HHO: What would be your dream collaboration with any rapper or producer?

HHO: How has the response from your fans been on this record?
Evan Michael Green: Alot of my fans were shocked at the song and video because it is one of the first tracks where I’m not full on singing. This was more of a vibe track as opposed to me singing all of the parts. I’ve had alot of positive response in this new direction and I couldn’t be more excited for future tracks.
HHO: What artists do you listen to the most?
Evan Michael Green: It really depends on the day. Some days its Michael Jackson. Some days its Jay-Z. Some days its Drake. Since I play 6 different instruments, everyday is a little different.

HHO: What are you doing that others are not?
Evan Michael Green: Nothing against artists who release a lot of tracks every year, but the difference between myself and others is that I’m taking my time to perfect my songs and my craft. I feel like in this day and age everyone is trying to get as many tracks as possible which makes the quality of the songs suffer. I want to body every track that I put out.
HHO: How can your fans reach you?
