities in relationships, and transforms that pain into music everyone can relate to. “As an artist, I want to be able to make people feel emotions from my music to the point that even if they never went through what I’m talking about they’ll still visualize themselves in that position” says Ejay Mallard. His straight forward approach and witty wordplay puts Ejay in a class of his own. Through every resounding melody to the last vocal harmony, “High Hopes.” gives you a vision of the episodes of Mallard’s story–one soundbite at a time.

Please tell us about your art.
I am an artist, singer/songwriter, producer, and everything else that falls under the music umbrella. I have always been captivated by the way music affects one’s mood. As an artist, I want to be able to make people feel emotions from my music to the point that even if they never went through what I’m talking about they’ll still visualize themselves in that position. I want people to feel a change of heart when listening to my music. Whether it be an alteration in mood, character, or whatever, I want others to feel genuinely taken away from my music. My message is simple — “heartfelt.” It’s been tattooed on my chest for years now, and that’s what I want to share.

Choosing a creative or artistic path comes with many financial challenges. Any advice for those struggling to focus on their artwork due to financial concerns?
Take a chance, and be risky. A lot of people are talented in this world; some are placed in positions that they don’t need to try hard to be successful. For others, like myself, it takes sacrifice and consistency. If you want to be successful you have to invest in yourself when no one else will. How do you expect someone to pay you thousands upon millions of dollars, if you aren’t willing to pay yourself? If you are serious about what you are doing, then you have to take that leap of faith.

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
