Q

My boyfriend introduced me to you, and we both adore your music! His dream is to see you in concert. Are there any future events on the East Coast around NC? I'd love to get tickets at least somewhere in the stadium so he can see your performance live. Thank you!

First off, sorry I missed your question. Thanks for reaching out. Ironically, enough I was just contacted about doing something in Durham, NC in January. I'll be sure to send out an update via email in the next few weeks.

Peace to you both.

Cise, Funky DL, Marcus D and me just finished a new song together. No official release date yet but it should be dropping soon.

Q

Hey Substantial, any plans to perform a show in London? Would love to come see you play!


Substantial responded on 06/21/2018
A

Peace,

I thought I answered this a month ago but apparently I didn't and for that I'm sorry. I was in London last year. Maybe I'll be back in 2019. No plans etched in stone yet.

Peace and thanks reaching out.

Q

Hello there!

I've been listening to your music ever since I discovered Nujabes. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for creating what you've created. In many ways your music has inspired me to live a fuller, more meaningful life. I have one question: what's the best piece of advice or life lesson you've learned over the years that has helped you get to where you are today? Thank you, and god bless.

Sincerely,

Spencer Sekulin

Peace Spencer,

Thank you for listening. I truly appreciate it.

As far as advice, something I live by is choosing not to complain about things I don't plan on do anything about. If I see something that bothers me in my personal life or the world, I come up with a plan on how I change it whether it's by a lot or little. But if I know that the person I'm talking to, or I, have no intension or doing something about it, I end those conversations as quick as they start. Protect your energy at all cost and discern what's worthy of it to maximize your impact on the world.

Stay in PEACE.
Substantial

Q

What would you say is the greatest hardship for an up-and-coming musician to overcome? How did you overcome this barrier?


Substantial responded on 03/27/2018
A

Self doubt. It's something you never really completely get over. At some point, I finally started to believe that I deserved to be successful considering the amount of work I put in. Then I learned the importance of redefining success for yourself based on your dreams and reality.

Q

Hey Substantial, is there any chance you or Marcus D will collab with Joey Badass ? I wish it happens ?
Love from Saudi Arabia ?


Substantial responded on 02/24/2018
A

Peace. No plans at the moment because neither of us know him personally but I dig his stuff and if the opportunity presented itself, I'd be down.

Q

Man I didn't know you were coming to SF! Just saw the email about the show tonight. Have fun in the city!


Substantial responded on 07/06/2017
A

Yep. We've been promoting the west coast tour for a while now. Definitely had the info in the last few emails we sent out. Sorry you're gonna miss out. :(

We will. Thanks! Catch you next time.
