Getmybuzzup: How did you get started in the first place?
Adam Alyan: Music has always been a therapeutic creative outlet for me. I remember listening to the radio as a kid and feeling so special. Something about music attracted me to the point where everyone would tell me to stop singing already. I was never the best vocalist, but I was hitting them notes and going for it. It took away a lot of my worries and fears so I stuck with it because I love it. I take lessons and work on my craft every day.

Getmybuzzup: Who are some of your inspirations in the music industry?
Adam Alyan: I’m inspired by different things from different people actually. For example an artist’s catalog, a producer’s unique sound, a songwriter’s diversity, an artist’s #1 hit records, etc. I’m also very heavy on the business side, so witnessing how a lot of independent labels have grown is beyond inspiring. As far as sheer talent, of course, the greats… Michael, Whitney, Prince, Mariah, Luther, etc. As I grew I started to enjoy artists like Usher, Trey Songs, Chris Brown, The-Dream, Neyo, etc. People like Miguel, Justin Bieber, Daniel Caesar, Frank Ocean, Dvsn, The Week’nd, Drake, etc. I’m a huge fan of all types of music. The 90’s side of me loves Hip-Hop, and the 2000’s side of me loves Rnb.
