Miss Radcliffe Meets......Creole King

Creole King is a creative force, born and bred in the city of New Orleans, LA. As a child, Creole King discovered he had a flair for entertainment and love for creativity that was nourished by his home town. He would entertain his family and friends by imitating popular artists such as Jodeci, R.Kelly, LL Cool J, Dru Hill, and more. It was apparent that what began as fun and games, was a real vehicle for comedic timing and vocal abilities. Soon, music became his one true passion.
Creole King honed his talent and incorporated his love for the Lord in the youth choir at First Hollygrove Baptist Church. As he developed, he began to compete in talent shows in the greater New Orleans area. In 1999, two friends, along with his twin brother, J. Henry, formed the group, Cristal. Cristal quickly gained local success in a competitive market by performing hit songs by popular groups, such as Dru Hill and Boyz II Men. Under his leadership, Cristal performed and won the world famous Amateur Night at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, NY. After Cristal disbanded, Creole King began to sow a unique style of emotionally potent, hip hop infused, soul music that marries the passion of his hometown heritage and the influences of his youth. He has flourished on the records of other artists, and managed to maintain his own style.
Currently, Creole King is performing in several venues around the Atlanta area. He is known for his effortless charm and charisma on or off stage. Creole King is unmistakably soulful, undeniably fly, and unquestionably dope. He is “The King of Creole Soul”.


Miss R: Where do you draw inspiration from?

I can draw inspiration from a myriad of sources. I've always been aware of what I was feeling, but what developed through time and experiences was my ability to express it. I'm not the guy that just sits down or sets time aside to "write". I don't "Pimp my Muse" nor do I force inspiration, however when "the gift" begins to speak I open up and listen to it.

Miss R: Do you play any instruments?

The simple answer to that question is no, but
the weird thing is I can feel them instictively while I'm writing a song. The instrument that I connect with the most though is the guitar.

Miss R: Who are some of your favourite musicians/bands from the past and present?
Where do I  start, my favorites are Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Lauryn Hill, John Legend, Carl Thomas, Jill Scott, Ceelo Green, OutKast, Nas, Bob Marley, Bruno Mars, John Mayer, oh and I love Adele, Kings Of Leon, Emeli Sande has an amazing voice and a killer pen, Daley is severely underrated and Kendrick Lamar is the King lol

Miss R: Which other singer/musicians or producer's would you like to work with in the future?

I would like to work with producers like Mark Ronson, Salaam Remi, and I think Mike Will Made it has an amazing ear and I'm super into The Dap Kings' vintage sound. Oh yeah and if I could work with DJ Premier that would be Dope.

Miss R: So, looking back to when you were in the youth choir, competing in talent shows and being the lead in your group Cristal.. how have you developed as an artist? And what lessons have you learned on your journey so far?

I have grown immensely since then, both as an artist and as a businessman. I've learned that it won't kill me to stand alone. I've learned to work the words in a song versus working my voice to convey a message. I've also learned that there is a particular base of listeners that are mining for what I create naturally and they're looking fire the first Creole King, not the next anyone else,  lol.

Miss R: You just released your new single 'Flower' which is out now via all digital outlets. Do you have a album/EP to follow?

Currently, I'm in PBM Recording Studio working on several different types of songs and styles, they may or may not develop into an EP/Album. My desire right now is to develop an intimate relationship with a base of listeners and build on that connection. I want to earn their trust and let them grow with me.

Miss R: What message do you want your fans to take from your music?

The message want to convey is that we should NEVER exhaust the possibility that LOVE can and does happen. I want to make resonant music and look Fly doing it, lol. I want my listeners to hear my life, relate to it, grow from it, reminisce over it. I want to evoke thought and show that vulnerability is not weakness, but rather strength.

Miss R: You're currently performing around Atlanta..
Would you like to bring your shows to the UK and worldwide?

I've had my passport for awhile now, so all I'm waiting on is an opportunity to cross the pond and feel that energy and leave them with mine lol. I can't wait to rock in the UK and anywhere else in the world.

Miss R: What other interest outside of music do you have?

I have lots of interests, but I love History and Culture. I'm a fan of Mafia Movies, Star Wars, and Comic Books. I'm a legit nerd sometimes lol. I also enjoy reading, cooking and DIY projects... yep Creole King the Renaissance Man lol.

Miss R: What's your life motto?

"GOD above All else!" I believe if I keep him as my top priority he will honor my wants according to his will.

Miss R: What's next for Creole King?

I will continue to expand my brand, by consistently creating content and finding dope ways to convey my experiences and connect with people that relate to them. I'm going to continue performing live and shoot video content to compliment the music. S/O to my squad Queenie, J Henry Jazz, My PBM fam M.a.D Mike, Travis Starr, Mr. B, Rosé, John Marsee, Riley Klages, Matt Coop, Mike Mo, E. Clark, Orotund Productions and my lil sis Nicolette. #CreoleKingMusic

Miss Radcliffe Meets......Lightbourne

Miss R: When did you first start writing/rapping? 

I started rapping at the age of nine. I always loved writing poetry and short stories for school and it naturally evolved from that into lyrics over beats. The odd thing is, no one in my family or among my friends were rapping, just me. My love for Hip Hop, I believe honestly was sparked by a very iconic show in my eyes, “Video Music Box”. It is hosted by Ralph Mcdaniels and still airs to this day. I would hurry home after school to watch it everyday, such good memories.

Miss R: Who are your musical influences? 

My first major influence was Rakim. After him, definitely Da Brat, Tupac, Queen Latifah, Jay-Z, MC Lyte, Nas, and AZ. It is probably a few I’m forgetting but I tend to gravitate toward artists with substance, those that have a message to convey.
Miss R: What motivates you? 

My Wife and God. I have been with my twin flame Alicia for almost 19 years and she has always supported my vision and dreams. She believed before I did. We always have each other’s backs through the highs and the lows. She has her own set of dreams that I am hoping to help facilitate through this musical gift.

My love for God of course motivates me because knowing how he has blessed me in so many ways, none of that has to do with material items. I know that I have a true purpose here on Earth and God is seeing to it that it is carried through. So many times I gave up on the music and myself. However, all the signs and hints I received in life from random strangers confirmed to me that I was suppose to be doing music and seeing it through. That was God the whole time, never giving up on me.

Miss R: Where do you want your music to take you? 

I hope my music takes not only me, but also everyone on the journey towards truth of self and unconditional love. Also, around the world I wouldn’t mind either.

Miss R: What message do you want your fans to take from your music?

I hope to spread a message of hope, love, and joy. I aim to make music to uplift the soul and the hearts of many. Not every song probably will be "Kum ba yah" (lol) but my goal is to raise the positive vibrations that exist in the world and get back to “feel good” music.

Miss R: What are the worst and best things about being in the music industry?

Well, I am a newbie in this industry so I have not been fully exposed to the upsides and pitfalls completely as of yet. However, I love it because it showcases all kinds of talent but the negative in my eyes would be the lack of authenticity.  Some people are fraudulent and driven by ill intentions. That is not exactly the company I would choose to always have around me. However, you take the good with the bad in life.

Miss R: Tell me what you're working on now? 

As of right now, I am working on finishing up visuals for some of my songs as well as starting the writing and recording process for a new EP. That will be released probably the beginning of summer.

Miss R: Do you have any shows/tours planned?

I do not have any shows or tours lined up right now, but with the new music coming very soon, we will be lining up shows shortly after.

Miss R: Music aside, what other creative avenues would you like to explore?

I would love to go into acting, become an author and eventually become a motivational speaker. Those goals however, come second to the music and I want to give my fans all that I have to offer musically. I’m locked in on this true blessing first, and then I am DEFINITELY exploring the other ones along the way

Miss R: If you could pick any artist or producer to work with right now, who would it be?

Jay-Z. He’s a true visionary, a pure genius. I think him and I would vibe quite well together. I look forward to that day.

Miss R: Looking back from when you first started to now. How have you developed as an artist?

Lyrically, I would say I have taken it to another level. I understand hooks and melodies a lot better and my song writing has enhanced as well. I would also say I display more passion when I rap now, before I was a bit reluctant and shy to be so expressive.

Miss R: What is your life motto? 
Cherish the here and now, moments over minutes. Savor those special occasions and events with those you love and disregard the illusion of time. Also, give out the energy to others you would hope to receive back from the universe.

Any final words?....

Special thank you to you Miss Radcliffe for all of your support! New Music coming very soon, everyone please be on the lookout. You can follow me on my Instagram @_Lightbourne for updates on it all. Love and Blessing always!
