Dr. Steeve Coupeau sits down with artist, K-per Lucem, for one-on-one interview after his performance at MaseTV.com's “Who's Next” Music & Fashion Showcase on June 22, 2013.
When and how did you start playing and performing? I started writing songs when I was 10 years old along with my brother and childhood friend. I remember us performing our hip hop rendition of the Jackson 5’s ‘I Want You Back’ on stage for A Black History Month event. People were saying how awesome of a job we did, and we were pretty young so the audience was thrilled. It was something that we all remember even to this day. It was exciting for us, and even our families. I didn’t really start playing and producing music until I got to high school where I learned to play the saxophone. I joined the school band my first year there and it was cool. Not only did it show me what it felt like to be a part of something, but also showed me something that was truly a part of me. I was also dope because I was able to get out of a few classes from time to time. Overall, I’ve come to learn a lot and I just look forward to continuing to grow.
What theme traverses your musical repertoire and how do you select those themes? I work to be as versatile as possibly, my music reflects my personality. I look to create music that manages to stimulate my character, being able to have people appreciate is just icing on the cake. When making music, I tend to convey my urban lifestyle and capitalist mentality as well as passion and appreciation for all which God has made.
Are there any musical icons that influence your style and/or sounds? Why do you admire them? When it comes to my sound, I cannot say any musical icons have influenced me personally. It’s just been something I had naturally and have worked to groom personally. However, I really do admire musicians like Diddy, Jay-Z, Ryan Leslie, Eminem, Future, Lil Wayne, Trey Songz and The Weeknd. They make music that my ear tends to draw toward. I feel like their music does influence my personal style in some degree.
What is your fondest memory either in terms of music creation or public performance? Having the opportunity to produce my first album “Everlasting” has been one of the fondest memories I’ve had. Working with the various artists that were featured on the compilation, I was also in total creative control when it came down to a majority, if not all aspects of the project. Plans were executed which gave me the ability to successfully put my project out there and continue to excel. I appreciate all who were apart of making that happen and look forward to returning the favor.
You recently produced a documentary called “The Myth beyond Fifth”. What can our viewers expect from your documentary? The Myth beyond Fifth is very insightful. The director, Azuree Lyman, managed to express the perception of one of New York’s well-known neighborhoods. Many people seem to generalize the Upper Eastside and the people from there as one particular class. Through the interview of several performers, the presentation of various ways of life was conveyed as well as the life of the artists. There’s more to Yorkville, NYC than most would assume.
