“Don’t wait. A lot of people are waiting around for something to happen.”

Meet Cue.

What advice would you give to your younger self? “Actually pay attention in school, don’t be a class clown and follow your goals. Don’t let anybody tell you to wait to do anything. Just do it as soon as you think about it.”

What is your biggest challenge right now? “I know what I want to do but just finding out how to start and like where to start and finding a good audience for it. I DJ. I make EDM and house music. It’s just finding a good crowd, man, and figuring out what to do and who likes it and doesn’t like it.”

I know the music is important, but a lot of it is self-promotion too right? “Yeah, self-promotion and finding your niche and finding out what the people like. That’s pretty much it. And you have to be able to take negative feedback.”

Are you ok with that? Can you handle it? “Yeah, I like feedback because it helps a lot. Some people don’t like it. If you tell me what you don’t like, I’ll figure it out and I’ll make something better and you’ll like it after that.”

Where do you want to be in ten years? “I want to be a DJ at festivals. Yeah, big festivals like Ultra, Tomorrowland, stuff like that. Like in Germany, Miami…”

If you could put a billboard up in Charlotte, what would it say? “Don’t wait. A lot of people are waiting around for something to happen.”

Technical Notes: I used a reflector to even out the light on Cue’s face.
