Interview: Mattykevs

Mattykevs

So Mattykevs, where are you from? What’s your story?

I’m from New York. I grew up in a small town just outside the city. My story is one of overcoming a lot of adversity in order to be where I am today. I worked hard to now say I am a musician and entrepreneur helping others make their dreams come true. I love music and I love seeing people succeed with me. 

How did you come up with your artist name, Mattykevs?

So Mattykevs is actually a combination of my first and last name. It’s sort of like the name people would call out at a party or that my friend group would call me, and it stuck. People sometimes mispronounce it and say “MattyKeys” but it’s “MattyKevs.” 

When and why did you begin making music?

I think my first time making music had to be before I can even remember. It’s always been in my blood and something that runs in my family. I decided to take music seriously when I was about 10 years old and haven’t stopped since. The reason I started making music was because I felt it as a way of expressing myself and also connecting with people around me.

Who has had the most influence on you as an artist?

I think its got to be the bands like Hawthorne Heights, chiodos, or even Silverstein. People don’t expect me to say that when I answer but those screamo bands of the early 2000’s really shaped who I am as a musician and as a person today.

Talk me through your creative process. What goes into producing a Mattykevs smash hit?

For me it’s got to be me in the studio with an engineer or producer that Im already cool and comfortable with. We like to throw mini parties when we record and have a good time. We get snacks and everything and everyone has fun chilling doing whatever while we record. I also like to be alone sometimes and just make music myself. 

What advice would you give to aspiring musicians looking to make a name for themselves?

I would say that they need to make a decision that they will do whatever it takes to make it. That means making sacrifices and putting in work to get to where you want to be. Also being a kind, caring, humble, and the genuine person goes a long way.

What is your most recent release, and what inspired it?

Fiji is my most recent release and it was inspired by a summer of really good times and laughs with friends that also make music. We hit the studio and made music that you can dance to and have fun at a club on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean.  

What are your thoughts on the current state of music? Do you prefer to fit in or are you more of a trendsetter?

I always like to do my own thing in whatever Im doing. As far as the current state of music I think there’s talent out there you just have to know where to find it. I think the industry is changing rapidly with technology and that it’s really interesting to see what’s happening with everything.

When all is said and done, what do you want your legacy to be? How do you want to be remembered?

I want to be remembered as someone who helped others no matter what, and did the right thing to see people succeed. To me success is being happy and content. You’re only as successful as the smile you can bring to someone’s face.

‘RoboCop Actress’ Nancy Allen is planning to release a book about her memoirs

Best known for her roles in important De Palma films such as Carrie, Blowout, Dressed to Kill and the hyper famous RoboCop film saga, retired actress Nancy Allen is still a public figure that could have a come back to the screens sooner than what we may think.

Nancy Allen is well known in the SCI FI fan groups for her recurring portrayal of officer Anne Lewis in the three consecutive films of the saga (1987, 1990 and 1992), opposed to Peter Weller and Robert John Burke in them.

Officer Anne Lewis, RoboCop’s dedicated partner, fills a spot in the iconic list of SCI FI and action heroines from the 80’s, 90’s, that brought ‘girl power’ to the screen such as Lt. Ripley, (Sigourney Weaver, Alien 1979), Sarah Connor (Terminator, 1984), and opened way in Hollywood for more female action leads in forth coming years.

So, for the RoboCop fans, we have exciting news. On April 14, 2022 Nancy agreed to be live-interviewed by writer Eva Rojano on her RoboCop fan fiction dedicated Facebook page “RoboCop Enhanced Reality” revealing that although she has a full schedule working as an executive director for the American organization WeSpark, she is not entirely dismissing the idea to return to the big or small screen, if a good script/project is presented to her.

Eva Rojano who is also known in the RoboCop fan groups for her ongoing RoboCop fanfiction series and for creating original characters for both screenwriter and producer Edward Neumeier and Nancy Allen in her bestselling novels, was in charge of bringing the news to us.

Mrs. Allen was live on Facebook on a zoom stream for almost an hour answering questions from active viewers and letting us know that she is up to adapt to modern times and TV on demand systems such as Netflix or Disney +. She also revealed she’s proud of having worked in France, filming “Les Patriots” back in 1994 and she saluted her French fans on screen.

Finally, the long-loved officer Lewis revealed to us she is working on writing her memoirs! Although there is no release date for her autobiography, she promised to keep us posted about the plans to release a book that will tell the real story of Nancy, written by herself. Perhaps a biopic can come after. Everything can happen these days.

The Rise of Woren Webbe Hits 100 Million Views Reported 173 Million Dollar Net Worth

Published

Woren Webbe hit 100 million views on YouTube with his first album emotions

Woren Webbe, is a singer-songwriter and melody maker. At the age of 11, Webbe joined an English music choir where he got a massive opportunity to work with Indian jazz music legends like Laura Santana and Babush Santa. He started working for theatre groups, doing jingles, advertising and music scoring. In 2004 he left the music because he was more interested and focused on his studies.

During 2006 Webbe got over his broken love life, after having been inspired to write sad heartbreaking music which reflected his own situation. This changed his attitude making him more devoted to his music. In 2008 he sent his music to one of the most popular DJ’s in India, “DJ KARMA”, who was the only person playing Hiphop and R&B music in India at the time.

Woren Webbe debuted in the Asian Underground scene for his own new debut album, totalling over 1200000 views on MySpace and gaining over 120,000 fans on Facebook. Webbe reached #1 all over Asia in 2009.

Michael Jackson was an American singer, songwriter, and dancer. Dubbed the “King of Pop”, he is regarded as one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century. Over a four-decade career, his contributions to music, dance, and fashion, along with his publicized personal life, made him a global figure in popular culture. Jackson influenced artists across many music genres; through stage and video performances, he popularized complicated dance moves such as the moonwalk, to which he gave the name, as well as the robot. Woren Webbe is also one of them who is inspired by the creations of Michael Jackson.

From beginning to end, this is quality R&B; some upbeat, some soothing, some thoughtful, some nostalgic, but all worth listening to. In general, I find it difficult to find a male vocalist who delivers melodically; with lyrics you can understand, and play around people of all ages, sex and creed. Webbe’s lyrics, tempo, and sound is also relevant to many, varied emotions and moods.


Woren Webbe delivers on all counts and could easily become one of the top, lasting performers in the R&B genre. He’s a soulful crooner and he gets you hooked in the emotions of his songs, like on “What About Us” performed together with Efinxcase. The tears just may fall on this one as you feel the boy’s pain. The song takes it back to the origins of R&B lyrically, pain and heartbreak and most of all, relativity.

Woren Webbe’s voice smooths over every track he does, proving to past fans and newcomers alike that he is here to stay. Listen to “Dreams” and “Don’t Walk Away” where he infuses pop melodies with rich, soulful productions. His vocal range and timbre, creates both strong emotion and sentiment for his songs.

Like many of his contemporaries, Woren Webbe seems to possess some love and respect for old-school R&B, and it shows through his solid song-writing skills and his soulful, melodious vocals. This is certainly among the best indie R&B I’ve heard in a while. Webbe is the real deal. He mixes a bit of the 80’s and 90’s R&B and Soul, with today’s modern urban sound, and it comes out sounding great.

Woren Webbe is a significant artist who certainly has a passion for music and best of all, anybody can enjoy his songs, regardless of genre, because they are truly beautiful, and that’s what music is: an art form able to motivate and uplift, with the beauty of its melody and rhythm. Few do it better than Woren Webbe!
