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

Hi Memar, why did you pursue a creative career?
I chose to pursue and artistic/creative career because that is how I best express myself. My artistic/creative outlet is music. Music to me is something that can be so versatile and accommodating to anyone.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My music is an expression of who I am, where I’ve been and what I experienced. My artistry is different from others because I tell my story. I got to where I am today by taking it one day at a time and enjoying the journey. The journey is not easy but when I see and hear people enjoying my music it makes it all worth it.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to my late sister, Tiffany. I would also like to dedicate this to my family, friends, fans, and supporters who has stuck by my side and encouraged me to keep going.
