Astyle Alive Signs Houston’s Own Shyerome To Alive Enterprise

Shyerome is a revolutionary Houston based artist who has recently inked a production deal with Astyle Alive’s Alive Enterprise — it is a one-year production deal with media management and branding. In this interview, Shyerome reveals the triggers behind his music career and his inspiration when creating music. Let’s have a look;

How did you start making music, and what are your most significant moments, both personally and musically, since then? 

Back when I was roughly 12, I started freestyling at the basketball courts with the neighborhood kids in freestyle battles we had. Two of my uncles (Albert and Tray) made beats, and Tray recorded lyrics. So from the age of 12 on, I always wrote, whether it be poetry or actual song lyrics; in total, I have over 300 compositions! The second half of this question requires a little thought. 

My most significant personal moment would be whenever I got a scholarship for my athletic abilities, but in all honesty, it’s a tie with me surviving my motorcycle accident on 07/15/15. However, my most significant music moment would be whenever I recorded with Stunna Bam. 

Simply because, as an established Houston artist, he provided a lot of insight as to what to expect. Two other comparable moments would be whenever I met my current manager, and the last would be whenever I met my producer. 

What inspired Guidance?  

So the story behind Guidance is that it’s a letter to God or whatever higher power there may be. It begins with the “Footprints in the Sand” poem, and it’s an ongoing analogy throughout the song. Then I go on to talk about what’s going on in my life and everything I’m going through—dealing with losses, both musically and personally. 

Meaning people who are essentially fake in what they represent, saying they want to be a part of the movement Drake and I are creating, but they aren’t willing to put in the time, effort, or energy when given valuable information to advance their music career; and personally with deaths and losses, whether it be people just leaving my life or actually passing away. Signified in lines like “count on one hand people having my back” and “I’m just tired/ many nights I cried from my homies dying/ blinded my arrogance/.” 

I had a lot of things holding me back, both mentally and in my life. Whether it’s emotions or people, I feel many of the things I’ve done previously still impede me from moving forward. But to summarize it all, I always write songs about what I’m going through to connect with anyone going through something that may be relatable to what I’m going through. 

Major influences when you started recording and at the moment? 

This question is always a favorite of mine; I love 2pac, still have, and always will. Most songs I make typically have choruses, so I’m inspired by people like Bone Thugs-n-harmony and Akon with the style of chorus, India Arie, Erykah Badu, Mary J Blige, and Nelly for the harmonies and tonality and little subtle background voices. Pac, Nas, and Z-ro for the verses’ meaning, Eminem for the flow switches and transitions and contorting of the words. So it’s a schlew of people who I draw inspiration to make a complete song. 

Family and friends’ reaction to you making music? 

Honestly, for the first few years, my parents didn’t ever hear a song of mine due to my uncertainty of how they would react, but now, my family is my biggest supporter; they always give me an honest opinion that I can genuinely rely on. They hear all the rough cuts before it even hits the media, so I believe they’re huge fans. As far as my friends, they were always huge supporters of my music, vision, and movement! A small group of close friends always get access to the song a day before it’s available to the masses. 

Directions, future projects, and moves in music career? 

So, I have a management team that will help take me to the level we aspire to reach! I have worked with Stunna Bam (an artist from Houston), Kayla Nicole, and many others. I also have songs being placed for both TV and Film, along with two full-length studio albums waiting to finish production to release, one being called “Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day” and the other being called “When Rome Falls.” They’re part of a conceptual series called “Black Sheep Chronicles.”
