www.iam-pure.com / Growing up listening to music such as R&B, Hip Hop, New Wave, and Rock Pure’s music has a magnetic sound that appeals to fans of all ages. “As a songwriter and producer as well as a singer, I think it’s important to continue creating music and let the fans make their own decisions as to what type of music it is rather than trying to fit my music into a category.” When asked what type of artist he is, Pure responds. “I describe myself as being a worldly artist. One who creates music for the world and people of all walks of life.” His ambition and love of this art called “music” has earned him the nicknames such as “The Work-a-holic” and “The Perfectionist” from his peers. The Newark NJ native is simply in love with his craft. Struggling and hardship was a recurring theme of life growing up in the inner city as it is for many of his friends and peers. In some instances, that journey still plays a reoccurring role. Thus the reason Pure channels his energy into his true passion in life….music. “Music is my escape, my life story, my love and motivation. I just simply try to offer that gift to the world.” www.twitter.com/iampure www.facebook.com/iampure www.youtube.com/iampuremixtape
When Billy Went Bald has won a national Moonbeam Children’s Book Award. For children ages four to eight, this book was written by Julie C. Morse with her son Greg Mikrut, and draws from Greg’s own childhood cancer experiences. Midwest Book Review recently issued praise for the book: "When Billy Went Bald is about a boy who has cancer. It is cheerful, upbeat, honest, and factual. The author writes from her experience as a parent of a boy who survived his childhood cancer diagnosis and treatment. (The book) encourages children to look beyond surface differences and find a compassionate way to reach understanding and acceptance of others who may be suffering. When Billy Went Bald is an exceptional contribution to the field of children’s health and education."
Also on Conversation Crossroad will be actress, model, entrepreneur and ambassador for Habitat for Humanity's Women Build Campaign Monika Schnarre.
Newark, New Jersey native, Pure, has been buzzing since first releasing his mixtape in 2010, titled I Am Pure. Not confining himself to any genre, his diverse musical influences can be heard his latest singles The Stars and club banger Touch It, Bring It. Both have been well received from major NYC radio stations including Hot 97, Power 105, and Kiss 98.7. Growing up in the Brick City, dominated by gangs, drugs, and gun violence, music was Pure’s outlet and motivation to stay above that.
He joins me to discuss the movement behind his buzzing single Touch It, Bring It, his latest music project, and why his sound is a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. Listen to the singles at the links provided The Stars and Touch It, Bring It. Learn more about him here.
