I spoke with Sean Michael Paul about his upcoming release SMP (So Many Personalities), the first in a trilogy of albums. Here are the questions I asked Sean and his responses about his new upcoming record.
Your thoughts on making the album and selecting the songs?
This CD is one third of my life’s work. I’ve been putting together songs over the years and ended up with 30 to 40 of them that meet my finicky standards. I’m releasing 10 to 12 of them at a time over the course of three CD’s (The “So Many Personalities” Trilogy).
What is the concept behind it?
The concept behind these projects are to display my versatility. I’ve always been a fan of different genres and I wanted to showcase them all in these first three albums before I picks a style and settle down.
What does completing this album mean to you, and what is next?
Completing this album is a stepping stone towards many things. Getting signed, National tours, big budget music videos and all the other successful hopes and aspirations that any artist who’s work hard dreams of. But most importantly, it’s my mark on this world. We all leave footprints of our travels in life. My legacy will be my “Rhymes A Poetry” (which is the acronym for RAP) over these instrumental depicting my story.
The CD Release takes place Friday, June 21st, 2013 at Rangatangs Nitespot in Cornwall Ontario. Admission is $10. Dj’s Woodlyn and Kitts will be spinning tunes.
