When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
Ever since I was a little kid, I spent a lot of time invested in listening to music. I would listen for hours and my favorite songs would remain on repeat. It became more than just listening as I began dissecting the song into each rhythm, beat, and instrument.
I grew to appreciate all the parts: the lyrics, the sounds, the melodies. Saying this, It becomes clear that I was always felt connected to music. However, it was not until I got to college where I became friends with musically inclined people that I really began to consider it a passion.
They were the first people to ever hear me sing and the first ones to give me confidence that I actually had talent. After I started releasing music, I realized that this is what makes me truly happy and what I want to do for the rest of my life. I don’t care about the money or fame, I just want the world to listen to my music and have a good time with it.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
I feel that I have been influenced by many artists and sounds. I think it is important to keep an open mind in music and you never know what works or what doesn’t until you try it. However, I do try to make my music a reflection of who I am and my vibe.
Since the beginning, I have wanted my music to be a reflection of my truest, authentic self. I don’t try to imitate anyone and want to always remain this honest version of myself. This is why my biggest goal has been to have my music sound as genuine as possible.
On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?
For my latest single, “Solo Pa Mi”, I wanted to share my perspective on a common story: the rollercoaster that is falling in love. I wanted to express the emotions, feelings, and thoughts that come with this. The song progresses by sharing superficial parts like wanting to go on dates to the more internal thoughts of wanting to get to know her.
It even goes into the more personal feelings of love like how just by looking at her, the entire world disappears and I forget about everything else, even simple things like my name! I’m pretty sure I’m not the only person that has felt this way, which means that the song is relatable. I like this because it means I can really connect and relate with my listeners.

What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
I would say that one of the biggest challenges I face when I work on a song is that I try to reach a certain level of perfection. The issue with this is in the process of trying to reach that standard, I get frustrated and begin overthinking.
However, this attribute has been beneficial to my musical career. It forces me to come up with a good craft. At the end of the day, this is art. Art can be very “tasteful”, meaning that some people might find it enjoyable and other people might not.
So, I try to remind myself to live in the moment and enjoy every second of my passion. It is when I get that feeling of satisfaction, that is when I know I got something.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
As of now, no. Do I have the drive and ambition that I can be one of the best in the future? Absolutely. I’m confident about it.
What are your plans for the near future?
I have many songs yet to release. Many of which are in collaboration with different and very talented producers. But my plan is to gain as much audience as possible, keep releasing music and improve my marketing game.
Eventually, I want to release a couple of EPs. I’m leaving my album for later as I am hoping that by that time, I will have already developed a substantial following.
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shoutouts?
Firstly, Dios. None of this would be possible if God hadn’t given me this beautiful talent that I have. I want to especially thank my family. My dad has been my rock and my #1 supporter. My great friends Andres (aka La Makina), Tommy, Miranda, Johnny, Brandon, and Kato.
Daria and Mia Rose, always supporting me. They have been the greatest team to have on this ride. My good friend and the first producer to believe in me, Josué Pernett. There’s a lot of people and good friends supporting me and who have been a part of this journey. The list is endless, but they know who they are.
How can fans find you?
They can find me on Spotify, Apple Music, and every single streaming platform. They can also find me on Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter, @bobbymoonx. My DM is always open for any advice or any help needed!
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Simple, get obsessed with it. Believe in yourself and in God’s plan. Be consistent.
