DJ Do$ Lopez – All Female Pop Mix featuring CienTell
What type of music you do?
— My style of R&B/Pop fused with Hip Hop Stage name: I’m a solo artist and I go by the name, Cien Tell.
When did you start doing music?
–‐ I started about 3 years ago working with a gospel artist, then I realized that wasn’t the route I wanted to go. I grew up singing in the choir and at church so that pressure to do gospel was on me heavy. Up until a year ago, I started wiring R&B songs and working with a few producers, then I started working with Jazatopia of Jazatopia Ent, the producer of my first single, “Baddest Chick”. That’s currently on Itunes. Another producer I’m working with, Freeze, produced my 2nd single, “Slow” which is available for free download on Soundcloud (FMF Records) My debut EP “Get To Know Me” will release this June, along with a mixtape sometime in May.
–‐ I love music, whether I’m singing to it, dancing to it or simply supporting another artist. I was born with a natural gift of rhythm. It took me years to realize that being a musician is what I’m supposed to be doing. I spent many years, great years, dancing back up for local artists, dance companies and choreographers. I felt like I was time for me to pursue my own music career and to share with the world my story and life experiences. It takes courage and confidence to be a musician and for anyone who aspires to do it, just do it fearlessly.
