Who was Paxton Ingram before the voice?
“Paxton Ingram before the voice was a kid working three jobs just trying figure it out , trying book as many sessions in the studio as I could afford, hustling you know singing at my church working at Urban Outfits doing the damn thing man trying to get to this point.”
Working three jobs!! Wow when did you realise that singing is what you wanted to full time?
“Ever since I was a kid I knew I wanted to do something in music I was a dancer at first and got a chance to work with a lot of great artist got experience in the industry and learning what it was like to be on the video set or whatever the job was on the day, and I noticed I wanted something more I kind of did everything as a dancer and I wanted to explore what I could do as a singer so I went all in.”
What did the voice teach you as a person? Being on there going through the stages and rigorous regime and vocal sessions, what did hat bring out of you? What did you enjoy most about being on there?
“Definitely made me realise who I was as an artist more clear I knew exactly what I wanted to say what I want to sound like what I wanted to look like, what Paxton as an artist was because I was just a boy that could sing and I was really trying to search what I was going to say as a platform so that definitely made more aware of who I am.”
