We had the good fortune of connecting with Kieng and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kieng, how has your work-life balance changed over time?
Anyone who knows me knows I work a lot, even when I’m not in the studio 9.9 times out of 10 I’m working. When I first started the studio I was also working a 9-5 (More like a 6-230) then i would hit the studio till midnight and do it all over again the next day so i never seen my family, after about a year once the studio started managing it self i looked inwards even though my circle still had my back Me as Kieng understand how important they are so i told my family every month we will leave the state just to make memories together and i can tell you asof today 5/18/22 We just got back in town from palm spring and we made some dope memories. This is the way i should my circle i appreciate them.

Take this with you … People that want to be in your life only want your time … not your money or name just your time, so give it to them.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
i hear a lot of people say “live your niche” and this has stuck with me from the first time I heard it and i live and die by it … I eat , Bleed and die for music.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Day in the Life with Kieng my BF live in the state but he is on the other side of the state we see each other every 2 weeks or so typically we just start with catching up with drinks in the am then lunch comes up and one of our fav places is sakura sushi lunch and drinks then we head to the studio to play around and have more drinks .. most of the time we make a song or 2 then say see you later love you to death bro bro
