Delivering Hot Shows: Sizzle Exclusive Q&A

Sizzle Red Hot

Check out the interview with Sizzle exclusively on Rude Boy Lifestyle Magazine.

RBL: What is the meaning of your name Sizzle? How did you get it and what is the significance?
I used to hear rappers use the word “sizzle” in their raps and I liked the way it sounded. I always deliver a “hot show” when I am on stage! I give it my all. My friends would also ask me to spit a hot verse so I just stuck with the name Sizzle.

Can you tell us about the music scene in your area? How is it like? How are the other artists?
The music scene in Northern California is pretty hot. There’s a lot of hidden talent in the area.

How did your friends and family first think about your career?
My younger brother, Alex Aldama, says, “I didn’t expect him to take his music career seriously growing up, but now that he’s actually doing it and it’s going alright. I’m proud of him.”

What are some of your favorite bands out right now?
Artists that teach me a lot about how to sing and compose songs are very influential to my music career. Artists such as Michael Jackson help me strive for making songs on an album that are thrilling. When I listen to George Michael’s music I hear subtle sung lyrics overlaid with a catchy danceable instrumental such as his songs “Amazing” or “Hard day.” My favorite singers that I listen to daily are Avant, Joe, and R. Kelly.

When I prep up for my shows I sing songs from Avant and Joe to warm up my vocal chords. I love their melodies and how they are so soulful when they sing. I strive to be soulful when making R&B music. Listening to these artists stimulates my creativity.

What keeps you going in this tough music economy? How has it changed you overall?
My love of creating music never ends. It changed me in a way that my drive is stronger than it ever was. I keep going; you have to persevere and never give up if you really want it.

What are some of your focuses outside of music? Do you have family or other businesses around?
I studied and practiced Art vigorously. I have an A.A. in Art. I would draw and paint murals as well as create comic book art. I always had a sense of enjoyment when drawing. Creating things and watching your project come to life is very rewarding. I love to draw super heroes like Venom, Wolverine, Spiderman, and Batman.

What advice can you give to the other small artists that are just starting out?
The only suggestion I could give another artist is be humble about what it is you do. Don’t ever over rate yourself to where you think you’re too good for something. It doesn’t matter if you have an audience of 1 or 100,000, you always have to go out there and give it 110%. Don’t ever think you’re too good for something that seems like it’s not worth your time. It just takes one person to turn your career in a 360. Stay dedicated to your craft.

What do you think the future of the music industry will look like?
It’s hard to say, but it has definitely gone digital.
