Earlier this week I had the opportunity to talk with the up-and-coming artist Renzo. I know of Renzo because we hail from the same area of Corpus Christi, TX, and I was thrilled to find out that he is now creating his own music!

Renzo is a Contemporary R&B singer and has recently released a few singles on music streaming apps. I reached out to him to talk about his music, inspirations, future releases, and live performances!

Cassidy Segovia: Hey! How are you doing today?

Renzo: I’m doing good!

CS: So how old are you currently? And where are you residing?

R: I’m 20, and currently residing in Corpus Christi,TX

CS: How long have you been interested in music? And making music?

R: I’ve been interested in music since I was three (due to Kelly Clarkson) and I’ve been making it for around five years now!

CS: Nice! Do you have any overall inspirations for your music?

R: I’d say my biggest inspirations are Stevie Wonder and Donald Glover. A third being DEAN.

CS: Those are amazing choices. DEAN is super underrated here in the States, but he’s still great! Are those artists where you get your sound from?

R: For sure, those are the artists that I take the most influence from.

CS: How would you describe your sound/genre?

R: Um, I’m not even sure I have a sound right now. All of the things I’ve made that are unreleased are very different from one another. But I guess if I were to categorize it, I’d most likely say it’s Contemporary R&B as of now.

CS: I definitely hear the Contemporary R&B, and almost “bedroom-pop” feel in your newest singles, “Pisces” and “Senior Party.” Do you have a story behind those two singles?

R: “Pisces” is about two of my exes, one of which actually was a Pisces (as her zodiac sign). Definitely not a hit piece though, I just felt like writing a song in my feelings. “Senior Party” is me writing if I were to go to the Texas senior party; a senior dance tradition. I never went, haha.

CS: That’s understandable! Songwriting is definitely therapeutic in that sense and as listeners we can relate to the feelings of the artists we listen to. And I can only imagine how “Senior Party” sounds live! Are you planning to play any live-sets after COVID rates drop?

R: I’m definitely thinking about it! Some of my friends in Houston are trying to get me to perform soon!

CS: Performing in Houston sounds like a dream! Are you looking into performing at a venue or house show?

R: It will be a little festival thing, but I’d like to do some small and intimate shows at shops, cafes, etc.

CS: That’s even better! Are you planning on releasing a full-length album in the future?

R: I’ll try to create a full-length project or EP very soon, but right now I’m more concerned on trying to make & release music at a constant rate.

CS: Sounds great! Is there a way for KTSW readers to reach you or your music?

R: You can reach me on Spotify and Soundcloud by searching Renzo. As well as Instagram @villelobos.

CS: Thank you! And thank you for taking time out to talk to KTSW 89.9 today!

R: No, no. Thank you!

Overcoming Writer’s Block

By Lea Mercado Web Content Assistant Manager As a writer, times of inspiration and frustration often fluctuate. Unfortunately for us, the latter tends to be most prevalent. For artists of all kinds, whether they are painters, musicians, or creators of any kind, coming to a blazing halt in the middle of a project is inevitable. So, the question arises, what do you do when you can't create?   I've struggled with writer's block […]
