We had the good fortune of connecting with Adam Ramey and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Adam, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
When I started this, I knew timing would be everything so I made sure I had a highly structured plan and method of release. I knew I needed to hammer home image and branding with that as well. I wanted to hit hard and I wanted it to be effective and stick with the audience.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m in a band called Dropout Kings. We call the music we make “trapmetal” which is essentially metal music with trap/Hiphop elements mixed in. What sets us apart from others like us is the fact we have two frontmen. One from the world of metal and one from the world of Hiphop. Our unique dynamic really adds that feeling you don’t get from a lot of other bands like us. It was a long road to get where we are now but it was all through hard work, timing, and branding. With all those things combined, it added to the success of the band. We planned meticulously and created effective ad campaigns that broke the band and got us two record deals so far. It wasn’t easy at all. We had plenty of trials along the way, but what we did wrong we learned from. That’s the most important thing. I always say “you can’t be smart, until you’re dumb once.” It’s okay to make a mistake. Just try not to make it twice. I want the world to know that if we can do this, anyone can if you have a clear goal in mind and a plan in place and the means to execute it.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
I really like this place called Hanny’s in Phoenix. It’s got a really cool vibe and it’s pretty fancy. I’d take them to Casey Moore’s as well to drink because that’s one of my go-to’s. I’d also recommend everyone to go to Sedona just because I love it there and people need to experience that place. I’m all about energy and Sedona is jam packed full of it. That place makes you feel things, so I always encourage others to go there that have never been.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d really like to thank my friends and family, the fans, my band, and the team that we have backing us. Without all of them this would all be impossible and pointless. People give you something to strive for and these people push me to be the best version of myself everyday
